Former five boy band member Sean Conlon has auditioned for first series of The Voice UK , we can reveal.
The 30-year-old rose to fame in the 1990s with the group, with their tracks topping the UK charts for three consecutive years.
However in 2001, the group disbanded and all five members went their separate ways. Sean snubbed a failed comeback in 2007 in favour of pursuing his own solo career, which this month sees him audition for The Voice UK.
Sean is seen performing for the coaches – Jessie J, Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O’Donoghue – on the first show of the new series.
The Jazz singer auditions with Coldplay’s Trouble, performing with a piano on stage as his family watch backstage with hosts Reggie and Holly, hoping for at least one of the coaches to turn around.
The emotional performance causes more than a few tears, with Jessie J saying: “You were the first concert I ever saw!
“Your voice to me is beautiful as it is, I’d happily listen to you at home all day, and it completely chilled me out.”
Will Sean make it through? Tune into The Voice UK on BBC One from March 24 to find out.
