A Falkirk singer wowed the judges on BBC’s ‘The Voice’ at the weekend.

Over 9.6 million viewers tuned in to see Barbara Bryceland (47) sing her rendition of ‘Wild Horses’ by The Rolling Stones.

The new talent competition sees contestants give a ‘blind audition’ with the judges - Tom Jones, Jessie J, Will I. Am and Danny O’Donoghue - unable to see what they look like so only their talent is a factor in whether they are successful.

Barbara is through to the next round of the competition after Welsh legend Tom Jones selected her as one of his 10-strong coaching team. The winner of ‘The Voice’ will receive a recording contract with Universal and the chance of a pop career.

The grandmother is well known locally, having been singing in bars and clubs for years including La Banca, Behind the Wall and various social clubs.

Since the show was aired on Saturday, the You Tube clip of her audition has been viewed over 16,000 times.

Barbara, who also appeared on The X Factor in 2007, will perform in Behind the Wall in Melville Street, Falkirk, on April 21.
