Applications to audition for ‘The Voice of Ireland’ are now open!

| September 2, 2011 | Comments (176)


The Voice of Ireland is the ultimate talent show, seeking only people with true vocal talent. This is the show that starts where other talent searches end! Looks, age and appearance don’t matter, as the blind auditions ensure that the voice alone secures a place in the next round.

The Voice of Ireland consists of three phases: a blind audition, a singing battle and the live performance shows.

Four coaches, all established successful singers, will compete with each other to choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. During these auditions the mentors will be seated with their backs to the singers, and their decisions are based solely on voice. If a coach is impressed by the voice, they push the ‘I Want You’ button and their chair turns to face the singer. If more than one coach pushes the button, the power shifts to the singer and they get to decide which coach they want to work with.

Once each coach has their team in place, the battle is on! Each team of singers will be mentored and developed by their coach.

Hosted by Kathryn Thomas and Eoghan McDermott, The Voice of Ireland will be offering a recording contract with Universal Music to the winning vocalist.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, then apply now by visiting

The closing date for applications is Monday the 19th of September, 2011 at 6pm.

I also want so much for these talented adults to get up and enjoy themselves + end of nite all on stage. I would really appreciate if u Catherine or a talent scout would contact me about this Showcase. mob 0872800779 – 0r Cant you please reply to this email, i very much appreciate u taking the time to read it. ages range from 14 – 22 – all brillant performers who really want to get into this buisness – im just making it possible for them. thank you for your time.
