WTF? Susan Boyle loses “Britain’s Got Talent”
Something’s screwy with these talent shows. First Adam Lambert, clearly the best talent, loses American Idol to Kris Allen in a shocking upset. Then a week later, Susan Boyle finishes as runner up on Britain’s Got Talent despite a rousing performance of I Dreamed a Dream in the final.
Like Adam, Miss Boyle will be a much bigger star than whoever did win but you have to start to question the credibility of the whole thing. Susan is still such a wonderful success story, a woman in her late 40s who sings like a dream but until about a month ago, only her family and small Scottish town knew it!
Now the world knows it and I hope she has a great ride in showbiz if that’s what she still wants. I know I’d buy any CD she records!
Oh, for the record, the dance group Diversity won the British talent show.
Below is video of Susan’s performance in the finale:
