This might be the most safisfying seven minutes on YouTube.

And as someone who has watched her share of American Idol, I have to say that the editing could not be more perfect. I can only imagine what it was like to have seen it on TV with no hint of what was to come.


Added later: I got an email saying that the embedded video isn't working for some people. Those people should click here.

Thank you, Susan Boyle for the greatest lesson in not judging a book by its cover ever!

When did this happen? Is she singing professionally now?
Makes you wonder how she could reach 47 without anyone noticing she could sing like that.
This was true, wasn't it? Please?

I watched this on some Slavic-language video site and it made me cry!

The episode aired a couple of days ago in the UK.

I don't doubt she will be singing professionally soon.

It was true. It's real. Her name is Susan Boyle and you can google her.

The Wikipedia article explains how she reached age 47 without being noticed as a singer.

She stopped her singing career to take care of her elderly mother (who died in 2007 at age 91).

You can hear a recording she did for a local charity CD here -- she really does have an amazing ability, I thought perhaps she was just a Les Miserables high note Broadway kind of voice, but she does a very nice "Cry Me a River."
