I wanted Connie to win too


But Max how do you know that about the Opera singer? Is this a case of Simon fixing the winning result for record sales
German quote below from http://www.20min.ch/tools/suchen/story/31562636

The guy's gonna be a millionaire. The World ain't just...

"Paul Potts gewann die TV-Show «Britain's Got Talent» - und das, obwohl der Handyverkäufer eigentlich ein von Luciano Pavarotti persönlich ausgebildeter Opernsänger ist (20minuten.ch berichtete).

Auch die britische Boulevardzeitung «Sun» berichtete am nächsten Tag über das Verschweigen von Pauls Vergangenheit - doch der Sänger war nicht mehr zu stoppen. In der heutigen Ausgabe der «Sun» heisst es denn auch: «Einige Zuschauer waren empört. Viele waren wütend, weil ihnen nie gesagt wurde, dass er ein professioneller Sänger ist, der von Pavarotti ausgebildet worden war...». "

Re: YouTube Of The Day

Lots of folk seem to be of the opinion that paul Potts is a professional singer.

I found out that he appeared on a previous British talent show and although didn't come first, he used his £8000 winnings to travel to Italy and study further at one of the major opera schools. He was deemed to be good enough to sing in front of Pavarotti,

He has sung in many amateur operatic productions but these have all been unpaid.

As his income is derived from his day job in a mobile phone shop, he can be considered to be amateur.

A bit more about him on the Bath opera site here: http://www.bathopera.co.uk/Past%20Pr...iographies.htm

HTH

PS I sound like a fanboy!!

This is absolutely hilarious! Somebody told me this was at the end of the movie, but I don't remember it...

For the serious aviation geeks like yours truly - this is one heck of a short-field touchdown.

Re: YouTube Of The Day

After this came up in conversation over coffee, I was amazed to see most of my friends hadn't heard of this sketch. So just in case, here it is. Apparently this led to big changes in darts on TV ...
