PREVIOUS:  Won Irish talent show Nollaig No.1 under the name Mary Lee

From Mary’s first audition it was quite obvious that she was going to be through to the live finals.  We were sold the ‘Susan Boyle’ story, in that we were all supposed to be shocked by the fact that a normal looking woman who works on a checkout could actually sing quite well, and she’s been one of the acts championed by the press.  However, one thing that’s not really been mentioned on the show is that Mary is more than capable of taking part in a show like this, since she’s actually already won a TV talent show in her native Ireland…
