Christina Aguilera Reunited With Mickey Mouse Club Buddy Tony Lucca

'The Voice' Discovers Ex-Mousketeer

A few of our fave stars are ex-Mickey Mouse Clubbers, including Christina Aguilera, our dear, Britney Spears, and now… Tony Lucca. Who is Tony? He was on The Voice and Xtina didn’t recognize him. It’s been 2 decades but maybe now that he has been rediscovered, Tony might be the next big thing?

Tony came onto The Voice and did a cover of Ray LaMontagne’s “Trouble” getting high praise from Christina, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

“It does take a true talent to come along and jolt us out of our seats to push our buttons,” Aguilera told Lucca. “You have such a beautiful, silky quality to your tone and I appreciate you for making us all push our buttons.”

At the time, Xtina didn’t know that Tony actually appeared on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club with her and Britney back in the early ’90s. She ran backstage and was so excited to be reunited with her Mousketeer buddy.

“Britney [Spears] had the biggest crush on you,” Aguilera revealed. “She’d talk about you all the time — and she wouldn’t mind me saying that. Back together on TV! Hello? Does it get better than that?”

Not only did Britney have a crush on him but he seriously sounds like Ray LaMontagne. Could this guy be the next big thing, following in the footsteps of his fellow Mouseketeers?

    Omg I remember him he dared Kerri Russell forever during the show!!

      He actually has a song called “True Story” that mentions his MMC days and dating Keri Russell, though it is a subtle reference.

    I think it would have been cool if Ray decided to join Xtina’s team and she fought to get him to the top! But I think now it would be pretty amazing if he was able to win this competition and rise to the top like his now famous peers from the mouseketeer days.

    I love Tony Lucca! He did a fabulous rendition of Trouble and I am so glad he is finally getting the recognition that he deserves. I will definitely be checking in to this season of the Voice and voting for Tony!

    He does have an amazing voice.

  5. i think it shows that MM Club was nothing to be toyed with – lots of those kids turned into amazing entertainers.
    he was amazing! it would have been cute to have him on team Christina.

    Team LUCCA!! He is an incredible artist – and such a great performer. I hope he does well this season!!

    O.M.G!!!! Tony Lucca! Literally screamed and leapt off the couch when I saw him on there. I LOVE that the world is going to get to see what an amazing talent he is on such a national stage. I’ve seen him in concert a number of times and he is so impressive. And since he usually plays small clubs, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him and can say him and his wife are absolute sweethearts. Definately Team Lucca all the way!

    Coolest thing, besides sounding like Ray, who is one of my favourite artists and vocalists… is that Xtina mentions that about Britney, it’s so sweet and funny reminiscing about their younger days.

    Clearly a big eff-you as well to the media who love to stir the non-existent Brit/Xtina rivalry.

  9. Loved him back then! I also spotted him when Joe Firstman opened for Jewel and Tony was his roadie or something. I can’t believe Christina didn’t remember him… not even when he said his name. Dumb. Oh well. Good luck to him!!
