Love Island’s Best Talent Show Performances Of All Time, Ranked

To this day, nothing has impressed me more than the dance of Siânnise and Luke T

Last night was the return of the Love Island talent show challenge. All the islanders sat around the fire pit and watched as they put on an evening of performances, meant to show off their hidden talents in all their glory. However, the standard of talent on display was, shall we say, worse.

I hope for the rest of my life I will never be subjected to Jake Cornish chanting again, Toby and Aaron won’t be called up to the England team anytime soon and Faye’s comedy? Was it what it was supposed to be or?

So, to give us the talent we truly deserve, here’s a look at some of the best talent show performances there’s ever been on Love Island — because some of the former islanders were actually really, really impressive.

9. Millie Yard, 2021

Millie happens to be here for the sheer value of cuteness. The way Liam looked at her and the awkward silence as she literally mesmerized all his fellow islanders? It was fascinating.

8. Priscille Anyabu, 2020

Sometimes I think back to Love Island’s 2020 winter series and realize that the only half-decent part was the talent show. The producers managed to recruit quite talented candidates. Priscilla did some very, very impressive moves and picked a banger of a song to dance to. It was a show, that’s for sure.

7. Camilla Thurlow, 2017

In 2017, Camilla gave a speech on gun violence and war around the world. Islanders are generally not allowed to talk about the outside world, so seeing a candidate talk about something they are truly passionate about was hugely moving and inspiring. Amber said she was blown away by the performance and Camilla’s partner Jamie couldn’t take his eyes off her.

6. Kady McDermott, 2016

Kady McDermott’s 2016 talent show performance was one of Love Island’s healthiest moments. Who knew the flaming bomb was a secret tap dancer?

5. Paige Turley, 2020

Paige is a professional singer, so the talent show should have been her moment — and you have to hand it to her, it really was. She has lungs. She also gets extra points for Finn dancing with his little shower cap in the crowd, which really added to the vibe.

4. Chris, Kem and Marcel, 2017

You know what’s coming here. Yes, Chris and Kem rapped and Marcel played keyboards for them. It was the start of something beautiful and they actually released Little Bit Leave It after the show.

3. Cara De La Hoyde, 2016

The 2016 talent show really gave it away. And is there more impressive and mind-blowing talent than blowing fire? Cara literally arrived and BLOWED the FIRE for the other islanders, while wearing a string bikini. The 2021 candidates could never. It was sexy. That was all.

2. Sophie Gradon, 2016

Love Island's Best Talent Show Performances and Moments Ever

by TVI

In 2016, the climax of the talent show saw a moving speech from the late Sophie Gradon. The episode came after islander Zara Holland left the villa and was stripped of her Miss GB crown for having sex on TV. In Sophie’s speech, she proclaimed that guess what?! Women also like to make love!

She said, “Life shouldn’t be about judging each other. For example, judging a young woman for fun. A young woman who has done no harm to anyone, but a woman who has faced a torrent of critical and narrow-minded opinions since leaving Love Island. As a former Miss Newcastle and Miss GB, I can say it’s time people let go of their old-fashioned way of thinking and accept the simple fact that women like to have sex.

As a result of her incredible act, Sophie was crowned Miss Love Island 2016 by her fellow islanders.

1. Siânnise and Luke T, 2021

And here we are, with Love Island’s best talent show performance ever. We are not worthy of the chemistry, choreography and sheer style that oozed out of Siânnise and Luke T when they gave this performance. Their synchronization was worthy of awards. I get goosebumps every time.

Love Island 2021 continues on ITV2 at 9pm tonight. For all the latest Love Island news and gossip and for the best memes and quizzes, like The Holy Church of Love Island on Facebook.
