Nicholas David celebrates success at Mall of America Thursday


Minnesota native Nicholas David was saved by America during an elimination round on NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night. The musician from Eagan received enough votes to compete with the remaining four contestants.

In an interview with KARE 11 after the show, David says he was extremely nervous awaiting his fate.

"The energy in there was so intense. My heart was practically coming out of my chest," David said. He attributes his succes to his family that's been helping him stay grounded throughout the competition.

David will make an appearance at the Mall of America Thursday. He will take The Patio stage in Nickelodeon Universe at 11 a.m.

On Monday night, the local singer was described as the "Pride of Eagan, Minnesota" by host Carson Daly during an introduction to David's performance of Earth, Wind & Fire's "September," picked by judge CeeLo Green:

The more impressive performance was David's own rendition of "Over the Rainbow" to close the show:

The results could have gone either way, according to reviewers keeping tabs on the show.

Independent news organization HULIQ said David's take on the academy-award winning ballad written for The Wizard of Oz "stunned the world" and might have put him over the top in the competition.

Another reviewer agreed that David's "soul is unparalleled" and "ripped open the roof on his second song," but doubted he'd win the competition.

A poll by Digital Spy showed David as the least likely to make the final four.

The last four singers will compete Monday at 7 p.m. on NBC.
