One chance

I have not been aware of Paul Potts until I was told about him very recently that he was absolutely spectacular. He was a contestant in Britain's Got Talent, another reality show with Simon Cowell's name to it and he mesmerised them with this audition, singing Nessun Dorma. I love to watch the judges' expressions. And while watching this, I was almost in tears. What an amazing talent.

He sang Time to Say Goodbye in the semi-finals. And I have fallen in love with the song.

This is Paul Potts in the finals, singing the full version of Nessun Dorma - he won.

He aptly named his CD One Chance, with this being his one chance in life and won.

  2. you can find lots more clips of Britain's Got Talent here.

  3. Paul is brilliant. It brought up a deep sigh with the tearing up. Thanks for sharing, Pearlie.

  4. I have used the Cowell/Potts clip many times this summer in group settings. I usually use it to communicate the idea that people often surprise us.

    The clip still causes me to tear up.

  5. BK,
    Looks like I should have been more frequent at your blog :)

  6. Bob,
    Good application ... never thought of it to use it that way.
