Offaly singer Luz Corrigan has been chosen as one of just five finalists in a Today FM competition with Dermot & Dave.

The Dermot & Dave show has teamed up with Kodaline to give one lucky act the prize of a lifetime; a slot supporting for them at their St. Anne's Park concert on Saturday, June 1.

The lads called Luz during their show on Tuesday to inform the 18-year-old Ferbane songstress that she had made the shortlist of five in with a chance of playing in front of 15,000 people.

The eventual winner will be chosen by Kodaline, Philip Magee and Today FM and will also receive a €5,000 cash prize.

Luz Corrigan's online videos have earned her huge acclaim and attention and her cover of a Dean Lewis track even saw her picked up by the Australian singer-songwriter to support him at his Irish gig in Vicar Street.

Speaking after receiving the news she had been chosen as a finalist, Luz said: "To even be considered is a dream, I freaked out when I heard because I really didn't think I had a chance, I almost didn't enter - my mom made me."

A version of Luz's original song We'll Be Fine was played during Dermot & Dave's show on Tuesday with further praise flooding in, including from Bressie who text Dermot & Dave to compliment her voice.
