There was disappointment for Roisin Geraghty-McDonagh this evening (Saturday) as her journey on The Voice came to an end.

The 25-year-old mum from Ovenden went head-to-head with Sharon Murphy in the battle round of the competition.

In an impressive rendition of George Ezra’s hit “Blame It on Me”, both acts delivered a powerful performance as they fought to secure their place in the next stage of the competition.

Following the duet, mentor Tom Jones was faced with the difficult decision of choosing the winner of the battle.

And when decision time came, Tom decided to take Sharon through to the next round of the show, leaving Roisin available for a “steal” from the other judges.

But unfortunately for Roisin, tonight’s episode marked the end of the talented singer’s journey on the talent show.

Speaking after the performance, Tom said: “I thought the battle was excellent, but Sharon has something that touches my soul.”

As the series hits the Knockouts, each artist will select a signature song to perform and the coaches must pick three artists from their team of eight singers to take through to the live shows.
