‘Voice’ Contestant Daniel Rosa Sings Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’
Chances are, you’ve heard Gotye‘s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ so many times that you feel like you never need to hear it again — let alone yet another mashup or cover. But please allow Daniel Rosa, returning contestant on the new season of ‘The Voice,’ to try and change your mind.
Rosa, a ukulele-playing Californian who missed the cut last season when he auditioned with Neon Trees‘ ‘Animal,’ returned last night — and this time, things turned out a little differently.
Last night’s episode took place during the show’s blind audition process, when singers perform with the judges’ backs turned, so none of the ‘Voice’ mentors who had to send Rosa home last season knew who they were listening to at first. That quickly changed, however, once Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green pushed their buttons, flipping their chairs around and registering Rosa’s return with obvious delight.
The biggest reaction, however, came from Adam Levine, who actually rushed Rosa to give him a hug once his performance ended. Obviously stunned by the response, Rosa could only shout, “You do remember me!” It was, as HitFix understatedly put it, “a nice moment.” Check it out in the clip embedded below.
