According to the show’s producers: “the Ireland’s Got Talent judges were last night split on who to put through as their Wild Card to Saturday nights Grand – Final.

Initially, they were split four ways with each judge pushing hard for their own choice, eventually after much debate they got it down to two.
As it became apparent that they were deadlocked on the final two they informed TV3 that they were putting two wild cards through.”

Commenting on this surprise turn of events, head judge Louis Walsh said:

It was a miracle we even managed to agree on two as there were points in the discussion that got pretty heated but I’m delighted we have and we’re all delighted Matt Dodd and Zacc will be getting a second shot at the title.
The truth is Ireland simply has too much talent, it’s going to be an absolutely incredible final”.

Drag performer Paul Ryder was tipped to take a wildcard spot, having gotten the backing of Derry Girls actor Nicola Coughlan earlier in the week.
