Nervous man walks up on the stage, brings judges to their feet when he starts to sing

There are plenty of talent shows that are being held each year, and there are always a few contestants that absolutely stand out compared to the rest. The 31-year-old Steve Barry from Kerry, Ireland who recently participated in Ireland’s Got Talent 2018 is most definitely one of them.

When Steve walked up on the stage, nobody expected that he would have such a pure, clear and amazingly powerful voice. He seemed a bit nervous before he started singing, something that clearly disappeared the moment he started performing.

The man was absolutely in his element and he knew it was his time to shine.

Steve, who has experience with musical theatre, chose a fantastic song to showcase his musical abilities, ‘Somewhere (There’s a Place for Us)’. The song which originated from the Broadway musical West Side Story from 1957 seems to be a perfect match with Steve’s crisp voice.

He managed to convince the audience the moment the first notes started hitting, but his performance also builds up over time which makes for a spectacle that has rarely been seen in talent shows like these.

When Steve sings the first and powerful chorus, the four judges are seen swaying hand in hand and admiring the contestant’s beautiful voice.

Suffice it to say, Steven’s rendition of ‘Somewhere’ definitely made a lasting impression. Even though the man was noticeably nervous at the beginning, he gathered enough courage at the end of the song to go visit the judges personally and give them an up and close performance, something they definitely seemed to enjoy.

Steve’s musical talent didn’t only steal the hearts of the judges, but the entire audience was in awe of his great voice as well. As you might expect, the man was met by an absolutely deafening applause and a standing ovation from everyone in the room – including the judges who were clearly excited.

“I wanted more and more. It was fantastic. I didn’t want it to end. What a voice. I can’t believe I overlooked you the first time. That was phenomenal,” judge Denise said.

It turns out that the man actually auditioned for a role in a West End musical, and Denise was one of the judges. Unfortunately, he didn’t make the cut then, but he was glad to be able to amaze her now instead. The man is no stranger to Louis Welsh as well, as he previously appeared on The X Factor.

Naturally, all of the judges praised Steve and he went home with four convincing yesses.

You could definitely say that Steve is a musical star in the making, and he is adored by everyone not only because of his talent but because of fantastic stage presence and his down-to-earth personality as well.

He’s clearly passionate about singing and we can’t wait to see and hear what this man has got in store later on in the competition.

Steve’s audition on Ireland’s Got Talent hasn’t gone unnoticed on the internet as well, as his performance is getting hundreds of thousands of views online.

“Wow… this guy is awesome. He looks about 17 or so but he is just so relaxed the sound just flows from him so effortlessly. Beautiful,” Kathleen Martin wrote.

One of the comments even revealed that Steve isn’t a stranger to giving performances at public places, such as London’s train station.

“Magnificent! Saw you in a London train station and stopped to listen… Absolutely fab… Best of luck at IGT… We’ll be voting for you… Hope you win…” posted Maria Bryne.

Huge choir faces away, but instant they spin around audience erupts in fit of laughter

“The William Tell Overture” may have been created for the opera William Tell, but it has been featured in cartoons, commercials, movies and even used at sporting events because of its fun, peppy, upbeat nature. The song debuted in 1829, but it likely has never been used quite like it is in the video below. The show and chamber choir with Timpanogos High School in Utah are dressed in fancy gowns and tuxedos. But when they launch into their version of “The William Tell Overture,” the crowd cannot stop laughing.

The group begins singing the beat of this song and march into one long row, then they turn their backs on the audience – except for lone girl who faces the curious crowd. She then whinnies like a horse and elicits peals of laughter from everyone. Six of the guys begin galloping on imaginary horses and are joined by the girls. They gallop and sing together while a stoic row of guys in the back begin leaping out from behind the group. They all cluster together and pretend to watch the horse races, pointing and marveling at what they see around the racetrack.

Audience members cannot stop laughing over this energetic and comical performance. The teens continue to create interesting formations all while singing the entire time. The guys strut their stuff while clutching their lapels as if they are models on the cover of GQ magazine. When they march back onto the risers, the audience believes they are done. They bop up and done on the risers for a bit but then at the 2:23 mark, they do something so funny that you absolutely have to see it! It’s completely unexpected! This crew wraps up their routine with whimsical choreography and beautiful singing, then are rewarded with an enthusiastic round of applause from the audience. Be sure to check out their version of “The William Tell Overture” in the video below. It’s too cute!

81-year-old guitarist stuns shop staff with incredible spontaneous performance

Have you ever learned to play an instrument? I haven’t, so I am in awe whenever I see someone playing an instrument so skillfully. However, I was more than in awe when I saw this video of Bob Wood jamming on a guitar in a music store.

To put it into context, Bob was likely learning guitar when The Beatles were at the height of their fame. Although The Beatles and their peers have their heydays behind them, Bob is still going strong!

Bob is no stranger to performing, however. Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, he was hired as a regular performer at Jamboree USA in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1970, where he played regularly for 10 years. He was awarded the title «Entertainer of the Year» by Eastern States Country Music Inc. By 2007, he had been welcomed into the Southern Legends Country Music Hall of Fame. He even released a number of albums including the 70s cult hit «Bob Wood Plays It Cool».

They start to sing queen classic, but 30 seconds in crowd erupts in fit of laughter

Queen’s classic hit “Bohemian Rhapsody” has been performed countless times since its original release. This six-minute suite features several sections – including an intro, a ballad segment, an operatic passage, a hard rock part, and a reflective coda. Needless to say, it takes quite a bit of talent to do this classic song justice! Get ready to hear “Bohemian Rhapsody” like never before, in this unique rendition that is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear.

When a group of sharply dressed college men stood next to each other with their heads down and hands folded across their chests on stage, the audience had no idea what they were about to be treated to. Members of the University of California, Berkeley, a cappella group Octet begin singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” much to the delight of the audience. It doesn’t take long for the performance to take an interesting turn, and the moment it happens the audience erupts in a fit of laughter.

They throw in some fancy footwork and fun choreography throughout their performance, which includes short solos and beautiful harmony. But the moment they begin singing the instrumental parts themselves a cappella, the audience completely loses it.. At the 2:48 mark, the crowd cannot stop cracking up when they perform their vocal version of the guitar solo from the original song. At 3:48, one of the guys hits such a high note that the audience is stunned. Their choreography takes it up a notch when they reach the final head-banging section. Pay close attention to end when they segue into the next section of this song. They’re really good and fun to watch!
