British Singer Who Got His Big Break On Talent Competition Surprises Everyone On “The King Of Mask Singer”
The identity of “Justice Bao” on MBC’s “The King of Mask Singer” proved to be a very unexpected person!
On the September 23 broadcast, contestants who successfully moved on from the first round last week continued to battle in hopes of defeating the defending “Dongmakgol Girl.”
“Justice Bao” first faced off against contestant “Colosseum” in the second round with a performance of Sorisae’s “You and I.” After successfully garnering more votes, “Justice Bao” moved on to the third round.
In the third round, “Justice Bao” faced off against contestant “Longtail,” and showcased a unique and powerful rendition of Kim Bum Soo’s “I Miss You.”
“Longtail” ended up taking the win over “Justice Bao,” with 70 votes to his 29 votes. “Justice Bao” therefore had to unmask himself.
To everyone’s surprise, “Justice Bao” turned out to be British tenor Paul Potts!
Paul Potts is the winner of the very first season of “Britain’s Got Talent,” which catupulted him into stardom. Many remember his win to be particularly poignant, as he had been a cell phone salesman who had to stop singing due to his health prior to his appearance on the talent show competition.
The tenor explained his special relationship with South Korea, calling it his “second home.” Paul Potts notably sang an OST for “The Great Queen Seon Deok” back in 2009, has held concerts in Korea, and also previously appeared on variety programs “Star King” and “Qualifications of Men.”
When asked what he would say to inspire the youth of today, Paul Potts stated, “Never ever lose hope. Always do what makes you happy, because you can’t ever buy happiness.”
Check out his special performance of “Nessum dorma,” the piece with which he won “Britain’s Got Talent”!
