She's reached the final of the Voice of Ireland, now Dubliner Emma Humber has revealed that the nerves are building ahead of Sunday's finale.

Emma is the last act on Bressie's team, and the young singer said she can't believe she's made it this far in the competition.

"I'm a little bit nervous about the final, it's scary because you can actually see yourself winning it now," she told the Herald.

"It's scary that only one person wins. Obviously I'll be happy for them because all the contestants are really close, but I'll be sad that after all these long weeks of hard work the show will be over after Sunday.

"I really didn't expect that I would make it to the final four at all and that I would be Bressie's last act - I'm a bit of a dark horse.

"I have lots of support in Mayo where my family is from and people I went to school with in Dublin are voting for me too."


On Sunday the finalists will be singing two songs, and Emma said she's excited to show her range.

She'll be taking on a hit from last year, Hideaway by Kiesza, and she will follow that with her favourite from the series, Kate Bush's This Woman's Work.

"They are two very different songs and I hope that will show that I'm not just a certain style of singer," she said.

Emma is currently studying for a degree in English, history and geography at NUI Maynooth and has her exams next month.

"I'm going to stay in college regardless of the outcome on Sunday," she said.

"I'll keep doing music no matter what."

Emma (19) said one of her favourite parts of the show is getting her hair and make-up done each week,

"It's amazing to be sitting there next to Una and Rachel while we're getting all done up and just chatting away," she said.
