Jonathan and Charlotte may be the oddest duo you are likely to see. If you encountered them on the street and you might ask ‘what is she doing with him?’ Jonathan with his big frame, long curly hair and sullen look and petite Charlotte with her good looks.
But they are friends. Their characters complement each other. And Jonathan is much much more comfortable when Charlotte is around. It’s like she is his security blanket. The small-framed 16-year old is his fiercest protector from bullies. And besides that, they share a common talent and love for singing.
And that is how, in 2012, they decided to audition for Britain’s Got Talent. Now it is not an easy task. They are up against thousands and thousands of aspiring artists. They just have to push their luck. And when they finally made it to the audition proper they were faced with a skeptical Simon Cowell. Simon is very hard to please we all know that and this is one of those days when he just didn’t like the ‘looks’ of these two. He just didn’t ‘feel’ them judging from their physical appearance. What can this two offer that would make them stand out? They are about to find out.
As Charlotte and Jonathan stood at center stage, Simon uttered a few words and waved them to do their thing. And that was when they were completely blown away. These two contrasting individual giving the most breath-taking, awesome, hair-raising rendition of ‘The Prayer”. It was operatic magnificence the moment Jonathan sang the first few bars of the songs. You will not believe that he is the meek boy that went up on stage. And when Charlotte blended her beautiful voice with Jonathan’s , it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!.
The performance went viral on YouTube that year and Simon Cowell just have to give his elusive yes for how can he say no?. It was a perfect performance from two seemingly imperfect people.
