When you’ve got it, you’ve got it!
Susan Boyle, you’re my new hero!
I loved how the cameras panned to the crowd and the judges before she sang, showing their contempt and disbelief that she would even try. Obviously because she’s not a perfect 10 and isn’t under 25, apparently she was expected to bomb spectacularly (because looks have everything to do with singing ability, you know). But she proved the old saying “never judge a book by its cover” true with that performance. Haven’t we all been in situations where we’re so worried about being judged by simply walking into a room? This woman didn’t care. She believed she had something special, and went about demonstrating it, regardless of any naysayers or nasty looks. And she made it to the next round.
Here’s a bit of backstory on Boyle. Methinks that whether or not she wins Britain’s Got Talent, she’ll still be offered a recording contract with some big name … if she hasn’t already.
