Chris Royal is set to make his debut appearance on The Voice this weekend, Unreality TV can reveal.
The 25 year old singer from Fallowfield turned up to the BBC centre in Salford at the end of last year, desperate to impress Kylie Minogue, Will.i.am, Tom Jones or Ricky Wilson and to win himself a place in the battle rounds.
The hopeful has plenty of performing experience and has previously acted as a backing singer on Josh Groban’s UK tour, starred in ‘The Best of Broadway’ with Coronation Street actress Suranne Jones and Christmas on Broadway with late Boyzone star Stephen Gately and he’s even supported R&B superstar Ne-Yo.
However Chris is keen to make it under his own named now and he told The Manchester Evening News that he applied for The Voice because it wasn’t the “typical talent show”.
He has some reality TV experience, having previously participated in Channel 4’s Musicool and the wannabe explained:
Chris says: “I’ve always wanted to sing from a young age. I liked the idea of The Voice because it’s not your typical talent show, and it is all about the voice.”
He performs a stripped back version of Wake Me Up by Avicci for the panel.
16 year old singer Joe Keegan doesn’t just play five instruments, but he’s a champion Irish dancer too and he manages to teach Will.i.am a few steps after his audition.
The blind auditions are nearing their end this year and soon the BBC series will move into it’s pre-recorded battle stage and edge closer to the eventual live shows.
Tom, Kylie, Will and Ricky just have to make up the rest of their teams….
