Simon gets flak on the comments, but the audience was just as bad. And Simon actually had the most relevant statements. I like them as a pair, but it may not always be necessary. If he gets invited to be in an opera, it's up to the producers if they need her. And she has a beautiful voice as well. Still, I hope they do an album together.

Meh.....Yes, this guy has a great voice, but alot of people on BGT do....it's the whole, "reverse-discrimination" thing that bothers me...Yes, don't hate people because they don't look like stars, but don't cheer louder because they don't either

Let me ask you, if this guy looked like Fabio or Justin Beiber or like every other celebrity, would you have been so impressed by his voice to post a video? The reason he's gotten so much publicity isn't because he's a great singer, which he is...but because people believe they have treat him differently then everyone else...reverse discrimination is just as bad as regular discrimination

Close your eyes next time you watch BGT, you'll see....

I agree that he may or may not win the competition, but I think the strength behind shows like BGT are the surprises, the fact that a pair that you could dismiss out of hand could, in fact, possess enough talent be in the competition in the later stages. Time will tell whether he wins or loses, but there are a lot of opera companies that would love to have him and he definitely has a career in front of him.

I always thought Paul and Susan should hook up.

Unusual use of the phrase. Don't think it applies at all. Do agree that he has an amazing voice. I think everyone would have have been cheering even if he looked like an everyday bloke from Britain. No way to prove either way, but I like my version better.
