Britains Got Talent 2009 - Susan Boyle.

This is not about politics, but it will simply blow you away. A 47 year old woman steps up on the UK show Britain's Got Talent and one can feel the audience and the panel getting ready to annihilate her. Especially, when she has the gall to say that she wants to sing for a living and be the next Elaine Paige.

The camera cuts around the audience as the sniggers begin. And then she starts to sing...

Rarely have I watched the screen in more open mouthed amazement than I did here.

This literally moved the hairs on the back of my neck.

It restores your faith in something doesn't it? Maybe TV has trained us to know who the failures are and she blasts away those stereotypes.

It just shows that you can't judge a book by it's cover...

KauaiMark,

It actually shows how much shows like "Britain Has Talent" have turned us all into "look fascists".

We have been trained to see people like Susan Boyle as losers. It was her look alone which led the audience to treat her with such scorn. Great singers don't look like she does.

By God, did she knock back all of our prejudices...
