Eight years ago, the American-born singer Viktor Király came to Hungary and auditioned for Megasztár (the Hungarian version of American Idol). The talented and very good-looking upstart won first place. Since then he’s dropped a steady string of hits in Hungary, and in 2012 and 2014 he competed at A Dal (and came so close to winning). Now, it’s time for something else.
Viktor has auditioned for the The Voice in America, and in doing so he’s gone from getting called “the American boy” in Hungary to being the Hungarian guy in America.
In his blind audition, the cutie performed Marvin Gaye’s soul classic “What’s Going On”, where he triumphed. All four celebrity judges – Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton – were impressed with what they heard and turned their chairs around.
While Gwen Stefani obviously had her eye on Viktor, he eventually chose to be part of Adam Levine’s team. The Maroon 5 frontman was the first to turn and said, “When I turned around, it was like “Oh, this dude wins!” I’m really curious as to what these two can make together. (Yes, I’m a massive fan of both of them, don’t judge me).
Team Wiwi are excited too and we wish Viktor loads of luck. With his talent and personality he has the chance to rule not just America, but the whole world! Fingers crossed for him!
