Susan Boyle, I Dreamed a Dream video

Susan Boyle, one of the contestants of Britain's Got Talent has surprised the judges on her singing performance of the song I dreamed a dream. The audience gives her a 20 seconds applause on their feets, and a big yes votes from the judges.

Heres what the judges says:

Piers: Without a doubt that was the biggest surprise I have had in three years on the show. When you stood there with that cheeky grin and said, "I want to be like Elaine Paige", everyone was laughing at you. No one is laughing now. That was stunning, an incredible performance. Amazing. I'm reeling from shock.

Amanda: I am so thrilled because I know that everybody was against you. I honestly think that we were all being very cynical and I think that's the biggest wake up call ever. And I just want to say that it was a complete privilege listening to that.

Simon: Susan Boyle, you can head back to the village, with your head held high, it's three yesses.

Susan Boyle is single, 47 years old from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland. She lives with her 10 year old cat Pebbles. Thanks to Wikipedia for the Susan Boyle information. Thanks also to UTube videos for the Susan Boyle video

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still
I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different form this hell I'm living
so different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.


  1. It doesnt matter how many times I watch this I am still amazed! The lesson is of course - live your dreams! <3

  2. I've heard this a dozen times, I still get a lump in the throat and goosebumps.

  3. I feel that same lump in my throat. You don't have to be one of the beautiful people to have REAL talent!! Life is more than just looks.
