NOT many men can get pop superstar Kylie Minogue dancing – let alone like a chicken.

But that was exactly what Southampton musician Si Genaro did.

The 42-year-old former driver made a big impression with judges on BBC talent show The Voice on Saturday night, but narrowly missed out on progressing to the next round.

The singer, beatboxer and harmonica player caught the Australian star’s attention by kicking off his blind audition – where judges sit with their back to contestants – with a rendition of the song Man Down Under.

But his second song Chicken Train really struck her and fellow judge will.i.am up and flapping their arms like fowls after he told the panel: “I live up a tree and I chase squirrels.”

Kylie called his performance “kind of amazing” but it was not enough to put him through to the next round.
