A Cornish teenager has made it through the knockouts on The Voice, to reach the semi-finals!

Molly Hocking from St Ives was just 17-years-old when she wowed the judges in the  blind auditions.

Her cover of 'With You' from Ghost The Musical stole the battle round against Connie.

Now her emotional version of Christina Perri's 'Human' has won Molly a place in the semi-finals.

Speaking before Saturday’s show, Molly told Neil and Lucy at Breakfast what a place in the semi-finals would mean.

"I want to have a recording contract. I want to be an international recording artist. But other than that, I quite like presenting. Anything that's thrown at me I'm happy".

"The whole of Cornwall has literally got behind me. All of my old school mates are messaging me, mum's friends - everyone.

"People I don't know are coming up to me in the street, asking for selfies and telling me they're going to support me.

"It's just absolutely amazing".
