Susan Boyle – Britain’s Got Talent 2009 Episode 1 – Saturday 11th April
This clip is actually from the weekend, but I only found it yesterday and am so desperate to share it with you all. Bare with me and the long ass clip, but this is one of about, um, one things that I have watched online in a long while that actually brought a tear to my eye. Seriously.
Who is the person responsible for smelting the stony cold heart of the Editor of AG.com you ask, well it is a 47-year-old woman who appeared on UK talent show, Britain’s Got Talent.
[Susan Boyle is] a 47 years old and she’s unemployed and she’s never been kissed. But she’s never given up on her dream of being a professional singer.
Dlisted notes that she hasn’t sung in the two years since her mother died. And she clearly has no idea how gifted she is, as she seems genuinely unaware of her talent.
Boyle is a classic example of how, to be fair, you can look like one hot mess and still have a bitchin’ set of pipes. So, all you wh*res in the charts right now, watch your backs and let it be known, being enemies with your stylist/ hairbrush/ toofsbrush is no excuse for not killin’ like ol’ Boyle does, above.
Skip to 1 min 45 seconds in to watch. Trust me, it’s worth it.
