    :lol: Tink, I love that I can come on the boards and broaden my vocab. I had to look up "derision."

    Oh my goodness, I kept seeing news stuff regarding S. Boyle, so of course I had to check it out. Peer pressure you know. I was blown away and Simon's face was priceless. :D I hope she goes far.

    There was a young boy too, I'm sorry I don't remember his name. He spoke of being bullied for the music he liked and the way he sang and the songs he chose to sing.

    It was shaking like a leaf and terrified, but when he opened his mouth the most incredibly beautiful voice began to sing Piu Jesu. I am not exaggerating when I said he moved me to tears.

    The three judges were stunned, and all commented on the bullies and his beautiful voice. Hopefully, he too will go a long way.

    I think it's a little funny that I don't give a hoot about the American Idol show, but seem to be captivated by Britain's Got Talent! :unsure: Perhaps the the genuine nature of the people/contestants I've seen? I know AI has a different focus, and that may be what turns me off, I don't know. :shrug:

    I wish it were something I could watch more of! (Britain's Got Talent, I mean).

    That was Andrew Johnston.

    Between Paul Potts, Andrew Johnston, Susan Boyle, and I'm sure many others, I'd have to say, yes, Britain's Got Talent! :yes:

    Tom :)macwave:... who wishes he had more talent)

    I didn't see Paul Potts. :unsure:

    Helly, I'm not so sure they have a slot for warmth, great hugs, wicked sense of humor and pure kindness do they? :unsure: :D

    The minute the announcer said he was Welsh, I knew we were in for an amazing singing voice! Smart of him to choose a well known aria, and even smarter for him to do an incredible job!

    Thanks for the link!

    :shrug: Don't know who that is? :shrug: No matter. Like I said. This is the first time I've really paid any attention to this sort of show.

    I saw Susan Boyle and I cried!! I am just so darn proud of her for having the guts to get up there and share her gift. She is just amazing!!

    Someone will have to keep us up to date on how she is doing each week!!

    Well, I do have a cousin Helen. :D :D :hug2: But I was talking about you Miss Helly. :yes: :hug2:

    I don't watch American Idol, so wouldn't know a rueben from a clay. Well, I do actually. A rueben is a sandwich and a clay is a pigeon used in skeet. :yes:

    No Josh, I hadn't seen that act either.

    It broke my heart for one silly reason. Where is Gianni Versace? He would have dressed them to perfection. That was the sole drawback. I found their costumes little short of hideous. :sorry: Their talent? Well, their name said it all!
