Oh Susan - every now and then the most cynical of us are tossed flat by a truly amazing person who has a supreme talent or gift we were not aware of. I have never seen Simon Cowell " knocked out" but is was clear that his condescending remarks and patronizing body language was easily read as "here is a silly old woman from Scotland,(?) in a horrid dress, bad hair, nervous as all get out, and not speaking "the Queen's " English. And then she sang. And now the world knows. Susan Boyle has passion and a real set of pipes. She is an angel with a personality just waiting to bust open. i worry that the make-over will do her in, but I send white magic her way, every time she sings. A true treat for us all.
