Jonathan Antoine: Top 10 Most Popular Britain's Got Talent Auditions

ITV hit show Britain's Got Talent returned to our screens last weekend and there is one man in particular that stole the show - Jonathan Antoine 

The opera singer has already been dubbed the 'new SuBo' by many of the national papers, with his Susan Boyle-esque audition receiving hundreds of thousands of views online in the last few days.

Jonathan, a shy 17-year-old, partnered with pal Charlotte Jaconelli, 16, and stunned the crowd with their rendition of 'The Prayer' by Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli.

You could see what was coming from the first minute. Jonathan walks on stage and is presumed to be dreadful as Simon whispers, 'and just when you thought it couldn't get any worse'. Jonathan and Charlotte then begin to sing, and what do you know, his voice is amazing, the audience loves him, and Mr Cowell looks stunned, blinded by £ signs in his eyes.

So it's 4 big yesses and a standing ovation followed by some pretty standard dramatic Leona Lewis music.

The audition also brought a slight dilemma. It was clear that Jonathan was a far more striking performer than Charlotte, as Cowell bluntly stated, 'in my head, I'd say you should dump her'.

Jonathan stood his ground for his mate Charlotte, stating he wished to continue as a duo, however, it remains to be seen whether the producers will find some way of axing his loyal friend to unleash his true star potential.

The video of Jonathan's audition have already has over 1.5 million views and has been shared up to 90,000 times over the last few days.

Jonathan may of wowed the judges, but he has a long while to go to claim his spot on the Britain's Got Talent audition wall of fame.

Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed A Dream' audition is one of the most watched videos online, with over 87 million views. Although surprisingly only half a million people have shared the video online. Meaning a shocking 0.57% of viewers felt inclined to share Boyle's epic pipes with their friends!

So, to celebrate the return of the show, and, most importantly, to observe the benchmark that Jonathan and fellow auditors will have to compete with, we have compiled a chart of the top 10 most shared BGT auditions of all time.

We are quite shocked about the top spot. Us Brits are so mature!

I'ts an understatement to say that I'm blown away to find out that I'm the No1 most shared BGT artiste, I'd have been happy with a No2 ! As a man who's not scared of blowing his own trumpet, its important I have correct data to back up my claims and prove that they are not all based on Hot Air! So please can you tell me how you work your stats out?
