Susan Boyle

I think that this needs a whole thread for itself, as it is pure awesome.

Re: Susan Boyle

Thanks Natasha I was considering posting this yesterday - it certainly makes you think not to judge a book by it's cover! everyone had written her off just because of the way she looked, society seriously needs to get a grip as everything is purely about image these days

Re: Susan Boyle

She bears an uncanny resemblance to my first infant school teacher when I was 5 so I was spooked more than anything.

Re: Susan Boyle

I also watched it yesterday and wondered how someone with a voice like that has not been discovered somewhere. It is a great story and I wish her well.

I have a mental picture, though, of her singing every day at home to an audience of her 100 cats...

I have watched it three times and each time it makes me cry. Well done to her for having the guts to stand up in front of all those people and sing her heart out. So nice to see such a huge reaction and Im sure that audience were pretty ashamed of themselves for their initial response to her.

Hope she wins it!

I watched her SemiFinal 1 performance and frankly it could have been better. Maybe the stress is getting to her though but to cut a CD she would have to improve on that and put more expression into her art.

I agree. The first line and a few notes here and there sounded almost off-key. Must be the nerves!

Re: Susan Boyle

I wonder how many people giving their opinions on this have actually been on a stage and performed in front of several thousand people ?

Re: Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle rushed to clinic

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20090601/...c-ea4616c.html

Television company talkbackThames has released a statement offering her "ongoing support" amid newspaper reports that she had run amok backstage after her loss, shouting: "I hate this show."

I think the honeymoon with the media is over for her. This coming week they'll be ripping her apart and I'm betting there's a few juicy stories to come out.
