Susan Boyle Amazes Britain's Got Talent!


By Chance - Posted on 14 April 2009

Simon Cowell is stunned.  

Just saw that video on AC360 and wanted to share this wonderful performance with all here.  It is a real tear producer.   

Susan Boyle (47) appeared on Britain's Got Talent and stunned the audience and judges with her talent.  Just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a package by it's outward appearance.

From EW PopWatch:

Boyle, the frumpy, middle-aged British lady who marched out on the stage of the national TV show Britain’s Got Talent this past weekend. She bided her time through the judgmental hoots and snickers of the studio audience and judges (headed by international snickerer-in-chief Simon Cowell). She sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. And she brought a worldwide audience to their feet -- to her feet -- with the grandeur of her voice.   

I saw that yesterday.  Nothing short of astounding...

The only reason she needed the microphone is because of the screaming crowd.

There's a reason why the expression isn't "It ain't over until the skinny lady sings"; some of the most powerful voices in opera come from people who would have otherwise been rejected by the pop music industry as unpresentable.

It's sad that we've reached a point where 'government service' is a dirty word... If we're the greatest country on earth, maybe we can have the greatest government.

That was beyond amazing.  Most of you may be too young, but I kept thinking of a British Kate Smith. 

I have to watch that one again.........

!!Applause!!

That took a lot of moxie.

That's what they mean when they say "Don't judge a book by it's cover."

If nothing else, the look of total astonishment on Simon Cowell's face (at 2:00) makes the whole clip worth watching.

This reminds me of the contestant in the first season of Britain's Got Talent, Paul Potts:

Looks like they found another one! 

 

Here's his final performance for the show:

Thank you MTD, I love opera music. That was beautiful. I'm so happy Paul went on to be very successful.

I just heard her say she's never been kissed!

She seems so sweet. 

What an  incredibly beautiful voice!  It made me cry the first time I saw it...

What a diamond in the rough:)

What a shame the judgements we make just by someone's beauty or lack thereof.

Susan Boyle appeared on CBS's The Early Show.
