    That guy is incredible. I like how the "judges" had almost nothing to say afterwards. He came out and without saying it, told everyone to STFU.

    Very cool. Hope this allows him to live his dream and sing opera.

    Wow. That's beautiful. The passioned look on his face though when he sings, that's the icing on the cake. That was really touching.

    Hahahha the look on the judges faces at first. Then the lady is like whoa.. this might actually be good.
    the woman is nodding.
    The crowd is aplausing wayy to early
    Even steve is like hmmmm I'm going to have to dig really hard to find something to say here.

    That's pretty damn awesome.

    Yeah, I liked the looks on the judges faces when the dude said he was going to sing some opera. It was a great way to set the table for eating crow later.

    I'm still stunned by the clip. When you think of people pushing the envelope of the human experience, you think astronauts, people breaking olympic records, etc. Yet here some cell phone guy gets you to literally feel and experience within yourself his emotion and passion for his craft . I've been a musician and worked in the recording biz for a long time and I've only been moved like that a few times. Truely a gift.

    I like how the female judge orgasms several times.

    Okay maybe not, perhaps just a trickle.

    She could use another facelift, methinks.

    I should stop typing now...

    Just in case you do a search the show is called

    Britains got Talent

    When I saw the show with Paul on he just blew me away. The voice was not the one I was expecting, amazing.

    soooooo cute
    but not a tear jerker like the first guy, she's cute you adore her to begin with, he brings out the pity as soon as he comes out, you want to hold him to protect him from people laughing at him, for him to come out on top and have everyone clapping for him had me in tears..
