I'm super busy at the moment but I love it. While I'm on stage with I, Keano I'm also filming Busker Abu on TG4.

We're trying to find the best busker in Ireland and I'm a judge on the show - the acts are just incredible.

The talent is so good that the singers in the semi-final could win another show of its kind outright.

It's so hard to whittle them down because the judges have to choose which acts go through.

It doesn't come down to the public vote which makes it a lot harder for us.

The other judges are Aindrias De Staic, who is a world-famous busker, and Fiachna O Braonain of the Hothouse Flowers and we have great craic together.

The show airs on Sundays at 8.30pm and how it works is that the singers have to impress us but if they fail, the lights will come down on their performance.

To stay in the competition and the battle for the title of Ireland's Top Busker, they need to give a great performance and show us what they can do so that they can survive the 90-second test.
