Orla McDermott sings her way to TG4 Eurovision final spot

It's not over yet for 12 year old Orla McDermott as she has qualified for the final three in her battle to represent Ireland at Junior Eurovision in November in Poland .

On Sunday night on TG4, Orla gave an amazing rendition of James Baes 'Hold back the River' as Gaeilge.

Savannah Phoenix Monroe and Anna Kearney were both chosen to go straight through to the final with Orla chosen to go through to the sing off against Alison Mc Grath..

The 1st vote from former Eurovision winner Niamh Kavanagh went to Orla with Chris Greenes vote going to Alison . So it was down to Grainne Bleasdale... After some deliberation Grainne gave Drogheda girl Orla her vote meaning Orla's dream is still in sight.

Tune in on Sunday 6th October TG 4 8.30pm to see Orla's final decider.
