Susan Boyle seemed an unlikely candidate on “Britain’s Got Talent,” but her dramatic performance on the reality competition show captured the hearts and imagination of viewers who watched her locally and on millions more on YouTube.
In fact, the clip still makes people cry including my mother. If you’re one of few who haven’t checked out the “Britain’s got talent” performance.
Boyle is frumpy, never-been-kissed and unemployed. The Millionaire Matchmaker has even offered to do a makeover for her..
The goofy music played over her introduction reflects how the judges, hosts, studio audience and even viewers like us did not take her seriously.
They all expected a ridiculous rendition of a song that’s far below her grandiose, delusional perception of her talents.
But Carumba were we all wrong.. As soon as she began “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables, everyone was shocked.
You can see, hear and feel the ripple of surprise and delight in the audience. Even the infamous sourpuss Simon made a goofy joke and cracked a smile or in his case smirk..
It’s moving. In a sense, she has nothing except the aforementioned dream. And that dream might just become a reality.
