    I saw that it cost to call in votes on BGT. Seems fairly obvious to me that Susan's fans didn't bother to spend the money to vote, because they thought she had it (and she should have) but the supporters of others wanted them to do as well as they could, and maybe make 2nd or 3rd. So, susan lost.

    Guest said .. "Susan Boyle is an average singer."

    Have you listened to her two songs recorded ( professionally ) 10 years ago?

    Have you compared her "Dreamed a dream" with other live renditions from professional artists ( available on Youtube )?

    If you have, fair enough. If not, try it, you will be disabused of your opinion.

    Susan Boyle is an average singer. She's not cut out for fame or the big leagues. She sings in tune. So what? You can't even put her on the same level as Kris Allen, Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and Allison Iraheta! Thousands of church singers are just as good, if not substantially better. They haven't had the benefit of the international exposure. Boyle was put in the spotlight specifically because she's physically unattractive, and the voice surprised people. She doesn't have the "voice of an angel." She's a simple-minded autistic person whose singing lacks emotion and interpretation. Just the way she threw down her fists on one phrase (inappropriate choice) of her final performance was indicative of her lack of awareness. She was always ahead of the beat... again because she really isn't a singer. She's robotic, a mimic... without her own style. Let's all get back to reality here and take her off the pedestal.

    Susan Boyle is proof that Nature plays no favourites! Many people admire her and would be interested to follow up on her successes because she is a symbol of hope in our present generation. However, the long gown she wore at the final competition made her look 20 yrs older. They should try to make her look 10 yrs younger.

    I would like to let eveyone know that our Local paper Coventry Evening Telegraph had a headline-Hairy Angel still on bill for Ricoh talent show.I am so disgusted at this and sent them the following I have felt very strongly about an item in tonights Coventry Evening Telegraph re Susan Boyle.It is the media that has caused her to crack up in the first place.She is a lady who has mild learning difficulties and needs respect not to be ridiculed.I would like to see a personal apologie in the paper.To me it is downright bullying.I refer to Hairy Angel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How often are we treated to true magic? That is what Susan Botle gave us, and will continue to give us. Diversity were brilliant, and the choreographer deserves a medal, but Miss boyle was the true natural winner.She is NOT smug. If only these people read about her, they would realise just how humble she is. She does have MLD which means that her emotions are often to the surface, but listen to her, and we forgive everything. Susan, you really are an angel.
