Tonight in the fourth main heat of You're A Star, to find Ireland's Eurovision Song Contest representative, the public voted in their thousands again, as Dubliner Sinead Mulvey, became the latest act to be voted off the show.

The theme for tonight's show was Top Of The Pops. Each act had to perform a song which had been a hit in the past twelve months.

First on stage was Sinead Mulvey, who sang the White Stripes song Seven Nation Army, she was followed by Donna and Joseph McCaul with Stand By Me which had been a recent hit for the group Girls Aloud.

Next up was Pete Fagan with his rendition of the Scissor Sisters song Take Your Momma, followed by the girl band Jade singing the McFly hit Obviously.

Lorraine Mahler then sang Damien Rice's song Cannonball before it was the turn of Ann Harington, the niece of 1994 Eurovision Song Contest winner Paul Harrington, with Anastasia's hit Left outside Alone.

Last week's poll winners The Henry Girls performed their version of U2's Vertigo, and then Aine O'Doherty closed the show with the Killer's song Mr Brightside.

Then it was upto the public to vote by telephone and SMS before the results were announced later in the evening.

Pete Fagan topped the poll this week, with The Henry Girls coming second, and Jade third. So, the only surviving male solo act and the two bands had survived for another week. Duo Donna and Joseph McCaul finished fourth, Aine O'Doherty was fifth and Lorraine Maher survives for another week coming in sixth place.

So, with one place remaining, it was between Ann Harrington and Sinead Mulvey. Ann Harrington had been in the bottom two the previous week, but she survived yet again as Sinead Mulvey was the act that had received the fewest votes. Hazel Kaneswaran on the judging panel said she was shocked at the reuslt as she thought that Sinead had performed better than some of the other solo female acts that night.

Seven acts now remain in with a chance to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest semifinal on the 19th May in Kiev.
