Judges Are Confused When 8-Year-Old Asks For A Cup, Rise In Applause When She Sings With It

By dipper /

Eight-year-old Larissa looked a little peculiar walking on stage with a cup in her hand during her audition for Season 2 of “The Voice Kids,” where children from Germany show off their talents for a chance at superstardom.

The audience probably had no idea that she would end up completely stunning the judges with both her rhythmic and vocal talents.

Not only did Larissa surprise the audience with her talent, but also her song choice. She chose an American song “Cups” which is rare for a German TV show.

Cups is a version of the 1931 Carter Family song “When I’m Gone.” The song made its way into modern days after it was performed by Lulu and The Lampshades on YouTube in 2009.


It became super popular after Anna Kendrick performed it in the film Pitch Perfect in 2012. It’s also become a popular song for people to sing on YouTube a capella using cups to provide the percussion.

Larissa’s version is extra special, however.

She is filled with spunk and personality as she walked out on stage while the judges had their back turned. Larissa, who was the youngest contestant on the show that season, performed the song with the confidence of someone who has been singing professionally for years.
