Evelyn Williams caught the hearts of the nation last night on the first episode of Ireland's Got Talent, and won the first Golden Buzzer of the new season.
In an emotional performance, Evelyn sang Send In The Clowns from the Sondheim musical, A Little Night Music. The song itself has been performed by the likes of Barbra Streisand, Judy Collins, Sarah Vaughn, Bing Crosby and many more, but Evelyn brought something special to the stage last night that was clear for all to see.
Here it is.
Wow! Wow! Wow!!! ðŸ˜®ðŸ˜®ðŸ˜®
What a performance from Evelyn! And what a first show of Ireland's Got Talent!
Here's a chance to relive Evelyn's Golden Buzzer performance one more time. Brand New: Ireland's Got Talent, continues next Saturday at 7.30pm on TV3. #GotTalentIRL pic.twitter.com/DJMHwL8ZVF
