Jaysis is this not a show for amateurs??????? That's some cv she's got there.
You have to laugh really when she didn't get picked.

Although I thought she had an English accent but according to that they moved to Ireland when she was 3. She hardly kept the accent since then. Guess she could have picked it up from the parents (presuming they are English originally).

Compared to some of the ones that did? She still sounded better than most of those who did go through. Even to my amateur ears.

It's all subjective, ultimately.

But if you sing with very little accompaniment you need to be really good to make it sound good.

And she wasn't good enough, on the day.

Its a fix

Guys and girls its all a fix! I was in the audience and seen some great singers sent home! I have a masters degree in Music and know what Im talking about. I was at the last show and three great singers were sent home and told no good cause the coaches had no votes left!

Its a farce a fix and a con job! I hope the last 5 singers get together and legal proceedings againsts the production company and RTE! Its yet to be seen if they broadcast these people.

She played at Gay Pride in Dublin two years ago and had an Irish accent, so she must have picked the English accent back up in the last two years. At the gig, she kept shouting "Tara Blaise,playing for the gays!" which was slightly cringy at the time...

1. I hate that ad. The cheek of the husband mocking what the wife chooses to spend her money on
2. Her hair is brown and not blonde anyway
3. She looks a lot older and bedraggled in the ad then see did on the show

Wikipedia: "John Hughes offered her an album deal on his own Spokes label, and sent her to Los Angeles to work with Corrs producer Olle Romo, resulting in her debut album Dancing On Tables Barefoot."
That's John Hughes, manager of The Corrs...

is that not part of the jeopardy for the coaches? they have to pick 12, surely they have to run out sometime.

Not great. Interesting concept though, with the chairs turned around. I am sorry, but Kian Egan is a glorified Karaoke singer, so his opinion isn't worth much. All he knows for the last 10 years or so is the world of bland pop and doing what Louis told him to do.

Bressie??? Who the f**k is Bressie??? He was in a band that tanked. Then what? A solo "career" that has yet to take off?? How come, on these shows, every singer comes on and does stunt vocals? Why oh why can't they come on and just sing the bloody song, instead of doing a Mariah Carey on it all the time.....

Yer wan from Black Daisy - things must be bad. She represented Ireland at the Eurovision, did she not? Now she is reduced to a talent show, with Bressie deciding her future!!!
