Thanks to the power of the internet, we are more connected to one another than ever before. It is now incredibly easy to connect with and even watch people from around the world, and the entertainment industry took that in its stride when it developed some of the biggest, and most entertaining, talent shows yet. The Voice is one such talent show, and millions tune in around the world to see who will be the next rising star.
One contestant that stood out amongst the others in Germany’s 2018 edition of The Voice – The Voice of Germany – was Matthias Nebel. Nebel entered the blind audition, where judges have to make their decision based on the sound of the performance alone, and won them away almost instantly with his rendition of a Bon Jovi classic, “Bed Of Roses”. The cover showcased his incredible voice, which you can hear for yourself in the video below:
From the instant that Nebel begins his audition, his performance strikes a chord with two judges in particular. Mark Forster (a German-Polish singer) and Michael Patrick Kelly were seen immediately smiling in recognition of this classic rock ballad and began to sing along with Nebel. With his family watching behind the scenes, it was an incredibly emotional moment for both Nebel and his parents, who are sure to be proud of his performance.
Jon Bon Jovi (born John Francis Bongiovi) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist who took the world by storm with his aptly named rock group, Bon Jovi. The outfit helped carve the way for rock and lighter aspects of metal to hit the mainstream media, with their iconic anthem “Livin’ On A Prayer” becoming a worldwide hit that still blasts the airwaves to this day.

Not only did the judges join in on Matthias Nebel’s audition, but they completely lost their minds halfway through the performance. As Nebel hits Bon Jovi’s signature high notes in exquisite form, the judges can be seen rolling around on the floor with excitement and dancing to the ballad’s sway with such enthusiasm and passion that it’s surprising Nebel managed to finish the performance without either laughing or entering a state of disbelief.
Needless to say, Matthias passed his audition and continued to remain in the competition. He would go on to compete in further stages and progress through the Battle and Sing-Off stages of the competition before ultimately being eliminated in the semi-final where he performed Bryan Adams’ “Heaven”.
Samuel Rösch won the 2018 edition of The Voice of Germany, but that didn’t stop Matthias Nebel from pursuing a music career. He remains active on social media, where he boasts an impressive 100,000,000 total views on YouTube through his range of vocal covers and song recordings. With talent such as his, we hope that he continues to nurture his gift and succeed in any opportunity that may come his way.
