Just weeks removed from a Les Miserables number turning a plain Jane spinster into an overnight household name, Britain’s Got Talent has a new rising star — and he’s at your door in 30 minutes or less.
Pizza delivery driver Jamie Pugh is the latest insta-star of variety show Britain’s Got Talent, as his brilliant performance of Bring Him Home (also from Les Miserables) gained “oohs” and “aahs” from judges and audience members alike.
The 38-year-old singer, from Blackwood, Gwent in the UK, said he suffered from “extreme stage fright” before mustering up the courage to belt out a bravo-worthy rendition of the slow-paced song.
As of early Monday, the YouTube video had racked up more than 320,000 hits since being posted two days earlier.
“People like you is the reason we come to Wales every year, because we like to find special, special talents,” a humbled Simon Cowell told Pugh, who was wiping away tears. “You know what, we might just have one.”
