Did you watch that? Are you in tears or what? This is going to be a short blog today because that video said it all! The look on Simon Cowell's face when 16-year-old Charlotte and 17-year-old Jonathan walked onto the stage was similar to the rest of the pompous looking audience, who also seemed to be giggling at the sight of Jonathan. Cowell even whispered to his Britain's Got Talent co-star Carmen Electra, "Just when you thought that it couldn't get any worse." That's so not right to judge a book by its cover!
Apparently, the duo went to the same singing teacher and was advised to audition for the British American Idol-type of show together. Upon walking on the stage, the judges and audience members gawked at the oddly paired and oddly shaped duo. Charlotte looked slender and shapely, while Jonathan was rather large and frumpy looking. To be honest, I might've frowned if I saw him walk onstage too.
What I wasn't expecting was the voice that came out of Jonathan, and neither did the judges or the crowd. The kid had the voice of Luciano Pavarotti! It was absolutely amazing! I let my girlfriend watch the video and she was literally in tears, and so were many of the audience members. Simon Cowell did a total 360, and even told Jonathan that Charlotte would hold him back. Jonathan's response was, "We came here as a duo, we move on as a duo!" Yeah, we'll see what happens when the money starts flowing in.
If you haven't watched this video yet, you need to see this! It's a little upsetting to see how people judged this poor kid until he started singing. Now, everyone wants a piece of him. I have to say that the old saying of 'You can't judge a book by its cover!' totally applies here!
