There wasn't a dry eye in the house when tenor Paul Potts sang Nessun Dorma for his audition on Simon Cowell's UK show, Britain's Got Talent. "A frog that will turn into a prince,'' predicted judge Amanda Holden, and so it has come to pass. The audition is one of the most popular clips on YouTube, Potts' debut album One Chance has sold millions, and the former cell phone salesman from Wales starts his first U.S. tour in Florida. He performs at 8 p.m. Sunday at Tampa Theatre, 711 N Franklin St., Tampa. $36, $46. (813) 274-8981.
