Nervous teen is overwhelmed by the spotlight, but paralyzes judges once he starts to sing

Charlotte and Jonathan may look like your average teenagers, but they’re definitely not.
Unlike their peers, the two are incredible singers. You have to hear this opera-pop duo blow away the judges on Britain’s Got Talent. I don’t think I have ever seen Simon Cowell as amazed by a performance as he is by this one.
The duo began singing together after it was suggested by their teacher. From there, they formed an unbreakable bond both in performing and in life. Not only singing partners, Charlotte and Jonathan are best friends.

While the singing is amazing, their interview before the performance will break your heart a bit. Jonathan explains how his confidence is low due to him being bullied for his appearance. It’s terribly upsetting to hear him say this, but we’re glad he has a good friend like Charlotte. She sees Jonathan for who he is on the inside, and it is touching to hear how much that’s helped him.
“Charlotte’s been a really big help for me in terms of confidence and making me a better performer,” says Jonathan. “I really don’t think I’d be going up on stage today if I didn’t have her with me.”
As the duo gets ready to begin, Cowell seems his usual skeptical self. The moment they open their mouths, though, his whole demeanor changes. It’s impossible not to be moved by this performance. It’s pure magic.
The way that Charlotte’s pop sound compliments the classic, powerful sounds of Jonathan’s opera voice is something your ears need to experience. The whole stadium was brought to their feet by this performance!
My favorite part of the video, however, was when a stunned Cowell told Jonathan that he was going to be a star. I couldn’t agree more! I did, however, disagree when he then told him that staying with Charlotte was going to hold his career back.

Jonathan’s response to this is absolutely perfect! It was so good that it made the audience (and us!) tear up. You have to watch the video of this powerful performance to hear what Jonathan has to say in response to Cowell.
