The Voice album, Jacquie Roar, showed off her impressive vocals while hanging out with American Idol Season 22 contestant, Noah Peters, who is also known as The Singing Barber on social media.

The songstress won over a slew of new fans when she appeared on Season 24 of the singing competition. During her time on the show, she was under the guidance of Team Gwen Stefani and later Team Reba, which ultimately led her to earn the fourth-place slot. 

Putting Her Talent On Display In Peters’ Famed Barber Chair

Since then, Roar has continued to find new ways to showcase her powerhouse abilities, including sitting in the chair of the viral barber from Benton, Tenn. Peters has had many talented artists let their vocals shine from within his workspace, and Roar was the most recent to deliver a spontaneous performance of Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away.”

Roar belted out the lyrics of the 2012 fan-favorite, pouring her own set of emotions into the hard-hitting narrative. Throughout her entire delivery, Peters was clearly in awe of the talent exploding right in front of him. 

“There’s not enough rain in Oklahoma/ To wash the sins out of that house/ There’s not enough wind in Oklahoma/ To rip the nails out of the past/ Shatter every window ’til it’s all blown away/ Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away/ ‘Til there’s nothing left standing/ Nothing left of yesterday/ Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away, blown away, blown away,” she sings.

Roar explained in her caption that she holds a close connection to this song, which made it even more special for her to get to sing it in Peters’ famed barber chair. 

“I connect to this song on many levels. It’s just such a beautiful way to express childhood trauma so thank you for singing it @carrieunderwood and thank you @theesingingbarber for letting me warm your chair 🫶🏻”

In another collaborative video, the Oregon native took on a more smooth and sultry narrative with Alannah Myles’ “Black Velvet.”

Who Is Noah Peters?

Peters started gaining traction online when he began posting videos of himself singing while cutting people’s hair. He quickly won over users with covers of songs like Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl Shake It For Me,” Elvie Shane’s “My Boy,” Brooks & Dunn’s “Neon Moon” and more. 

The Tennessee native brought his talent into the American Idol audition room earlier this year and won over the judges with his delivery of Rascal Flatts hit “I Won’t Let Go.” At first, he performed just with the accompaniment of a guitar player, but then to his surprise he was given the chance to recreate the setting of his online videos when a barber chair was wheeled on set.

Fellow Idol Alum Colin Stough Made A Surprise Appearance

Luckily, host Ryan Seacrest was able to complete the vision by bringing in Idol finalist, Colin Stough, to act as the customer. Together, they performed a duet of “Broken Halos” by Chris Stapleton while Peters trimmed up Stough’s long hair. 

 Ultimately, Noah Peters earned a “yes” from all three judges, securing his dream of a golden ticket to Hollywood. 

Although he is no longer a contestant on the singing competition show, Peters has continued to post videos in his barber chair, and today, he revealed he has “big news coming.”
