A talented singer narrowly missed out on making it to the semi-final of the BBC’s The Voice TV show.

Sarah Cassidy was one of 12 performers to make it to the live shows quarter-final on Friday, but unfortunately didn’t make it to the next round.

Sarah (32), from Balornock, was one of three acts in coach Jessie J’s team and gave a show-stopping performance of ‘Love Sensation’.

The former Springburn Academy pupil received great comments from the other coaches – Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue. Will.i.am even told Sarah he wished he had turned round during the auditions stage.

Coaches had to decide which of their singers they would put through to the semi-final, with the public deciding which other act would join them. Jessie J chose to put through Ash Morgan, with Sarah and Matt Henry battling it out for the public vote.

Speaking before the live shows, Sarah told the Herald: “It’s been an amazing experience. I couldn’t believe it when Jessie choose me in the knockout stage. I was over the moon.

“Jessie has been amazing. She is really confident and has helped me because I’ve always been in a band and not used to performing on my own. She works you hard, but it’s for your own good. She really wants to help you.”
