Presented by Derek Mooney, this show has searched all over the country to find the nation's most talented teens and is bringing them to your screens. After meticulously sifting through a mountain of audition tapes, the show invited 60 budding starlets to Athlone for two intense days of auditions where only 18 positions were available to go onto the studio shows. These highly sought after positions were handed out by RTE's esteemed and very qualified talent panel featuring presenter, actress and radio personality Caroline Morahan, dance choreographer Julian Benson, and vocal heavy weight Dr. Veronica Dunne. The talent pool includes unusual acts such as a classical drummer, a 13 year old Joe Dolan impersonator complete with white suit and frisky dance moves, a pair of Cork rappers and a dancing contortionist who can literally tie herself in knots. For those of you who find yourselves pondering the fate of the Operation Transformation contestants; an update show can be viewed at 8.30pm on RTE1.
