Need a reason to smile?

Wanna feel good? Wanna see cynicism defeated? My eyes filled with tears watching Susan Boyle's performance on Britain's Got Talent. The way they profiled her during the intro, they were setting her up for humiliation and she...well, she knocked it out of the ball park and then some.

See for yourself here.

He really looked genuinely thrilled and excited. I suspect this is exactly the sort of thing they were hoping for with this show. And good for him if he does, because I'm pretty sure she said she was unemployed. I hope they also line her up with good management so she doesn't get cheated/exploited/hit up by "friends" who come out of the woodwork.

She really gave me goosebumps.
