British’s Got Talent features some of the UK’s most amazing unknown singers. No one expected to hear the voice of 23-year-old high school teacher Tom Ball. The judges were amazed when he started singing Sam Smith’s “Writing on the Wall”. This shy young teacher from Sussex puts on a powerful performance that makes the audience wince.
The notes played by Sam Smith are not easy, but Tom Ball plays them flawlessly. Even though Simon looked skeptical at first, it can be said that he is impressed with Tom’s talent. Tom’s outstanding performance made everyone jump to their feet and applaud. His fiancée and father in the hall were amazed at the reaction. I’m sure his students at home were shocked too!
The judges noted that Tom might be the best singer to grace the BGT stage of the entire show. The first three judges very easily agreed to Tom’s entry into the next round.
