Interview: The Format Meets The Voice of Ireland’s Nollaig O’Connor
If you follow us on Twitter you’ll know that we got shamelessly sucked into some reality TV in the form of The Voice of Ireland over the past number of weeks. Drawn first to the bickering between judges Bressie and Kian Egan, we slowly discovered that despite a few nods to cheesyness, The Voice is refreshingly lacking in the drams and sob stories we’ve come to expect from reality telly. So far, we’re happy to report, few tears, no tales of anyone having one leg or some horribly deformed grandaunt, and an actual bitta talent to boot.
We’ve been livetweeting it every Sunday night and a certain @nollaigshona89 from Team Sharon caught us saying we were totally impressed by her rendition of U2’s With Or Without You. She’s since made it through her battle round, and she came to have a chat to us ahead of her first live show tonight (it’ll be on RTÉ 1 from 6.30pm).
