Change his name I mean. So you know who Steve Jobs is, right? But do you know who Paul Potts is? He’s the mobile phone salesman, make that former mps who recently won Britain’s equivalent of “American Idol”. In the two weeks since Paul Potts won the Britain’s Got Talent contest by singing an aria from Puccini Nessun Dorma, his performance has become the most-watched YouTube video in the United Kingdom, and the fifth most-watched video anywhere this month. More than a thousand Paul Potts videos have been placed on the site and the three most popular have been visited by over 12 million people.
A darling, humble, gap-tooted man with a voice like Pavarotti whose next gig will be singing for the Queen. Only in America, I mean, Britain. Go for it, Paul, and oh yes, maybe fix the teeth <smile>.
