Lorain native Jaclyn Bradley Palmer to appear on 'Ireland's Got Talent'


    Lorain native Jaclyn Bradley Palmer sings on "The Voice" in Holland in 2017. Palmer will appear on another European television show, "Ireland's Got Talent."



Lorain native Jaclyn Bradley Palmer will appear on the TV show “Ireland’s Got Talent” on Saturday.

The appearance marks the latest in a number of international performances for the Palmer, including stints on “The Voice of Holland,” “The Rachel Zoe Project,” “Breaking Bonaduce,” “Date my Mom” and “Househunters International.”

This is the second season of “Ireland’s Got Talent,” which is based on the international “Got Talent” franchise. During the show participants pitch their talents — which range from singing and musical performances to magic shows and dance routines — to a panel of four judges who vote either to advance the contestant or boot them from the show. Winners receive $50,000 and a prime-time spot on “Ireland’s Got Talent’s” parent company Virgin Media.

“As a little girl, I would watch with wonder shows like ‘Star Search’ as well as the talent portion of Miss America — and I loved every minute of it,” Palmer said. “It is exciting when people come together to share music, dance, comedy and artfulness, and I am thrilled to be participating in such a show now in Ireland.”

Palmer is the daughter of Lorain lawyer Jack Bradley. She graduated from Indiana University’s music program with a degree in vocal performance and a concentration in classical opera. She works as a music therapist in Dublin, Ireland.

Though Palmer can’t reveal her song choice until after the audition airs, she believes her choice played to her strengths and she felt confident about her performance.

“In my life there are so many different genres of music and I think the song I chose showcases my variety of musical strengths and interests,” she said.

The show will air 3:30 p.m. Saturday on Virgin Media Television One. International audiences can watch online or on Palmer’s social media accounts.
