Sharon (41) and Brandon (19) are from Nurney. Sharon is a mature student and Brandon is a barman/DJ.

Sharon has been singing since she was a little girl, and Brandon has been singing from a young age with his Mam. In 2018, they entered the TG4 show ‘Realta agus Gaolta’.

They originally entered Ireland’s Got Talent as solo singers but decided to come together and enter as a duo.

Last year, Brandon ended up in a coma fighting for his life. Sharon was told by doctors to say goodbye to her son but at the last minute he pulled through. He walked away from the whole ordeal with a collapsed lung but is perfectly fine now.

Brandon said that the scare of nearly losing his life has pushed him to do things that used to scare him before and that’s why he’s applied for the show.

Singing group Vintage are part of Leah Moran’s sage school. The group is made up Caoimhe, Allie, Jade, Maggie-Sue, Ava, Anna and Breanna, who are aged between 13-17 years.

The group describe themselves as ‘talented, fun, energetic, cute, classic and different.’

Vintage was only formed a few months ago but the girls have known each other for a long time through their stage school. Ireland’s Got Talent will be their first public performance as ‘Vintage’

They feel there is a gap in the market for their type of act - a girl group with a vintage twist.

They want to bring audiences back in time with their medleys from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

Tune into Virgin Media One on Saturday, February 23 from 7:15pm to see how they get on.
