While I don't think for a minute that my strongly insistent emotions for Susan Boyle can rise to the heights achieved by my Flaming Nose comrade Scott over his love for American Idol champion David Cook, I do have to impose some limits here. I think the worldwide sensation that is Susan Boyle deserves even more true love. Susan is, for sure, so far, the most beautifully unlikely entertainment sensation of the Internet age. I have to admit, I stayed away from watching her performance, because anything that could be this widely embraced struck me as suspicious. But I have now watched her showing on Britain's Got Talent numerous times--as have millions of Internet users around the world--and her showing brings me to tears every time. Her appearance on the program is nothing less than the stuff of mythology; it combines music, performance, television direction, and human emotion into a brilliant synthesis.
I could go on and on about the ridiculously lovely--just as she is--Susan Boyle, but I'll keep it to: She's a jaw-dropping phenomenon. I am now desperately looking forward to experiencing this amazing lady's yet-to-be-seen career as a singer, and think it could go untold places. She is, indeed, perhaps the world's heir to Julie Andrews--a singular presence! Here's her interview with Larry King, with show judge Piers Morgan as a guest, too. GOOOOOOOOO, SUUUUSAANNN!!!!
