Tom Nitti The Voice
Tom Nitti is a contestant in the 24th season of NBC’s The Voice. While auditioning, he performed a rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)” in The Voice Blind auditions. He wore a cowboy hat and boots, adding a country flair to the Motown classic.
Judges John Legend, Gwen Stefani, Niall Horan and Reba McEntire could all be seen bobbing their heads and looked impressed by his howling notes during Monday night’s Blind Auditions.
Noticeably, none of the celebrity panelists turned their chairs —until the very last second when McEntire gave her stamp of approval as Nitti jumped up and down in excitement. McEntire was especially surprised to learn he was from Upstate New York, suggesting she expected him to be from the south by only listening to his voice.
The other judges didn’t turn their chairs, but all agreed he deserved to go on to the next round. Stefani called him “different” (in a good way) and Horan, admitted he cannot sing anything the way Nitti did.
“It was very soulful, but it had like a twang to it,” Legend said. “I was like, ‘Is he a country singer?’ So I’m very excited for you to be on Team Reba.”
McEntire said something in her “gut” told her she should turn her chair, and added that she is glad Nitti will be on her team. She also gave him a hug as he walked off stage.
Nitti’s grandfather, Dominick Nitti, told WKTV that Tom actually auditioned on “The Voice” eight years ago and was accepted, but had to decline continuing on the show because he was accepted to the Police Academy program for NYS Troopers at the same time.
“We are just so proud of him,” Dominick told the Utica TV station. “We are proud of anything he’s done. He served his country. He serves his community each day.”
