Salesman triumphs in final of talent show singing "Nessun Dorma"

A mobile phone salesman won the television show Britain’s Got Talent last night.
Paul Potts, 36, an amateur opera singer from Port Talbot, Glamorgan, won the £100,000 prize and the opportunity to sing at the Royal Variety Performance after a public vote. More than two million people cast their votes.

The tenor, who hid his singing talent from work colleagues at Carphone Warehouse, wooed judges on the ITV show from the first note of his audition piece, Puccini’s Nessun Dorma. Read the full article here. See a video of Paul singing Puccini’s Nessun Dorma.
