When the legendary singer Tom Jones appeared for a long-running stint on The Voice UK, the audience could not have guessed that they’d be treated to a surprise during one of those episodes. Tom’s voice has been described as a full, rich, robust baritone that has an alluring appeal, which can be seen on the crowd’s face.
A versatile artist, Tom has performed pop songs, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul and gospel. His husky voice quickly captured the attention of the ladies when he first broke onto the music scene, which didn’t subside even as he matured.
Fans were thrilled when Tom became a guest judge and coach on The Voice UK. The man who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to music loved his adventure on the show.
During one show on which Tom appeared alongside coaches Olly Murs, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am, Olly began singing a bit of one of Tom’s famous songs. Tom is in disbelief and shouts back “yah!”
But then the crowd began chanting Tom’s name, eager to hear the original singer of “It’s Not Unusual” perform for them from his judge’s chair. He refrains at first, but then the band begins to play the well known strains of the song.
Will.i.am sings a tiny bit and the crowd claps along. Finally, Tom can’t hold back any longer!
He starts singing quite modestly as everyone in the audience begins clapping. Olly leaps up from his chair and shakes his tush while the crowd jumps to their feet and starts dancing.
Tom finally lets loose and really throws himself into the song like everyone was hoping he would. He even treats his adoring fans to a few hip swivels and frisky moves.
This finger snapping, toe tapping tune has everyone dancing around. The lyrics are pretty peppy, too, focusing on love and life.
“It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone. It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone. But when I see you hanging about with anyone it’s not unusual to see me cry, I wanna die. It’s not unusual to go out at any time. But when I see you out and about it’s such a crime. If you should ever want to be loved by anyone. It’s not unusual it happens every day no matter what you say. You’ll find it happens all the time. Love will never do what you want it to. Why can’t this crazy love be mine?”
Jennifer gazes at Tom in wonder then Olly bows down to Tom. No one can believe what they just witnessed!
See for yourself how much fun everyone in the studio is having when Tom Jones appears on The Voice. He’s awesome to watch and listen to!
