Billy Gilman killed it last night on ‘The Voice’
Comeback kid Billy Gilman gave it his considerable all in the semifinals of NBC’s The Voice on Monday.
The openly gay singer belted out the Celine Dion power ballad I Surrender and hit all the right notes on an evening when the season’s remaining eight performers vied for a spot in the finals.
Gilman received a standing ovation from all four judges after his performance.
Adam Levine, who has been Gilman’s coach, told the audience and viewers at home that the panel had ‘the look of shock and amazement’ as Gilman performed.
Gilman also joined forces with Christian Cuevas to sing Unsteady by X Ambassadors.
If Gilman were to advance to the finals and win The Voice, it will cap what has already been a stunning return for the former child country music star.
Gilman had sold more than 5 million records but then faded into obscurity 10 years ago.
Now 28, Gilman came out publicly as a gay man in 2014 and began his comeback.
