5-Year-Old Rapper Blows The Judges Away And Will Leave Your Brain … [VIDEO]
One of the best things about the Got Talent franchise is that people of all ages can try out, so we get to see talented kids do their thing. That includes Osman Salijevic, a 5-year-old rapper who auditioned for Sweden’s Got Talent.
After his audition, Osman’s father shared his powerful story with the judges. One judge was so moved, she hit the Golden Buzzer. Check out Osman’s audition in the video below.
Osman Auditions For ‘Sweden’s Got Talent’
Before his audition, Osman explained that his father is a rapper as well. And how long has Osman been rapping? Four years — so pretty much his whole life. His dad Ahmet shared that Osman would calm down as a baby whenever he heard music.
Before he went on stage, Osman said he wasn’t nervous, and declared that he would be moving on to the next round, no question. “I only want to make him happy,” Ahmet said of his son. “If rapping makes him happy, then he should just do it.”
When Osman started rapping, the judges looked like they couldn’t believe what they were watching. The crowd went wild for him, and three of the judges gave him a standing ovation when he was done performing. The audience even started chanting his name.
“That was the best, the cutest … I’m completely blown away,” judge Bianca Ingrosso told Osman. The judges then invited Osman’s dad out on stage with him. “What a fantastic son you have!” judge Alexander Bard said.
Osman’s Dad Talks About His Health Problems
Ahmet revealed that Osman has had to have three heart surgeries, and spent a lot of time in hospitals. He said music helped Osman calm down “when he felt bad,” so they continued to pursue it.
“No words can describe the sorrow of seeing your son ill,” Ahmet said. He said that although he’s made some “bad choices” in life, he decided to change when Osman was born. When asked about Osman’s health, he shared that he’s “good now.”
Judge LaGaylia Frazier was so moved by Osman’s story and performance, she hit the Sweden’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer to send him straight to the finals. Then she ran on stage to hug Osman and pick him up.
Osman upped his game for the next round, performing with backup dancers and ending the performance sitting in a throne on stage. Check out the flashy performance in the video above.
