The popular country ‘n western talent show returns for another 15 week series, featuring nine of Ireland’s best performers as they each mentor a new contestant in a quest to win the Glór Tíre title. Each contestant will perform a duet and solo with their mentor within their concert programme and will also perform with the house band during the introduction, recap and elimination programmes.
The very talented presenter Aoife Ní Thuairisg fronts the show with the judging panel, broadcaster John Creedon, singer-songwriter Caitríona Ní Shúilleabháin and another great singer-songwriter and former Eurovision winner Charlie McGettigan.
Following an introduction programme, nine concert programmes are recorded ‘as live’, followed by a review edition and then three elimination programmes where we will lose two contestants per week. This all leads to the grand final which will feature three finalists.
The judging panel can save one of the three contestants with the lowest vote but the public vote is hugely important too.
