Neil Patrick Harris’ Prank Audition Hilariously Horrifies “The Voice” Judges.

“The Voice” is a competition meant to help talented singers make their dreams of stardom come true… at least, that’s how it works most of the time. Sometimes, though, there are other dreams… like the ones that involve pulling off an epic prank!

Actor Neil Patrick Harris once showed up on the show with the latter goal in mind. So how did it go? Well, one thing’s for sure: The celebrity judges didn’t have the slightest clue what hit them.

For his TV show “Best Time Ever,” Neil went “undercover” as Jurgen Vollmer, the host of “The Voice Austria.” To start, “Jurgen” engaged in a series of fake interviews with the real host and coaches of the American show.

The celebrity even went as far as to hire another actor to pretend to be a producer named Hans.

As Jurgen, Neil sought advice from Carson Daly, who suggested he try to make the celebrity judges “look good.”

His other interviews came across as hilariously awkward, which was completely intentional on the actor’s part. But that was only the beginning… Neil was about to take his prank to the next level.

After successfully fooling the judges with his phony question, Neil participated in a fake blind audition. His version of “And I’m Telling You” was hilarious, but it didn’t turn any chairs.

Throughout his cringe-worthy audition, the judges are visibly disturbed by the “performer’s” voice… but that all changed when he finally revealed his identity.
