I finally figured out what it is about this video that makes me cry so much:  I love when underestimated people can shut up a crowd.   Beautiful.

Standing ovation, BITCHES!

    Made me cry, too! That song always does, and her voice…And when they all started cheering I got chills for her. That was great.

    Ugh I hated watching those people in the audience roll their eyes.

    But when she sang it brought tears to my eyes lol.

    That woman has the most amazing voice I’ve EVER heard, it is absolutely impossible to listen to that and not cry. Besides, she’s the sweetest thing EVERR.. It’s really funny to see her so happy when she gets the 3 yeses, DID SHE EVER THINK SHE WOULDN’T?
    And I know she’s too young to be a grandmother, but I would sooo be willing to adopt her as mine, she’s fun, she’s careless, she has a sense of humor aand she sings like an angel..

    And I thank you for posting it here, otherwise I would’ve never found out about it.. we usually don’t get those shows down here! Now most of my province nows about it, and I’ll make sure everyone watches this video..

    how about this though?

    Britain has talent, and Susan Boyle has competition.

    Don’t tell me it’s that kid from our country’s version of Talent. Every time he sings, I could feel cooling blood trickling down towards my neck.

Stranger obviously isn't my real name, but it's close enough. I'm a woman in my late twenties, live in the midwest, and I blog a lot about nothing, although not often. You're welcome.

Questions, love letters, and hate mail can be sent to: typewords at gmail.com, and I can be found on Twitter.

Finally, my only rule for commenting is: play nice and don't be a jerkface.
