Meet The ‘NEXT Susan Boyle’
March 26, 2012 by staff
Meet The ‘NEXT Susan Boyle’, Jonathan Antoine stuns on “BGT”The new season of “Britain’s Got Talent” just premiered this past weekend, and already the show has a breakout contestant, 17-year-old Jonathan Antoine, who is earning comparisons to “BGT” superstar Susan Boyle and the new nickname “SuBoy.”
While a 33-year age gap separates SuBo and SuBoy, the similarities are still obvious. Both are opera singers, and both have struggled with shyness, emotional fragility, and a lifetime of being teased and bullied. And, as was the case with Susan, Jonathan’s appearance in no way matches his incredible singing voice, so he too created an unforgettable TV moment when he opened his mouth and sang on “BGT” for the very first time.
Jonathan sings with friend Charlotte JaconelliWhen Jonathan auditioned for “BGT” this past Saturday alongside his 16-year-old pop-singer friend and vocal school classmate, Charlotte Jaconelli, he hardly looked like a budding opera star. If anything, he looked like he might be trying out to be the slovenly singer of a grunge band, with his scraggly hair and faded Hendrix T-shirt. Judge Simon Cowell flashed his signature skeptical scowl, of course, as Jonathan and Charlotte appeared onstage. (“Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse,” he muttered.) But then the duo started belting out Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion’s “The Prayer,” at which point the look of shock on Simon’s face was reminiscent of his stunned expression the first time he heard Susan Boyle sing. And he told Jonathan, “You’re a future star.”
