A Rathfriland choir absolutely wowed the judges and millions watching on Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night!
St Patrick’s Junior Choir even received a rare standing ovation from the audience and four judges for their performance on the hit TV show.
The 39 children aged aged eight to 12 performed Lily Allen’s cover of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know.
Simon Cowell told them: “Loved it, loved it, loved it.”
And it looks like social media adored them too.
Well done St Patrick’s Junior School choir. You were excellent and great ambassadors for Northern Ireland #BGT
