Kent singer Ivy Paige from Maidstone loses in battle round of The Voice

By William Janes

It was the end of The Voice for Kent singer Ivy Paige after she lost out in the battle rounds.

The sassy singer from Maidstone had judge Olly Murs babbling like a flustered schoolboy when she first auditioned for the ITV show, but he said goodbye to the hopeful last night.

Ivy, who grew up in Rainham, found herself in a sing-off against Shane McCormack, in a joint performance of the song Sway.

At the end of the song, Olly told Ivy "your performance is amazing" but still chose to keep Shane.

Ivy told him: "Thank you for being such a great coach, thank you for all your wonderful feedback, I will take everything on board."

Fans, however, have shared their disappointment on social media with some suggestions both performers should have been put through.

The knock-out round gives other judges the chance to "steal" performers, but Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am had used all their chances.

Olly later tweeted: "So sad to say goodbye to @TheIvyPaige I’ve loved every minute working with you babe! I’ll never forget you and that blind audition. Thanks for being so professional & awesome! Your one of a kind! Keep in touch."
