Pauric McLoughlin, John Hogan Junior, Daisy Valenzuela and Kedar Friis Lawrence were all sent home by their coaches on The Voice of Ireland last night.

The Live shows returned with a bang - there were some amazing performances from the first 12 acts on the show but it was the end of the road for four of them.

On Team Kian, Jay Boland achieved the highest score and went straight through to the next stage. Kian had to choose between Pauric McLoughlin and Laura O’Connor with Pauric losing out.

Kellie Lewis scored the highest on Team Dolores, which left John and Michelle on the brink of elimination. Based on the night’s performances Dolores decided that she had to save Michelle.

On Team Jamelia, Laura May Lenehan was the top scorer so went through to the next stage. Jamelia then chose to keep Gavin Murray and send Daisy Valenzuela home.

Finally, on Team Bressie. Brendan McCahey came out on top. Of the remaining two, Bressie felt Sarah had the most potential, meaning it was the end for Kedar Friis Lawerence.
