Susan Boyle? - April 15th 2009, 11:08 PM

Never heard of her? Go figure. She's pretty much unheard of until now, especially in the U.S.

Our friends in the U.K. might know her a bit better now. She's the latest star of Britain's Got Talent.

Her audition was at first met with skepticism and cynicism, and you could almost feel the condescension ooze from Simon Cowell's voice.

Talk about a turnaround. Within the first line of the song I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, she had the entire audience applauding for her.

Not only did she get three yeses from the judges, her YouTube video has already gotten 7 million views since April 11. Check it out.

I don't get emotional over much, I'm usually pretty sarcastic about most stuff. This made my eyes water though.

Deep down, I really wanted her to fail, just for the lolfactor.
But I'm really glad she proved everyone wrong.

I actually don't watch Britain's Got Talent, I saw a news article about it on MSN.

Lol I just saw that video about 10 minutes ago and wondered if anyone had already posted it on TH. xD

She can definitely sing, and I LOVED the look on Simon Cowell's face ... PRICELESS.
She needs to work on her image though if she wants to be the next Elaine Page (whoever that is). Her little booty-shaking before she starting singing was like "wtf?".

Simon got pwned.

She's got an extraordinary voice. I hope her talent doesn't go wasted any longer.

She's amazing. Just goes to show that outside beauty holds a bery small candle to inner beauty.


She whispered to her own reflection "I will be strong."

Her audition reminded me of Paul Potts (the winner of BGT 2 years ago), so I guess she's going to get far int he competition.

Bless that little lady

The look on the judges' faces when she started singing was priceless and you could just tell they weren't expecting that. I was actually looking at the computer when she was on so I only heard her voice at the time. I watched the re-run and it showed people in the audience laughing at her when she said she wanted to be like Elaine Page. It just goes to show how most people judge people by how they look these days.

I see the John Sergeant effect coming into play soon though (that's a term I've just made up based on Sergeant's crappy performance in strictly come dancing yet the audience always voted him to stay so he quit before it was a farce)

I don't watch that show, but wow. I know I'd have been one of the people laughing; just wow.

Lee, I don't think you can say that people will be voting for her despite a crappy performance, her performance was anything but crappy.

I did not mean it as though she was crappy, it was more how a poor, yet woefully entertaining performer may edge her out
