britain's got talent: susan boyle singing "i dreamed a dream" from les miserables

last saturday there was a tv show here called "britain's got talent", sort of like the same format like your pop idols competition, but this show invites everyone with whatever talent they think they have, and the winner gets to perform for the queen at the annual royal gala variety show together with other distinguished guests.



like pop idols you see a lot of jokers who overestimated their merits. but please spend 7:07mins of your life to see the clip. i wanted to say sorry to susan boyle for being so cynical, i wanted to say i am really sorry for judging her. to quote from one of the judges amanda holden: it's a priviledge to hear her sing.

she's 47years old and fighting for her dream. tears just well up in my eyes when i rewatched that performance. i hope she wins the competition and sing for the queen.

  5. We have American Idol season 4500 now and I could only wish the semifinalists are half as inspiring as Susan was when she got up on that stage. Brilliant.

  6. I LOVE THAT YOU POSTED THIS!! As much as we write about Beautiful things, it's so great to write and talk about a beautiful PERSON . Wow--what a voice. And you know they were ready to count her out because she was not "glamorous." I love it--I agree with you Joe. I hope she sings for the Queen.
    As Linda McCartney said, "The Light Comes from Within." Go Susan Boyle, I am cheering all the way from Los Angel-esze.

  8. I guess we were all judging her before she even had a chance to show us her talent. That is why we were all moved. Indeed...she really has real talent! Cross our fingers...she won the hearts of so many people. So may she win the competition! cheers for Susan!
