He is a global superstar who has been in the music business for 16 years, has sold 23 million albums and done 6 world tours. In short, he is easily more famous than the four coaches of the German version the sound: Nico Santos, Mark Forster, Sarah Connor, and Johannes Oerding. Nevertheless, the Briton decided to participate in a talent show.
“I have been at home for over a year. My hands are eager to play again,” the singer explains before his audition. With a wink: “I hope I can still remember the lyrics, and the vocal cords are still working. Maybe I should have trained a little beforehand. And what if they don’t like it? If I don’t continue, what should I tell the people at home? I’ll be ashamed.” Blunt – a notorious Joker, who isn’t averse to a healthy dose of self-mockery – continues: “No, I have to. I need the money. If all goes according to plan, I’ll be back.”
