Cheeky Susan Boyle: She Dreams a Dream

Cheeky Susan Boyle: She Dreams a Dream

I Dreamed a Dream (Les Miserables)

The studio audience enjoying Britain’s Got Talent this weekend broke out in laughter when they got their first look at Susan Boyle. The unemployed Scottish woman drew giggles from the judges when she told them her ambition was to be a professional singer. Frumpy, nervous and inching toward late middle age, the dowdy 47 year-old Susan Boyle ended up wowing the judges with her smashing performance in the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent, singing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. No one’s laughing now, because she’s become a Cinderella Diva!

For now Susan Boyle, the middle-aged church volunteer whose soaring performance turned her into the world’s newest instant celebrity, is trying to catch her breath. “All the attention has been quite an upheaval, and she is quite tired,” Miss Boyle’s brother, John, told reporters on Thursday outside her little cottage in tiny, previously unexciting Blackburn, Scotland. “I have taken her away to let her have some peace and quiet before the next round.”

    it is usually all about the “marketable” and “the look”. This woman has what it takes. So she is no Barbra Streisand but she is amazing. You have to give credit where credit is due. Wax the eyebrows and upper lip, sassy hairdo and some makeup. She has a good enough shape so work with that. She should be on her way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why feel she has to be changed? We just witnessed a beautiful performance. I can’t get enough of it. She is a total example to everyone that beauty comes from within and how narrow minded we are when we judge a person from just what we see on the outside. The lady has a wonderful personality, totally comfortable with herself, and a totally natural and untouched gift. I hope she stays true to herself so that we can learn from her. She should be a role model for everyone!!

    The best I have ever seen. I have shared this with everyone I know. I have watched it over and over and this woman is a delight and a breath of fresh air. I totally agree Ginger. Her voice is that of angels. She puts everyone on “American Idol” to shame. I can’t wait to hear more from her. You go girl!
