Gallagher's fate to be revealed on 'The Voice' finale


LOS ANGELES - For months, fans across central Pennsylvania and the country have been following Josh Gallagher’s journey on “The Voice.” Going back to the blind auditions; the Cresson native said he only dreamed he would make it to the final four.

“This whole ride, people were like, ‘are you nervous?’ I said, ‘whatever happens, happens,’ Gallagher said before Monday night’s finale on NBC. “I went on the show not knowing... I would never have guessed in a million years I would be in the top four on The Voice.”

During Monday night’s performance, Josh hit the stage to perform three different times. But the singer says singing “Pick Any Small Town,” a song he wrote with former contestant Nolan Neal and Jeremy Bussey, was his favorite performance of the night.

“It’s one of those songs that comes so natural and because we wrote it so well, it’s one of those… you don’t have to think about it. It’s just feeding off the crowd at that point,” Gallagher said on the red carpet after his performance. “It’s kind of like, not that I blanked out but like, I don’t know, the energy in that was room was something I’ve never experienced before. And to be able to do it with one of my songs was pretty incredible.“

As for Gallagher’s coach, Adam Levine:

“He didn’t have a choice, which I’m actually happy that he didn’t. 'Cause had he had a choice, he obviously wouldn’t be with me. “

The Maroon 5 singer said having a country singer on his team proves a big point for future contestants.

“And I think tonight has proven that. 'Cause I got one in the finale.”

Gallagher says he’s been overwhelmed by the love and support from his fans. But there’s just one person he hopes to really impress--his wife.

“I try to find Lindsay and my mom every time I go on stage,” Gallagher said. “I don’t know, it's just a thing I do… Call it routine, superstition, whatever you want… I always find them on stage either before or while I’m performing.”

The results will be revealed on the live final of ‘The Voice’ starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday on WJAC-TV
