Ross Clayton is a talented singer and a father of three. He put his singing career aside for awhile so he could focus on his family. But finally, he took a chance by showcasing his singing talent on Season 23 of The Voice…and that effort paid off big time!
Clayton performed a cover of Keith Urban‘s #1 hit, “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Urban released “Blue Ain’t Your Color” in 2016 as the fourth single off of his Ripcord album. The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards and also won the CMA Award for Single of the Year.
In other words, Clayton had a lot to live up to when he decided to tackle “Blue Ain’t Your Color” on The Voice. But he proved himself with his performance, which ended up getting all four coaches to turn their chairs for him!
All of the coaches made enthusiastic pitches to Clayton. But no one made a more convincing pitch than new coach Niall Horan. Horan made it clear he was a HUGE fan of Clayton. He drove things home by hitting the buttons on all of the other coaches’ chairs to turn them back around, so Clayton could only focus on him.
Clayton liked Horan’s spirit, and happily picked him as his coach. This probably came as a shock to some viewers, who likely assumed Clayton would join Team Blake since he performed a country song.
But now Clayton is a member of Horan’s team! Watch his audition below to see how he ended up there.
We can’t wait to see what else Clayton has in store for us on this season of The Voice!
