ON-STAGE PRESENCE: Minyip’s Monique Le Bas performs in last night’s semi-final of Australia’s Got Talent on Channel Seven.MINYIP soprano Monique Le Bas received high praise from all three judges in her semi-final performance on talent show Australia’s Got Talent last night.
Le Bas auditioned for the Channel Seven show in April as an opera singer.
Her big voice and even bigger personality drew praise from the judges Dannii Minogue and Brian McFadden and secured her a spot in the semi-finals.
Le Bas recorded the semi-final effort on Sunday and it aired last night.
She said her performance went much more smoothly than her original.
“I did a better job this time,” she said.
“I had everyone giggling. That’s a good thing.”
The excitable Le Bas giggled and snorted her way through her audition, which McFadden noted, calling her ‘giddy and hyper’.
She said she had as much fun the second time around.
“It went so quickly,” she said. “I wore a very special gown in a colour I don’t normally wear.”
Le Bas said the judges, this time including Kyle Sandilands, reacted positively to her performance.
McFadden congratulated her on her efforts.
“The acting was brilliant, the vocal was exceptional, the delivery,” he said.
“It was just 100 per cent a perfect performance.”
Le Bas said Minogue was her favourite judge. She said she would love to catch up with Minogue socially.
“That’d be lovely, that would be really nice. We’ll talk shoes,” she said.
Le Bas said she was also having fun getting to know her fellow contestants.
“I shared a dressing room with a person named Andy and I’ve been with the comedic twins and there have been a couple of little kids there,” she said.
“Everyone was so nice. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect.”
Le Bas could not predict which contestants could make the finals.
“I just love them all,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to be the judges.”
Le Bas said after tonight’s show people could vote her through to the finals.
She said she expected to go well.
“I always like to be positive about everything in life,” she said.
“People should vote for me because I’m a local girl putting Minyip back on the map.
“My aim is to be performing, performing, performing.
“It’s all been super awesome.”
People can vote for Le Bas by calling 1902 55 75 03 or texting ‘MONIQUE’ to 1977 88 88 before noon tomorrow.
