The Shields Brothers Take on Billy Idol’s ‘Dancing With Myself’ on ‘The Voice’
The Shields Brothers, a couple of young lads from Virginia, offered up a rendition of the Billy Idol classic 'Dancing With Myself' for their blind audition on NBC's 'The Voice' tonight (Feb. 27).
The two brothers, Tristan and Rory Shields, live with their parents on a farm in Rixeyville, Va., and their hope was that their big shot on 'The Voice' would help them move out of their folks' house.
With one brother playing guitar and the other sporting a wild blond hairdo and flailing around like a kid in a candy store, the duo took on Billy Idol's punk anthem with more gusto than talent. It came across like a hot mess, but somehow earned the approval of one of the four coaches -- Cee Lo Green. The other three celebrity coaches didn't bother to hit their approval buttons.
"It was chaos a little bit listening to it," said country crooner Blake Shelton. And he was right. The Shields Brothers didn't do justice to 'Dancing With Myself,' a song that Idol originally recorded with his band Generation X. Yet, they'll have another chance to prove themselves, thanks to Cee Lo.
