Real talent Vs. the fake kind

I have been wanting to see REAL talent for a while now.

I think the last time I saw actual talent on stage, tv, the movies, etc. was when I saw Billy Elliot at the beginning of the year.

THIS lady (video won't embed)

drives me insane.

I'm sure you've seen Susan Boyle's audition of I Dreamed a Dream, where she BUTCHERS one of my favorite songs.

I'm confused about why she's become so popular.

People say that they weren't expecting a good voice to come out of a severely unattractive person.

So..........ugly people can't sing?

Well, SHE certainly can't. But, I don't think good looks are a requirement to have a good voice.

Susan Boyle has one of the worst voices of all time. I can't take it. And I hate seeing her perform on shows because it makes me angrier and more confused. I'm wondering who enjoys her voice. How is she still performing?

Have you heard Lea Salonga sing I Dreamed a Dream?

It's pure perfection. Where are these kinds of voices?

(start the video around 48 seconds)

That's the way the song should be performed.

THANK YOU!!!!! EUGH! Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised the first time I saw her, but after that- she needed to be gone!!! Not only does she hate being in the spotlight, I hate hearing her sing?!

Those kind of voices are on BROADWAY!! They have made it. Susan is just an ordinary person who was able to produce an album because of reality TV, not because of her outstanding talent. Totally agree ... so over Susan!!

I completely agree Ashley.

My favorite version of this song is the one by {you might make fun of me for this} Lea Michele and Idina Menzel from Glee. Both AMAZING singers. Listening to it still gives me goosebumps. Video here.

I knew you would agree Merde!!

Mary, I LOVE that version!!! I have it on my iPod and listen to it at the gym. Great workout song, right?!~
