a dream...


This is Susan Boyle, a Scottish woman who was a participant on Britain's Got Talent this week. The audience laughed at her, rolling their eyes at her declaration that she wanted to be a professional singer.

The judges snickered too.

Susan is 47, and until a couple of years ago, cared for her ailing mother until her mum passed away. She joked in her bio that she has "never been kissed".

Two notes into her rendition of I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables, the crowd started cheering. Thirty seconds in and they were on their feet.

The look on Simon & the other judges' faces was simply priceless. You HAVE to watch this.

And have a tissue.

  3. She is sooooo talented. It's unbelievable. This should make us all think about the emphasis we put on outward appearances. I know that it has had an impact on me, and from the looks of the faces in the crowd and on the judges, I think perhaps they learned a lesson too.

  7. That was amazing! I hope she makes it. Like Julia said, it goes to show that we shouldn't judge by appearances - and that it is never too late to try for your dream.

  9. I watched this on youtube and almost had tears in my eyes. A lesson to everyone to never judge a book by its cover.
