Billy Gilman ‘The Show Must Go On’ “The Voice” Video: Watch Top 12 Performance!
Billy Gilman sang the heck out of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On” on Monday’s “The Voice.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Gilman is a former child country star who scored a Grammy nomination before he was even a teen. Due to voice changes and other issues, however, he ended up losing his Sony record deal. Now remade into a pop star, Gilman is making quite the comeback on “The Voice.”
After easily making it through the Blind Auditions, Battles and Knockouts, he secured his spot in the Top 12 by earning enough votes from viewers during last week’s Live Playoffs. Now to make into the Top 11, Gilman had to sing live for the second time of the NBC competition. And he chose a huge rock ballad to help him earn a spot.
During rehearsals with coach Adam Levine and key adviser Garth Brooks, it was revealed the country superstar already knew the contestant from his early career. “What I heard today, the future now belongs to him,” Brooks said. And to Gilman, the song represented his reemergence in the music scene.
Now his live performance led to a standing ovation from all four coaches. Levine even stood on his chair, yelling to the crowd, “Stand up!” Blake Shelton spoke first, saying the performance was “amazing,” and reflecting on how far Gilman has come. “You are a million times better as an adult,” he said.
Levine then exclaimed, “Wow.” He went on, “What could possibly epitomize the show more than someone who sings the way you do with the conviction that you do?” Check out the video below!
