The All Ireland Talent Show: East Auditions



The All Ireland Talent Show held its East Auditions for the second series in the Ormonde Hotel in Kilkenny on Saturday 26th and I was able to get a look into the world of showbiz (or as close as I’m ever gonna get) as I supported my cousin (she doesn’t want her name on, so I’m going to call her Jane) who was auditioning as a singer.

The auditions started at 7.00 am but the Clan of Walsh is a lazy one so we ended up joining the queue at 11.30 am. We killed a lot of time being jealous of people who had brought sweets and chairs and watching three of the crew including a cameraman interviewing people. A woman in suede clothing and lots of headscarves banged on a drum and shouted tunelessly at the poor cameraman. She was very talented. Seriously, you weren’t missing much.

At last we actually got in the door into registration, where Jane got one of those huge stickers you see on the X Factor and we were ushered into a holding area (whenever I think of those words I somehow think of farm animals) and there we waited. Cue some more waiting and then everyone who hadn’t auditioned yet including Jane were shown to a corridor with about five audition rooms and we had to endure even worse waiting until her number was called. She sang ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ by Iron and Wine and she was really good! I’m not just saying this because she’s my cousin or anything.

Them we were pointed back to the holding area and waited a little bit more. In the middle of the waiting though, a really good dance group (I’m sorry, I don’t know the name!)  jammed with a band called Pyrotechinx (I’m not sure about this one either!) which was great fun to watch.

The dance group and Pyrotechinx got through with three other acts in their group. Jane didn’t get through, but she did get on telly, which is the main thing after all!
