"Votes are crucial now," said Pandy who has been saved two weeks in row by the judges from elimination.

"They saved me on Tuesday past possibly because I sang an original song called 'Bright Star' that left the presenter almost in tears so I'm told - I haven't seen it as yet," he said.

Pandy, mentored by Johnny Brady, is planning to sing another original song in the final.

Nineteen-year-old Lauren posted on Facebook that she is still in shock after making the final with Pandy and Dermot.

Each singer shone in their own concert episode where they performed both alone and accompanied by their Glór Tíre mentor.
