After singing 5 words, 'The Voice' contestant made all the judges turn their chairs
On “The Voice: Holland,” everybody was stunned during the blind auditions when the hopeful sang the first five words of the song he chose, which was James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s World.”
The judges must have already heard hundreds of singers already, but when he sang the lyrics, “this is a man’s world,” all of the judges immediately pressed their buttons.
Everyone was surprised that it only took seconds before the judges turned their seats. The entire place was taken over by cheers and applause from the crowd.
The judges were blown away by the hopeful’s performance. Although, there was another surprise.
In the middle of his performance, one of the judges realized that the person singing in front of them was none other than actor Charly Luske.
36-year-old Luske is an Amsterdam actor, who turned out to be a fantastic singer as well. His rendition of “It’s A Man’s World” was stitched with both power and soul.
His blind audition on the show’s second season was uploaded on YouTube in May 2015, and since then, it has been viewed more than 44 million times with almost 200,000 likes.
Unfortunately, Luske did not win the season and only lasted until the semi-finals.
Nonetheless, the actor captured everyone’s hearts during his first audition, and since then, he has been one of the most viral singers that ever auditioned on the hit singing competition.
Meanwhile, one of the other viral artists that auditioned on “The Voice” was Travis Cormier. He auditioned for the French-Canadian version of the singing competition, singing Aerosmith’s “Dream On.”
The judges were amazed by his performance because of his ability to reach the high notes just like the band’s frontman, Steven Tyler.
