15-year-old boy with soprano voice amazes talent show judges

Among the people with bizarre talents who appeared on the first edition of the “Romania’s Got Talent” show on PRO TV Saturday night, the frail-looking Narcis Iustin Ianau seemed yet another competitor who could offer some comic relief. Nevertheless, the moment he started singing, the public was left speechless and Mihai Petre, one of the jury members, was extremely impressed. “You gave us a very pleasant shock. You sing beautifully!,” singer Andra, a jury member, said while giving him standing ovations. Another jury member, Andi Moisescu told him he had everything he needed to win the great prize, worth EUR 120,000. Narcis said he had never taken singing lessons and his was a natural, untrained talent. “My mother has been in Italy for a few years now, so she didn’t have much of a chance to hear me sing. She thought I couldn’t do much with this voice. I hope she will one day get to see me sing on a stage,” he said. Iustin discovered his talent as a child, while singing in the church choir but he was never encouraged by those close to him. The boy reminded many of those who watched the first edition of “Romania’s Got Talent” of Susan Boyle, the 2009 discovery of “Britain’s Got Talent”.

The show had a record rating: 4 million viewers.
