People! Americans! Control yourselves!
Now I'm definitely not against Susan and I'm not against Britain's Got Talent operating as a place where everyone's got a shot and where the downtrodden-seeming have a chance to prove themselves. What I'm against is the way everyone is behaving. Quit posting on Facebook that this performance changed your life! Quit making it clear to us about all the crying you've been doing! What your posts need to say is "Again?!" Have you forgotten that this happened before? Less than two years ago? When that dopey guy came out on Britain's Got Talent that everyone thought was too dopey to be good but then he killed it on that song and everyone started posting it and mailing it around and telling each other that it made them cry?! Well I haven't forgotten about that, because I was one of those people . . . -ish! Hey, the world is full of dopey and frumpy people and some of them have talents and some work hard just like beautiful people sometimes have talents and sometimes work hard. Control yourselves! Don't go into complete hysterics every time one of them shows up on TV or the internet!
How are you going to be acting when this exact same thing happens next season?
I blame the judges for this mania, they were the first three people in the world who could have at least mentioned that this exact same sort of jaw-dropping Ugly Ducking performance totally happened before.
