Britain's Got Talent final: Simon Cowell to sign Jonathan Antoine?

Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Simon Cowell is set to sign Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli regardless of whether or not they win tonight's show.

According to The Sun, Simon reckons that the operatic pair can be as big as 2009 runner up Susan Boyle, who is expected to perform on tonight's final.

“Simon knows they will sell a huge number of records. They could even go on to beat Susan Boyle — and she’s sold millions," a source told the newspaper.

The pair already have time in the studio booked, and could have their debut album out by Christmas.

A supposed friend of Simon's told the tabloid: “This time last year he was faced with the not-particularly exciting prospect of having to sell Jai McDowall records. He was in a funk. But this year his excitement levels are off the scale.

“He’s watched as Jonathan and Charlotte have taken the country by storm. He knows that opera is a big seller, especially if people like the person singing it.”

Jonathan and Charlotte are the favourites to win the show tonight, when it starts at 7:30PM on ITV1.
