Laois woman in the hunt for last grand final spot in popular new RTE singing game show

Doireann O'Connor Last Singer Standing

A Laois woman remains in the hunt for the last spot in the grand final of a popular new RTE singing game show.

Doireann O’Connor from Ballyroan appeared last week on the sixth episode of Last Singer Standing.

However, as she did not get a chance to perform last week, she will be back on our TV screens tonight in the last episode of this phase of the competitions.

She follows in the footsteps of Portlaoise’s Anna Bergin who appeared in episode one and reached the final sing off where she just lost out on the audience vote.

While Laois are guaranteed to have at least one person in the final after the stunning Rachael Farrell appeared on episode 3 and won it. 

Hosted by Nicky Byrne, the judges on the show are Nadine Coyle, Joey Fatone and Samantha Mumba.

The show itself requires contestants to face off against each other in a test of singing ability where a Star Singer is selected at random initially and then there are three rounds on each episode where the singers go up against each other.

The overall winner of each episode goes forward to the grand final in the concluding episode in Week 8 on December 11.

While the overall winners will also walk away with the €25,000 first prize.

Last Singer Standing continues on RTÉ One on Saturday, December 3, and airs at 8.20pm.
