38-YEAR-OLD Linda McLoughlin made quite a splash on Saturday night's edition of Ireland's Got Talent.
Mother of two young children Linda McLoughlin auditioned for the panel of Louis Walsh, Michelle Visage, Denise Van Outen and Jason Byrne to showcase her extraordinary singing talents.
Before her audition, McLoughlin spoke of her awful nerves at singing in front of the audience, saying she always lacked confidence and self-belief in life.
Little did Linda know that her beautiful rendition of Listen by Beyoncé for the judges and audience would leave viewers at home tearing up at the emotional choice of song.
Cabra-born McLoughlin's astounding performance got such a strong response from the crowd that Denise Van Outen started a standing ovation which the crowd behind followed.
By the end of her performance, the whole auditorium was on their feet for McLoughlin's amazing rendition of the notoriously difficult song Listen.
Her performance had people everywhere gushing over Linda's performance, sharing how astonished they were at her magnificent talent.
