Man who charmed judges with country singing reveals a hidden talent that makes audience dance
On Monday night, “The Voice” judges and coaches had the pleasure of having a country singer on their Blind Auditions stage. The contestant also had a hidden talent.
Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson found themselves fighting over a contestant named Dave Fenley. Only one judge got chosen to coach Fenley.
For the Blind Auditions, Dave Fenley, 39, sang his rendition of “Help Me Hold On” by Travis Tritt. Being a country singer herself, Kelly Clarkson wasted no time pressing her button.
Another country artist and “The Voice” judge, Blake Shelton, soon followed suit. Judges Jennifer Hudson and Adam Levine didn’t bother pressing their buzzers as they knew the country singing contestant would want Clarkson or Shelton.

Shelton tried to win the contestant over by sharing his love for Tritt. He said:
"That was his second single. That was right after 'Country Club,' wasn't it?"
Seeing what he was trying to do, Clarkson rolled her eyes and one-upped him by saying:
"[Travis Tritt] is my favorite male vocalist in country.”
Fenley then mentioned that his mother, who was watching the audition backstage along with other family members, asked him to ask Shelton for a neck hug. The judge’s response was:
"Is that right? I give some really good neck hugs to my contestants' mothers."
The two judges kept trying to convince Fenley to join their teams and he showed his versatility by beatboxing a bit and making them dance.
In the end, he went with Shelton. The country singer hails from Texas and this wasn't his first reality TV appearance.
In 2013, he made it to the semifinals of "America's Got Talent.” He’s already released music with his most recent EP featuring six-songs and is called “The Love Sessions Vol. 1.”
"The Voice" will air at 7 p.m. CT on Monday and Tuesday on NBC.
