Laura May Lenehan has reached the semi finals of The Voice of Ireland.

The 21-year-old singer from Grange is the first Sligo person to get this far in the competition.

She told The Sligo Champion: "I cannot put it into words. I cannot thank people enough for voting for me.

"My song was so different to what I usually sing, as it was out of my comfort zone.

"I thought it was good to do something different."

Her song, Addicted to You by Avicii, gave her a total of 22 points from the judges.

"Bressie gave me seven points, both him and Dolores said that they liked the start of it, while Kian said that he enjoyed it.

"Jamelia told me she thought that I should have got more points from them.

"We also did a group performance with Jamelia which was really fun.

"There were loads of children on stage, it was really enjoyable."

There are only six singers remaining in the RTE contest.

"I am the only one from Jamelia's team still in the competition.

"It is brilliant, I am so, so happy to get to this stage."

The semi finals take place on Sunday evening and four will get through to the final showdown, the following weekend.

Laura May was already in the middle of lengthy rehearsals yesterday, Monday.

"We are all back rehearsing today. I cannot put into words what it means to be here."
