Online bullies make me feel bad - Emma

Dubliner Emma Humber has revealed that she's seen a lot of mean comments about her online since she made it through to the quarter finals of The Voice Of Ireland on Sunday night.

Emma (19) has made it to the final 12 of the competition on Bressie's team, but says the online bullies have been tough to deal with.

"I've been on Twitter and I've had good comments there but the main negativity is on Facebook pages. I've seen horrible comments about me posted by people on Bressie's page," Emma told the Herald.

"You just have to be able to be take it all with a pinch of salt, but people were saying things like 'She shouldn't have gone through' and 'You missed out on talent by picking Emma'.

"It makes me feel bad because we've been working together for seven months now, we're like a family so it's hard for me to see other contestants go as well.

"Once it goes to the public vote in a few weeks I think it will be easier because people can't fault the decision then," she added.

Performing

While she has a few weeks off to prepare for her next live show, Emma will be performing as part of the Muller Corner Red Chair Tour at the Pavilions Shopping Centre in Swords this Saturday.

"We get to sing six songs of our choice and we get to meet people who are fans of the show," she said.

"It's a great opportunity to showcase my voice and the range of different songs that I can sing," she added.
