Four lucky contestants inched closer to success on The Voice of Ireland during the last of the live knockouts rounds.

It was a successful night for Dublin performers as Kayleigh Cullinan, Paddy Kennedy and John Bonham all progressed to the next round.

Cork singer John Sheehy also made it through to next week.

The remaining acts will go on to compete in the quarter-final of the show in a bid to be crowned The Voice of Ireland.

It will now come down to the public votes for the first time this season as the singers battle it out for the top honour.

Judges Una Foden, Rachel Stevens, Kian Egan and Bressie each now have only three acts left.

Eight performers saw their hopes of Voice success dashed on the RTE One show.

Glen Hansard's talented niece Amy was one of the singers to face heartbreak when Rachel dropped her from her team.

The young musician sang Jessie J's Price Tag, but the judges felt that she may have been too young to show her full potential.

"You've got the musical gene, you have a very young voice," Una told the 18-year-old.

Amy's older sister Sinead (23) also made it to the live auditions but was dropped from the show last week.

Behind the scenes, Una Foden's daughter Aoife Belle and her new pal Amelie, who is Rachel Stevens's daughter, enjoyed a taste of the limelight on the famous red chairs before the show kicked off.

Team Una: Patrick Donaghue / Niall O’Halloran / John Sheehy

Team Kian: Helena Bradley Bates / Fionn Gardner / John Bonham

Team Rachel: Kieran McKillop / Sarah McTernan / Paddy Kennedy
