No, I'm not going to post that damn YouTube video.
First, good for Susan Boyle. Really. Frumpy people can sing. Good for her.
Second, isn't it amazing that we should be shocked by this, as if one had the slightest relation to the other? Next thing you know we'll find out that people without fashion sense can dance, and that people with unhip haircuts can paint.
I so hate MTV and what it has wrought and rot. Thank God Van Morrison and Roy Orbison arrived before the age of the music video. Watching the smarmy, condescending judges before Susan opened her mouth, I witnessed something very ugly that had absolutely nothing to do with the woman holding the microphone.
