There was disappointment for Roisin Geraghty-McDonagh on 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.

But 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, the episode marked the end of the talented singer’s journey on the BBC One show, but she says she’s going to do whatever she can to make her dream a reality.

Speaking after the show was aired, Roisin said: “I’m disappointed that they didn’t show the full battle, but I’m not going to give up.

“No one has seen my full potential or what I’m capable of with my voice. I don’t regret applying for the show as its given me more self confidence and I want to give it my all now.

“I think The Voice gave me a platform, before I went on the show I didn’t even want to upload videos of me singing on Youtube.

“But its proved to me what I can do - when I was walking off stage after the battle, Tom told me to never give up.

“I’m going to keep on trying and I’ll do whatever it takes to get where I want to be.”

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

When the series hits the Knockout round next week, 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.
