The Voice 2013 final: Mike Ward & Tom Jones perform ‘Green Green Grass of Home’ (VIDEO)
Mike Ward finally got to have his dreams come true and tonight he performed for the first time with his coach and mentor Sir Tom Jones.
Tom was quick to pick Mike at the blind auditions and has saved him along the way, when it looked like his future on The Voice could be in jeopardy. Jones brought the young country singer all the way to the final, where he competes against Leah McFall, Matt Henry and Andrea Begley tonight.
Each of the finalists get to perform with their coach and for their duet, Mike and Tom chose an old Jonesy song, ‘Green Green Grass of Home.’
Tom had been asking his fans all week which tunes Mike should sing on the final and replied to them recently saying:
“Blown away by so many great song suggestions for Mike – you folks know your country tunes! Thanks to all x:-)”
Whether the fans chose tonight’s song, or he did, it was perfectly suited to both men and they more than did it justice. It was a little bit sedate and we’re not sure that it was good enough to win Ward the series, but it was an enjoyable way to spend three minutes that’s for sure.
