On June 9, 2007, Potts' audition of Simon Cowell's new search-for-a-star show Britain's Got Talent was televised on ITV in UK. The actual audition was held at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on March 17, 2007. Paul sang a condensed version of Giacomo Puccini's "Nessun dorma", which impressed the judges and received a standing ovation from the audience of 2,000 people. Potts' rendition of this has currently been viewed on video upload site YouTube tens of millions of times and exists among Youtube's all-time most viewed videos.
I actually found out about this at Quijote Urbano... I left a comment about how so much of humanity's Talent is hidden.... and let it be so.. :p I wish someday soon we wake up (just a bit) and revolt against this mass mechanization.... (just as soon as we have/create walking automatons... :D)
