Are you talented, and are you ready?
Britain’s Got Talent is coming to Kilkenny. The team will be here on the Saturday, November 24, at the MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre, between 12 and 5pm.
If you think you’ve got a talent which can impress and entertain, now is the time to show them what you’ve got. Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2019.
The show is open to any performer of any age, with any talent - all you need is a skill and star quality which you think will impress. Anything goes, from magicians to comedians to singers and acrobats to animal stars.
The show has visited the Marble City before, and of course, famously, the wonderfully-talented Presentation Choir made it all the way to the end.
“Britain’s Got Talent 2018 was a fantastic year for talent full of variety with, for the first time ever, a Comedian winning the show. We were left in stitches by runner- up Robert White, we were wiggle wining in the final with Reggae star Donchez Dacres, the incredible acrobats the Giang Brothers left us speechless and the laughs were endless with the hilarious winner
the Lost Voice Guy," says executive producer Charlie Irwin.
"Now, we can’t wait to see what talent you’re ready to bring to the BGT stage in 2019. Anyone can apply - there is no age limit and we are looking for all kinds of talents. So, if you feel you have something special to show us, no matter what it is, then make sure you apply, you never know where it might take you!”
Following his BGT win, Lee Ridley, also known as the Lost Voice Guy, sold out his entire Edinburgh Fringe run and had to add on extra performances. In 2019 Lee will be setting out on a UK tour, he is currently writing the second series of his popular Radio 4 sitcom Ability and has been commissioned to write about a book about disability.
Since being crowned the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2017, Tokio Myers has co-produced the Artists for Grenfell charity single in support of The London Community Foundation, has released his debut album Our Generation, the biggest classical crossover of 2017, and won the award for Breakthrough Artist of the year at the Classic BRIT Awards 2018. He’s currently working on new music.
Among the show’s successes, Susan Boyle has sold more than 23 million records worldwide, Diversity have sold-out seven nationwide tours and are about to embark on their eighth UK tour Ignite, while multi-platinum selling artist Paul Potts has sold six million records worldwide. BGT 2014 winners Collabro have had a No. 1 album and Calum Scott, Simon’s golden buzzer in 2015, was the first ever Britain’s Got Talent contestant to be nominated for a Brit Award for his single Dancing on My Own.
