Opera Idol!

Tonight, at the end of Brit Hume's show on Fox News, he played a YouTube film clip of Mr. Paul Potts, a gentleman from South Wales, singing an operatic aria called "Nessun dorma" from Turrandot on the British version of American Idol.

Potts was awesome!!! Nice, full voice, lots of power, without sounding heavy. Simply beautiful. His dream was to be an opera singer, he said. He wants to do it as a career. Currently, he is a cellphone salesman.

The audience ate it up. They were cheering by about the fifth measure.

And Simon? Simon was grinning from ear to ear and applauding.

Forget American Idol. Obviously, the better show to watch is Britain's Got Talent. :D

Here is a link to the video.

This is what 'living the dream' truly means--doing what you want in life--not trying, but doing it.

I think it was called "Pop Idol" and I think we actually exported the idea to you folks, not the other way around :-P

(although I could be wrong, I lost interest back in the days of Hear'Say. i.e. when we invented this phenomenon...)

Rich--Yes, I think the show started in Britain first, and they decided to do an American version of it.

I am so pleased that that guy has apparently made it to the semi-finals!
