A Derry man is set to appear on The Voice on Saturday night.

Johnny Kohlmeyer is hoping to wow the judges Tom Jones,, Kylie Minogue and Kaiser Chief’s frontman Ricky Wilson with his peformance of All Night Long.

30 year-old Johnny was born in Florida and came over to Northern Ireland when he was 9 years old. After school he joined the army.

He told the ‘Journal’ last night he’d be watching the episode at home with his family in Shantallow.

“It was an amazing experience,” he said. “Standing out on that stage waiting for those four red chairs to turn my heart was banging like a drum.

“It is an incredible show, they treated us all like we were celebrities.”

Good luck Johnny.
