The youngest club DJ in the world, DJ Arch Jnr is making South Africa proud on the America’s Got Talent stage!
Oratilwe AJ Hlongwane, who was crowned the winner of SA’s Got Talent in 2015, was selected as one of 25 acts to appear on America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
The show features winners, finalists and other successful contestants from previous seasons of America’s Got Talent alongside acts from other Got Talent franchises worldwide.
The episode in which DJ Arch competes aired on Monday in the US, and now viewers will have to vote for their favourite act to go through to the next round.
As part of his set, DJ Arch Jnr played a mix of Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It and Cardi B’s verse on Finesse; and his energetic performance had all the judges on their feet.
When his set was over, Mel B exclaimed: “I didn’t want him to stop,” and Terry Crews said: “That’s incredible!”
All four judges gave the young DJ a standing ovation and Simon Cowell added in his comments: “You and I need to be talking after the show, cause I have some plans for you. Trust me! I think you are a total, total little star and I absolutely love you.”
After the show aired, local celebrities including Bonang Matheba and DJ Black Coffee took to social media to wish the 6-year-old good luck in the competition.
