Sarah in tears after stunning performance on The Voice

SHE was known as the bad girl of Girls Aloud, but glamorous singer Sarah Harding is really just a softie at heart.

Irish TV viewers will see the blonde bombshell in a different light this weekend after she is reduced to tears by two Dublin singers on the latest round of the Voice of Ireland.

An emotionally charged performance by the team Bressie pair results in an outpouring of love on the talent show as the usually warring mentors embrace one another after the tear-jerking display.

Despite being consistently criticised for his questionable song choices by the other mentors and the general public, Mullingar stud Bressie finally comes up trumps when he puts Dubliners Heather Stuart and Sarah Sylvia together on stage to perform She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert.

The duo leave the other mentors – Kian Egan, Jamelia and Dolores O'Riordan – gobsmacked with the haunting performance, which results in everyone feeling a little emotional and loved up.

With the highly charged rendition signalling the end of the tense Battle rounds, the coaches decide to release tensions by getting up from their seats to give each other a hug.

But it is not all sweetness and light for Bressie who is forced to choose between the two girls after admitting that himself and Sarah were "shivering" following the performance.


The ex-Blizzards frontman comments on the girls performance saying: "Stunning, stunning song. You did it so much justice; you really did both of us proud, both of us were shivering. It was amazing."

Welling up, guest coach Harding can barely listen to Bressie make his decision.

After spending time with both Heather and Sarah, the 32-year-old pop star said she was overwhelmed and very proud of the girls' performance.
