CHELSEA star Billy Gilmour showed he can perform on and off the pitch as he blasted out karaoke in Norwich at the weekend.
The Scottish midfielder has joined the Canaries on a season-long loan and has already started making an impression on the club’s fans.

Gimour, 20, gave the watching crowd a rendition of Train’s ‘Drops of Jupiter’ at the Oak Bar and Terrace in Thorpe St Andrew.
He stepped up to the mic on his own and used his phone to check the lyrics every now and then.
The youngster’s tone was far from perfect but the crowd loved it and rightfully applauded his effort.
Upon joining the Canaries, Gilmour said: “I’m very excited to be here. I can’t wait for the season ahead.
“I’ve been looking forward to coming here, playing as much as possible and helping Norwich City compete in the Premier League.
“I spoke to the head coach. He called me and we had a nice talk about how he wants to play and how he sees me fitting in.
“Everything he said was what I want to do on the pitch, get the ball down and play nice football. He spoke really highly of his team and I wanted to come join here and help.
“There are very exciting times ahead, coming in for pre-season and seeing all the lads. Let’s get to it.”
Gilmour has already made an impression on the pitch as he wowed in the Canaries’ friendly against King’s Lynn Town on Friday July 16.
But Farke warned fans not to ‘put too much pressure’ on the young Scot.
The German said: “Gilmour is a great character, he only arrived on Thursday after some more days off for the Euros.
“We did some tests and his first training session was with the team on Friday morning.
“I wouldn’t do that with a 37-year-old but with a young player you can throw them into the cold water. He proved he could swim.
“We are happy to have him but we have to be realistic. We don’t want to praise him too much or put too much pressure on him.”
