Bill Dembski at Uncommon Descent writes about Paul Potts:
Watch the faces of the judges as this fellow walks on the stage. Based on his looks and the fact that he is a cell phone salesman, they initially misjudge him. Sometimes you have to stop believing what everyone is telling you and start listening to your passion.
Great talent, like great ideas, sometimes comes in very humble and ordinary packages.
