Seen this? WOW.
« on: September 22, 2007, 04:40 AM »
I didn't know where to stick this, so I guess I'll give it it's own thread.  My wife showed me this "Britain's Got Talent" clip on YouTube last night and I thought it was actually fake at first, but then was...well, you'll have to watch it for yourself, if you're not one of the 25 million+ folks who hasn't seen it already:


Paul Potts on "Britain's Got Talent"


I doubt Simon Cowell's ever looked so stunned before.  Never judge a book by it's cover, eh...?   :o

P.S.  I think I'm officially in love with Amanda now too.

In general I don't listen to a lot of opera but that's pretty badass.

Speaking of Amanda ... I'm pretty sure she wet herself during Paul's performance.
That was impressive.

Yeah, I thought it might have looked fake also at first, but that was impressive.

Wow, what a voice. I checked the other clips of his performance on the show & just amazing, happy to see him win. Truly a rags to riches story.

Pretty incredible.  I might have actually watched some if that had happened on American Idol.

I was in Wal-Mart tonight, and they actually have a DVD/CD 2-pack for this guy.  Nice to see.

Um, nice, but can Todd McDevitt sing opera?  Is Todd related to Paul Potts?   ???

Not since Paul Potts was on the show has there ever been another... till now.  :o  :o

I doubt Simon Cowell's ever looked so stunned before.  Never judge a book by it's cover, eh...?   :o

It appears that Simon Cowell will give Susan a record deal, even in the unlikely event that she doesn’t win.


PS Matt,  Amanda is still hot, if not hotter!  ;D
