daruiz - The blonde Judge was kindof a bitch, why did she stand up during the performance? Just needed to make sure the camera`s showed her a little more? Anyways she was great and I hope that voice gets her somewhere

Or maybe she was just so impressed she pulled off the hard part of the song? Dick.

her personality REALLY annoyed me.

I mean, she was really amazing and all, and deserves to win and go on to great things. Especially so she can prove that beauty is only skin deep.

But she was just so annoying.

Haha, the same bitches in the audience that were making faces and laughing at her were clapping with her when she showed them her voice.

I think she`s got the heart and the voice to succeed... that is, if superficiality doesn`t get in the way.

After seeing Paul Potts and Her, it makes the show, "Britain`s Got Talent" feel like I`m getting hustled at a pool hall. You look at them and think, "wow I know this is going to be a huge pile of suck" and then you get blown away.

When I actually watched this, i said to the mrs that she was gonna be one of those paul potts ppl. i just KNEW she was gonna throw out a performance like that, and ill be honest, i felt sorry for her. she has talent like that and yet the society that we live in just shows that because people judge on looks and personality, she hasnt yet made it in the world. she is outstanding. and i hope to god she wins it to show all the belittling people out there that THEY are the small ones. good luck to her. she deserves it.

To heck with looks! A true artist can present what they have and make it beautiful. You don`t have to have all that stupid `sex appeal` that`s so prominent. This woman here is far more entertaining than some skanky ho bag that can barely carry a tune shaking it on stage.

I thought she was going to be rubbish, not because of how she looked, but on Britain`s got talent, there`s always an old-ish nutter-y person who goes on and thinks that the`re amazing, and end up being poo. I thought she was going to be one of them, but she was absolutley fantastic.

one thing i realized with time is that there are a lot of us... there are a lot of really good singers out there. the idea that it`s rare and can`t be learned (by most) is just a fable... having good pipes isn`t all you need to be a star, but it`s enough to give something to the people around you. i`m glad she got the response that she did.

"BS it was a lip sync you all just got punked"

I get the feeling you have never seen a sound system before. If she had been lip syncing the first thing they would have noticed was nothing comeing throuhg her mic. Then they would have let the judges know and disqualified her. This is really easy to catch, esp. when you provide the equipment to be used.

Shellie84--If I`ve only learned one thing here, whenever somebody offers valid criticism they`re branded "jealous" or "douchebag", and then the personal attacks on their own skill begin. If a person had to have greater skill than the person being criticized, then movie and book critics wouldn`t exist.

For all--I`ll add that I thought she was amazing.

What I thought was hilarious was when she told the audience and the judges she was 47, and everyone, even Simon, was like "Who the hell is this old crone? And why does she want to become a singer?" And then she proceeds to blow everyone away with her singing voice that cannot be properly described with mere words.

Oh bluhr, let`s not play the "expert" game. At the tender age of 13-17, I very much doubt your vocal prowess and expertise.

She wasn`t perfect, but she was leagues better than the average singer and leagues better than the average choral student. With a little voice training, she`ll be unstoppable.

But, technically, she wasn`t that great. She had too much vibrato and cheated on a LOT of notes in that song which obviously weren`t in her register.
Also, she picked the wrong song. Her voice didn`t suit that song. If you look up how it`s MEANT to be done, you`ll see what I mean.

I`ll agree that her technique wasn`t anywhere near what it might become with training, but she`s definitely better than your average.

Saying that she put in too much vibrato is like saying the colours in a painting are too bright: some might call it garish, but others would call it vibrant - she`s the artist of her own imagining of the song.

Lastly, I definitely wouldn`t call what she did to the top notes `cheating`. They sounded a bit bare, but again that`s just a matter of needing technical training and expanding her range.
Take her for what she is: a decent amateur. Don`t be a dick.

I wish that were true, but sadly it`s not. I`ve seen many a crowd act like jerks. People are jerks when they don`t think they have to face consequences. See: internet.

And her performance WAS good. I Dreamed a Dream is an incredibly hard piece to sing well, let alone that amazingly. And that she dropped her accent so perfectly is all the more evidence to her talent.

She may be 47, unemployed, has never been kissed and enjoys only the company of a cat, but she has a truely beautiful voice.
It`s really quite tragic how few good classical and musical singers get a look in, and so for having the spine to give it a go, Susan, I salute you!

I swear the audience is completely acting. The same goes for the one with the other guy who did the same thing. No one acts like such jerks in the crowd beforehand and no one would jump up screaming at that performance. It wasn`t even that good.
