Move over, “Little Fatty”. China’s new singing sensation comes in the form of a farmer from Zhulou Village in Shandong Province by the name of Zhu Zhiwen (朱之文). Zhu became an instant celebrity after clips of his audition at a talent show on Shandong TV, “I’m a Big Star”, went viral on the internets. Like Susan Boyle, Zhu arrived on set poorly dressed, and had most people in the audience thinking he was just another nutcase. But they changed their minds as soon as he opened his mouth: Zhu’s rendition of the theme song of the movie drama “Romance of Three Kingdoms” had the audience up on their feet by the time he was done, and judges on the show were so shell-shocked by his voice that they had to make sure he wasn’t a shanzhai farmer putting on a lousy coat.
Watch the man that Chinese netizens are calling “Uncle Susan” after the jump:
