Susan Boyle walked onto the stage of ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ and the judges weren’t sure what to expect. She didn’t look like a superstar, she wasn’t dressed in the height of fashion, and she was… quirky. She tells them that one side of her is 47 and people laugh, but they do not laugh with her.
There are people in the audience who roll their eyes at her dream of being a professional singer. That is before she tells everyone she will sing a hard song from Les Miserables, ‘I Dreamed A Dream.’
She barely sings the first few notes and everyone is mesmerized by her voice. It is powerful and clear and beautiful. Susan Boyle sounds how I imagine angels in heaven sound. She blows away the audiences and the judges, leaving everyone shocked.
Piers Morgan says, “That is without a doubt the biggest surprise I have had in three years on this show!” Amanda Holden remarked how cynical they were all being and this was a wake-up call. Finally, Simon said that when she came out on the stage, he knew that they were about to hear something “extraordinary and he was right.”
