13. TV talent show launches operatic superstar
It was the decade that saw the rise of the TV Talent show. One such show, Britain's Got Talent, launched in June 2007 saw former phone salesman and tenor Paul Pott's scoop the £100,000 cash prize and win the chance to perform Nessum Dorma before the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. His debut album ‘One Chance’ topped the charts in 13 countries and notched up 27 platinum records.
