In the clip, del Río hit all the high notes while the judges all sat in awe.

Ultimately, del Río ended up choosing Spanish singer Melendi as his coach.

After making it to the next round, del Río celebrated with his family who watched from the sidelines.

The youngster, who also belted out “Back in Black” in the semifinals, then sang Europe’s smash hit “The Final Countdown” in the finals. However, it unfortunately wasn’t enough to win the competition.

del Río’s coach, Melendi, ended up having to choose between the young rocker and 11-year-old Levi Díaz, who belted out “Never Enough” from “The Greatest Showman”.

Melendi chose Díaz, who went on to win.
