#VoteforTonyLucca is only one of the many battle cries on Twitter for singer Tony Lucca on NBC’s “The Voice” and they keep on coming.
I have been on Twitter for a while, but not so much as I have the past few weeks. And that is because one of my teen crushes is rocking the reality TV show. I’ve been a Lucca fan since “The Mickey Mouse Club” (MMC) days in the early 1990s and have been following his career online. Now he is on national TV every week and I get so excited I have to share it with others. Thus, the Twittering begins.
There are so many other fans out there cheering on Tony Lucca, and we all seem to join in as a team to support and cheer him on. We re-tweet (RT) each other and create “Lucca-isms” (as some say) such as #HowyouLuccamenow? (reference to his song last week, more on that here). The #hashtag is meant to get a topic trending, but it is that and so much more. It has brought together Tony Lucca fans who have found a fun and creative way to root for the rocker. Also, it gives us a chance to bash coach Christina Aguilera (another former MMC-er) who has seemed to have a vendetta against Tony from the beginning. I think she is just jealous that Tony chose to be on Team Adam Levine and not Team Christina Aguilera, and has to get a little negativity in every time she critiques him.
So, I have to get back to Tweeting on my phone now (laptop and phone both side-by-side, gotta love technology) now as the show is not over yet. But Tony and Adam Levine just did an awesome duet of “Yesterday” that should make Paul McCartney proud. #HowyouLuccamenow? lol
UPDATE: Tony just made it “Harder to Breathe” with his Maroon 5 cover. Coach Adam Levine should be beaming! And congratulations to Tony for being a class act and ignoring Christina’s petty comments.
