    What a finale! Donegal V Cork, just like an All Ireland final as Shane pointed out. Only without the Hurley’s a-course. We saw contestants take their coaches to their respective home counties and parade them around the town like the Sam Maguire. Bressie was gutted to learn there’s no McDonalds in Castletownroche, so he consoled […]

    It’s the Semi-Finals, just one more to go!

    The semi-finals started in style with the coaches singing and some nifty steps from Prodijig – Riverdance eat your heart out! There was lots of talk of tackle, tweets accusing the coaches of being deaf and Bressie giving out about monitors again. Soon it was time for the inaugural ‘The Voice Has Got Talent’ and […]

    Bressie’s Tackle…

    Can you believe it’s the Quarter Finals already? The show opened with some girl power from Stooshe then saw cosmetic dentistry confessions, arguments over post codes, and talk of arses and orals. Eoghan managed to get #tackleBressie to the top of the Twitter trends. However he failed miserably when it came to actually tackling the […]

    Pimp My Goose

      After opening with a sterling performance from McFly, Live Show 4 saw scandalous accusations from coaches, alarming threats from contestants, copious amounts of kissing, and talk of er, goose-pimps… We learned Bressie doesn’t understand how the show works, Jamelia doesn’t have a problem with accents but does have difficulty getting into her chair and […]

    The week of testing tweets

    The third of the lives already, and this week was full of testing tweets, animal associations and.. well.. arse talk. We learnt there’s not much love for AC/DC in Cork, fans don’t vote for contestants based on their hair (or do they?), and Kian doesn’t like it when folk prance around the stage. Shannon told […]

    Thong Part Deux..

    The second of the lives saw arguments over leather kaks, various references to bodily secretions and yet MORE underpants. A bolshy Jamelia claimed she had no regrets over her scandalous voting tactics the previous week even going so far as to say she’d do it again – put that in your pipe!! Eoghan looked particularly […]

    Live Show One in the can

    The first of the lives and it was all about half naked dancers, visible underwear and a triumphant return for Sharon’s gold pants!   The coaches kicked off the show quite literally with their group rendition of ‘Teenage Kicks”; though it’d be fair to say it’s been more than a few years since any of […]

    Last Chance Saloon for First Ever Sibling Battle

    The last of this year’s Voice of Ireland Battle shows could not have kicked off with a greater pairing. All Jamelia had to do was pitch a sexy snail-lovin’ lass from Nice, France, against an enthusiastic graveyard wanderer from Stepaside, Dublin, for this week’s first head-to-head contest. Alexandra and Sophie borrowed more than just a […]

    Last Minute Mix Ups and Five Minute Hip Swings

    It would seem that Kian Egan’s “big Louis Walsh head” is not going to sway any younger contestants on The Voice of Ireland. That’s according to Dylan, who kicked off this week’s Battles alongside fellow Team Jamelia member Ben. Despite Dylan’s reluctance about Jamelia’s choice of a “whiny” Linkin Park song, Lemar was fairly impressed […]

    High Heels and Low Blows

    “Just out of bed?” joked Bressie, as two sleepy hopefuls shuffled towards rehearsals on this week’s show. Sure enough, it may have been a fairly early rise for The Voice of Ireland Battles brigade, but Andrew and Eoin (along with a packed house at The Helix) were most certainly ready to rock by nightfall. A […]
