Simon Cowell Floored by Britain’s Talent

If you have yet to see this awe-inspiring snippet from Britain’s Got Talent, it’s time to do so.  With judges Simon Cowell, Carmen Electra, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams mesmorized, Charlotte Jaconelli performed Andrea Bocelli’s and Celine Dion’s “The Prayer” with rising star Jonathan Antoine.

Sadly, Jonathan revealed to the UK Sun that he has not been in school lately, as he’s been the butt of much bullying.  As he said, “I had a nervous breakdown back in October. At that point I left the school I was at and rejoined the school I was at previously in the New Year. But then I couldn’t handle at either, so I’m currently not at school but still enrolled. Me and school just don’t get on. That’s just the way it has always been. I’ve never felt right there. Ever since I was quite small I’ve had weight problems, and the bullying was related to that. People would be nasty about my weight and say nasty words.”

However, he is certainly worth watching. Let’s hope that Britain’s Got Talent allows Jonathan to turn a corner with his amazing talent.
