People were absolutely raging that Jason Byrne accidentally hit the golden buzzer on last night's Ireland's Got Talent

It’s the first time the golden buzzer has ever been pressed by accident in the history of the series.

LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE of Ireland’s Got Talent had a pretty decent selection of contestants.

There was a male voice chamber choir serenading Sinn Féin’s new leader…

Michelle, Denise and Louis loved these guys, but they didn’t manage to impress Jason Byrne.

Then there was another large group of guys from Trinity College’s Trinitones performing a medley.

Jason Byrne liked this group a bit more.

Shame he couldn’t give them the golden buzzer.

The Sinn Féin theme continued, with this drag queen named Martin McGuiness.

This is where everything went wrong. Jason, in an attempt to wind up the other judges, refused to hit the red button, long after they all had done so. Denise decided to step in, and while protecting his red button, Jason accidentally stood on the golden buzzer, sending this performer straight to the semi-finals.

Jason insisted the whole thing was an accident…

Louis Walsh did not go easy on Martin McGuinness after that performance.

“That was such a waste of a golden buzzer. You cannot sing. Lucy, he has no vocal ability. The singing was so bad. If Cilla Black heard that version, I mean, she’s spinning in the grave.”
