Susan Boyle – Singer – Britains Got Talent 2009
I don’t do reality TV, and it’s not just snobbery, I genuinely don’t enjoy it.
Every year I get roped into watching the X-Factor final, occasionally I like the person who wins, but it’s also my chance to back and see the criminally bad from the first few episodes. I mean, come on, everything between the delusional and the final three is pointless, right?
So when I saw this linked on a musicals comm I use on LJ, I’ll be honest and say I only clicked because I’m in bed sick and have literally nothing else to do.
Watch the clip, stick with it past the cringeworthy intro stuff that these shows are built on.
This is a lesson in confounding expectations, and since I’m one of the most judgemental people ever, think how it affected me.
Also, well done Susan Boyle for namechecking Elaine Paige. That’s going to win me over every time.
