Dublin: 8 °C Friday 2 December, 2022

These three Dublin kids were brought up to dance on stage with Justin Bieber in the RDS last night

Backing dancers for the song Children, appropriately enough.

AFTER THE BUZZ of him stopping off in Maynooth for nachos and playing basketball in Busy Park, you’d forget that Justin Bieber was actually in Ireland to play a gig.

And last night in the RDS, Bieber delivered.

Belting out every one of his bangers for the crowd

But for three young dancers from Dublin in the crowd, they couldn’t just enjoy the show – they had to prepare.

10-year-old Abi Doolan and 12-year-olds Shane Bosson and Leah McNamara from Swag Dance Studio in Swords had been chosen among a select crop of young Irish dancers to join Bieber on stage.

And when they got up there, they nailed it

What a night for the three of them

Along with the other young Irish dancers – including eight-year-old Monaghan girl Eva McMahon - they took their chance on the biggest stage they’ve been on in their young lives.

They’d been pre-selected from thousands of applications, and Eva’s dance teacher Gavin Quigley from Born 2 Perform Dance School told DailyEdge.ie what an honour it was for Eva:

What’s even more exciting about this is that her older brother Conall was selected by the same process to dance with Justin Bieber just last November! On both occasions, thousands of children auditioned with only four being selected for this incredible opportunity.

What are the chances.

For all the kids brought up on stage, Justin asked them their name after their performance and introduced them to the crowd

An experience they will probably never forget

Even the crowd were loving it when the local kids came out

A nice touch <3
