‘Canada’s Got Talent’ Teases Audition from Violinist Sebastien Savard
Ahead of the premiere later this month, Canada’s Got Talent released a video teasing an audition from violinist Sebastien Savard. It looks like this contestant’s performance will have the judges in awe. Whether that’s a good or bad thing we’ll have to wait and see.
‘Canada’s Got Talent’ Previews Sebastien Savard
In the clip released by CGT, contestant Sebastien Savard walks out on stage wearing scrubs and carrying a violin. He tells the judges that he’s from Quebec and explains that his day job is as a patient attendant.
Behind the scenes, Sebastien shares that he started playing the violin when he was 6 years old. His mother opened a music school and shared her love of music with her children. Sebastien worked as a traveling musician for 12 years before he started working with seniors.
Judge Howie Mandel wishes Sebastien luck, but we don’t get to see his performance. However, the show gives us a preview of the judges’ shocked reactions. Trish Stratus asks, “What?” Meanwhile, host Lindsay Ell looks at the camera and asks, “What is happening right now?”
Sebastien has a YouTube channel where he has posted violin videos. In one upload, he plays 16 instruments in two minutes. Maybe this is the act that had the judges so amazed?
‘CGT’ Premieres March 22
Canada’s Got Talent, which was previously canceled in 2012, will return on Tuesday, March 22 on Citytv at 8/7c for a comeback season. Performances were filmed at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
The judges for CGT include America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel, comedian Lilly Singh, wrestler Trish Stratus, and rapper Kardinal Offishall. The show will be hosted by country singer Lindsay Ell, who recently released a song with American Idol winner Chayce Beckham.
We can’t wait to see even more CGT auditions this season as the judges decide which acts should move on for a chance to become the champion and win the $150,000 prize.
