I saw that earlier today and went all goosebumpy. How wonderful to see a moment when someone's whole life changes! Beautiful.

Remember this guy? It happened to him too.

I watched Susan Boyle's performance and had tears in my eyes by the time she finished. It was magnificent. She hopes to sing for the Queen and I do believe it will happen for her.

Oh wow...I saw her on Fox News, then got an email with the YouTube link for her performance.  OMG, she is Awesome!  I was clapping, cheering, crying, it so touched my heart.  :jumpy:
 
As the old saying goes: Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover, which obviously the audience and judges did BEFORE Susan sang.  Then, they were awestruck by her magnificent voice, giving her a standing ovation! Beautiful!  She is a winner! 

I loved watching Simon's skeptical face as it suddenly switched from doubt to a glowing smiling face of approval!  :wohoo:

Good Luck, Susan!  Hope you win the contest.  :jumpy:

It really is. she is something special.

Another song has come to light, she sang "Cry Me A River" for a charity CD in 1999.  The visuals are from her performance on Britain's Got Talent but the song is from the 1999 CD and beautiful. The UK's Daily Mirror found one of the CDs and posted a video with the song, only 1000 CD's were produced. There will be more in the future I'm certain.

Here is a link to a YouTube version.

I think "Cry Me a River" is even better than her Britain's Got Talent audition.  :tup:  Her voice is beautiful!

AWWW... Susan Boyle failed to win "Britains Got Talent" but she is a winner!


Shocker! Susan Boyle Don't Got Talent

Today 1:50 PM PDT by Megan Masters

She "Dreamed a Dream," but unfortunately it wasn't enough.

Susan Boyle, the YouTube sensation and Britain's Got Talent hands-down favorite, took second-place in Saturday's finale, falling short to a dance troupe called Diversity.

Boyle's runner-up placement came to the shock of many, including all three judges, who during her final performance hailed her as the best talent to grace the stage.

Following Boyle's swan song, Piers Morgan couldn't hold back, saying, "I'm not supposed to favor anyone, I should be impartial, but you know what, forget it. That was the greatest performance I've seen in Britain's Got Talent history. You should win this competition. I loved it!"

Judge Amanda Holden agreed: "I have never heard such powerful, confident vocals." She even went as far as calling out America's favorite critic, Simon Cowell. "And can I just say, Simon had a tear in his eye and I've never seen that before."

And as far as Cowell was concerned, the entire competition paled in comparison to Boyle's inspirational journey. Said Cowell, "Win or lose, you had the guts to come back here tonight, face your critics, and you beat them. You can walk away from this with your head held high Susan. I absolutely adore you."

Boyle's final appearance awed the crowd with a repeat performance of the Les Miserables classic that made her a household name. The Scottish import belted out "I Dreamed a Dream," this time with extra help from her shimmery floor length gown and the twinkling stage décor in the background. Also noticeably different from previous performances? The poise and confidence exuded by Boyle.

Before the winner was announced, Boyle gracefully expressed her gratitude to everyone involved in her rise to the top. "I want to thank the people for all the support they've given me, especially the people back home. Thank you very much."

And after a week of intense scrutiny and distress, Boyle made it known that she was grateful for the experience. "[It was] well worth it, well worth it."

Naysayer's be damned, Boyle signed off with what has become her signature, a playful hip shake. Susan will always be first place in our hearts.

The fact that she didn't win, just made people lose interest in BGT? (:;)

Oh nooooo....  :'( :'( :'(

But no matter what, I agree with Simon that she is a lovely person who achieved something remarkable. I hope some doors will open for her now! A wonderful, great performance, thanks for bringing it here!
