Septimus Prime gave a great audition in tonight’s episode of The Voice that saw him through to the second round – but what he’ll really be remembered for is his name.
The auditionee acknowledged that his name conjured up thoughts of Transformers before he went in to begin his performance.
Although he’s already trying to put a stop to too many jokes about it.
And he did a lovely version of Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself that bagged him a place on Team Tom.
Septimus Prime what a name! #thevoiceuk— Sandra James (@sandra_565) February 11, 2017
The name didn’t sit well with everyone.
He's got a soulful voice even if Septimus sounds like a nasty STD #thevoiceuk— Debbie Smith 🏴 (@debsy91) February 11, 2017
Others wondered about his siblings.
#theVoiceUK I so wanted Septimus Prime's brother to be called Amazon.— Ken Barlow (@I_am_KenBarlow) February 11, 2017
The reasoning behind the name baffled people.
August ➡ Augustus
September ➡"Septimus" ...? Yes it makes sense 😶 #theVoiceUK— Jo. (@yeahjooo) February 11, 2017
Still, it was a great excuse to post some Transformers tweets.
Septimus Prime, I'm pretty sure the new Transformers movie isn't out till march 😂😂 @EssexMagazine #thevoiceuk pic.twitter.com/YroZgehQGQ— Brad Ø’Neill - I LIKE IT 31.05.19 (@iambradoneill) February 11, 2017
At least people will remember his name when it comes to voting.
