I'm going to cut to the chase here. Everyone knows that Adam will win (and deserves to win) American Idol. And everyone knows and hopes that Susan Boyle will win (and deserves to win) Britain's Got Talent (Holy smoke, over 100+ million video views and counting!)
Why don't we just agree to have a final televised performance with the two of them right now? Actually, that should happen even if they don't win their respective contests. Yeah, they don't seem to have much in common...(other than that they are both show tune geniuses) and they are of different demographics (so what, young and old alike adore both of them). One has crazy frizzy natural hair and one has processed black Fall Out Boy indie rock hair. Never mind all that. Adam and Susan would make for a great pair on television because they have (are we allowed to say it?)...talent. Oh yes...raw, pulsating, unexpected, make you stop before you leave the TV set for the bathroom talent. The camera loves Adam's young movie star looks and stage moves, as much as it loves Susan's genuine frumpy "never been kissed" middle aged cat lady vibes. What do they have in common? They can both sing like there's no tomorrow. And make us believe in something less dreary than the drudgery of the day.
Simon Cowell, are you listening? Bring them together for us. It's time for a global moment, can you make it happen?
