Here is the Cork girl who wowed the public on The Voice UK last night

Meet Claudia Rose Long.

COULD A GIRL from Cork win The Voice UK?

Don’t rule it out.

Claudia Rose Long wowed judges on The Voice UK last night with a performance of Love You I Do from the film Dreamgirls.

The 17-year-old’s performance caused both Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson to turn their chairs. Both judges fought hard to convince Long to join their respective teams, but Long ultimately opted to go with Jones.

Long was the talk of social media last night with many commending her for her powerhouse performance.

Jaymi from Union J also singled her out.

For her part, Claudia seems pretty chuffed about the whole thing. Can’t say we blame her.

The Cork singer will be next seen in the battle rounds.

Good luck, Claudia!

Everyone is talking about this horribly awkward Fifty Shades of Grey interview >

Graham Norton forced two audience members to Irish dance last night and it was priceless >
