Roisin Geraghty-McDonagh wowed judges on Saturday’s episode of BBC One show The Voice.

The 25-year-old mum from Ovenden performed Dolly Parton’s 1971 hit “Coat of Many Colours” in the final blind audition round.

As talented Roisin sung her final note, music legend Tom Jones turned his chair around to secure her place in the next stage of the competition.

He told Roisin: “I like country music and I think you delivered it really, really well.

“I don’t have a country singer on my time, but I do now.”

Judge Will.i.am added: “You’re very brave coming on here singing country music when most people are singing pop music and ballads.”

Folllowing her performance, Roisin said: “It feels great to have got through to the next round, everyone has been congratulating me - even people who I don’t know.

“Its been a brilliant response.”

Roisin, now part of “Team Tom” will battle it out in a competitive duel against other acts in the team - immediately after the performance the coach must choose the act to take through to the next stage.

Tune in to BBC One at 7:15pm on Saturday to see how Roisin gets on.
