I dont watch much telly at all, Lost, some comedy and usually Britains got Talent.

Well, the new series started again last night and the usual line up of nutters and deluded were queuing up to get torn to pieces by Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and (purrrrrr) Amanda Holden.

Then this woman that could almost be described as a bag lady walked on stage - an admitted 47 year old virgin, dressed like your nan.. and, just like Paul Potts a few years back proceeded to blow everyone out of the water..

Just amazing - check it out HERE

Wow. Wonder if any of her behaviour is a put-on. But oh my, does she ever have a set of pipes!!

What a wonderful voice. Blew me away. It would be really interesting to know her history; you simply don't sing like that without a *lot* of practice. I wonder whether her vocal technique is self-taught, or whether she has had any formal instruction?

Sweet voice. She looked like some grandma, but she's only 47 :P

By all accounts (newspaper interviews this morning), she used to sing to pacify herself at home, as she was bullied at school. During birth she suffered from lack of oxygen which caused some brain damage and made it hard for her to learn at school, so the kids bullied her. She said also that she has never been kissed by a man, not even on the cheek, bless her, if she got just one kiss she would be happy. Most of the kids who used to bully her, still live in the same small village in Scotland where she still lives in the 4 bedroomed house which her parents brought up her and 8 other siblings in. Well, those 'kids' are not laughing at her now ;-)...hope she wins and sticks it right up 'em.

Wow! Talk about blowing Simon away, for once he looked stunned. Goes to show we shouldn't judge others by the cover.

Wish we could watch that show here in the US. Certainly reminded me of Paul Potts. Who's having the last laugh now??

What a wonderful voice.

A more filled out version, 7 minuets worth of smile

WOW....made me cry with happiness for her. I hope she takes it all the way to the top. Thanks for posting....a joy to watch!!!

Fantastic. I hope Simon gives her a big kiss on the cheek next time he sees her

What sucks, I can't watch the show, seems it won't show outside the UK. Will someone keep me updated on her progress.

Ah thanks for that... was just wondering when there would be another Paul Potts story to lift the world. Isn't she gorgeous!? I don't get the show, but watch the highlights in YouTube... would be grateful for posts indicating what to watch and when...

Amazing... Every once in a while, the stars align, and the right thing happens.

I just saw this through another web site. I was blown away.
04/12/2009 07:41:42 PM · #19

Now that is talent. Simon was seeing dollar signs the second she opened her mouth.
