I already wrote a post, expressing my disappointment in the judges’ behavior (and the audience), being so mean to Susan Boyle before she sang.
Now I have more to say.
First of all, here is a link to hear her singing “Cry me a river” in 1999. What a voice.
As for the judges, they are such hypocrites. Here they are talking to this poor kid who’s bullied in school. He sings and everyone is in awe of his voice. And then the judges talk about how terrible those bullies at school are… Um… Do they not realize that they are bullies themselves? The way they later treat Susan, mocking her…
Again, I must say, shame on them. And I’m thinking maybe it’s time for me to stop expecting a certain level of decency from these people. But I can’t. I expect people to be good or at least to be trying to be good. With them it’s all show. Because in this case, since it’s cool to be nice to the kid, they are. When it was cool to mock Susan, they did.
