Whatever you’re expecting Akira’s audition to be when you start watching it, think again. It only gets weirder and more unexpected as time goes on, so buckle up and get ready.

Akira Auditions For ‘Australia’s Got Talent’

Akira started his Australia’s Got Talent audition in traditional Japanese garb, swinging a sword and doing a handstand. The judges and audience seemed impressed, as they applauded the performance.

Than Akira shocked everyone by stripping down to a pair of gold underwear while “Let Me Take a Selfie” played. Akira even had kiss marks on his stomach and backside. He proceeded to twerk for the judges, who broke down in laughter. After that, he danced to “Uptown Funk.”

But that wasn’t even the weirdest part of the audition. After a fart noise rang out, Akira put on another costume. It involved a puffer vest worn like pants, and a mask that looked like a frog’s head. He danced around to “Gangnam Style” for a while before putting on a skirt that revealed the message, “I Love Australia.”

What Did The Judges Think Of Akira’s Audition?

The judges were a mixture of confused and entertained throughout the performance. “What is happening?!” Nicole Scherzinger wondered at one point, before joining in on the “Gangnam Style” dance.

“I just arrived from L.A., guys,” she said when it was over. “And this country’s a little sick.” Meanwhile, Shane Jacobson thanked Akira for providing “entertainment” and “laughter.”

“I think I just hallucinated, but I liked it?” Lucy Durack said. “That was super fun, but I have no idea what just happened.” Manu Fieldel added that he loved the fart jokes.

Some viewers at home found the performance offensive, calling it “dreadful television” and pointing out that it’s supposed to be a family show. However, all four judges voted “yes” to sending Akira through. He made it to the semifinals. Akira also appeared on Spain’s Got Talent (above) and Bulgaria’s Got Talent.
