Simon Advises Susan Boyle to Focus on the Competition Amid Distractions


Simon Cowell expressed embarrassment over his initial reaction to Susan Boyle during her audition in Britain”s Got Talent.  He wasn’t expecting someone who looked like her to be able to sing the way she did.  However, he warned that she still had work to do before winning, despite her increasing popularity.  With all the stories about the hair, the eyebrows, and her unmarried life, it may stray the 47-year old from winning the competition.

Boyle has 4 weeks to prepare for the biggest night of her life.  Cowell suggests that Boyle prepare for the semi-finals and focus on her song and come back stronger singing as the person she is, not the person people want her to be.

Susan Boyle Becomes Singing Sensation

After Susan Boyle caught the attention of judges in Britain’s Got Talent (including Simon Cowell) and the audience, she has become the newest singing sensation. She now has talk show interviews scheduled for CNN, Larry King Live, and even rumors of her being in Oprah. What endeared her to so many people? I believe its the astounding voice coming out of a person who looks so ordinary you wouldn’t even look at her twice. She is so simple that she even refused a physical makeover offered to her. Susan claims she doesn’t want to change and hopes that people will accept her for what she is.

Following hundreds of thousands watching her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” in the web, a recording she made 10 years ago for a charity CD now hits the web. Her haunting rendition of the blues standard “Cry Me A River” (not the Justin Timberlake song) is now all over the web and everyone is curious to listen to it. Here is the song for everyone to enjoy.

Susan Boyle Dreamed a Dream

I’ve been looking around for something to entertain my readers today and luckily opened an email sent by my cousin. It was a video of a 47-year old woman singing in Britain’s Got Talent. After watching it, Susan Boyle did make my day. Watch it first before I give my opinion.

What were you thinking before she opened her mouth to sing? Shame on you. Actually, shame on all of us. That was another one of life’s lessons I will never forget. There should be nothing to keep us from dreaming. Way to go Susan!
