I'll be back says Voice loser Chris ... with Bressie

A DUBLIN teen who lost out in the battle stage of The Voice of Ireland has vowed to return next year and pick Team Bressie next time.

Christina Foran (19) was disappointed not to make the live shows this year but is determined to work on her singing and try her luck again.

The Lucan student, who was mentored by Westlife singer Kian Egan, said she felt so supported by rival coach Niall 'Bressie' Breslin that she would love to impress him enough to make his team next year.

"Sharon Corr and Kian Egan turned around when they heard my audition, if I went back I would be lucky for any of the coaches to turn around again," Christina told the Herald.

"I'd love to go with Kian again but from day one, Bressie was the coach I wanted to have because I love his songs and (his former band) the Blizzards. He was so nice to me during filming as well, he took me under his wing.

"I got upset during rehearsals because the nerves were getting to me and he came up to me and asked me what was wrong. He was like a secondary coach to me.

"When we were all waiting around during sound check, he came up to me and [her battle rival] Elliot Canavan Doyle and asked us if we had warmed up. He was teaching us good warm-ups and giving us plenty of tips and advice. Even people on his team said he was lovely.

"I'd love to see Elliot winning, or one of the singers from Bressie's team, because they're so strong and he's such a nice guy. "

Christina and Elliot (19) were the youngest contestants to appear on the show and they were wracked with nerves during their battle duet and mentor Kian criticised their performance.
