I thought she was above average at best, indeed it was a stark contrast between her appearance and social awkwardness but based on a purely no sympathetic bullshit scale it was average to good.

See for yourselves

She's surprisingly good. Not the kind of music I listen to though ;) Also, This should've been in off-topic.

Eh, I did see a clip of that the other day, but I really don't know the context. She was pretty good; not sure why that was a surprise. Are the people on that show usually shit?

I find her very unpleasant. She does have a good voice though.

Yeah, I watched that show when I was in Europe, and pretty much anyone who isn't good-looking and 16-30 are just jokes. She was just really surprising.

She isn't amazing, in my opinion, but more of an unusual surprise. As you know, the media blows everything out of proportion.

She sings better than I do, and better than most every other contestant on that show.  That alone will put her over the top- that and the novelty of a homely singer with talent.

Very scary to look at, but she does have a good voice. Terrible music though.. The welsh, I think she's welsh...seem to have a knack of creating great choir singers.

She has an alright voice but it was a complete fix, they obvisouly added a beard and things like that so she would get a sympathy vote, I hate how the media foucus on things like this, if I wanted to hear stuff like that I would watch those shows but I don't

all these shows are scams, Simon Cowell is gonna make shitloads of money off her.
Same thing with the 12-year old kid.
The performance on the stage is planned way ahead. They do have auditions before the people are let on stage.
Below is a song recorded 1999.

You made a topic about "that show" , expressing your opinion about said show, on a video game forum, so what does that make you?

Heres a hint, begins with A and ends in hole.

Immediately thought of Austin Power's line, "Thats a man baby!" felt bad that I said that. I was surprised. She is good but I don't think "amazing" I think people are saying it is amazing because it was so unexpected.

Her voice is good and she looks funny.

Let's try to not make that overcomplicated.

She has a pretty good voice, but I don't think she's as amazing as people are acting like she is.

I can't stand her. I have nothing against her personally, but why does the whole fucking world love her now. She has nearly 35,000,000 views on one of the videos, and easily 50,000,000 views if you put all the videos of her performing on Britains Got Talent together on YouTube. She's a good singer, nothing special, yet she is adored by millions now. It's crazy.

Aw. Come on. She never expected this. Don't hate her, hate the people who put the clip up on early morning news shows and the like.

She's Scottish.

I think she sounds alright, but I agree the media is spinning this a little to much for my tastes, but this too shall pass.

She has a great voice. Sadly she seems to be getting the attention due to her appearance. Hopefully she'll keep doing music.

Before she even went up on stage and sang, I was gobsmacked. She's 47 and never been kissed. How does she live?? Mind you, she's probably got her bit now that she's been on the telly and all that jazz.

Yeah, shes got a good voice, but I think the massive hype surrounding her is largely down to the way the video was well edited, and the image that led people to expect nothing...
Personally, I thought Flawless were a pretty class act, but there wasnt nearly the same attention around them obviously...

The reason she is getting all the attention is because:

1. Lets be honest, she isn't the most beautiful person in the world. People judged her voice by her appearance and that's why they got shocked.

2. Great editing. They added some nice music at the end that makes you want to cry and that makes people like her even more.

She is a really good singer, but the hype is because she is shocked everyone. If someone who looked a little more beautiful (not saying that she is ugly. Everyone is beautiful) would come on the show and sing just as good as her, they wouldn't receive this reaction.

It wasn't before, buddy.


She is getting a lot of attention because of her looks, but I must say her voice is great. She really nailed that song, and I thought it was better than a lot of Amerian Idol crap I have seen recently. Of course, I only saw this stuff off Youtube but I doubt there is a lot of stuff that's better on reality at the moment.

Your artistic ability doesn't have anything to do with your looks. Why should that be novel?
