First Britain's Got Talent Winner Returns For Opera Performance

The very first Britain's Got Talent winner, Paul Potts, returns to the Got Talent stage for another rousing opera performance. Paul rose to fame after his incredible audition for Britain’s Got Talent. During the first season, this talented opera singer belted out the lyrics to Giacomo Puccini's "Nessun dorma."


The audience and judges went crazy. In fact, the video of his performance has been viewed over 177 million times online. Paul went on to win the entire season and making himself a household name. Now, this singing sensation is back as a contestant on America’s Got Talent: The Champions.

This special format features 50 contestants who have won or been featured on previous editions of the show. These competitors come from all over the world and now they’re all vying for the ultimate winner’s title. As the very first winner of Britain’s Got Talent, Paul has a lot to live up to and a title to defend. But when he steps on stage and beautifully performs "Caruso,” we all remembered why he won in the first place.

During his performance, one of the other contestants was watching backstage and remarked, “Oh, wow! He’s so good. I got chills.” Paul’s rendition of this classic song easily earned a standing ovation from the whole arena and now he’s got his eye on the prize. There’s no doubt in my mind that Paul is going to be a top contender in this competition. Who else thinks he has what it takes to go all the way?
