Patrick Thomson reflects on The Voice

It has been a 10 month journey full of music, moving chairs and secrets.

"Yeah that was the biggest thing I'm not a good liar and I don't like doing it. My dad always said if you don't lie you don't have to remember what you said woo I learned what that meant real quick," explains Patrick Thomson.

Because up until the live shows what we see was taped weeks, even months ago.

"It's been a crazy ride sneaking out of my house so the neighbors can't see me leave with my luggage ah they know who I'm talking about," Thomson goes on to say.

Of course, over the last several weeks Patrick Thomson won over audiences with his voice, his hair and his laugh and these days he can't go anywhere without being recognized.

"It's awesome though I love it, I really do. Gas stations and Wal-Mart and Walgreens," Thomson adds.

Unless he's armed with a rubber band.

"Like this pull it all up no one knows who I am," he says putting up his hair.

That is until they hear that laugh, but standing on that stage waiting for Shakira to decide who was going home was no laughing matter.

"They tell you sit there and look like you have the jitters we do! You don't have to worry about it looking real we do," Thomson points out.

Thankfully he hasn't lost his sense of humor. He was able to get one on one instruction from both Adam and Shakira.

"They're awesome man, they really are. Adam really focused on my voice and where that needs to be going, how to strengthen it and then I got stolen by Shakira and she was talking about performance. She said you can sing, you don't have to convince me of that she said you need to learn how to perform and deliver a song and get out from behind that guitar and that microphone," Thomson explains.

He's now taking that and everything else he learned on The Voice and is approaching his music with more passion than ever before. So you might not see him any more on The Voice, but we definitely haven't seen or heard the last of Patrick Thomson.

"Yeah I'm back in it, I really am, many it's like a second chance at life. I mean I can't even explain it," Thomson says.
