    I am willing to bet that karthik speaks more than one language, and hence understands how english has questionable pronounciation and learnt it. Being a genius speller had little to do with it.

      You seriously couldn't tell he was nervous and shy? He's a kid and not used to being on stage in front of an audience. Have you ever done public speaking in front of a crowd? Some people are naturals and others are not.
