Kevin Davy White impressed with his audition The X Factor – watch his first TV appearance on The Voice.
Former electrician turned full time musician, 29-year-old Kevin Davy White originally comes from Paris.
Having quit his “boring” day job, Kevin is now hoping to make it in the music industry.
He revealed ahead of his audition on The X Factor UK that he had previously taken part in The Voice France in 2016.
Kevin performed Kings Of Leon’s Use Somebody but didn’t manage to get any of the coaches spinning around.
Hoping for better luck here in the UK on The X Factor, Kevin said back at the room auditions: “The X Factor is a really big stage and I want people to hear my music.
“Now I’m going to take my moment and I hope the judges love what I’m doing.”
At his room audition, Kevin grabbed his guitar to sing James Brown’s It’s A Man’s Man’s World.
And his performance on the UK show got him a much better reaction than compared to The Voice.
Nicole Scherzinger, Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne all gave Kevin a yes through to the next round.
Nicole was particularly impressed after the audition.
“Who are you and where did you come from because I LOVE you!” she gleefully declared, “You, your voice, you can make a record. A real record, I would listen to your voice.”
And Sharon quipped: “You don’t need a microphone, you have a huge voice!”
With four yeses, Kevin sailed through to the next round of the competition.
He’ll go on to sing at bootcamp, hoping for a place at the six chair challenge next month.
The X Factor 2017 airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
