Luke Combs performed his hit single “Even Though I’m Leaving” on last night’s season finale of The Voice. However just a few years ago, Luke himself tried out for The Voice and show producers deemed him not “interesting” enough to get a spot on the show.
In an interview with Whiskey Rifffrom back in the day, Luke detailed his experience with the show:
They had four audition cities and narrowed it from about 10,000 to 200 people. Then you don’t know if you made it to the show for a few months. I made it through those rounds with the producers, but I got a letter saying I wasn’t “interesting” enough for the show’s ratings so I didn’t get to the show. But it gave me a lot of confidence because I was good enough voice wise to make it through all those producer auditions.”
As is turns out, just a few years later, Luke would be invited to perform on the The Voice, but not as a contestant. No, Luke took the stage as special guest performer, singing one of his many #1 singles, as the biggest thing in country music right now.
