Glasgow, the Morning After
Instead of being the zillionth blogger to post Susan Boyle's performance on "Britain's Got Talent" I'll offer this link to an STV interview the next day. Is she the spring's follow up to Chesley Sullenberger or the real time version of Little Voice? The idea of a frumpy, middle-aged, unemployed non-profit worker who'd recently lost her mother and wanting to dedicate a song to her seems to have captured the need for some unexpected glimmer in recessionary times. And while I've yet to see an American Idol winner whose hysteronics and vibratto merit buying one of their records, I have to admit being taken by Susan.
And, it should be noted that while the show my proclaim the talent of greater Britain, the above interview plays up that she is a feisty little Scot and ready to win the big one for the rainy land up north.
