I couldn't resist posting this one--Paul Potts, the cellphone salesman from Wales won the Britain Has Talent contest! He got a recording contract and plans to pay off debts and get his teeth fixed with the award money. Go Paul--see you at the Met!
I'd like to think that if a singer of his caliber competed on American Idol singing a classical piece like "Nessun Dorma" that person would win, too. But I'm sorry to say that I doubt it.
What do you think?
