RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage was announced as one of the judges for the new series, Ireland’s Got Talent, this last summer as the latest incarnation of the worldwide competition series. It’s set to premiere in 2018, but pics of the judges were just posted by none other than MV.
Our gal joins Denise Van Outen, Louis Walsh and Jason Byrne behind the judges table as they discover and critique Ireland’s most talented performers and singers. Visage said at TV3’s season launch.
“My favourite thing in the world are camp acts; the weirder they are, the better for me. Of course I love the kids, of course I love the animals – but I like when people think outside the box and just go for it, go crazy. That’s the stuff I love to see.”
Visage told the Irish Mirror how excited she was to relocate to Ireland, which she calls her “second home.”
“I love Ireland. Clearly I’m from here – you look at me and I’ve Irish blood. I try to live as locals do when I work in a country. I was on RTE [Radio and Television of Ireland] with Dusty Rhodes years ago but I don’t think anyone here remembers. So I did a lot of sightseeing when I came over, I’m talking in the 90s.”
But she’s NOT doing it for the money, honey…
“I love Ireland and if I can help someone achieve their dream, that to me is worth more than money… They are paying me in potatoes. But I get to work with Louis Walsh, who is a really good friend.”
So, she on Ireland’s Got Talent, All Stars Season 3 and Drag Race Season 10? Oh, don’t forget What’s The Tee? podcast, plus, she tours with queens. She’s almost as busty, uhhh, BUSY as Mama Ru.
See, she loves the kids, and they LOVE her back.
