STRATFORD-UPON-AVON singer Tom Barnwell admitted he was more nervous watching his performance on Saturday’s TV talent show 'The Voice' than he was when he was recording the programme in the studio.
The 26-year-old impressed judges Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, will.i.am and Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs so much that all four turned around leaving the former North Leamington School pupil to choose who he wanted to work with.
And even though Tom knew the outcome, watching his performance with family and friends brought on the jitters.
“I was just so nervous I was shaking—and I don’t know why,” he explained. “It was nice to be able to watch it with everyone and to see their reaction – but I was more nervous than I was on the day.
“It has all been a bit mad since the programme. I have been on Free Radio and Touch FM and have also done a piece with Radio 1xtra.”
On Saturday’s show, viewers watched as three of the judges started dancing to Tom’s rendition of the Adele and Kanye West’s hit American Boy.
Tom, who lives in the Bridgetown area of Stratford, chose to become part of will.i.am’s team and will work alongside the Black Eyed Peas star ahead of his next appearance on the show—in the ‘battle round’ which will be shown on Saturday.
“It was between Will and Ricky,” the singer admitted. “But Will is one of my favourite coaches on The Voice and I thought his style suited me – I like the way he has produced other acts.”
