Local Hudson Valley Man Sings His Heart Out on ‘The Voice’ [Video]
A local man competed on NBC's The Voice this week, singing his heart out during a blind audition in front of Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani. Evan Watson, a local brewer with Plan Bee Farm Brewery in Fishkill performed The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.
After proclaiming he was from Fishkill, Watson gained screams from the audience that caused Adam Levine to yell a surprised "What?!?" as Blake Shelton jokingly chimed back to the crowd "You are not from Fishkill!"
Unfortunately, the rest of the feedback wasn't as much fun. Gwen Stefani told Watson to "spice it up" and control his performance, while Pharrell advised him that if he gets his voice under control he may one day be "something special."
Here's Watson's full performance so you can judge for yourself:
So what do you think? If you were a judge would you have picked Evan Watson for The Voice?
