I'm no opera fan, but when this unassuming phone saleman takes the stage of BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT, the crowd goes nuts and even my black heart warmed up for a second. (Hint: snort poppers right before Paul hits the high note.) Even bitter old Simon Cowell tries not to like it but is beaming by the end. It's a thrill to hear the soaring melody of Puccini coming out of Paul's very english-looking teeth! I'm not a fan of these endless competition-themed shows, but I've always said, at least the singing competitions can sometimes give airtime to talents like Fantasia and Ruben Studdard whose looks or weight might never allow them a national platform because of the standards of record industry's narrow-minded gate-keepers. Standards which unfortunately do not always include singing ability. This is a joy to watch.
