Josh Gallagher performs in the semifinals on 'The Voice'
Cresson native Josh Gallagher took the stage on NBC’s "The Voice" for the semifinals on Monday night.
The singer is currently in the top eight of the competition.
Gallagher performed two different songs during Monday night’s episode.
First, he sang a duet with one of the other artists he's competing against--Sundance Head.
Together they sang Joe Cocker's "Feeling Alright.”
Then Gallagher hit the stage again to perform “Danny’s Song” by Loggins and Messina.
Josh’s coach Adam Levine praised Gallagher’s solo performance, saying “vocally that was the best of the night".
After the show, Gallagher shared how he felt about his own performance.
“I'm excited, it really went well tonight. It was an intimate kind of me moment. I've been longing to do on the show for a while. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more.”
Gallagher also mentioned the crowd seemed to enjoy the performance just as much as he did.
“I mean the crowd was completely into it. I looked up to the crowd and they were waving their hands and everyone was up.”
Josh's family and friends gathered at the Sankertown VFW to watch their favorite guy on the show.
His aunt Sandra Rose-Felix said she was proud of her nephew's performance and was emotionally moved by the song he chose.
"He got into people's hearts and just pulled on their strings, and I’m just so proud of him. I'm just so happy for him and he nailed it. And like Adam Levine said, he had the best performance of the night. He just sang that song from his heart to his wife, and that kid is unbelievably talented."
There are five different ways to vote for Gallagher in order for him to move on in the competition.
Gallagher also gets credit for anyone who streams or buys his songs on iTunes.
The voting polls will end on Tuesday at noon.
Fans can watch to see if Gallagher moves on by watching the results on Tuesday at 8 p.m. on WJAC-TV.
