Mayo's Chantelle Padden: "I did 7 auditions to get on The Voice UK"

They always keep the best until last on "The Voice UK" and over the weekend, that was Chantelle Padden who comes from Belmullet, Co.Mayo.  The 24-year-old singer wowed the coaches with the range in her voice.  Both Olly Murs and Will.i,am turned their chairs for her and she chose Olly as her coach.

Chantelle revealed to Ireland's Classic Hits how she had seven auditions to get through on The Voice UK.  The first six stages were via Zoom but they weren't allowed a microphone so the producers were looking for raw talent and the 7th stage was at the ITV studios in London.

Chantelle told Trina Mara how happy she is to have Olly Murs as her coach and she will be dropping hits about supporting Olly in concert when he plays The Marquee in Cork this coming June.
