Circa 2009, the highest honor available to a weird local news video was a remix by the Gregory Bros., the nerdy internet band famous for Auto-Tuning the 2008 presidential debates. But blatant, T-Pain-style Auto-Tune has long since gone out of fashion, and it's been a while since we've had an Antoine Dodson or a Sweet Brown.

Apparently, "Apparently Kid" is it.

Noah Ritter, age 5, stole hearts last week when he apparently made his live TV debut at the Wayne County Fair, and apparently kept using the word "apparently," despite not knowing what it meant.

Maybe the Auto-Tune news remix genre should have just stayed dead, but apparently, long live Noah!
