Chloë's version of Nella Fantasia has been my favourite version of the song for a while.

Today, she got some company at the top.

Deirdre Shannon performed this cover of Nella Fantasia with The Celtic Tenors and my goodness is it ever breathtakingly beautiful.

The harmony was excellent. The contrast between vocal ranges, along with Deirdre's powerful voice, really allowed her to shine in this song.

It reminded me of the way Meav exercised the full power of her voice during Home for Christmas, singing above two incredible voices in Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden.

It also reminded me of the way that Ximena Borges blew the roof off the building during the finale of Rocktopia, Ode to Joy. That was darn-near the most awesome thing I've ever heard in my life! The other Rocktopia singers had REALLY strong voices and Ximena sang over top of all of them, an electric guitar, a choir, and an orchestra.  Cheesy

It's pretty heard (perhaps impossible) to beat Chloë's gorgeous voice during Nella Fantasia at the original Helix show, but this cover by Deirdre and The Celtic Tenors comes as close as anyone but Celtic Woman could.

  I  always  say  ...  "it  takes  an  Irish  lass  to  rival  an  Irish  lass.   "     Grin   It  is  too  bad  Deirdre 's  time  in  CW  was  limited,  because  of  her  awesomeness.  to  think  that  Meav,Deirdre  and  Eimear  Quinn (the last  Irish  person  to win  Eurovision)   were  all  in  Anuna  together.   (along  with Roisin  Dempsey  and  Katie  McMahon  I  might  add !  )   Shocked    Kiss  x 5
