Billy Gilman “The Voice” Knockout Video: Watch “Fight Song” Performance!
Billy Gilman sure put up a fight for his Knockout performance on “The Voice” Tuesday. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Gilman actually had a record deal as a kid and was a Grammy-nominated country artist. But his career dwindled as he aged and his voice changed. He’s remade himself into a pop singer, and scored a four-chair turn-around during the Blind Auditions.
After joining Adam Levine’s team, Gilman won his Battle face-off again Andrew DeMuro. Now the comeback star had to knock out another Team Adam member to continue his journey in the NBC competition. For this round, Gilman was able to choose his own track and he went with Rachel Platten’s inspirational hit, “Fight Song.”
During rehearsals with key advisers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, there wasn’t much advice given, as everyone was impressed by how Gilman had already mastered the anthem. Meanwhile, opponent Ponciano Seoane planned to perform “I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran. He was encouraged to start in an “upper gear” from the get-go, so he could capture people’s attention from the start.
Blake Shelton was impressed by Seoane’s performance, but felt how much Gilman wants this in his. Miley Cyrus pointed out how weird it is for her to watch Gilman perform considering she grew up listening to his music. But like Shelton, she also thought that Seoane made “I See Fire” seem like it was his own song.
But Levine could only keep one guy on his team… and Gilman was named the winner! The Maroon 5 singer confessed that eliminating Seoane after his “best performance” was “heartbreaking,” but noted of Gilman, “he could win this thing.” Check out the video below!
