I've been pleasantly surprised at the wide response that my previous post has attracted. Paul Potts, the mobile phone salesman from Wales wowed the audience with his rendition of "Nessun Dorma" on ITV's Britain's Got Talent.

I realize that not everyone has access to ITV, so here's an update on the competition. Judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan were on their feet this week, joining the audience in giving Potts a second standing ovation at the conclusion of his latest performance in the semi-finals last night.

Holden said Potts made her cry again and Morgan said that Potts was exactly the profile they were looking for: somebody doing an ordinary job, very unassuming, with an amazing talent, and they could provide him a platform to show the world what he had.

I'd say that if he sticks to it, odds are he's going to win the whole thing. The finals are on Sunday, June 17.
