The Voice: Howard Rose reveals where he got his moves from

In the first Battle Round of The Voice last night, contestant Howard Rose gave us a treat with his unusual dance moves.

The 27-year-old musician and music teacher from Melton Mowbray was paired with Team Tom team-mate Stephanie Webber to sing You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall & Oates. But as the two singers performed, Howard surprised everyone by proving that not only can he sing but he has the moves, too. Will and Ricky chuckled as they watched Howard dance across the stage, but we're not sure if they were laughing in a good way or a bad way… 

After the performance, the pair's coach Tom Jones decided that Howard had won the battle and chose to keep him in the competition. Stephanie, meanwhile, was sent home when none of the other coaches chose to "steal" her for their team.

After the show, Howard took to video-sharing website Vine to reveal that he inherited his dancing skills from his dad!

Needless to say, the sight of Howard's dancing dad caused a storm on Twitter.

@BBCTheVoiceUK @howardlordjohn Congratulations Howard and what a cool Dad you have ;-)
