I bet you weren't expecting to hear anything about The Voice Of Ireland until January but with Blind Auditions set to be filmed at the end of October, RTE have finally announced the coaches line-up for the second series with just one coach set to depart and to be replaced by a British R&B superstar.

Jamelia, best known for hits including 'Thank You' and 'Superstar' will be joining Bressie, Sharon and (unfortunately) Kian for the second series of the Irish version of the popular talent show when it hits our screens at the start of next year, replacing Brian Kennedy who cannot return to his role as a coach due to scheduling issues apparently. Hopefully Jamelia will be able to do a good job in her role as coach because although Brian was better than Kian, his song choices were often quite dull and dated compared to fellow coaches Bressie and Sharon (Corr) who tried to change things up a bit with different arrangements.
