Has it really been that long?

Remember Susan Boyle’s appearance on “Britain’s Got Talent” when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream”? I’d have guessed it was maybe two years ago. It’s actually been almost six years (April 11, 2009). Where’d those six years go?? Anyway, I enjoyed seeing it again. Hope you do too.

I wrote about it at the time:

It’s already viral. That doesn’t matter. It’s sappy, it’s corny, it’s British. So what. … Doesn’t change a thing. “Britain’s Got Talent” indeed. I started crying half way though it. Never, never, never, NEVER judge a book by its cover. Never.

And yes, I just cried all over again.


  1. She was in KC in Oct, same beautiful voice and same shy lady we met in that video clip. Could tell she was on script with her “between the songs” talking, yet evenso, her Scottish accent and inflections were genuine and i am happy to have gone. So much bravery on her part to push through the stress and figure out how to enjoy performing on an international scale. Les Mis is one of my favorite stage musicals (not the movie version) and her interpretation, albeit omitting a verse, could stand against any of the B’way Fantines. I always enjoy watching the expressions on those smug faces who had written her off before her first note. Thanks for bringing her back for the evening!

  2. Just goes to show eh? I loved the stunned looks that came over the judges smug faces after the first few words were out of her mouth. They had her pegged alright didn’t they? Anyway, thanks for the “follow.” Barking shall always endeavor to inform, anger, and amuse. continue…

Now that I've had my say ...
