Setup, irrelevant...his look, also irrelevant. Point: That voice came outta that guy. And it was damned good. I`m not an opera fan in the least but I gotta hand it to the guy...awesome voice. End.

I think this was set up.
Nick Cannon came up to him outside of the building, amongst thousands of thousands of people, and chose to talk to him. Not to mention that a goth kid would never sing opera, maybe a hipster, but not a goth. And lastly, he couldn`t have a voice like that without any training whatsoever.

Awesome voice. Unfortunately, he`ll have to spend a lot of time out of the States to make it worth while. Like most other arts, the American way doesn`t leave much wiggle room for starving artists.

Oh God, please dont let tomorrow`s new headline be "AGT goth opera singer`s teacher says, I`ve been teaching him since he was 5 and he has performed at the Met."

He could use some training, but it`s definitely there. He`s a counter-tenor btw, if you all were wondering

I thought he sang very well. Good for him, to get on stage and take a chance.

God I hate these shows. Ever stop and think you might be watching something as real as the WWE? Pop music crap.

I hate it when people dress or act a certain way that is not socially "normal" then complain about how they aren`t accepted by society. If you want to be accepted as "normal", you have to dress/act that way. Being an "individual" MAKES you stand out. That`s the point of individuality.

Ugh.

Very awesome talent. I still feel like he might be hiding underneath the makeup and contacts... but I admit that`s judgmental of me.

Total cutie pants, too.

Yeah I love how they presented this as just one kid in the crowd they happened to interview and follow but his mom was freaking miked when they threw questions at her. This was just such reality show bullpoo and it sucks because the guy has a great singing voice. They need to team him up with last months shut in with a great voice. The fat kid who sang opera.

Talks with a man`s voice. Grows facial hair. Can sing soprano opera. As amazing as he is right now, I do wonder how long the last ability will last.

I don`t know if people were surprised because of his look, or because he sounded like a woman...

Even I was like "What. The. Actual. F*ck."

It`s not every day some GUY walks out on stage and sings like an opera woman...

That was REALLY good. Kinda weird that it was a girl`s voice coming out of a man`s body. He is not a "Mr. Poppycock", but with TRAINING he can and WILL get there. So, to sum it all up, I am VERY impressed with his talent, BUT he does need some coaching.

He`s nowhere near as good a singer as Prince Poppycock. And nowhere near as artistic. Where do you get off comparing him to Prince Poppycock?

Yeah I don`t buy the nobody had heard me sing spiel either. Unless he grew up in Buckingham Palace chances are your family heard your caterwauling in the shower. Close your eyes. They`re distracting.

The cynic in me has to point out that he must have sung in front of some production staff, they don`t let everyone sing in front of the main panel, it would take weeks for the auditions to be completed. They wouldn`t have the interviews from before the performance unless they knew he could sing.

They don`t just interview everyone on the off chance one of them has a good voice so, as impressive as he was, the whole "never sung in front of anyone" thing has to be total bs.

Also, all of these talent shows prey on peoples hopes and dreams. For every Andrew DeLeon or Susan Boyle there are 10,000s of people who queued for hours and travelled for days to have their dreams crushed.

Is it not a bit rich these shows presenting this kind of narrative? The whole, it doesn`t matter what you look like if you can sing thing. The only reason that has become the status quo is because of the kind of parasitic boyband spawning scumbags that run these things (Louis Wal

It`s good to see kids being interested in Opera. This is one art that could die off.

I think this is a perfect reason why I don`t watch these shows. It`s shows how pathetic a bunch of wankers are in the audience. "Oh hey, this person dresses weird/they aren`t good looking/fat/(look at Susan Boyale)" and then they`re suddenly amazing at singing and SOMEHOW people are surprised by this. It`s like the a-hole audience don`t expect someone to wear make or be fat to have talent and are then impressed when this happens. What a depressing species.
