So there's a show in the UK called "Britain's Got Talent,"and this cellphone salesman says he really, deep-down, wants to sing opera. Uh, OK. Then this happens. Here's Paul's Myspace page.
The selection, by the way, is "Nessun Dorma" from Puccini's "Turandot."
Now, you'll recognize, maybe, Piers Morgan from the stateside version, "America's Got Talent." And of course, there's Simon Cowell. And of course, there's the forced drama of reality TV. But this is cool. Enjoy.
Turns out Potts has done some local opera, but, if all goes well on the show, maybe he gets beyond that. And, if you're interested in comparing, to see if he's any good, really, check out the other "Nessun Dorma" vids on YouTube. Here's Pavarotti.
