Limerick’s Got Talent took to the road once again in its search to unearth the best local talent that Limerick City/county and its environs can produce. This year’s competition changed it’s format by having three heats shows in the South Court Hotel Tuesday 22, Wednesday 23 & Thursday 24 July with the Grand Final taking place in the Lime Tree Theatre on Friday August 15.
Once again entry was open to all genres of entertainment provided they are not full –time professionals; past entrants were especially welcome to apply. They are looking for anyone over the age of 10years old who can sing or dance, bands/groups who are getting together for the first time or been playing for a while, variety acts such as magicians, comedians, stage schools or monologues all are welcome. They also hoped to encourage singer songwriters to pen a new tune for the competition. Producer Mike O’Connor says “We were looking forward to this year’s competition with great excitement and curiosity to see how the acts and general public react to our new format especially with this being our contribution to the Limerick City of Culture celebrations. Our chosen charity this year is Enable Ireland.”
Format for the competition had three heats taking place in front of a panel of 5 judges who put three acts through with one extra act going through by a public vote and the possibility of a couple of wild cards over the heats.
The Grand Final was decided by a panel of judges who choose the overall winner sponsored by Arthurs Quay Shopping Centre as well as 5 category winners – Best vocal, best band, best dance, best Variety act and best original song.
Congrats to Shannon Garvey, overall winner of Limericks Got Talent 2014!!
