A British Jew is taking the world of reality TV by storm after dazzling the judges on the British version of the music contest show The Voice.

Moni Tivony wowed coaches Tom Jones, Danny O’Donoghue, Jessie J and on the BBC One talent contest with his own rendition of Bob Marley’s classic track No Woman no Cry.

The 32-year-old’s routine on Saturday saw all four coaches eager to offer him a place in their teams – but he picked as his mentor.

Moni, who was dubbed a ‘Jew-maican’ by the Black Eyed Peas member, said: “I just felt really privileged to get all four coaches turn. Not every person in the audition could get that chance to choose.”

Moni’s family is from Israel, and he told the Daily Star the day after his successful performance that growing up in England wasn’t always easy: “I used to be more religious in my younger days and I got bullied for being Jewish.”

Something tells us that with his new found stardom he won’t have to worry about the bullying ever again.

    Mind you, watching this video, why would anyone want to appear on such a totally moronic show?

    He’s not the first. Remember Matisyahu, now shorn of beard and pe’ot? Look up his excellent ‘Jerusalem’ on YouTube.
