    Eh, thanks Bressie?

    Guess Bressie doesn't feel too bad now :pac:

    Ah I think Keith has something going for him. He's charismatic on stage and if he works on his diction he could be a really good performer. As I said in an earlier post, I could see him on the West End.

    The people of Ireland are tone deaf and stone deaf.
    I'm off out the window now.


    You're taking this steaming dump of RTE **** very serious!

    Can we all agree, if this show comes back we won't watch it next year?
    Not a chance :p

    It's sooooooooooooooooo bad, it's good :D

    Keith got the Bieber age vote, that's just what I think. (Clue: the amount of times Kathryn asked before voting: "Ask the person who pays the phone bill before you phone in" or words to that effect.) The next question is will he do well? I hope he does, the music business is a very tough one.

    I love Kelly and her voice - so poignant but I think Shane from Donegal was outstanding tonight.

    Who won "The Voice" last year? I could google it but then again what's the point? If the name doesn't stick in your brain, there's no point really.

    Pat Byrne. The ginger lad with the guitar.

    IMO, the outstanding contestant last year was Conor Quinn, but he didn't even get to the final!

    Lighten up dude! But if you want to get pedantic - the mentor has to do their selection first. And btw, not every person who enters a singing compo can sing - memories of Brendan Kilkenny anyone?!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,038 ✭✭✭ Go Harvey Go


    I guess being 1-3 with the bookies doesn't always mean you'll win.

    But, to play devil's advocate here, I'm not at all surprised at this result... and I wouldn't have been at all surprised either if Shane had won.

    I'm back. I had a soft landing. I landed on top of Jim Power who was passing underneath.

    Still now, that was a farce. The Mongan girl was by far the best singer but her followers obviously had no credit to phone in.

    'Their' acts, not 'there' acts... so the songs are picked by 'the voice'!!! or is that, The Voice - as in, the programme title. How would that work?

    Tedious......not getting into this now. :P

    Just thinking, you know the way Traveller women are expected to be housewives after they get married & have kids, and working is frowned upon (well from what I've learned from Big Fat Gypsy Wedding!)... it would be a real shame if Kelly gave up the singing....

    Well considering she entered the show after she got married and didn't drop out when she found out she was pregnant (if she didn't already know when she auditioned) I doubt that will happen.

    I hope she makes a go of it, maybe it's better she didn't win so she can have a few months off with her baby.

    fair city on now, not getting any better for rte watchers tonight now is it...

    Now I have to admit I am a sad, sad TV viewer and RTE have lost me totally during the week. I used to watch the Today Show, well I use the verb 'watched' in a loose way - basically it was on in the background while I was ironing etc....but you get the idea.

    Now they have reruns of something they basically broadcast 2 weeks before. Tragically I have had to turn to watching Jeremy Kyle (how he finds these people, god only knows, but they all have very bad teeth, with other personal issues) or TV3 and Judge Judy.

    So on an average week it's TV 3, "Jude Judy" by 2 followed by "Come Dine With Me - Ireland". Then it's "The One Show" on BBC then "Eastenders".
    When you are on a roll why waste the effort on pressing the button on the remote.

    I watch "Fair City" for the story lines:D and the amazing acting.;) Judith sleeps with her brother-in-law, hmmm.....sound like a Jeremy Kyle show?

    Ros na Rún on TG4 is quite good, to tell you the truth.:cool:

    Yes I know watching all these soaps is pretty sad - but I have no other option since the government has cut my salary - have to stay in. The lives of people in soaps are worse than mine, so I feel a little smug watching them.

    Just joking - a little!:)

    Cheesiest moment on Irish TV ever??

    Edit: Just realised I'm watching on +1 :o

    Thinking back, it was pretty bad the way Kelly was just ushered off the stage after Keith won, not even a round of applause or anything.

    I thought the result was unbelievable. That he won was unbelievable. That Kelly lost was unbelievable. Just unbelievable really. Unbelievable.

    Well, it can't be denied that it's de rigueur for at least one bad act to go a long way on a cheesy, outright downmarket phone-and-vote talent show.

    *wags finger also at X Factor UK and the All-Ireland Talent Show, while nodding appreciatively at more upmarket shows like the ones on TG4 and, of course, The Voice UK*

    And such is the cheesiness and outright downmarketness of this show - no matter what Jamelia did - that it was no surprise at all to see two bad acts make the final.

    And even when Kelly was odds-on with the bookmakers, the possibility of Keith or Shane winning was never too remote...

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;)

    Yeah, The last week of 2012 was Pat Byrne, Richie Hayes, Vanessa Whelan and Jim Devine.

    They all released songs on Itunes which counted towards the final scores.

    More about that 'unforgettable' 2012 final here

    http://www.hotpress.com/archive/8881598.html
    Pat Byrne was the favourite going into the final. His single 'What A Wonderful World' hit the Irish singles charts at No.3 this week – suggesting a groundswell of support that would be hard for the other finalists to match. Next in line in chart terms was Richie Hayes, whose single 'One Voice' was at No.23 – a gap in instant popularity that seemed too big to bridge on the night. And so it proved.
