Audiences around the world watching Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night were left wowed by the beautiful and moving performance of The Presentation School Choir, Kilkenny!

The choir, consisting of 57 girls and led by their Choral Director Veronica McCarron performed a rousing rendition of Adiemus, a new age song, written by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins. The song contains elements of African-tribal and Celtic-style melodies.

The choir programme which has been running since 1996 has achieved much success throughout Ireland, winning and placing highly in many competitions, performing with legendary artists such as Sinéad O’Connor, Mary Black and Phil Coulter and even performing for President Mary McAleese.

This awe inspiring choir then wowed the judges, live audience and television audience with their unique and stunning performance, blending together beautiful harmonies with expressive and synchronised dance movements, leading to a standing ovation and a unanimous yes vote!

Hats Off to this brilliant choir on all their hard work and dedication, it definitely shows and we wish them all the best in the live shows!
