DJ Arch Jnr beats out contestants at South Africa’s Got Talent.

A South African toddler is redefining the term “precocious youngster” having won South Africa’s Got Talent at only 3 years old.

The adorable boy, who was carried onto the stage by his father Glenn in each episode, beat impressive teenage classical singer/ventriloquist Isabella Jane and hip-hop crew Street Stylers to win the ZAR500,00 (NZ$53,669) first prize. Jane looked crestfallen at the result.

A jury member commented:

“For a 3-year-old I’m blown away, never mind him winning the competition, the fact that he stood on stage, he did a set and finished it and clicked stop. I don’t know if any other 3-year-old would stand there and do that without their parents [doing it for him].”
