Local musician Sharon Corr was ordered not speak ahead of last Sunday night’s The Voice of Ireland on RTE 1.

Producers feared that the violinist would not be able to sing during the judge’s planned live performance.

Having battled a throat infection and kept silent during the week, the Dundalk judge made a stunning comeback with Bressie, Kian and Jamelia.

Sunday night’s show was the first live group performance since the series started.

In a new twist to the selection process, four hopefuls were booted off by the judges.

This is the second series of The Voice that Sharon has been a mentor.

Sharon lost out to fellow judge Bressie last year when her final act Vanessa Whelan came third in the competition.

The 42 year old Dundalk singer-songwriter had a busy year last year - as well as being a judge on ‘The Voice she travelled to Tanzania as part of Oxfam’s ‘Ending Poverty Starts With Women’ campaign, took part in the TV show ‘Masterpiece – Ireland’s Favourite Painting’ and performed at the Irish Pre-Oscars Show.

This year looks set to be no different as she has just announced dates for her ‘Dream of You’ Tour.

Meanwhile, Sharon’s schedule could get more intense after her brother Jim revealed that The Corrs could be set for a comeback recently.

In an interview recently, Jim revealed that there is a 95 percent chance that the band will reunite.

The platinum selling band toured the globe and captured the US market, but took a break in 2006.

Having spent 15-years on the road, the band then prioritised family life instead of fame.

Instead of being “voiceless”, Sharon may just be “Breathless” if they family band reunite.
