West End star Matt Croke is among the hopefuls looking to impress the judges on tonight’s instalment of The Voice UK.
The actor, who played the title role of Disney’s Aladdin at the Prince Edward Theatre, will perform Come What May from Moulin Rouge during the blind auditions.
‘All my life I’ve been involved in musical theatre, it’s what I know and what I love,’ Matt began.
‘2020 changed a lot of things, but most noticeably for me, I wanted to find a different way to do what I love the most.’
‘So when an opportunity came along to be involved with The Voice UK I jumped at it,’ he added.
‘I am so proud to be doing my thing and to be waving the flag for the industry of which I am so proud to be involved in.’
Matt, who has also appeared in a string of major roles, including West Side Story’s Tony, Wicked’s Fiyero, Funny Girl’s Eddie, and Chicago’s Amos Hart, is hoping to dazzle judges Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs, will.i.am and newcomer Anne-Marie.
The winner of the show, hosted by Emma Willis, will be given a recording contract with Universal’s label UMOD.
This year the show now includes a new format twist called The Block, which offers the four coaches an opportunity to stop a fellow coach from adding a singer to their team.
And, according to host Emma, the new block button has made the coaches ‘naughty’.
Will Matt do enough to impress the coaches?
