Lisa's TV talent show boost
Ask Lisa McHugh and she'll tell you about the benefits of performing on a TV talent show.
Back in 2009, the nation first set eyes on the young Glasgow woman of Irish descent when she put herself forward as a contestant on TG4's Glór Tire.
Lisa, whose mum is from Falcarragh, Co Donegal, and dad a native of Castlederg, Co Tyrone, was mentored on the show by country star, Robert Mizzell.
Lisa reached the final of that year's contest and moved to Letterkenny to work full-time as a country singer.
She is now one of Ireland's top female country stars.
"You couldn't buy the kind of publicity I got out of that show," Lisa says.
Glór Tire is now looking for new contestants for its next series. To apply, simply email a video of yourself performing to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details. The deadline is September 6.
