Local family cheering on Ally
in big telly talent contest
Nemeis, featuring Ally in the front.
THE Irwin family in Lisburn will be glued to
their televisions on Friday night when Ally Irwin performs in
the live semi-final of ITV's Britain's Got Talent.
Ally, from Milton Keynes, is performing with
street dance crew 'Nemesis' and her grandmother, Mrs Elizabeth
Irwin, her uncle Clive, aunt Heather and cousins Matthew and
Andrew, who all live in Lisburn, are asking local people to show
their support and get dialling to make sure Ally and the rest of
Nemesis make it through to the show's final on Saturday night.
If Nemesis get through they could be in with
a chance of winning a performance slot at the Royal Variety Show
and showing Prince Charles just what they can do.
"Nemesis have been together for less than one
year, but have come through from the many thousands of auditions
to the last 40 acts" said Clive.
"Ally is one of five members of the Nemesis
crew, street dancers who became the UK 2007 Hip Hop champions.
They comprise Ally and Sam, the girls, and Ishe, Emmanuel and T,
"They can't afford the cost of rehearsing in
dance studios so they practice at the Milton Keynes Bus Station
which has full-length reflective glass windows. The locals watch
them in all weathers doing their stuff on the pavement. They
represent what is good and great in the youth of today. They're
a role model for those young people who don't do drugs, drink
alcohol or vandalise property.
"Ally is 18 and is sitting her A-levels this
month in Maths, Physics and Politics though her first love is
art, graphics and design. She played in the Youth Soccer World
Cup in Sweden. She has lived in Switzerland and France and
speaks French. She loves her sister called Gayle who's off to
Russia in September. She's love to make a career of dancing,
modelling and singing, so vote for Nemesis.
"Ishe wants to be a professional
choreographer, T a music producer, Emmanuel an architect and Sam
a song and dance performer. She's busy also qualifying for X
Factor," added Clive.
Show Ally and Nemesis your support when she
hits our screens on Friday evening at 9pm.
