Are Britain’s Got Talent winners Collabro about to go their separate ways? We hope not, but are we supposed to think when gorgeous Collabro star Richard Hadfield posts a video of himself performing a swing version of a Michael Jackson track online.
The former rugby stud, who found fame on the ITV talent show, posted the clip of The Way You Me Feel this morning and had fans speculating about the future of the megaselling band, who have just embarked on their sell out UK tour!
To find out what exactly is going on, we hooked up with the handsome star…
So Richard, you’ve gone all Michael Buble on us! Are you going solo?
I’m not! This is just something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I really enjoy this genre of music and am just currently having fun putting videos together and playing around with a few covers.
Please tell us it’s not the end of Collabro…
Oh God, no, it is far from over. We have our opening night tonight of our second almost sold out UK tour. We have lots of international talks too, we’ve just won a gold disc in Japan for best International new comer alongside Sam Smith, so the future is looking great for us!
What have the boys said about the track?
The boys are completely supportive! We all enjoy singing together as a group and on our own. If fact, they’ve all said they’re excited for me.
Well, we think you sound ace. What are you going to treat us to next?
I want to hear what people think! I want to hear suggestions on my YouTube channel, FB page and Twitter. Can’t wait to make some more music surprises. People think they know these songs but they will have to have a bit of a rethink when listening to my versions.
We’ve seen you working up a sweat in the gym. How’s that going?
Indeed I have. Great progress so far. Eating clean on the road isn’t easy though! So many Burger Kings!
