In a post some time back, I wrote about the Youtube way to Math fame.
Now, a lady in her 40s who took part in Britain’s Got Talent is on her way to phenomenal Youtube success and also real-life success. An Internet clip of her audition has garnered 85.2 million hits!
That’s definitely one for the history books! She’s even got her own Susan Boyle wikipedia entry, and she’s not even won the competition yet.
In a way, it’s not hard to understand the appeal of Susan Boyle. She looks as un-singer/pop star as can be, and therein lies the appeal. When she sings, people listen, and jaws drop (view the video clip if you don’t believe me.) Even the usually caustic Simon Cowell is speechless, and he’s already considering signing her on and planning her album!
So, even if doesn’t win the the competition, she’s won already.
