Danny still go­ing in The Voice

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

DANNY Ross has ad­vanced into the top eight on The Voice Aus­tralia af­ter Joel Mad­den threw him a life­line af­ter fail­ing to win the pub­lic vote with his uber cool ren­di­tion of the Jimi Hen­drix clas­sic All Along The Watch Tower. Mad­den picked him ahead of fel­low con­tes­tant Lyric McFar­land af­ter the sing-off. ‘‘You’ve got this mys­te­ri­ous thing about you and we want to know more,’’ Mad­den told Ross. ‘‘If I could, I would take you back to Amer­ica and record with you.’’

Ross belted out the Hen­drix clas­sic on Mon­day’s show­down episode, earn­ing unan­i­mous praise from the judges. Seal was im­pressed by the 30-year-old’s stage pres­ence, telling him he wanted to see more.

‘‘I love the song, I love what you’re about and I want to see more of it,’’ he said.

Delta Goodrem raved about Ross’ eclec­tic style and per­son­al­ity.

‘‘You just are so cool and ex­ude this re­ally fas­ci­nat­ing qual­ity that’s re­ally some­thing of an­other era,’’ she said.
