Things got a little tetchy on The Voice of Ireland last night thanks to sniping between the coaches.

Former Westlife star Kian Egan compared Una Foden's hairstyle to Miss Piggy's.

"I was going more for JLo actually," she replied.

The comments came as the coaches were assessing Emmet Daly's performance (he later made it through to the next round).

Despite the jibes, it was a belter of a show and Georgina Richmond stood out for the coaches with her take on En Vogue's Don't Let Go.

She initially forgot to take a microphone on stage with her and host Kathryn Thomas stepped in to save the day.

Georgina, who yesterday revealed she is battling botched cosmetic surgery behind the scenes, went on to wow the coaches and audience.

"You have an amazing voice," said Kian.  "You are a powerhouse singer and you really stand out.  You would be my choice."

Una agreed with Kian's assessment, "You are a true pro, you carried on and sang like your life depended on it."

Bressie took Georgina through the last of the live knockouts.

Also through to the next stage was Brazilian Matheus Soares who sang Nina Simone's Put a Spell on You.

"That was incredible - and Rachel was the only person who turned for you in the blinds," said Kian.

"Every time we see you, you get better and better, hats off."
