Finally someone shut him up! Susan Boyle Did you see the video on youtube or on the news? She has a beautiful voice! And then Simon tried to say that he knew she was a great talent when she walked out there.Susan told him "Oh come on Simon" Her story is a sad one and I have not seen the other contestants,but just from hearing her I think she should win. Do you agree with me?

I think he was just as surprised as those two men at the side. I mean you see a woman who is not exactly pretty, rather plain looking, and the first thing you think she sounds like a mouth full of gravel. He probably did not think she was that good until she opened her voice and sang. So he lied when he said that he knew she had talent, he was trying to make her feel better. She understood that, because I bet she was put down most of her life. So he was being gracious. I have not heard the other contestants, but she would be good in musical theater.

Simon gracious....... please!Yes she was teased all her life,but he did not know that then.Even Susan seen that he was just trying to make himself look good as well as his co-panelist and the audience.I know that he seen what a great singer she is.I saw that when his mouth dropped along with everyone else. I have not heard the other contestants but Susan is terrific.

I've only seen the video of her singing and possibly not all of it either. Another person posted the video. She's got a beautiful voice on her. For what Simon said, he may have been just trying to make himself look good or he could have been joking, I don't know, but maybe he felt bad for whatever he could have been thinking.

I saw the video on youtube. I really love her voice. She could pass of as a professional theatrical singer. Thou if you're just going to look at her you wouldn't guess that she posses a beautiful voice. Yeah, she deserved to win.

I saw this too on the news today they said that Simon has already had her signed up with a singing contract deal. What company I do not know. I wonder how those people in the audience that were making faces felt when they heard her sing. It was a few of them the camera was showing making faces. Just like one of the comments that I heard on youtube said, you can't judge a book by its cover. She shut up a lot of mouths. WTG Susan Boyle.

Yeah she did shut a lot of people up!The people in the audience weren't the only ones making faces.Simon rolled his eyes at her.Yes,in the end he signed her to a record label and the woman on the panel(I forgot her name) said that you can't tell a book by it's cover.Susan Boyle is going to be on the morning show on CBS tommorow morning.

Simon is correcting himself actually - in a very "Simonic way". I looked at the video when I read this thread and I thank you for starting this discussion. And what can I say about Susan? Three letters - W!O!W! That's truly amazing! She's got a magnificent voice plus a sunny personality. She's very likable and I love her already! I replayed the video thrice then forwarded the link to some friends. Such a rare gem should be shared all over the world.
