Bishop Michael Curry Appears On 'Britain's Got Talent' Final With Blessing For Contestants
Bishop Michael Curry - yup, the dude that blew us all away with his address at Harry and Meghan's wedding - returned to British TV screens this evening, especially for the final of Britain's Got Talent:
You'll remember that Curry's rousing speech was one of the biggest highlights from the recent royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Forget the dress, the cake, and the celebrity guests - it was Curry who absolutely stole the show, blowing the roof off of St George's Chapel in Windsor to single-handedly prove that not all posh people have boring, stuffy weddings.
It wasn't just the content of what he was saying that took everyone's breath away, he also provided some great spectacle with his energetic delivery.
Because of that, he was even roped in for the final of Britain's Got Talent tonight - because now that we've seen him in action there really wasn't anyone more suited for the job, was there?
In the video made especially for the show's finale, Curry said: "Hello Britain's Got Talent. It is a joy to bring you these greetings, to all of the contestants, to the judges, to the audience, to all who make this possible.
"Thank you for what you are doing, thank you to the contestants who offer yourselves and share your talent and your gifts with the rest of us, you actually help to bring some joy and happiness.
"So, thank you, God bless you, God keep you and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love."
What a guy.
In his moving 14-minute address at Harry and Meghan's big day, Curry started with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr, telling the congregation: "We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world."
He continued: "Think and imagine a world where love is the way."
