I knew that was going to be that guy from America's Got Talent. Lovely for him, but I honestly didn't think he was as good as the improbably opera star from last year's Britain's Got Talent, Paul Potts. He even sang the same song, so it's hard not to invite comparison.



The next Pavarotti? He was decent, but nowhere good enough to start thinking he could have a major opera career. Could use some training. But a nice voice, yes. Good for him.

None of the poll options satisfy my needs.

You're not entirely unfamiliar with poll editing, now are you?

That's more of an IO thing, I don't think I should do that here.

Only on interland would this guy be overly critiqued.

I fail to see how my comment was in any way overly critical of the guy. I said "nice for him, not as good as his British counterpart."

He'll go far on the show.

I didn't vote because none of the options suited what I wanted to say. "Good, happy for him, but not the next Pavarotti."

I dunno, standing Os are rare.
The guy teared up..maybe I'm missing something here.

I think powerful performance wouldn't be an understatement.

You got me nervous about singing karaoke around you now.

I think if you had not started off by comparing him to Pavarotti you would have gotten a better response.

The guy is good, but comparing a reality show contestant to Pavarotti is a bit of a stretch...

Hope you had a good weekend d...

Yes, he's got talent.

But he's got a long road ahead of him if he wants to best "America's Got Talent" judge David Hasselhoff.

YouTube - David Hasselhoff - Hooked on a Feeling

Now HE's got talent.

Hey now. As long as you don't preface your performance by saying "Hey, I'm the next Pavarotti!!!!" you'll be fine.

But seriously - totally different things. I said this in another thread over in Zoo Station, but I would be you any money that the producers told/asked that guy to sing "Nessun Dorma," because they probably all got together and said "Hey, we need to recreate the Paul Potts sensation over in America!"

Which means for those viewers who've heard/seen Paul Potts sing it, you can't help but compare. And Paul Potts sang it far better.

I think he's got a good start, but could stand some more training if he wants to go down the opera path. But I still think he'll do very well on the show.

Yeah, this does seem very similar to the Paul Potts performance/experience. The guy does have talent though.

He could have at least chosen a different song than Potts. He's no doubt talented, but Potts did it better. He also needs to make sure he's on top of the notes, he was a little flat on quite a few.

Not that I could do any better, but then I'm not auditioning for America's Got Talent.
