Kirkcaldy firefighter Stevie McCrorie is one step closer to realising his dream after he made it through to the live semi-finals of BBC talent show ‘The Voice’ on Saturday night.
The father-of-one, who celebrates his 30th birthday today (Monday), was given a fast pass by coach Ricky Wilson, excluding him from the public vote, after he performed live at the quarter-finals.
Stevie, who is the only Scot among the contestants, said he was “speechless” after winning the first place in next week’s semi final and hinted he may do something Scottish in the next live show.
He took to the stage to perform “All Through the Night” by Cyndi Lauper, a lesser known song, but still a crowd pleaser.
Afterwards Stevie said: “I feel absolutely amazing. That was one of the best experiences I have had in my life.”
Stevie’s mentor, Kaiser Chief frontman Ricky Wilson, told him after that performance he believed he could win the show. While fellow judge Will.i.am told him: “You are the real deal.”
Each of the four coaches was given a fast pass to exclude one of their three acts from the public vote.
As a result eight acts will now compete for the chance to perform in the live final.
