Paul Potts takes German topspot after ad successAugust 6th, 2008 - 4:56 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 6 (ANI): Paul Potts, who won Britains Got Talent last year, has now become a sensation in Germany, after ads of his first audition for the show made rounds of phones in the country.
The 37-year-old Opera sensation scored the top spot in German charts, as well as in 20 other countries with his album One Chance.
The advert for phone giant Telekom, shows Pottss first audition for the ITV1 show, when he nervously performed in front of judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan.
When he walked to the stage for his audition, Amanda asked: What are you here for today, Paul? and he replied: To sing opera.
But the bored-looking judges were smitten by his staggering rendition of Nessun Dorma.
The ad shows the public watching his audition on their mobile phones and laptops.
The ad only launched last month, and its been a massive hit. The Germans cant get enough of Paul, The sun quoted a source, as saying.
Pauls next album is set to be released at Christmas. (ANI)
