"The Voice" semifinalist Josh Gallagher had the look, way back when

Written by Maria Sciullo on .

Fans of Josh Gallagher on "The Voice" have come to expect a certain sartorial image each Monday.

For starters, there's the black baseball cap (which now has its own Twitter account, btw). He sang one week without it, but come on, the hat is part of the image. Cresson, Pennsylvania's Gallagher might be country, but he isn't cowboy hat.

Then there is the vest, the button down shirt. His mother, Cathy Gallagher, recalled that when her son was 10, the kids in a local youth program put on a show for the parents.

"He wore a little vest and a button-down shirt... just like the one he wears now," she said. "He sang the Justin Timberlake part in 'Bye Bye Bye.'"

There's more to Gallagher's image than meets the eye, however. His father, Dan Gallagher, only half-joked that father, son and mother are all a bit superstitious. That's one of the reason Dad hasn't attended any of the live shows; if Josh is doing fine with his being back in Western Pennsylvania, let's not jinx it.

Before attending each show, Mrs. Gallagher slips a little bag of Fritos into her purse as a good-luck charm. And the young nephews of Josh's newlywed wife, Lindsey, gave him their own present.

"They took a pair of black crew socks, and wrote 'Lucky' on one and 'Sock' on the other," Mrs. Gallagher said, laughing. "He's worn them on stage every week."

"The Voice" is averaging 12.2 million viewers for its Monday and Tuesday night shows on NBC. Eight singers remain; four advance to next week's finals.gallagherjoomla
