    I wasn't making fun of her Rae. I wanted to make a point about how many of us tend to prejudge and how it only hurts us in the longrun. I know I had a huge eye-opener the first time I went to conference and saw consultants (many of whom are extremely successful) from all walks of like, shapes, sizes, and ethinc origins.

    I presumed that everyone was so shocked because her beautiful voice had not been heard before - how do you have an instrument like that and no-one know about it? As far as her looks go, usually the people who are unpretty by society's standards are the ones who also cannot sing and who the producers love to exploit on TV.

    Oh, please don't misunderstand, Linda. I never thought at all that you were making fun of her. My rant was in response to the media's coverage. I knew you were just pointing out that we never know where we might find that next beautiful recruit, host, or friend.

    Wow! I LOVED the look on Simon's and Pierce's faces when she started singing...and throughout. (The one scene of Simon holding his face in his hands- he looked like he was in love!) *lol*

    Priceless.

    Seriously brought tears to my eyes - remarkable talent that had gone unnoticed till now - I pray she gets the recognition she deserves and then some!!!!

    AND I agree Linda - I was told long ago when I was a child, never prejudge or judge a book by its cover - just because some one walks the walk and talks the talk doesn't make them any better then anyone else........and visa versa!

    I teared up both times I watched this yesterday. What got me even more than the 4000 people rising to their feet and applauding and cheering Susan throughout the song was her humility. She fulfilled her dream - to sing in front of a large audience. When she was done, she started to walk off the stage, I believe because she had no further expectations or hopes. She was completely shocked that she was chosen to go further in the competition, and by the judges' response to her.

    Now, thanks to the internet, she not only sang in front of that audience, but MILLIONS of people have heard her sing, and that was just her audition!!

    BTW, from what I understand the YouTube view is simply a wonderful snippet of the show. I can't really do YouTube because of my dial-up connection. So, while I've seen the whole thing (as far as I know) that's shown on YouTube, I'm reacting to the comments of the news people (local and national) before and after showing the clip.

    Her performance is inspiring and beautiful.

    Rae...you gotta got DSL or cable girlfriend!

    I am awed at her humility, and quirkiness. Did you see how she was shaking in the back-stage interview? She is adorable and I bet a hoot to be around (However, I would love to tackle those eyebrows of hers though ;) ) Can you just imagine how much fun she would be at a Pampered Chef party!

    How amazing! It brought tears to my eyes when she was so surprised at their "yes's". What an amazing person!

    Sorry, Linda. I'm just too darned cheap to pay the cost for DSL. No cable available here in the geographical center of nowhere.

    Darn, I didn't see this till just now. What did they do? Did they have her sing again, or just show the clip and interview her?

    Ugg, I just went on today.msnbc and they have an article about her on there. This is the final statement of the article:

    In Blackburn, her neighbors are rooting for her.

    “We’re very proud of her,” said Angela McKenna, 22. “But we can’t understand why she didn’t at least put a comb through her hair before she went on TV.”


    How rude!!!!

    On The Bonnie Hunt Show today Bonnie's reaction was the same as mine. She said, "The pretty people were all like, 'You mean someone who looks like that could actually have something to offer?'"

    Like me, Bonnie saw a sweet woman with a beauty all her own being treated like an oddity because she doesn't measure up to the current "beautiful people" standard.
