South Africa's 6-Year-Old DJ Arch Junior Got a Standing Ovation on 'America's Got Talent'
The 6-year-old South African DJ is the youngest DJ in the world.
DJ Arch Junior or AJ, real name Oratile Hlongwane, is a 6-year-old DJ who is currently blazing a fiery trail on the hit show America's Got Talent. His skills on the decks are unimaginable for anyone let alone a 6-year-old. From his win on the South African spin-off of the talent-search series, he's the musical prodigy currently capturing the hearts of Americans on the even bigger stage.
DJ Arch Junior completely wowed Judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, after an electric performance on the America's Got Talent (Champions) stage. As with the South African audience, he left Americans in genuine disbelief as he showed off his musical prowess on the decks.
Following the performance that had the audience all on their feet, including his own father, Cowell said to AJ:
"You and I need to be talking after this show because I got plans for you."
The young DJ shot to fame when he entered and went on to win South Africa's Got Talent back in 2015 at just three years old. South Africans were in awe that a kid who probably hadn't mastered tying his own shoelaces, displayed such musical mastery.
After messing around with his father's deck, AJ's father realized that the 3-year-old was actually aware of what he was doing and that he was gifted. Since his win, his father has invested his time and efforts to ensuring his son sees bigger and even better stages. And South Africans are so here for it.
