Susan Boyle: Striking a blow for dowdy, unemployed, middle-aged women everywhere


I think that I might be one of the last people on earth to see and hear about this, but in case I am not, please enjoy a clip of Susan Boyle completely destroying the minds of a hooting auditorium of skeptics on the show, “Britain’s Got Talent.” Turn the audio waaaaayyyy up, after clicking on her name and linking up with her performance.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this thing already, completely slackjawed. (It’s a comfort to see professional curmudgeons like Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell looking the same way.)

Apparently, I am not alone. As of 11 pm last night Youtube had registered a total 10,157,411 hits of her clips.

BBC News online ran a short but engrossing story on the poised little Scotswoman after she appeared on the show.



  1. Middle aged woman conquers the world in 4 seconds!

    (it’s exactly 4 seconds from her first note to Simon’s raised eyebrow)

    Her performance makes you want to go out and do something extraordinary.

    Utterly satisfying.
