Simon Cowell thinks Jonathan and Charlotte sound "much better" now than they did on 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The music mogul is delighted with the TV show runners-up's debut album 'Together' and things the record shows they are more than worthy of their success.
In a scene from documentary 'Jonathan and Charlotte' where Simon meets with the duo for the first time since their appearance on the show, he says: "They sound better on this record than they did on the show.
"They don't sound like competition winners making a record, they sound like proper singers."
In the documentary - which airs on ITV1 tonight (02.11.12), the operatic duo travel through Europe to meet with their idols, receiving master-classes from Lucianno Pavarotti's vocal coach Leone Magiera and world-famous tenor Rolanda Villazon.
The pair also visited Pavarotti's grave to sign a book of condolences.
Jonathan says: "In spite of him being gone the light that was him still shines brightly."
