The Wanted to Perform on ‘The Voice’
Brace yourselves, ladies. The Wanted are scheduled to perform live on ‘The Voice‘ results show next week, so you can feast your eyes on Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes all in one place.
On Friday (April 13), the band took to Facebook to announce the exciting news. “So we’re gonna be performing on The Voice (US) next Tuesday April 17th make sure you’re tuning in…” the post read.
Oh, but there’s another reason to celebrate. The boys added, “It’s the day before Nath’s birthday so we’ll make it a good one! x.”
Although it’s not ‘The X Factor’ (from which the band was born), aligning themselves with NBC’s hit singing competition series is a smart move. The quintet is set to release their new self-titled U.S. EP on April 24 (following their two U.K. albums ‘The Wanted’ and ‘Battleground’), so any TV appearances will only leverage their sales. (We’re betting their performance of ‘Glad You Came’ on the ‘American Idol‘ stage last week didn’t hurt!)
The British pop stars are set to unveil their ‘Chasing the Sun’ video soon, and just released a new song called ‘Heart Vacancy‘ on iTunes on Tuesday. Looks like the Wanted have America right where they want them.
