VIRGIN Media viewers predicted Shego is the “winner” of this year’s The Big Deal.
The new talent show hit screens earlier this month with a star jury of Jedward, Deirdre O’Kane, Boy George, Lyra and Aston Merrygold.
Tonight fans saw an incredible pole dance number, energetic drag queen, singers and dancers.
Drag queen Angelica Starr blew the judges away with their choreography and went straight to the semi-finals.
Lyra said of Angelica, “You made me smile and you have entertained us all and we need it right now.”
Angelica said after the victory: “In the semi-finals, you can expect all the glitz and glamor of a drag queen with tenfold choreography.”
He is accompanied by singers Cillian from Cork and Megan Burke from Dublin who impressed with his version of an air by Amy Winehouse.
Jedward said of Megan: “This performance was amazing.”
The group got a vote from all the judges to advance to the semi-finals.
Home viewers agreed with the judges and called the team the winners.
Lyra added, “I know you can soar like a bird.”
But it was the Shego dance team that wowed judges and viewers with their important message of inclusion for the LGBTQ community.
Aston said: “Honestly it was phenomenal.”
Lyra added, “Your message is special, you are special. It was mind blowing.”
Deirdre congratulated them by saying: “You are talented and you have filled me with joy.”
Boy George said: “I thought you were nervous and when you started dancing I was like, ‘Who are these people?'”
One person said, “Come on # shego… loved it! Super choreo. This is how it’s done.
“Potential winners right there. Well done #TheBigDeal.”
Someone else tweeted: “Okay, #Shego is the best actor of it all so far #TheBigDeal.”
