When it comes to singing competitions, the professionals always have higher standards for contestants than the general public does.
That’s why, to the average Joe, it can often seem as if the judges are overly critical of already great singers. But every once in a while, someone comes along who is so incredibly gifted they leave the celebrity judges just as awestruck as the audience. Germany’s “The Voice Kids” saw two such individuals grace their stage earlier this year.
Sisters Mimi and Josefin are bursting with raw, unbelievable talent. For their blind audition, they performed a piano-led arrangement of Radiohead’s “Creep.” Not only did the young girls sing in perfect English, but they put a gorgeously haunting spin on the ’90s classic that’s making millions drop their jaws. Honestly, it might be even better than the original.
Just seconds in, judges Lena Mayer-Landrut and Stefanie Kloß were turning their chairs, both with notably shocked looks on their faces. They just couldn’t believe what they were hearing. It was that good.
The BossHoss duo, comprised of Boss Burns and Hoss Power, along with Mark Forster felt the same. Moments later, they all turned their chairs as well, watching and marveling at what the sisters’ voices were producing.
Even when Mimi and Josefin finished the song, the judges were at a loss for words. The soaring harmonies, the power, the drama — it was all too much to take in.
So after receiving a standing ovation, the girls were asked for an encore performance, which they were more than happy to give.
Lena pretended to swoon the second time around, and honestly, it wasn’t much of an exaggeration.
Obviously, all the judges fought over who the phenomenal duo should pick as their coach. Ultimately, the sisters joined the BossHoss team, leaving the others heartbroken. We can understand their pain!
There are so many ways to describe how amazing Mimi and Josefin are, but we’ll just say this: Without a doubt, these two are going places! And that’s an understatement. We wouldn’t be surprised at all if they won the entire competition.
These vocal prodigies are really something you have to experience for yourself. Listen to their chill-inducing audition in the video below and share their talent with the world.
