When local lass Kerensa D’Arcy Barr emailed us out of the blue last week with a cryptic one-liner about being on Ireland’s Got Talent the following Saturday, well, to be honest, we thought this noted joker was taking the Michael.
Turns out the lady was serious. Having already recorded the show, we just wished she’d let us know more about this remarkable performance.
Come Saturday night, Kerensa joined the heavenly choir that is Sea Of Change for a storming rendition of Kesha’s This Is Me from the ridiculously popular if slightly crap musical The Greatest Showman.
Blessed with a wicked sense of humour, Featherstone quipped that, up on the Ireland’s Got Talent stage, out of a possible 90 breasts, there were 79 and a half. Which makes you wonder why they didn’t cover The Spice Girls’ 2 Become 1 instead.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the choir proved to be an emotional tour de force on the night, an army of Susan Boyles with attitude, a mission, and the battle scars to prove it. And then they finished it all by Buck Fizzing the crowd, going Full Body Positive with a topless finale. Is it any wonder that Denise Van Outen reached for that golden buzzer, automatically ensuring that Sea Of Change went through to the live final?
Perhaps Louis Walsh summed it up best when he said, “Girls, that was so uplifting, to hear that song sung by so many amazing people on one stage. It was a brilliant song, you’re brilliant people, and I think – I’m going to say it now – I think you’re going to win this competition…”
Boom, think of the fame! Of the Christmas TV special! Of the €50,000!!
On the downside, the ladies had to rub shoulders with Ireland’s answer to Davina McCall, the ever-gurning Lucy Kennedy. On the plus side, they also got up close and personal with Kim Jung Il post-sex change. The man clearly likes cleavage.
