Susan Boyle
« on: June 01, 2009, 06:27 PM »
Hi everyone! 
I've been watching on here for comments and am really surprised no one, especially in the UK, has mentioned the just-ended Series 3 of Britain's Got Talent on TV.   Perhaps you're all fed up with the hype but even here in Canada I was really interested and anxious to see how Susan Boyle did.  I think she has an absolutely tremendous voice and I felt truly sorry for the assaults on her image and now she's had to seek refuge for a few days to calm down.  What a shame as far as I'm concerned, and I wondered if any of you had an opinion, pro and/or con?   
I think "Diversity" who won this series are excellent too (and I only wish I had one hundredth of their fabulous energy - LOL),  but their future appearances will likely be limited, when even though Susan Boyle came in second her talent and voice will and can be heard by millions the world over without a TV or being there in person to see a performance.   I also believe that her greatest personal desire was to be able to sing before The Queen, and also to prove in memory of her mother that she "could make it".   She did anyway as far as I'm concerned.   ;D
Good luck, Susan.  I loved your renditions of "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Memory"!  Joyce

Hi, I did feel sorry for Susan Boyle, she is a great singer and will go far, she did get some insults but took them in her stride.Like Simon said he knows she is a well grounded lovely woman...say no more.Diversity,i loved them, they were great.

Can't wait for Susan's CD, though Diversity were very good, you really need to have a theatre or arena to watch them, you can listen to Susan any where. I've been disgusted with the way some newspapers have slagged her off, but then again to some of them talent is having big boobs.

This is tonights news on Susan Boyle,poor lady.

Susan Boyle has been admitted to The Priory suffering from exhaustion.

The Britain's Got Talent runner-up was escorted by paramedics from her hotel just after 6pm yesterday after suffering "an emotional breakdown."

Show bosses became worried after the "spaced out" star began acting strangely.
She has got learning difficulties so it will be even harder for her to cope.

I loved watching BGT and thought julian who played sax very good. I was enthralled by diversity tho'. My daughter who is a big les mis. fan loved susan boyle. I think there was something for everyone. I remember as a child watching sunday night variety acts before bedtime and think we are missing these programmes. I'm sorry show has finished but my daughter is looking forward to big brother.

Personally, I think that all the media attention for Susan Boyle was just a load of publicity. Fair enough, she was good, but so were a lot of the others. Diversity were well deserved winners, and also Flawless and Julian, the saxophonist gave excellent performances. As for the Flatley father and son, well I`ve never seen so much rubbish. I reckon on having a good sense of humour, but just couldn`t find anything to laugh at in their perfomance. The programme was called Britain`s got Talent, and what they did could not count as talent. Anybody could have pranced about like they did .
