REALITY show The Voice hit television screens across the nation last night and many Tasmanian viewers were awaiting an appearance by Launceston talent Matthew Garwood.
The tattooed 24-year-old, who is well known in the state's theatre scene, is one of 130 from 10,000 entries nationwide to make it through to the blind auditions.
The blind auditions began last night and will continue to be aired throughout the next few weeks.
It is in these episodes where each artist sweats on at least one of the four coaches spinning their seat and offering a place on their team for a chance to go on to the battle rounds.
From the 130 who audition, only 56 will be lucky enough to go into the battle rounds.
The coaches are Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am, Kylie Minogue, Ricky Martin and Joel Madden.
Garwood began his theatre journey at Launceston College when he starred as Troy Bolton in the school's High School Musical production.
His more recent Launceston theatre roles include Raoul in Encore's Phantom of the Opera, Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and Marius in Les Miserables.
The talented performer spent last year as one of the five actors at Dracula's cabaret dinner show in Melbourne.
The Voice management would not reveal in which episode Garwood will appear.
