'Britain's Got Talent'

Jonathan Antoine

Is Susan Boyle 2.0

3/25/2012 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mania that was Susan Boyle has passed -- but get ready for the next shy, introverted but extremely talented singer from "Britain's Got Talent" ... and his name is Jonathan Antoine

Jonathan and his singing partner Charlotte Jaconelli blew the judges' pants off on last night's show, performing a sort of opera/pop duet together. 

Simon Cowell in particular went from skeptical to giant fan in a matter of minutes, though he said he felt Jonathan (who was trembling after his performance) was clearly the stronger of the two singers.

RIP SuBo ... long live SuBoy!!!

Not to be mean, but I think if people heard opera more often they would realize his voice isn't really that big of a deal.

Simon was right. That girl performance wise will hold him back. She was good, but not in the same league as him.

If he thinks he will score with her by keeping the act a duo, he is in for a surprise.

Susan Boyle is alive and well! She is still breaking music sales records and topping the charts with 3 hit CDs so far. She is still under contract with Sony, and will release her 4th album this year. The I Dreamed a Dream Musical story of her life starring Elaine Smith opens in NewCastle on Tuesday, 27 March. Susan sings in the musical, and the previews are getting rave reviews!

She may not have as strong a voice as he has BUT she is the confidence, so to speak, he needs to get up there and sing. Maybe they just need balance the mikes a bit better, turning her's up so she can be a little more equal in volume. And good for him for not dumping her. He may only be 17 but he knows what it means to be a loyal friend. That says so much about it that is totally wonderful beyond that amazing voice.

Simon gave a standing O? Well deserved.

BGT is so much better than the stuff we have.

AMAZING! She looks like a pretty version of Amber Portwood from Teen Mom 2. A MUCH prettier version.

Couldn't he have shown up in something more professional looking? Even just a change of shirt to basic button down would have gone a long way. She at least threw on a jacket.

TMJ---- keep track of this young man....what talent and so inspiring to see him put it out there despite whatever esteem issues he had. Ignore the likes of the TALENTLESS Kardashians, Snookies and other attention mongers. Jonathan Antoine ---- we love you!
