Let me begin by saying I do not watch American Idol
I do not like the whole "phoniness" of it, or the way the "judges" brutalize and publicly humiliate the contestants
I can't speak to how that's done on the whole on the "Britian's Got Talent" show, because the only clips of it I have ever watched are the ones where the singers are great (remember Paul Potts?)
Anyway, the latest "phenom" is a 47 year old unemployed single woman singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables. If you haven't heard this clip yet, you can access it here.
Listen closely to her sing --- listen to the lyric
(see Simon get knocked out of his chair!)
I hope she wins it all!!
