It's Joe's second attempt to advance in the competition after he was kicked off during Bootcamp in 2013.

Tonight's episode sees the Girls category subjected to the trauma of the Six Chair Challenge and Joe (27) will be seen performing his last next week with the Overs.

Joe's days were numbered as a member of Simon Cowell's category as the music mogul was not a fan of the Athlone singer despite the fact he aced all of his auditions.

Last week Cowell said, "Is there any way, like that movie The Fly, you can put that voice into a another contestant?".

However, Joe will undoubtedly be chuffed with his sister Donna's recent success in LA.

Donna (31) won You're A Star alongside Joe and they represented Ireland in the Eurovision and she has since moved to LA to pursue a solo career.

This week she announced that a song in which she featured is on the soundtrack for a new movie, directed by and starring Eric Roberts.

"Super excited about singing on a track in this movie," she tweeted, "It has just been released in America and will be hitting Netflix soon also."

Earlier this year Donna was seen performing for Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera on The Voice US.
