5,000,000 hits on YouTube can't be wrong. A 47 year old church volunteer brought the audience to their feet and the judges admitted that this was the biggest surprise of the Britain's Got Talent's three year run.
Susan Boyle told the judges that her dream was to be a professional singer and she may be well on her way with this performance. What is so touching is that someone who looked so ordinary and, well actually frumpy, could have a voice of such beauty. How we misjudge, how we underestimate. I loved watching the judges' faces change from cynical and snickering to stunned during her performance.
