Anyone who sings an Adele song has a tall task in front of them, but one teenager knocked it out of the park and turned some heads…and chairs.
Adele, who has a magnificent and distinctive voice, has produced several iconic and beloved songs. Her ability to hit high notes is not matched by very many people in music today. However, Toby, a 13-year-old sang Adele’s “Easy On Me” and won over most of the judges in a matter of seconds on a German talent show.
Toby appeared on The Voice Kids, a German talent show for children between 8 and 14 years of age, according to Google translate. The young man gets only seconds into his song when the first judge turns his chair around for Toby.
Seconds later, a pair of judges, acting as one, hit their button to face Toby as he belts out the Adele hit. Less than a minute into the clip, the third judge has turned their chair.
Toby is knocking his performance out of the park! Anyone who watches the clip will see that the young man grows more confident as he continues singing.
At approximately the 1:15-minute mark, Toby, who has performed amazingly, turned it up another notch. He lets loose, reaches back and hits those high notes. Impressive!
Right before the young man’s song ends, the fourth and final judge flips her chair around to face Toby.
Not only do the judges love Toby’s rendition of the Adele hit, but the audience adores the performance also. They clap, cheer and give the teenager a standing ovation.
The judges shower the young man with praise for his marvelous performance as they try to woo him to their team, according to YouTube subtitles. However, when it came time for Toby to select his coach, he went with the one who turned his chair for him just seconds into his audition.
