It would be remiss of me not to post a follow-up to my previous post about Susan Boyle. In the seven weeks or so between her first appearance on Britain’s Got Talent she endured snarky comments in the press, suffered a breakdown, and almost withdrew from the finals. Susan went on to place second in the finals, but that really didn’t matter because she got the break that she needed. Her CD has now sold some 1.15 million copies. Here she is performing in the final.
