Not a Lump of Coal

WOW WOW WOW!!! This is amazing. I was standing up and cheering in my apartment while watching Paul Potts, the eventual winner of the competition, performs a bone-chilling rendition of Nessun Dorma, by Puccini. It is an aria from the opera Turandot. Let's hope this man realizes great success.

These clips are from the British TV show Britain's Got Talent. It's the American Idol of the U.K.

This is remarkable:

And his final, winning performance:

I am not and have never been a fan of these "talent" shows because the standard fare is not my type of music. It's refreshing to see something other than a Paula Abdul wannabe win.
