‘The Voice Portugal’ Coach Auditions For The Show
For her blind audition, Aurea performed “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars. However, it wasn’t the usual coaches sitting in the big red chairs. This time, they’d been replaced by child lookalikes.
There was even a little version of Aurea herself sitting in the chair listening to the performance. The kids did a great job emulating their grown-up counterparts, and appeared to really be considering whether they liked the audition.
Meanwhile, the real coaches watched from backstage while Aurea performed, smiling excitedly as the kids prepared to turn around. It took them quite a while, but they all ended up turning at the same time toward the end of the song.
When Aurea saw who was sitting in the chairs, she smiled. After hitting the last note, she started laughing. The coaches backstage couldn’t contain their laughter over the prank either.
