Last chance to enter Ireland’s Got Talent … and they want Laois acts!

The hit entertainment show, Ireland’s Got Talent, is back.

Producers are hitting the road on the lookout for the hottest variety acts around the country.

But the deadline to apply is on Sunday October 7.

Last year, Laois man Stevie James Kelly made in through to the live stages of the show.

Previous acts from the last series have had worldwide exposure, include 81 year old Evelyn Williams who is now the most watched IGT audition with over 25 million views to date – to dancer Zacc Milne who has been championed by a variety of celebrities including RuPaul.

Zacc is currently in talks with a variety of UK and American production companies.

Last year’s winners, Cork dance troupe RDC vowed the nation and walked away with €50,000 and their very own TV special which will be on Virgin Media Television later this year.

What are they looking for? 

This year, the producers say they are, “looking for absolutely everything –from the weird to the wonderful.

“If you have a strange and bizarre act, an incredibly talented pet or are part of a unique family performance, apply now for this once in a lifetime opportunity.”

To get the chance to meet the producers when they come to your town, you have to have applied online beforehand. There are no open auditions.

Ireland’s Got Talent judge Michelle Visage said: “This is the final week for your chance to apply for Ireland’s Got Talent season 2 and I REALLY want to see what I have NEVER seen before.

“Calling all strange and unusual acts, show Ireland what you’re made of! Think outside the box and let that Freak Flag fly!”

Jason Byrne said: “Ireland’s Got Talent is brilliant because people wondered if Ireland had enough talent, and yes it does.

“Everyone, in every household, can do something in Ireland. Show us what you’ve been hiding from the world.”
