When you're singing a really popular song in a blind audition, you need to be able to do either of two things to catch the judges' attention. One is that you have to sing the song as perfectly as the original singer has done or two, you need to be able to do something with the song to make it your own.
For Matthias Nebel the choice was easy. From the moment he planned on auditioning to the time he decided what song to perform, he knew what to do to force the coaches to turn around for him.
And with how well he has performed on stage, the judges didn't really wait for his last note before all of them pressed their buttons. The moment Matthias unleashed the rocker in himself, the judges got lost in his performance. They were singing along and were clearly having a great time!
Matthias performed one of Bon Jovi's most popular songs "Bed of Roses." Hearing the first few notes of the song, the judges have already shown interest in Matthias. And when he reached the higher parts of the song, two of the judges instantly hit their buttons. The other two didn't wait that long to press theirs either.
Seeing all four judges turned, Matthias' band mates, stepbrother, and father were all ecstatic. They were happily cheering him on. Matthias ended up with coach Michael Patrick Kelly who also happened to be a huge Bon Jovi fan.
"Bed of Roses" was officially released as a single in 1993 by the American rock band Bon Jovi. It was written by the band's lead Jon Bon Jovi in a hotel room. Considering the band's success as a glam metal band during the 1980s, the release of this single gave them a newer and more mature sound. Its power ballad style made them a lot more popular and the song instant reached the Billboard Hot 100's 10th spot.
Bon Jovi have produced songs that made waves worldwide. Some of their popular songs include "Livin' On A Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Always", "Bad Medicine", "I'll Be There for You", and "It's My Life."
Matthias, also known as Matt Valentine, has an intense passion for music. He performs as a rock singer and goes on tours with his band in Austria. He works as a lifeguard and community servant.
Matthias' performance is truly a delight for any rock and Bon Jovi fan.
