HOLY CRAP! That guy was frigging incredible. I thought it was a joke like he was singing to a backup tape or something or just some video on YouTube.

Good grief that guy is phenomenal.

Jesus Christ what did I just listen too?? And can someone help me find my balls because that was the most amazing that I heard in awhile... I'm actually going to start looking for some opera on Limewire and hopefully play some between 50cent and Metallica :D

But very good job by that guy... What has he been doing this whole time? Has nobody heard him sing?

1) Doesn't Simon make enough money?

2) Why do British people have jacked up teeth?

1.)Actually Simon started American Idol from his orginal Idea from the U.K. PopIdol. PopIdol did so well he ported it over to America.

2.) I wanna know why dental hygiene isn't a booming career there?

Okay I've seen this over and over again. The guy should be doing opera.

What makes it so touching that some cry? I think its boring.

You ladies don't forget to hang your panties up to dry before you go to sleep tonight.

Btw, is the AI format over there different? This seemed like an early stage of the audition, yet it had a huge audience which is different from the US version.

If it is anything like AI, that is likely the 3rd or 4th round after going through waves of producers.

That was nice, good for that guy. I don't know what the standards are for Opera, but I hope he can start doing that as a living.


Is anybody else annoyed by Nomi as much as I am? Here's David Bowie pwning hm in a cartoon.

It's the same format as the US version, America's got talent on NBC. They have all kinds weird talent on it.

"CON TE PARTIRO"
for comparison here are Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli's version (partly anglocized as "Time to Say Goodbye"


If you're not moved by this, then I pity you.

OK, I DO like opera and don't really care about any jokes relating. The guy was fine - a little sloppy but still good. The dude is Welsh, though, and they have a long tradition of excellence in singing.

As an aside, Luciano Pavarotti is a big, fat, sweaty slut. He tried to convince a few f my friends to shower with him after they performed together. Pretty awesome. Just imagine him in all his largeness, standing in a towel, playing the pimp with his Italian accent. Unfortunately, it didn't work this time, but from what they said he usually gets what he wants.

There is simply something about the guy that you have to like.

I consider myself a damn good singer, and he blows me away.

Simply put, he made a fan of me.
