The musical legacy of the legendary Elvis Presley continues to reverberate across the world. While not every Elvis impersonator possesses his extraordinary talent, there are occasions where performances leave audiences utterly captivated. A remarkable instance unfolded on The Voice Kids Ukraine, where 13-year-old Yaroslav Karpuk delivered a rendition of “I Can’t Help Falling in Love” that mirrored Elvis’s voice so closely that both the audience and the judging panel were spellbound.
Yaroslav’s performance was so exceptional that within the first 15 seconds, a judge turned around in their chair, signaling his advancement to the next round. The boy’s family, taken aback by this unexpected turn of events, reveled in the joy of the moment. As the performance unfolded, each judge, one after another, turned around in appreciation. By the conclusion, all the judges had pivoted in approval. Following the song’s conclusion, it was time for Yaroslav to select a mentor in accordance with the competition’s rules. Opting for the judge who turned first, the boy set the course for his journey through the upcoming stages of the competition.
