Susan Boyle Curdles Milk

What is the planet’s obsession with the Scottish singer that is, dare I say it…merely mediocre?

Don’t get me wrong, it is refreshing to have a deviation from the typical blonde, beautiful, bulimic performing artists.

But really?

If you take a look at her first appearance on “Britain’s Got Talent”, the entire audience starts clapping within the first second of Ms. Susan Boyle‘s performance. Now, why might that be? It could be that her first note was so sublime, everyone was beyond impressed.

On the other hand, it could be that people have this natural association of pretty=nice voice, ugly=terrible voice and any departure from this norm shocks the audience and YouTube viewers alike into enjoying the performance.

I tend to favour the latter explanation.

The reason I say people were shocked into applauding Ms. Boyle is evidenced numerous times during her audition.

Just take a look at the audience’s, judges’, and hosts’ faces when she hits the stage. The reaction is a fairly unanimous look of abhorrence, which is replaced by admiration the instant her vocal cords don’t release the sound of nails scratching on a chalkboard.

The remainder of her performance is subsequently overwhelmed by the audience’s frantic clapping and shouting. No one even listens to her voice for the rest of the song. If they did, they might notice that her voice is not unlike any other performer on any other “talent” show.

It is a guarantee that a beautiful singer who performed as Ms. Boyle did would be cast away from the competition instantaneously. So why should Ms. Boyle receive more credit for not being a looker?

I say she shouldn’t.

Singing is a performance art. And stage performance, in particular, requires more than a decent singing voice; it requires a look and presence, both of which Ms. Boyle sorely lacks.

The Verdict:
I am glad that people came to their senses and voted the other finalist to win this season’s Britain’s Got Talent based on talent, not utter bewilderment.

Here’s to hoping the next round doesn’t create some new undistinguished phenomenon.

    Wow, she made it through all the way to the finale? I mean, yeah, it is refreshing to see a singer who isn’t glamorous and what not, but with her mediocrity, she shouldn’t have made it that far.

  • Kathy Handyside

    Sounds like you’re a bit jealous. Not to mention rude and mean.

    @chels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.

    Hello.This post was really interesting, particularly because I was browsing for thoughts on this topic last Friday.

    PlayStation Phone – No internal memory? That seems kind of weird since I doubt this thing will use UMD. Also, isn’t the PSP2 coming out next year? Will they make a PSP Phone 2? I’m kind of skeptical on this one. well, i can’t edit…but i wanted to add this. i wont be surprised if sony adds some type of adapter add on to the PS3 (something to support the IR blasters, and maybe a small unit within that add on that has more RAM) so it can support google tv. It would make so much sense for sony to be even more of a presence in the living room, other than what the ps3 can already do. If google tv ends up working out all the kinks, and getting better…i wouldn’t be surprised. On top of that being a selling point (a huge one) over the Wii and similar to the Xbox integration w/ att uverse, you’d be able to get the PSP phone and the ps3 to work all buddy buddy together. the possibilities are endless if you ask me. This would be called product synergy sony…listen to me

    I dont know what it is about this site that turns me off so much, but you simply dont seem to make me excited. I dont know if its the lack of content or because of the way you wrote it. I think you actually dont appear to understand that your visitors might not agree with you.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
