‘Six-Octave Man’ Shows Off Seemingly Impossible Range on ‘The World’s Best’

The World's Best TV ShowDimash Kudaibergen Leaves Everyone Breathless

Week two of CBS’s new worldwide talent competition show, The World’s Best, introduced us to a man called “The Six-Octave Man.”  Twenty-five-year-old Dimash Kudaibergen from Kazakhstan made his American debut and wowed everyone with his superb voice and astonishing range.

While Dimash obviously has a gift, he has worked very hard to perfect it.  He began taking piano and vocal lessons at just five years of age, and he has since graduated from K. Zhubanov University in Aktobe and Kazakh National University of Arts in Astana where he has been trained in both classical and contemporary music.  Now, he’s completing his Masters in Composing as well.

The Six Octave ManNot only does Dimash have years of professional music education, he also can speak numerous languages.  He has performed songs in twelve different languages, including Mandarin, English, French, Ukrainian, Italian, Turkey, Serbian, German, and Spanish.  Are you impressed yet? If not, watch Dimash’s audition, and you soon will be.

In his introduction package, Dimash told the camera, “I’ve been performing music for the past twenty years…When I got older, I got a deeper voice, but my high-pitched voice stayed with me. So now I have a very big vocal range.”  He’s just being modest.  His “very big vocal range” covers an astounding six octaves!

As Dimash’s audition began, he stood confidently on the stage as the lights reflected off his red sequined jacket.  He tenderly begins to sing in a hushed tone, as everyone listens in anticipation.  Each range he sings seems to be better than the last, and he flawlessly delivers each note.

The crowd erupts in applause when Dimash hits the climax of the song.  Flames leap up from areas around the stage as well as from the top of the grand piano accompanying him.  The visual performance with the lights and fire complimented his vocal dynamics perfectly.  This powerful, flawless performance earned Dimash perfect 50s from the celebrity judge’s panel, and a 98 out of 100 score from the world’s judges.

Celebrity judge Drew Barrymore said it best, “If I closed my eyes, I would’ve thought there were at least eight to ten people singing…One minute you’re Queen, and the next minute you’re Pavarotti, and I’m like, how is this all happening out of one person?”
