A chalkboard caricature artist on “Switzerland’s Got Talent” kept the judges’ attention at first, but they soon lost interest. They hit the red button one by one. Then, when all seemed lost, she turned her chalkboard upside down, blew a plume of chalk dust, and … voilá!
Corinne Sutter from Switzerland is a talented artist in the field of caricature portraits. As part of her repertoire in the competition, she seemed to start a portrait of Judge Gilbert Gress (as if he weren’t enough of a character to begin with!). But time is of the essence in this talent competition, and each judge lost their patience in turn—four red “X’s” lit up, and four buzzers rang.
But, for some reason, that didn’t stop her. She started adding black paint over the top of her chalk drawing to the bewilderment of all. Then, it happened. With a smirk on her face, suddenly, she flipped the board upside down, and, with an explosion of white dust, a hidden portrait of Judge Bligg appeared!
All were flabbergasted by Corinne’s chalkboard skills and even more so by her mind-blowing surprise! She won the admiration of the judges, and the audience roared with appreciation.
Despite the four “X’s,” it was her showmanship and that surprise ending that won her the day! Corinne Sutter got the green light from three of the four judges and moved triumphantly on to the next round.
Are you ready for a little bit of magic?
