Britains got talent - Susan Boyle - You have to see this!

This is such a beautiful lesson in not judging a book by its cover.

It's worth watching.

watching the clip never gets old. I love it, and I love the reaction on everyone's face. Good for her.

Maybe I'm pregnant or something, because watching that clip makes me want to cry.

No Mishu, it's not cuz you're pregnant. I have tears in my eyes too and I'm definitely not pregnant. That was absolutely AMAZING!! Good for her!!!

It also makes me think how shallow we are in putting an age limitation on American Idol contestants. We can't tolerate anyone who isn't young and attractive.

I was expecting something extraordinary due to your comments, but that just blew me away. One note into her song and I was bawling ::

I would LOVE to see a singer/songwriter or such competition in which the focus is only on actual talent and expressiveness and not on youth, beauty standards, personal style, and so on.

I don't follow stuff like this (don't even have a TV, so how could I..?) but I saw a link to this somewhere and watched it four times in a row.

DH also doesn't care about stuff like this and watched it twice. We were both annoyed by the comment from the first guy that it was the biggest SURPRISE. Why not say it was the best performance or something? Why a surprise? I know we give preference to beautiful people but I honestly had no idea we assumed beauty and voice talent went together; it never occured to me.

Even though I don't have a TV I'd have to be living in a cave to not know who Simon Cowell was, and honestly the look on his face is what got me the most - it was like he was completely smitten, head over heels. I think I heard he kissed someone once; I wonder how it would have been if he had kissed her! (But maybe awkward, I dunno - but interesting to ponder at least).

What a wonderful talent, she just opened her mouth and sang (without a huge effort) and stunned the world.

Definitely NOT pregnant here and I was bawling with chills up my spine!

Soooo amazing!

Incredible. Thanks for the link.

This was amazing. I think however, that her performance told us more about us than about her.

You are so right. Stunning and tear-jearking nonetheless.

I have a TV but probably watch about 1/2 hour of TV a week, if that. But, yeah, I know who Simon is and the basic premise of the show.

I said the same thing to my DH when we watched that clip....I said, "This summer, the headline is going to be 'Simon marries Susan Boyle.'"

That was amazing.

I was going to post this last night and I forgot it. I have to admit when I first saw the beginning of the clip I thought it was going to be another William Huong and was totally shocked and awed by her performance. I hope she wins it all, I hope she has her dreams come true, she deserves it. She's fantastic!

I can't watch this enough, its so sweet and wonderful:

She was so brave, a lamb facing the lions and they couldn't wait to eat her up. But she made them cry and fall breathlessly in love with her and I lost count of all the standing ovations she got! She will never forget that,how wonderful,how very wonderful!

it would have been even more interesting if he kissed her because she's never been kissed before! Hasn't had a first kiss yet! I love her story. She took care of her mother her whole life and she died two years ago. She is still devastated. Her mother always said she should audition for the show because she had a nice voice. Awwww. So she did it for her mom. I love Susan Boyle! I've watched the clip a gazillion times and cry every time.

I would have thought that the judges should have already learned their lesson about pre-judging/cynicism from the Paul Potts thing.

Wow. I'm so happy for her.
