Let me just start off by saying that I do not watch The voice anymore and it was out of pure luck that I happened to watch it tonight when I heard this mans beautiful voice on tv speakers. Holy Moly, I have never watched a live performance on any “talent competition” that I thoroughly enjoyed this much. He has all the makings to be the new up and coming star and I AM SHOCKED that Pharrell passed him up but am so glad that Gwen stole him. I truly believe that she will win the show because of Ricky Manning. GO team Gwen!
