Viktor Kiraly Releases ‘Way Back Home’ After Shocking Elimination on ‘The Voice’ (VIDEO)
Last night on The Voice, the Top 12 were revealed for Season 9. However, in a big results shocker, one of the presumed frontrunners for the win didn’t make the finals: Viktor Király, the Hungarian pop star who was looking to crossover to American audiences, was eliminated from the competition. When the voting results came in for Team Gwen, Braiden Sunshine and Jeffery Austin were voted in by America, while coach Gwen Stefani chose Korin Bukowski as her third team member.
In short, it was a very disappointing night for Viktor Király’s fans, but Viktor himself is remaining positive about his experience. In response to his surprising elimination, Viktor released his latest original song, “Way Back Home”, off of his current album, 3rd Dimension. The song was released a year ago, and the video Viktor uploaded is an acoustic rendition of the track. But it has special relevance now, in the wake of his elimination. Along with the video, he penned a touching “thank you” note to his fans for their support: “I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all again for helping me get one step closer to my dream. To me MUSIC is home. To me YOU are home.” This is a very good song, and I’ll be sad to see Viktor go. I hope he doesn’t give up on America, because he definitely has fans here. Watch the video and listen to “Way Back Home” below:
