He’s done it before! Footage emerges of The Voice’s Andy Dexterity signing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody on stage BEFORE the battle rounds – despite saying it was ‘outside his comfort zone’

The Voice coach Boy George chose Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for Andy Dexterity and Caleb Jago-Ward, 26, to sing during the battles on Sunday night’s episode. 

And while fans on Twitter said the performance gave them ‘chills’, one found it hard to believe Boy George ‘randomly’ chose the song, alluding to the show being rigged.

Footage surfaced of Andy, 35, having already performed the exact same song on stage at a Sydney event back in June, 2017.

Earlier on Sunday night’s episode, coach Boy George told Andy and Caleb that he was giving them ‘a big pair of rock royalty shoes’ to step into.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen,’ the 59-year-old continued with a laugh.

‘Such a difficult song to sing, I would never sing this song, ever,’ Boy George admitted. ‘I have heard it sung well by a couple of people, but really, you’ve got to be brave enough to kind of go, “You know, I’m going to give it everything I’ve got”.’

On the show, Andy did not reveal that he had already performed the song on stage.

Instead, he mentioned that he felt ‘outside his comfort zone’ belting out lyrics alongside the talented Caleb.
