Donncha’s TWO TALENTED is a new family entertainment show hosted by rugby legend Donncha O’Callaghan. Showcasing junior talent with the best of Irish 5 to 9 year olds singing and dancing in every show, Donncha’s Two Talented brings another layer of drama and cuteness as every star child must coax a parent or close adult to duet with them on the show. The kids mentor their chosen adult to a point where they’re ready to perform with them on national tv – yikes.
We’ll see the best young performers in the country take to the stage in powerful solo performances and then meet their students: mums, dads, grans & grandads, aunties and uncles who have agreed to face their fears and take to the stage with them.
There’s no competition, no judging, no prize – just pure, honest performance from a young star and their chosen adult.
Whether dancing the tango, singing Beyoncé or playing the spoons these youngsters have their work cut out for them. The roles are reversed and the kids become teachers, ready to show the adults how it’s done. With limited time and a mountain to climb before they hit the big stage, the pressure is on to get the adults stage-ready.
The show has a lovely balance of confident young solo performances and tentative duets with parents and loved ones who will do just about anything for the kids.
Will dad lose his nerve? Will gran’s ‘Piqué Turn’ turn her into a Black Swan? Or will everyone breathe a sigh of relief? Dad dancing, tuning groans, cute harmonies and perfect pitch – It’ll all be there in Donncha’s Two Talented.
