Pip Performs Animals Hit ‘House of the Rising Sun’ on ‘The Voice’
Pip, a 19-year-old singer from Marietta, Ga., who goes by one name, tackled the classic tune 'House of the Rising Sun,' for his blind audition on tonight's episode of 'The Voice.' His rendition of the song, popularized by the Animals in the 1960s, proved to be a big hit on the show.
The young man, who looks like a cross between Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong and New Kids on the Block's Joey McIntyre, told Carson Daly that people are often surprised by his voice.
"A lot of people don't take me seriously when they see me because I do look so young," explained Pip. "I like to think that I have a much more mature voice."
Rocking a Larry King-esque button-down blue shirt with a bow-tie and suspenders, Pip took the stage and wowed the celebrity coaches immediately with his soulful voice. His confident and powerful performance was a big hit. Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine was the first to push his approval button, with the three other coaches following suit shortly thereafter.
After a commercial break, Pip chose Adam Levine to be his coach. Looks like this kid might be an early frontrunner on the competition.
