13-Yr-Old Lets Huge Personality Shine In Sass-Filled “Voice” Audition.

Ciaran Heggarty’s mom, Leanne, says her son has always had a love for music. When he was little, he’d spend his free time watching musical performances instead of cartoons like other kids his age.

Still, it was really just “for a laugh” when Ciaran entered the Glasgow Regional Final of Open Mic UK contest at the tender age of 11. But when a vocal coach heard his voice, she immediately knew he was destined for greatness.

Now it seems that greatness is about to be achieved on “The Voice Kids UK.â€


His song of choice was “Sax”by Fleur East, and charisma practically oozes out of every pore throughout the performance.

Seriously, when was the last time you saw a 13 year old move with that kind of confidence? will.i.am turned his chair less than a minute into the song, and he was soon joined by both Pixie Lott and Dannie Jones, pretty much right after Ciaran hit this high note.


And if that’s not a subtle hint his vocal range (and that there’s certainly more where that came from) we don’t know what is.

Once his audition wrapped up, all three judges showered him with praise, calling him everything from “fierce” to “fearless,” and that the kind of adrenaline-fueled energy is exactly what they want to see in all their contestants. But Pixie’s review was, by far, the most flattering:

I feel like you’re just a really exciting performer, but I don’t want to change anything about you, as a person, as an artist, because you already know who you are already, and I want you to inspire loads of other boys and girls to do the same, get out there and just own it, and that’s what I love about you.

So, there’s just one question left, and it’s a hard one: Which team will he join?
