The girls appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2016 and their performance raised the roof and had the judges in awe.

They were introduced by their leader Veronica McCarron. She said: “We know Simon loves choirs, and he loves Welsh choirs so we are here to present an Irish choir.”

Cowell then paid Veronica a compliment by telling her he liked her glasses and she looked “cute” which raised cheers and whistles from the audience.

The girls then performed and they absolutley smashed it with the judges grinning from ear to ear and the audience members on their feet.

The choir is made up from pupils at the all-girl convent school. The girls describe themselves as a community and they have competed in singing competitions across the country.

As Veronica said, Britain’s Got Talent has a history of choirs being successful. In 2012, a Welsh all-boys choir called Only Boys Aloud finished third in the show, behind opera singers Jonathan and Charlotte and winners Ashleigh her dancing dog Pudsey.

In 2015, another Welsh choir finished third, this time Côr Glanaethwy were beaten by magician Jamie Raven and another dog act with trainer Jules O’Dwyer and her dog Matisse.

Let’s hope our girls can go one better and claim the title in 2016. Below is another video of them performing, and also behind the scenes interviews.
