Susan Boyle, the 47-year-old who wowed the judges and audience on Britain’s Got Talent, has now made her way across the pond to the shores of the United States.
Now that she has taken Britain and the Internet by storm, it’s time for the United States as a whole to get a taste of Ms. Boyle and her amazing singing voice. When she appeared on The Early Show on CBS this morning (my original repoort was for NBC The Today Show, and I apologize as I was given faulty info from the Orlando Sentinel), we got at least a little bit more of an idea of what the woman is about than “sad sack”-type moments we got in the original video that was set to “ha ha, look at her” music.
Sadly Ms. Boyle sings the same song she did on the original show, but I have a feeling that may be a ploy by the producers of Britain’s Got Talent. When she’s asked what she will sing in her second performance in the contest, she simply states that you’ll have to tune in and see. (well, if you’re in the UK you can, those of us in the USA will have to rely on online videos)
Overall it’s a worthwhile video as you get to see a bit of her town, what the locals think of her, find out a bit more about her life, and, of course, hear her sing a bit. Check it out below, I have no clue if this will play for visitors outside of the USA, sorry if it doesn’t. Followed by that is an interview with Broadway legend Patti Lupone, who was the original singer of “I Dreamed A Dream”, and her thoughts on Ms. Boyle’s performance.
