Kelesa Mulcahy has made it to the semi-final of The Voice of Ireland after she gained the largest share of the public vote for Team Kian.
The Sligo native is through to the penultimate round of the competition this week and is delighted with her success so far.
“I am buzzing. Totally buzzing. I couldn’t hear I was through at first because the atmosphere was just electric. I heard Kathryn [Thomas] say my name, but I had to ask Jasmine beside me ‘am I through or am I going home?’” Kelesa said.
Kelesa won the public’s vote to be put into the semi-final this weekend after wowing the audience and the nation with her rendition of the Fleur East song ‘Sax’.
Each week, the Cartron native has looked to vary her song choice and keep viewers guessing as to what song she will sing.
“You have to up your game every week to stay in. I love doing the big performance songs. I love singing and dancing and I just want to give it my all,” Kelesa commented.
Kelesa’s mentor is fellow Sligo native Kian Egan.
