Andrew Knight’s Big Opera Voice Earns Instant Chair Turn During Blind Audition

One young man’s stunning and operatic blind audition on The Voice earned him an instant turn from one of the program’s judges.

Everyone has different musical tastes and preferences. Some people enjoy their music with a little more twang and southern drawl than others. However, other people would rather listen to more up-tempo, energetic music such as electronic dance music. Still, others are into classic rock and the hair bands that were popular in music during the 1980s. 

While favorite songs and musical genres vary from person to person, most people can still recognize talent. Even if someone does not like rap music, it’s easy to appreciate another’s ability to effortlessly string together rhymes at a rapid pace. 

Opera is not a genre of music most people listen to or enjoy, but the studio audience and the judges still recognized Andrew Knight’s immense musical talent. In a clip posted on YouTube, the young man stepped on the stage and blew everyone away with his performance of Gioachino Rossini’s “Largo Al Factotum” on The Voice Australia. 

Seconds into Andrew’s audition, judge and singer Jason Derulo decides that he has heard enough and wants him on his team. Jason slams his button, turns his chair around and watches the rest of the audition completely mystified at the talent before him. 

Jason’s fellow judge, singer Rita Ora, is also impressed. As the clip shows, Rita reaches for her buzzer several times, nearly hitting it. Ultimately, before Andrew’s audition is over, she does turn her chair for the young opera singer. 

In addition to the judges, the studio audience is enthralled and thoroughly impressed. They clap along throughout the audition.

By the conclusion of Andrew’s performance, the audition and Rita give the young man a standing ovation.

What an outstanding display of talent!
