Jesús del Río, a seven-year-old boy, conjured the spirit of the late Bon Scott during a performance of AC/DC’s perennial hit ‘Highway To Hell’ during an episode of The Voice Kids in Spain.

Within seconds of his performance, three judges hit their chairs to turn around. A fourth coach, who was unable to pick a new singer for his team, physically attempted to turn the chair around. Their reaction was ecstatic — it’s hard to be a TV singing competition sceptic when The Voice Spain is so joy-inducing. Check out the performance below.
