When Jonathan and Charlotte walked onto the stage of “Britain’s Got Talent”, Simon Cowell couldn’t help but judge the book by its cover. He whispered to one of the judges, “Just when you think it can’t get any worse,” predicting that the audition would be a waste of time.
But little did he know that their performance would become one of the greatest viral hits on YouTube. Jonathan, who had always been bullied because of his size, suffered a nervous breakdown three months prior to the audition, and Charlotte became his fearless keeper.
In the video below, the duo mixes opera with pop in their rendition of “The Prayer.” When Jonathan, who was initially shy, opens his mouth to sing, his self-confidence and talent skyrocket. Simon’s jaw drops as he watches the incredible performance unfold before his eyes.
In the end, Simon’s judgment was completely different from his initial reaction. Jonathan and Charlotte’s act is a perfect reminder to never judge a book by its cover. Watch the video below and prepare to witness an act of a lifetime.
