A Donegal teenager will be hoping to twist and sway the judges' opinions as she performs on Ireland's Got Talent. 

Talented and ultra-flexible dancer Lia Della Friel, aged 14, will be taking to the stage this Saturday on Ireland’s biggest talent show. The local student is set to perform an amazing acro dance in the form of contortion.

Insiders say her eye-watering moves are really going to catch the judges’ attention, but will Denise Van Outen, Jason Byrne, Michelle Visage and Louis be stunned for the right reason? Viewers will have to tune in and see.

Lia started ballet classes in Buncrana when she was three years old and hasn’t stopped dancing since. She has developed the ability to bend herself in all directions, and loves all types of dance including ballet, modern dance and tap dance.

Her ultimate dream is to perform with the elite acrobatic dance company Cirque du Soliel, so a ‘Yes’ from the judges will be a major step (or bend) in the right direction.

Lia is one of eleven new acts taking to the stage this week, and if she performs well, she will progress to the Live Finals next month.

Tune in to Ireland’s Got Talent this Saturday 10th February at 7.30pm, followed by Ireland’s Got Mór Talent at 8.30pm
