watch now at

Róisín Mullins and eighteen professional Irish dancers from the Raven Irish dance troupe headed to Fountain Studios in London to perform live on X Factor on Saturday Night. The girls flanked judge Louis Walsh, whilst lead dancer Róisín partnered him for a Irish dance meets 'Strictly' routine. Fellow judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osborne watched in amazement as Louis rolled out his steps in front of an elated audience. Róisín joined Louis the previous day to train him for his big performance, with Róisín persuading X-Factor Presenter Dermot O’Leary to duo with her in his place during secret stage rehearsals, watched by X Factor acts 5 After Midnight,  Honey G, Emily Middlemas, Saara Aalto and Matt Terry. Assisting Róisín with her choreography was a world class team led by X-Factor Creative Director Brian Friedman.


Later in the show Róisín returned to present Louis with a surprise life time achievement award for longest serving X-Factor judge in the UK, beating a stunned Simon, with 356 Shows to Simon’s 291. The excitement of Róisín and four of the Raven girls dancing around the judges even got Pussycat Doll and Judge Nicole standing and doing a jig. Róisín even had a dance costume designed and made on the day by X-Factor costume designer Laury Smith, who has designed stage costumes for stars such as Lady Gaga and Britney Spears.


Róisín even took time out from rehearsals to co-choreograph a routine for Presenters Matt Edmondson and Rylan Clark, for The Xtra-Factor, with X-Factor Choreographer James Collins, set to a live performance of song ‘C’est Le Vie’ by Dublin born B*Witched singer Keavy Lynch. A huge congratulations to Louis and thanks to the Raven girls for a great show and a star packed weekend!
