Cork dance troupe RDC have won the inaugural Ireland's Got Talent on TV3, taking home a prize of €50,000 and a starring role in their own television show.

Two other dance acts, Xquisite and FKFT, were the runners-up in Saturday night's feelgood final, which was decided solely by the public vote.

Also competing in the heartwarming show from The Helix in Dublin were dance duo Double Impact, singer Linda McLoughlin, rapper Aaron J Hart and the two wild cards, singer Matt Dodd and dancer Zacc Milne.

Tears of joy

The 31-strong RDC vowed to throw "a massive party" after their win.

RDC had performed third on the night, dancing to a mix of tracks including Michael and Janet Jackson hits and New Order's Blue Monday.

After their performance, judge Louis Walsh said: "You've done your homework, and it paid off. I've got a really good feeling about you tonight."

His comments were echoed on the judging panel by Jason Byrne, who said RDC would be "hard to beat" and "definitely the act to watch".

RDC now have a "massive party" to plan

"You're so in sync it's like you came out of the same womb!" enthused judge Denise Van Outen, with fellow judge Michelle Visage saying: "I love what you do."
