Watch: 'Man, she feels like a woman!' - Senator Michelle Mulherin whips off shirt in full-on performance at lip-sync battle Newsdesk Newsdesk

FORMER Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin is proving to be an internet sensation as footage of a somewhat-risque performance goes viral.

The Mayo Senator won the Strictly Lip Sync contest held by Ballina Rugby Club at the Grand National Hotel last weekend, beating out 15 other acts including Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary.

She performed Shania Twain's hit 'Man, I Feel Like a Woman'. And, given it was a lip sync competition, Ms Mulherin's amateur dramatics, dancing and full-on performance was the source of her win, which received a standing ovation.

The Senator wore thigh high boots, a short skirt and a white shirt over a black bustier in a nod to Ms Twain, and even whipped off the shirt towards the end.

"It was for a great cause and raised a lot of money," she told

"My two electric guitar cool dudes are brothers Jason and Luke Sweeney."
