Matthias Nebel is a rock star in the making. The Austrian singer-songwriter is best known for his 2018 and 2020 performances on Germany’s version of The Voice. For his blind audition, he chose Bon Jovi’s classic ballad Bed of Roses and wowed the judges with his impressive vocal prowess. The video was posted to YouTube a couple of months ago and has already racked up more than 20 million views in less than a year.
Two of the celebrity coaches turned their chairs around after just the first few lines of his performance and it’s not hard to see why. Nebel’s voice is powerful and clear, but what really takes the cake is his ability to hold a note for so long without losing any of its emotion.
In the end, however, Nebel was not able to advance past the semifinals, despite his amazing performance on The Voice of Germany. Several people in the comments section blamed the song choice for his lack of advancement, arguing that the pop hit did not flatter Nebel’s natural rocker pipes. But the good news is that Nebel has a new single out called Back to You. Check it out below!
