It does not seem as if many people are talking about Susan Boyle, yet. Maybe it is one of those topics, you know, that seems like it is set up for us to talk about which in turn makes everyone not want to talk about it. Like a National Day of Recognition or something. I read over at Joan Kelly’s once, how she is annoyed at times when it feels like she is being told when and what to celebrate or recognize. I agree, in a way it feels so contrived, as if it is an order from our parents.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed Boyle’s performance, and I liked how Simon and company got their faces cracked with their prejudices. One thing I can say is go Britain’s Got Talent 2009 with the age thing. I know there are some people who get mad when someone dares to dis America, but come on, on the American Idol the age limit is 29 (if I’m not mistaken), so what is that saying right there. I am glad a 47-year-old (did she say she has never been kissed? If so, are we talking about a real live spinster? With a cat! Go Susan, Go Susan!) is allowed to compete.
Anyway, it has been difficult to find a link that allows embedding, so I shall just give you a link.
ETA: Now it seems CNN and other U.S outlets have picked up on the story, so, my opening line no longer makes sense.
