WATCH | ‘It’s crazy’ — SA muso Stefan Benz on teaching Afrikaans to Lionel Richie and Katy Perry

Stefan Benz, a 16-year-old aspiring musician, made sure to bring his South African flavour when he auditioned for American Idol, teaching the show’s judges his home language of Afrikaans. 

Benz, from Centurion in Pretoria, recently auditioned for the popular TV singing competition in California and impressed the judges. 

The judging panel, consisting of legendary musician Lionel Richie, singer/songwriter Katy Perry and country singer Luke Bryan were left dazzled by Benz’s rendition of Brian McKnight’s One Last Cry.

The judges asked him how to say “you are going to Hollywood” in Afrikaans, and so began the language lesson.  

“Jy gaan Hollywood toe” Bryan and Perry shouted as they celebrated the young musician and pushed him through to the next round of the show.
