Opera Singer Rocks Out to AC/DC’s ‘Highway to Hell’ on Spain’s Got Talent

Her melodious classical aria segued into “Highway to Hell”

Opera singer Cristina Ramos shocked the judges on Spain’s Got Talent when her melodious classical aria segued into a belting performance of “Highway to Hell.”

Ramos hit the stage dressed in a long black dress to begin the classical movement of her audition. About a minute in, she appeared to be confused when a guitar began playing over her symphonic backup. By the time she ripped her dress aside to reveal a rocker’s outfit, the audience and judges jumped to their feet to hear her lay into the AC/DC hit.

The judges were so impressed by the 37-year-old’s pipes that she was awarded a tap on the Golden Buzzer, meaning Ramos instantly moved on to the next round. Watch her performance above.
