Kilkenny’s John Nolan and celebrity dance partner Mairéad wow judges again
PRESENTER Mairéad Ronan said she was relieved to be back with her Kilkenny partner John Nolan as the couple impressed the judges on Dancing With The Stars last night.
Reunited after switch-up week, John and Mairéad danced a quickstep to Nothing Breaks like a Heart by Mark Ronson featuring Miley Cyrus.
The couple’s performance earned high praise from the judges, who scored them a total of 24 points, the joint third highest of the night.
Mairéad afterwards said she was glad to be back together with the Kilkenny superhoofer: “I am, I missed him.”
Judge Darren said: “There was so much to love… great creativity… now I want you to focus on your upper body… very occasionally you become a bit of a passenger in hold.”
Judge Loraine added: “I thought it was wonderful. Really very good… I loved it, it was great flight, I wanted more and more… the quality was superb.”
Demi Issac Oviawe and Kai Widdrington became the latest contestants to be voted off Dancing with the Stars and will miss out on next week’s show special with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
The Young Offenders star fell afoul of the dreaded dance-off and lost out to comedian Fred Cooke, who was unanimously chosen by the judges to stay in the competition.
