Susan Boyle tanks, but makes it to finals of Britain’s Got Talent

May 24, 2009

semifinal1It’s Sunday, May 24 and Susan Boyle’s much anticipated semi final performance on Britain’s Got Talent, came and went.  She looked quite apprehensive as she made her initial approach to the stage and her less than ideal song choice of Memory from the musical Cats got off to a pitchy and painful to watch start but she brought it together in a mediocre sort of way in second half of the song.

From the looks on the judge’s faces, you’d think they were reliving her first awesome performance six weeks ago and tonight they all gave her a standing ovation, including Simon.  The judge’s praised her after the performance, and Simon apologized for their treatment of her in her first audition.

The moment of truth came at the end of the show when the mercy of the public vote would put Susan through to the finals.  All I can say is, the other performers must have been pretty bad, and some were and actually should never have been there in the first place, but that’s another subject.

After hearing she won the first semi final round and would be moving on to the finals, she seemed to feign surprise and then got a little cocky and started shaking her hips like she did in the first performance, but more irritatingly so now and it was directed mostly at Judge Piers Morgan, calling him Piersy Baby.  The judges then got to vote through another act and they chose the dance troupe Diversity.

I like Susan and she definitely can sing, just not tonight.  Still, I wish her well and I hope she brings a more deserving performance to the finals next Saturday.  BTW, great job on the brows and hair and makeup and dress Susan, you looked great.
