Susan Boyle's 'Britain's Got Talent' audition gives Simon his second spontaneous 'O' of the week

By now, you’ve probably seen this weekend’s viral video sensation, 47-year-old ("and that’s just one siiiiide of me!") Susan Boyle’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent. The never-been-kissed Scot blew away the initially sneer-mongering judges with her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables, causing Simon Cowell to sort of shift in his seat a little bit while allowing one the most sheepish documented grins to date spread over his "O" face. You can watch the entire clip on YouTube (embedding’s disabled), or just bask in the two most telling before-and-after facial reactions, below.

Suck it, eye-rolling tween! You’ll be that "old" and "awful" someday, too.

    Saw this on Sat. through Perez. The biggest shock and the coolest preformance I have ever seen on TV. The end made me cry. Simon made me laugh, too, with his “I knew it” speech.

    She was fantastic. From this we learn not to judge a book by it’s cover! Go Susan Boyle!

  • JL

    Absolutely phenomenal. I get chills watching this performance.

    I’m stunned! I grew up listening to the British Les Mis and I think she could hold her own against the original Fontine! Well done! I absolutly loved it! And Simon’s face was priceless!

    That was awesome. I’d like to see obnoxious, eye-rolling teenager get up there and sing something even half that good.

  • Amy

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that teared up at the end. That was amazing…

  • Alex

    I love susan boyle, and stavros flatley too! I wish we got this here in the states.

    To Annie Barrett: Who are you to call Susan Boyle “old and awful”? You’re just as obnoxious as those who laughed and rolled their eyes at Susan just based on how she looks. Susan has a great voice and I hope she can take advantage of the situation.

    This totally made me weep, something I very rarely do.

    I hope she wins! But even if she doesn’t, will someone PULEEZE give her a contract? I want to buy her CDs!!! (And please sell them in the U.S.!)

    Beautiful song sung by a beautiful voice. I play the full clip once a day to remind me not to judge others by their looks. This woman definitely has humbled many with her first television appearance. I wish her the future she always dreamed of and to tell her that life hasn’t killed the dream. It just postponed it until the right moment.
