The Battle stage of “The Voice of Ireland” is over so here’s a recap of #TeamDolores performances!
The 1st battle was Nella Dwyer Vs. John Hogan Jr. performing “Losing My Religion” by R.E.M.
Dolores chose John thanks to his quirky and passionate performance. Unfortunately no other coaches “stole” Nella in spite of her beautiful interpretation and unusual tone.

The 2nd battle was a three way battle between Peter Whitford, Anna O’ Hanlon and Thomas Kinney singing “Breakeven” by The Script. This was a very awkward and strange performance (to say the least) as other coaches noted, and Dolores chose Peter even though he had a laryngitis. Anyway, kudos to Anna and Thomas for trying their best singing this quite difficult song!

Then a steal happened…
Impressed by her performance of Foo Fighters’ “My Hero”, Dolores stole Emma Walsh from Team Bressie.

The 3rd battle was Sean Sunderland Vs. Mariah Butler performing “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day. It was a very powerful and well-rehearsed performance. After some consideration, Dolores decided to go with Mariah who has a really powerful and beautiful voice.

The 4th battle was Michelle Revins Vs. Jamie Stanton performing Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” and… there was standing ovation at the end! Even though both guys performed so well and passionate, Dolores decided to take Michelle because she was the only person to make her cry during her first performance at the Blind Auditions. But good things happened to Jamie, too: he was stolen by Bressie!

The last and 5th battle featured Kellie Lewis Vs. Pauric McLoughlin performing “True Colours” by Cyndi Lauper. Other coaches noted that the song choice was more suitable for the vocals of Kellie thus making Pauric a little bit uncomfortable singing this “girlish” song. Dolores chose Kellie, but Pauric – thanks to his impressive performance at the Blind Auditions! – was stolen by Kian.
