Susan Boyle blows the Britain's Got Talent 2009 judges away in!

Susan Boyle, 48, from West Lothian stunned the judges on Britain's Got Talent singing 'I Dreamed A Dream' from Les Miserables. Her YouTube video "I Dreamed a Dream" has now been watched over 11 million times in little more than four days.

See the full version Susan Boyle - Britains Got Talent.

I've repeated this video more than 10 times and still get the heebies every time she starts singing. What a totally honest and pure reaction she got from everyone. I hope she comes to the Philippines.

What is amazing with her performance is that she collectively put that audience in their places by teaching them never judge a book by its cover. They deserve everything good and wonderful that her heart and voice will bring to them.

Truly, angels come in all shapes and sizes. Thank the Heavens for Susan. She has become an inspiration to all.

Ladies & Gentlemen, we have a winner....Susan Boyle!

I wish her every luck in the world, but I don't think she needs it.

Parang si Paul Potts noon! Galing! Sa show business dito sa atin bihira mangyari ito dahil sa atin kino-consider lagi ang hitsura. I don't know if you agree with me.

Aethen said...

She will be the next Paul Potts. Her performance was stunning and inspiring.

The talent searches in the Philippines usually look for face factor than talent. Charisma to attract audience is more powerful tool than an appreciated talent.

@Lucas

There is an innocence that emanates from her that makes you love her. Her voice is so amazing, it makes you want to cry. A lot of people fell in love with her, and Simon was one of hem. I'm sure she has a long way to go Susan.

Apir, Lucas!

Aethen said...

@Allen

Yep she's simple true and amazing. :D

marco said...

i saw the video.. its great! thanks for posting

Aethen said...

Yeah! She's really cool.

lucas said...

i have a feeling she'd make it through the finals...ngayon pa lang...she's already touching million hearts even beyond the boarders of britain. ahehe!

May Aguilar said...

Yes, Susan Boyle has become an inspiration. In the future, I will definitely get copies of her albums. I, too, hope she comes to the Philippines.

Aethen said...

@Lucas

The world loves her. She takes a glorious revenge at a bullying, arrogant audience, just by shining her bright light and showing her great talent without inhibition. What a truly brave woman!

She'll make it to the finals, Lucas, for sure. :D

Aethen said...

@Te May

Breath-taking! She did make that audience rock! shame on all of who judged the book by its cover! May her Dream Come True! i`m sure it will.If she'll come to the Philippines, I will surely be there in her performance.

olan said...

INDEED, i have to agree with the Judges, this is the most surprising moment not just in Britain's Got Talent but i believed in all Talent Search Shows. Indeed, a wake up call that one can't be judge by the looks alone, it has to be what one can offer and what one can show just like Susan Boyle!

Aethen said...

She is a gifted and talented lady, kuya Olan. She was hidden in an unknown village. Yet, when she sang, she was like the rays of the sun that shown around the world. Real beauty is found inside your heart and not the outside physical appearance. :D

the donG said...

magaling talaga siya. i agree. never judge a book by its cover.

quincyjohn said...

what i love the most was the reactions...

almost all of them were blown..

Aethen said...

apir kuya dong and quincy! Go Susan!

triZzZ said...

ang galing ni susan boyle!

stunning performance! i had goosebumps watching her performance. Sana talaga maappreciate din ng Filipinos yung mga ganung talents. Kasi dito face value pinapairal eh.
Sad.

i really hope she wins.

Lantaw said...

I can't stop listening to her sa YouTube! Galing nya!

aethen said...

@Trizz

Talents with face value are still marketable nowadays, TrizzZ, that's why they still favor such talents here in the Philippines. That is part of thier criteria.

Re: Susan Boyle, I hope that her performance was not staged. hehe.

Aethen said...

@Lantaw

Kuya, same here. I keep on repeating her video in youtube. Just inspiring.

Bryan said...

There are many factors why she became a hit suddenly. Aside from pure talent, it is her standing in society (a spinster, old-age) that made the audience wow. Her talent is something unexpected to come from her.

soiebeans said...

amazing. thanks for leading me to that video. after all, fair si Lord. weh. hehe

stan said...

it's been awhile. how's things w u?

heard so much abt her on talkshows. Will dl the file and watch it after work - 5 hrs later! :P

Aethen said...

@Bryan,

She's simply so touching. It's touching cause she is decent human-being and has Soul.

Lovely.

aethen said...

@Beans,

Yeah, the Lord is always fair. She's an angle. Truly, angels come in all shapes and sizes. Haha.

Aethen said...

@Stan,

Hey, long time no hear from you my friend. Hope you'll see and hear him see on youtube. Susan Boyle was like listening to an angle. You take care always, Stan. :D

roll.e said...

Hi, Mark! Got a new blog--and a new monicker: http://roll-e.blogspot.com/

Don't forget to link me. :-)

Saw the Susan Boyle video. Yeah, she really has an angelic voice, but I guess she's overrated. I mean, she deserves a 9, but people give her a 10 because they give so much fuss about her (witch-like)looks.

Well, this is just me giving my two cents' worth. Study well, there!

P.S. Now you can visit me in the place where, as I told you before, I will nail you to the cross. Hahaha. You know what I mean.

Aethen said...

Hey Rolly,

What's with the avatar - Joker?

I'll be going home this May 21 sa Mindanao, are you in the island? Hope to see you for a tagay session. hahaha.

Yes, I think she is overrated too but she has a real talent also. I wish her to win.

cool.

Louis Dizon said...

Yeah, I watched this. She was really good. At first, I thought she was going to do some horrific exhibition but then she blew me away with her voice. I watched the video several times and I ended up coming late at work. LOL.

Aethen said...

@Rolly

Study well? Huhu. I lost motivation to pursue my masters. grad school is tiring and toxic. I want to go back in Mindanao to live a simple life. after all, I don't need money naman because I am content and happy to what I have right now (Si mark ba nagsasabi nito?). Haha. Siguro napapagod lang ako pero don't worry masaya pa namana ako.

Oi, pupunta ako sa Cebu this June 11-14, see you. Libre mo ako hap!

Sige link kita! same number mo?

Amping dira!

Aethen said...

@Loius Dizon


You should blame Susan for your being late. Hahaha. She is for sure a great talent that Britain has.

You are in the iblog5, right? I did not see you there. I visited your site too, good read.


Apir!

roll-e said...

I'm tired of being Batman. LOL.

Got a new number. Damo na bi stalker sa dati--kag gapanukot utang. LOL. I'll text you.

Paytz, kadto di. Damo di taga-Marbel.

You find your master's tiring and toxic? Well, so long as it's what you want, go for it. Indeed, who needs money? LOL.

Aethen said...

If you are tired of being Batman, ako man, am killing my self by being Superman (feeling kasi kayang gawin ang lahat). sigh.

Sige give me your new number para matext kita when am there sa Cebu. dapat magkita gid ta ha! bantay ka lang. LOL.

Yes, am tired and intoxicated by attending to the graduate school. I juggled it kasi with work both in full time basis.

Amping dira ah! Libre mo ako sa June hap :P

Elsie said...

She is more amazing than she idolized

Aethen said...

@Elsie

maybe that is simply her.
