Some people just have all the talent! Everyone, meet Dominic Clarke, out Olympic gymnast and, as of now, our new favorite The Voice contestant.
The gay, 25-year-old heartthrob and trampoline gymnast had the athletic prowess to represent his home country of Australia in Tokyo last year during the summer Olympic games, but did you also know he has a voice that can make even the most cold-hearted cynic swoon?
That was made evident last week when he covered Sam Fischer’s “This City” on the Australian version of the popular reality singing competition The Voice during the blind auditions. As a matter of fact, Clarke’s voice was so good that he had all four judges — Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Rita Ora, and Keith Urban — turning their chairs for him and had the crowd on their feet cheering him on!
“What a wild ride!” Clarke wrote on Instagram in a celebratory post following his attention-grabbing blind audition for The Voice. “Thank you to absolutely everyone who was a part of this journey, thanks to [The Voice Australia] coaches for turning and I’m so excited for the journey ahead!”
This is just the beginning of Clarke’s musical journey, as he ultimately picked pop star Rita Ora to be his coach during the competition, so we’ll just have to see how far he makes it! Consider us fans!
