Appearance... don't always mean everything

Perhaps you have seen this; but I have to say that every once in a while there is a performance on this show that really brings a tear or two or three to my eyes.

WATCH IT HERE

Not to sound trite, but this is a classic example of judging the book by the cover; and that really should make people ashamed. I watched the video a couple of times as I needed to clear my tear ducts and keep thinking about the young brunette woman in the audience who actually rolled her eyes before the Susan Boyle started. People can be so mean.

I will be curious as the show progresses how Ms. Boyle, who stated she has never been kissed and lives with her best friend, a cat will be remade. I would say that with proper wardrobe, hair and eyebrow pluck; she will not only have the talent, but the all important “look” which apparently especially matters for middle aged women in show business. I would like to throw out that it would seem like there is a double standard. I don’t think she would have been received with such a shitty snotty shameful reception if she were a man.

I agree there is a double standard of sorts male vs female. Also you should not judge a book by its cover. I would however say she does not fit the mold of what we are used to as a star singers. And as a side note, my dad told me you can't judge a book by its cover, but you don't have to open a box to know it's full of limberger cheese.

I have had situations where I just know some "stinks" without them opening their mouth.

I dont even think that is was that she was unattractive; just that she was kinda weird in a sweet way.
