The headlines are reading, “47-year old Susan Boyle wows Simon Cowell and the world with her rendition of I Dreamed a Dream on Britain’s Got Talent.” Everyone in the audience, not to mention the judges, see her step out on the stage and are immediately thinking she’s going to suck because she’s a rather plain looking woman, she’s not skinny or blonde, and she could probably use some eyebrow plucking and a boob job and a bit of plastic surgery. She’s wearing some simple dress, nothing flashy, she looks like you’ve set next to her at church. What the hell does she think she’s doing up on stage in front of millions of people – how dare she think she’s worthy to take up our time? Oh, well, get ready for a good laugh everyone!
Then she opens her mouth and the voice of an angel escapes. The crowd goes wild. They’re so surprised because we all know that if you’re “ugly” on the outside, you must be ugly on the inside too. Ugly and talentless – that goes hand in hand right? Oh, and she’s OLD – she’s 47 for crying out loud! I have no idea how she got out on stage without her walker. She must’ve been on a day pass from the old folks home.
The whole video has just turned the world topsy turvy for me . . .
