Two more songs, one more vote. That is what stands between Kelesa Mulcahy and winning The Voice of Ireland.
From the blind auditions through the song battles and two live heats in which she won the support of the Irish public, Kelesa now has just two songs to earn those votes again, and lift the Voice of Ireland crown.
And we now know what those songs will be.
Hoping to blow the roof off the Helix, Kelesa will be performing her favourite song of the competition “Sax” by Fleur East and then “Downtown” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as her second track.
Speaking to the Sligo Weekender from the rehearsal room in Dublin, the Cartron native admitted her success to date has still not sunk in.
“I am still in shock. It has just been snowballing over the last few weeks. After the quarter finals I had two weeks so you could take a breath but since then it has been every week. I have been in Dublin for the last three weeks doing things for the Voice,” she said.
“I am kind of in my own bubble up here [in Dublin]. It is still hard to gauge it and get it to fully sink in.”
