All of Longford will be cheering on singer Sharyn Ward as she will be bidding for success in the Ireland's Got Talent Grand Final tonight (Sunday, April 7) at 7.30pm on Virgin Media One.

Of the six acts that progressed directly from the semi-finals, Sharyn was the only singer, with the other five qualifiers being dance acts.

However, Judges Louis Walsh, Denise Van Outen, Michelle Visage and Jason Byrne subsequently added two singing acts as wild cards for tonight's live final - Sea of Change and Sharon & Brandon. 

Sharyn's stunning rendition of Black is the Colour in last weekend's first semi-final drew universal praise from the judges with Jason telling her ‘you have a chance of winning this whole competition’.
