By now you've probably already seen the video of Susan Boyle performing on You've Got Talent. If not, click here.
My husband came home the other day and told me I had to watch the video. I did, and I cried.
I liked her immediately because her personality was terrific. And I was angered in particular by the one girl in the audience that they panned in on, when Susan said she wanted to be like Elaine Paige -- rolling her eyes and making a face. How dare she? It takes guts to get up on that stage, whether you have talent or not, and everyone has dreams, no matter what a person looks like or what their talent may BE. And the woman was humble, too -- did you see her reactionto the judges at the end? She didn't think they would praise her that way.
It said she was unemployed -- I hope this show brings her terrific offers!
(BTW, if you don't know who Elaine Paige is, she's HUGE in the musical theater business.)
