10-Year-Old Drummer Johanne Astrid Wins ‘Denmark’s Got Talent’ By Jamming Led Zeppelin + Rage Against the Machine

10-year-old drumming prodigy Johanne Astrid Poulsen is the 2017 winner of Denmark’s Got Talent. She rocked her way from the auditions to the final round by jamming classic tracks like Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” and Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.”

Johanne’s audition came in the form of a medley, where she sent the Denmark’s Got Talent judges into a frenzy after launching into “Killing in the Name.” The young girl’s power and precision was definitely impressive, but it was her performance of “Whole Lotta Love” that proved she’s a serious force behind that kit.

The young drummer playing John Bonham’s parts truly shows the depth of her skill. Her work on the cymbals and toms excels far beyond her years, surely making drummers twice or three times her age obscenely jealous.

Johanne’s final song for Denmark’s Got Talent was “Bad Craziness” by Danish rock band D-A-D. She didn’t expect to win, according to TV2, but she did, taking home 250,000 Danish kroner (roughly $35,700). “I hope I will get to play a lot of other places or get in a real band. I have not really thought about it, but I just know I have to play drums when I grow up,” says Johanne Astrid.
