WESTLIFE star Kian Egan was left red-faced following a spat with Christy Dignam on 'The Voice'. The daughter of the Aslan

frontman, Keira (26), failed to attract any of the four coaches with her performace of En Vogue's What's It Gonna Be?

Kian, a coach on the popular RTE show, criticised her song choice, remarking that her vocalist father could have helped pick a better number.
