Britain's Got Talent, Too 2

Following up on my last post, Paul Potts went on to win the grand prize in Britain's Got Talent. From TimesOnline:
    Mobile phone salesman Paul Potts was celebrating today after being crowned the winner of Britain's Got Talent.

    Last night's show saw two million viewers cast their vote - the biggest number so far, according to co-host Ant McPartlin, who had earlier declared: "The whole country has gone Paul Potts potty."

    The 36-year-old from Port Talbot, South Wales, counts Pavarotti among his heroes and wowed judges with his version of Nessun Dorma.

    The Ant and Declan Donnelly-hosted show saw variety wannabes from singers to performing dogs vie for a £100,000 prize and a slot in this year's Royal Variety Performance.

    Potts was told by judge Simon Cowell that next week he would be heading for a studio to be recording his debut album.

    Potts said afterwards: "I feel like jelly. It means like absolutely everything thank you for believing in me.

    "I don't think there's any way to describe this. It just leaves me speechless. Absolutely speechless."
Here's his winning performance from the finale:

It's heartwarming to see how Paul Potts has risen from his humble beginnings as a Cambodian dictator! That's testimony to what good music can do for the soul.

I was going to go there, but couldn't think of a good joke. Well done!

You said today's SECRET WORD! Today's Secret Word was the phrase "Cambodian Dictator"!


If a Cambodian Dictator can be a British pop star, then there's hope for the Afghani terrorist who's running for US President! YEAH!
