Paul Potts contratado por Simon Cowell
Incluso los que no vemos American Idol sabemos que Simon Cowell es el jurado más «temido» de ese tipo de programas. Y, a estas alturas, todo el mundo sabe que Paul Potts es el vendedor de celulares/tenor aficionado que ganó el «Britain’s Got Talent» (el British Idol, digamos).
Y a estas alturas todos hemos visto (varias veces) esta maravilla:
Y ayer, la BBC informa:
Opera singer Paul Potts, the winner of TV’s Britain’s Got Talent, has signed a deal to release his debut album in 15 countries, including the US.
The former mobile phone salesman won fans across the world after 10 million people viewed his winning performance on video-sharing site YouTube.
The 36-year-old Welshman signed a £1m recording deal with show judge Simon Cowell after his win last month.
The album will include Nessun Dorma, which he performed on the programme.(…)
Potts’ victory on Britain’s Got Talent won him £100,000 and a spot performing at the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen.
The ITV1 show proved a ratings hit as 11 million people tuned into the final, in which Potts beat six-year-old singer Connie Talbot to the prize.
El que no se emociona con la historia de Potts, no es humano.
