Thrilling!

This is completely off the topic of books and readind but I don't care. I absolutely had to post the link to Susan Boyle singing I Dreamed a Dream on Britain's Got Talent, in case there any of you have missed it. I wouldn't want you to be deprived of the pleasure of watching this video.

Susan stunned the judges and audience with her song - it's so incredible to see a regular person do so well and realise her dream. I am absolutely thrilled for her.

While you're at it, watch this video as well - it's of Paul Potts singing opera on this same show, just in a previous season. Absolutely amazing.

Seriously - both their performances are thrilling. And it's an extra treat to see the change the attitudes of both the stuck-up beautiful judges and of most of the audience.

These brought tears to me eyes and somehow made me feel hopeful about the world.

Lezlie - I didn't realise she made it over to the US already! Wow!

Trish - you should, she has a lovely voice. :-)

Joanna ~ She is all over the internet. You couldn't ignore her if you wanted to. I hope she doesn't end up with reporters camped out at her house making her life miserable. We don't need her shaving her head and going all Britney Spears on us. :-)

Hmmm... somehow I don't think a shaved head would be a good look for her! :-)

Me neither. I hope she gets to stay just the way she is!
