Abilio 'Abs' Joao
Abs, also known as Brokenpen, exploded onto the stage with his version of Nao’s ‘I Can’, complete with his own twist - some original Spanish and Portuguese verses. It was an intense pitch from will.i.am and Anne-Marie, but Abs picked the Black Eyed Peas legend as his Coach.
Abs had a serious challenge on his hands when he went up against fellow rapper and writer Benjamin Haycock in the Battles. Not only that but they had the small matter of performing their Coach’s track! But Abs’s awesome twist on ‘Hall Of Fame’ by The Script and will.i.am did the trick to get him to the Semi-Finals!
Brokenpen brought the party to the Semi-Finals with Daddy Yankee featuring Snow’s ‘Con Calma’. The perfect song choice to blend a dose of feel good with his own lyrical talents, making us one very happy audience, and Will one very happy Coach!
