The young prodigy first made a name for himself when he won the South Africa's Got Talent reality show when he was 3 back in 2015.

Six-year-old DJ Arch Junior is taking on the global stage after his celebrated performance on America's Got Talent.

The young prodigy first made a name for himself when he won the South Africa's Got Talent reality show when he was three years old back in 2015.

DJ Arch Junior made his international debut competing alongside other winners of the reality show franchise from around the world and it's safe to say that he blew the judges away, in particular, Simon Cowell.

After the performance, Cowell said he has big plans for the young DJ.

The episode aired on Monday in the US. Viewers will have to vote for their favourite act to go through to the next round.

Old Twitter haters are eating their words

While South Africans have today rallied behind the star, back in 2015 some were sceptical about him winning the Mzansi version of the talent show, taking to Twitter to cast doubts about his skills.

Six acts competed for the grand title and the then-toddler walked away with R500 000 in prize money.

Skepticism over his son's ability incited the toddler's father to post an explanation on whether his decks had been plugged in.

On Instagram, he explained:

Normally when you use a computer and a controller you have 2 options when it comes to audio out, it is either you go with the computers audio out or the controllers audio out.
