This kid stole the spotlight on The Voice SA last night

Cape Town - In this week’s penultimate episode of the Blind Auditions of The Voice SA, the coaches found themselves turning for some extra-special, surprising talent, leaving them with minimal spots remaining in their teams.

On Sunday night, nine diversely different contenders were good enough to warrant the turning of the coaches’ iconic red chairs, but it was the 18-year-old Jono Johansen from Durban who stole the spotlight.

Jono - who has just completed matric at Kearnsey College and is a double world champ chorister – ended the show on a high note as all four of the coaches were waxing lyrical about his performance of Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down. His "control" and "special gift" inspired the potential future mentors to come up with elaborate pitches to win his favour.

Jono ultimately chose songstress Lira.

Watch his audition here:

Once the Blind Auditions come to an end next week, the coaches will have to pair up the talent in each of their teams of 14 to sing against each other in a series of sudden death duets, where each coach can only save one of the two performers from each performance.
