Elliot through to 'Voice' live finals

Elliot Canavan Doyle from Longwood will be looking for 'Voice of Ireland' votes this weekend.

Longwood's Elliot Canavan Doyle has made it through to the live finals of RTE's 'The Voice of Ireland' TV programme.

The talented young singer qualified for the live finals in a sing-off against another another of Westlife star, Kian Egan's protegés.

His performance of Radiohead's 'Creep' convinced Kian Egan to keep him on his team and Elliot is now one of 24 hopefuls through to the live finals.

He will perform again on Sunday and will be looking for the support of the people of Meath to vote to keep him in.

"I will be putting up posters and I am urging the people of Meath to vote for me. The numbers will be put up on the night of the competition," he said.

Elliot is delighted to have made it through, but is both nervous and excited at the prospect of performing live,

At the start of the show, he was in the enviable position of being able to choose his own mentor when three of the judges expressed an interest in mentoring him.

His rendition of Damien Rice's 'Nine Crimes' so impressed the judges in the blind auditions that judges Sharon Corr, Kian Egan and Brian Kennedy all wanted him on their teams and he eventually chose the Westlife star.

Elliot, who is a son of Laura and Mark Elliot, Longwood, went to school in Kilcock and studied at NUI Maynooth for a year, before deciding this year to concentrate on his music, as he had been performing in gigs around Dublin.

He is a talented acoustic guitarist as well as singer and describes his style of music as "sad, heartbreak" stuff.
