Video: 'Britain's Got Talent' Finds the Next Susan Boyle in Jonathan Antoine


The 17-year-old male opera singer earns the nickname SuBoy after blowing away the judges of the British talent show with a duet of 'The Prayer' with friend Charlotte Jaconelli.

One contestant has emerged as a standout in the sixth season of "Britain's Got Talent". In a Saturday, March 24 episode of the reality series, Jonathan Antoine stole the show after taking the stage to perform Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli's "The Prayer" with his vocal school classmate, Charlotte Jaconelli.

Appearing on the stage in a faded shirt and baggy trousers, Jonathan earned a cynical comment from Simon Cowell who judged him based on his plain look before listening to his voice. "Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse," he told fellow judge Carmen Electra.

The judge on "The X Factor (US)", however, was left stunned after watching Jonathan's performance. "You're a future star," the British producer praised the 17-year-old boy, who has since drawn comparisons to Susan Boyle and earned a new nickname "SuBoy".

When Simon expressed his worry that Charlotte would hold him back, Jonathan refused to dump her and insisted they would remain as a duo. All four judges, including David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, gave "yes" to the two singing hopefuls, with Simon finally realizing that Charlotte complements Jonathan.

Being interviewed after the performance, Jonathan opened up that Charlotte gave him confidence. "I really didn't think I'd be going up on stage today if I didn't have Charlotte by my side. Charlotte has been a really big help for me in terms of confidence," he admitted.
