Well, this is quite a compliment! Bill Gilman took on a BIG Martina McBride song when he sang ‘Anyway’ on the Nov. 28 episode of ‘The Voice,’ but she quickly put any of his worries at ease by tweeting him MAJOR praise of the performance. See the sweet message here!
Billy Gilman opened up The Voice Top 10 performance show with his rendition of Martina McBride’s“Anyway” on Nov. 28, and he immediately had the crowd and coaches on their feet after hitting that EPIC final note. And, it turns out Martina herself was also impressed!
“Just saw u do Anyway on @NBCTheVoice and it BLEW ME AWAY,” she tweeted at Adam Levine’s contestant. “And that clip of u onstage w/me..remember that like it was yesterday!”
In case you forgot, Billy actually started his singing career as preteen country singer with the hit song “One Voice,” so during his pre-show package on Monday, the producers made sure to roll footage of him hangin’ with Martina back in the day. Look how far he’s come now!
“Thank you for always inspiring me Martina,” the singer responded. “You’ll never know how much this means!” Billy has been a fan favorite since his Blind Audition on Season 11 of the show, and he had no trouble advancing to the Top 10. However, things are more intense than ever with just two weeks until the finale — two will be eliminated on the Nov. 29 episode, and another four will go home in next week’s Semifinals.
From what we’ve seen, it appears Billy has a pretty good chance at making it to the Finals, but anything can happen on this show, and he’ll have to keep making great song choices like this one if he wants to move on!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Billy;s performance? Are you surprised Martina responded?
