‘The Voice’ has had its fair share of dramatic moments over the years. This audition is no different as ‘The Voice’ U.K. version frustrates fans who yelled, ‘Push the button!’
John Rafferty steps on stage to perform the hit sing-along tune ‘Country Roads’ by John Denver. His voice immediately grabs the judges’ attention. The audience claps and sings along with John as he performs.
Throughout the performance, fans yell for the judges to push the button. They sit smiling, even singing along, but they refuse to turn their chair. John makes it all the way to the song’s last note without a judge choosing him.
John admits that being on the show was one of the most nerve-wracking things he’s ever done. He noted that he had to do five auditions before getting to the big stage.
Judges Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Will-I-AM, and Ricky Wilson all seemed to enjoy the performance, but not enough to push their button. At one point, Tom Jones was hovering over his, yet he still didn’t hit it by the end.
John Rafferty has continued to make music releasing two albums titled, ‘Shake a Hand’ and ‘Comfort of Her Wings.’ He views his experience on the show as a huge achievement!
Many people have disagreed with the judges’ choices on ‘The Voice.’ Few performers have received the love and outpouring of support that John has during his attempt at stardom. He’s a positive guy who keeps moving forward to pursue his dream!
