Mike Ward paid tribute to Keith Whitley's classic "Don't Close Your Eyes" in an unexpected performance on The Voice UK back in 2013.

The Voice contestant shocked judges with his rapper-like style once they hit the big red button to reveal the face behind the country sounding voice. "He's not what you'd expect!" shouts British pop-star Jessie J. 

Mike Ward's strong country vocals paired with his choice of heart-melting melody makes for an interesting combination when compared with his seemingly bad-boy looks. 

The song peaked at No.1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles and No.2 on the Canadian RPM Country Chart. The song has also been covered by country legend Alan Jackson as well as Kellie Pickler. 

The contestant definitely confirms what your mother always told you about not judging a book by its cover.  

Watch the full performance below and prepare to be pleasantly surprised!
