Click below to view a video clip of Paul Potts singing Nessun Dorma, an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot. This gentle, shy, young man, started to sing opera as a way to escape the real world, which has not treated him so well.

Musical notes

Appearing on “Britain’s Got Talent.,” England’s version of ‘American Idol,” Mr. Potts felt he was not good enough to be on stage, yet he wanted to do this because he always dreamed of singing at this venue (like singing at Carnegie Hall). You can sense that he is a bit nervous, but he gives us a superstar performance.

It is amazing to watch the reactions of the judges and the crowd. It is not often that “nice guys finish first”… But this is one of them.

Watch it, you won’t regret it.:
