Incredible

Maybe I'm still feeling a little punchy, but this completely brought me to tears, and I had to share. Catch up with you later!

Enjoy!

very nice, that was very touching.

it was fun to watch the judges faces each turn from skeptic/boredom to delight (i think the audience got excited before the judges did...it was if they were afraid to get excited).

Thanks for sharing this.

Well, shedding tears - I needed that and I didn't need that. Know what I mean?
It was beautiful.

I'm actually appalled that talent like this is either overlooked or overshadowed by crap that's "more entertaining". Drunken karaoke thinks it belongs on a record label and this poor guy is working a day job and has a problem with self-confidence. Please let someone in charge notice that that is Not How It's Supposed to Be.

That was....WOW. I got chill bumps.

I'm stunned.

I have dial-up so it took me the better part of an hour to download. Based on the pictures as they herky-jerked forward I would have guessed it was a "make fun of the guy with goofy teeth".

When that young man opened his mouth I got completely choked up and my jaw hit the table.

It will be an absolute crime if that young man doesn't end up with a career in opera at the very least.

WOW. That was amazing!
Thank you for sharing that!

I wish I had the courage to sing in front of people like that!!

And I wish I had a voice like that...sadly, I sing best in the car with the radio, or in the shower alone! LOL

This guy was AMAZING!!!! If he doesn't win it all, then there is a problem with the system!!

Thanks for posting his Nessun Dorma. His Italian was very good, and he has a great voice and solid technique-- tenor is the hardest voice type to get right - I hope he parlays this into an opera career. Good on him!

I am so shallow. I was unaware of this guy, so I kept expecting the joke to break though at any time. I am so glad I was wrong, because that man has a huge talent that touched even Simon and deserves to be shared. Thank you for providing this gift. I've watched this video 4 times now.
