The Voice 2012: Vince Kidd wants to become a part of "pop culture"

Vince Kidd

The Voice 2012 finalist Vince Kidd has big ambitions for his career, saying he wants to become a part of "pop culture".

The 22-year-old is one of just four singers left in the competition who will go head to head on Saturday night to win the show.

Up for grabs is a record contract with Universal Music, and Vince knows exactly the type of artist he wants to be.

“I’m interested in being a part of pop culture. I couldn’t just stand there and sing or with a piano. I’d get bored. I’d want to start running around,” he said this week.

Vince — real name Matthew Protheroe — had originally taken part in The X Factor, making it all the way to the live shows where he was put in a band.

But Vince admitted that it wasn't what he wanted.

He told The Sun: “I’m a grown-up now and I can think for myself. I’m more willing to put my foot down and be myself.”
