People all over the world were enamored by Vincent’s audition. “The most INCREDIBLE audition I have ever seen on any of these shows.. this guy is a musical prodigy. The melody, key changes, grunts, yodels, tongue tricks, piano playing, all whilst practically blind…. WOW” wrote one person in the YouTube comments. “This man makes me watch his performance over and over again. I love his version” said another comment.
In the Battles, he went head to head against Guylaine. They performed “Love Me, Please Love Me” by Michel Polnareff and Vincent was declared the winner. In the next round Épreuves Ultimes, Vincent performed “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey.
