Paul Potts won the first season of “Britain’s Got Talent” back in 2007 with his powerful operatic voice and her could well do the same on the first season of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” Paul earned his place in the final by winning the superfans vote against magician Jon Dorenbos. Watch a video of his stunning performance of “Caruso” above. He was backed by a string sextet and earned multiple standing ovations.
Since he came to fame on “BGT, Paul has recorded chart-topping albums and sold out concert halls worldwide. His life story was even turned into a Hollywood movie, “One Chance,” starring Emmy and Tony winner James Corden.
He is one of the 18 winners from various editions of “Got Talent” to compete in the first season of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” Among the other “BGT” winners, we’ve already seen the 2012 champ Ashleigh with her dog Sully. They fell short on episode 2. On episode 1, the most famous alumni of the franchise, 2009 “BGT” runner-up Susan Boyle, got the Golden Buzzer from Mel B.
In the final of this “AGT” spin-off, Paul will face off against Boyle, his fellow Brit, as well as the two other Golden Buzzer winners to date: daredevil act Deadly Games from episode 2, who won over Heidi Klum; and child singer Angelica Hale, who charmed Howie Mandel earlier in episode 3.
Also set for the final are the two other acts that have won the superfan votes: stand-up comic Preacher Lawson (episode 1) and rock opera singer Cristina Ramos (episode 2).
