The amazing Brendan McCahey won The Voice of Ireland tonight!

The fabulous Brendan McCahey tonight scooped the title of The Voice of Ireland winner. McCahey, who is living in Cavan, sang  ‘Can’t Judge A Book’ by The Strypes and did a duet with the lovely Jerry Fish in the final to secure his win.

The 39-year-old, who was part of Team Bressie, was originally turned down by producers of the show this year but gained one of the coveted 2FM wildcards to get to the blind auditions stage of the competition where his savvy mentor was the only one to turn around and he then went on to receive two tens, the only two tens of the series, for his semi-final performance of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me.

Mentor Bressie said proudly Brendan tonight,

“The only thing Brendan hasn’t done is gangster rap. You are ready to record an album, you are that good.”

Dolores O’ Riordan’s act Kellie Lewis came second, Jamelia’s act Laura May Lenehan finished third and Bressie’s other finalist Jaime Stanton finished 4th.

Congrats Brendan and Bressie! Very well-deserved guys! 🙂

The Voice of Ireland live shows got off to an amazing start last night on RTE with three acts from each team going up against each other. On Team Kian there was Jay Boland, Pauric McLoughlin and Laura O’Connor with Pauric losing out while on Team Dolores there was Kellie Lewis, John Hogan Junior and Michelle Revins with John losing out.

On Team Jamelia there was Laura May Lenehan, Gavin Murray and Daisy Valenzuela with Daisy losing out.

While on Team Bressie there was Brendan McCahey, Sarah Sylvia and Kedar Friis Lawerence with Kedar losing out.

I thought Sarah was the best on it but I also felt that Brendan, Kedar, Pauric, Gavin, Kellie, John and Michelle were very good. Well done to everyone and hard luck to those who went out.

Who are you for in The Voice of Ireland this year?
