Rapping isn’t something we always see on talent competition shows but every once in awhile a rapper comes along and completely blows the coaches away. Theodor competed on the German version of The Voice Kids and his Blind Audition was full of passion. It ended with an epic rap battle with the coaches that you absolutely need to see.
Theodor Got Challenged To A Rap Battle By Mark Forster On ‘The Voice Kids’
Theodor was really vibing with the crowd during his Blind Audition rapping to “Scotty Beam Mich Hoch.” Immediately the coaches realized it was not going to be a traditional singing audition. Each of them looked mind blown as Theodor put on one epic performance. Finally, all four of them turned their chairs and joined in and were all singing along. You know a performance is good when the performer is out of breath afterwards.
While the 13 year old caught his breath, the coaches praised the fact that he completely remastered the song and made it his own. They appreciated his self-confidence and his ability to make the performance feel like one big party. Coach Mark Forster joined Theodor up on stage because he wanted to see how he would fare in a rap battle.
Theodor kicked it off with the first verse with a fun original rap. Mark took the next verse and had a little help from the crowd. Mark made a valiant effort but the other coaches felt like they could do a better job. The BossHoss, a pair of German bandmates who were coaching the season together then went up on the stage to rap. They did a pretty decent job and had the crowd on their side.
After all of the excitement from the rap battle, Theodor had a difficult decision to make between all four coaches. He ultimately chose to be on Team Mark. During The Battles, he was put head to head against Evin and Leon singing “Tausend Tattoo.” He was actually chosen as the winner of the matchup.
During the Sing-Offs, Theodor once again performed his energetic rendition of “Scotty Beam Mich Hoch.” He was not chosen by Mark to move on to the next round of the competition on The Voice Kids.
Where Is He Now?
After appearing on The Voice Kids, Theodor had continued on in his pursuit of becoming a world renowned rapper. He goes by the name Big Buddha and has covered songs by Marteria, Fanta4, Mark Forster, Fettes Brot, Dendemann, Käptn Peng and others.
The rapper also has a Youtube channel where he posts original raps and encouraged fans to check him out on all streaming platforms. His first single called “CAPS” is out right now.
He also gave a sneak peek of another one of his songs on Instagram that was dedicated to his fellow The Voice Kids contestant Grace Mertens who sadly passed away at the age of 16 last month.
