haha honestly I near teared up
Perhaps the British version of the show is better than the American version. Connie's very cute and talented, but I think she butchered the song. I think she's too young, but maybe she'll do better when she's seven. Pol Pot, although talented enough, picked a singing style that requires more talent than he has.Indeed most are horrible, but have you seen these contestants?
Luckily, I'm not a complete cynic, but ... I'd suspect that there was a scripted aspect to the performance on the part of the judges and the show, in that the producers must have screened these people and knew full well that she has a talented voice, (she definitely has a rich and soulful voice), and they simply played it with the back stage Dumb and Dumber guys being in on the thing.
I almost wonder if she exaggerated her appearance to seem worse just to make a point.
But, her attitude and their surprising looks looked fake to me :(
I don't think the judges are good enough actors to fake it, but they almost certainly were set up. Unlike with American Idol, the judges don't do the initial screening in that show (i think).First thing comes to my mind whenever I watch these things :rofl:. I guess that's how they run their business.
Her voice was beautiful without doubt. But, her attitude and their surprising looks looked fake to me :(
Why are we so shocked when "ugly" women can do things, rather than sitting at home weeping and wishing they were somebody else? Men are allowed to be ugly and talented. But a woman has to have the bright, empty beauty of a toy - or get off the screen. We don't want to look at you. Except on the news, where you can weep because some awful personal tragedy has befallen you.
Susan will probably win Britain's Got Talent. She will be the little munter that could sing, served up for the British public every Saturday night. Look! It's "ugly"! It sings! And I know that we think that this will make us better people. But Susan Boyle will be the freakish exception that makes the rule. By raising this Susan up, we will forgive ourselves for grinding every other Susan into the dust. It will be a very partial and poisoned redemption. Because Britain's Got Malice. Sing, Susan, sing - to an ugly crowd that doesn't deserve you.
