The Dream is Over, Susan Boyle Comes in Second in “Britain’s Got Talent” Finals … BRITAIN YOU GOT IT WRONG!


Susan Boyle might have finished second in Britain’s Got Talent show, but make no mistake about it, Susan Boyle was the real winner.

Susan Boyle’s Dream has come to a second place ending. The You Tube sensation that has collectively had her amazing vocals viewed over 100 million times has come in second in the finals of “Britain’s Got Talent”.

Sorry to the voters who had Susan Boyle come in second … She was the best and everyone knows it. All you had to do is listen to the judges to know who was #1.

See her Finals performance below.

Susan Boyle had to put up with critics and the nay sayers in the media who trying to build people up so that they can tear them down. Instead of fulfilling the fairy tale dream, Susan Boyle comes in second to an exuberant dance troupe called “Diversity” who took the 100,000-pound ($159,000) first place prize and will perform for Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Show.

This is what Susan Boyle lost to …Diversity. What a shock, Boyle loses to a PC group like this.  LOL, Diversity was a cross between, 1980’s Styx Mr Roboto, Breakin 2, Stomp and the choreography from the cheer leading movie, Bring It On. What makes their victory even more questionable was that there was another dance act, Flawless, that was just as good. Sorry folks there was nothing like Susan Boyle in this final and nothing that even compared to the talent it takes to sing like Susan Boyle. One does not wow the world and finish second … BRITAIN YOU GOT IT WRONG!

“The best people won,” Boyle said. “They’re very entertaining. Lads, I wish you all the best.”

Boyle then curtsied several times to the audience, gave them her signature shimmy, and strolled offstage.

It had been a tumultuous week for Boyle, a woman previously unused to the limelight. She lost her cool during a confrontation with two reporters, and the police intervened. One contest judge said Boyle had contemplated pulling out of the competition to soothe her frazzled nerves.

But when she stepped into the spotlight Saturday, Boyle seemed more polished — and animated — than in previous appearances.

See the song, I Dream the Dream from Les Miserables, that started the Susan Boyle sensation. It was not Susan Boyle who killed the dream, it was the pressure and the bull $#&t from a hateful and resentful media who enjoys and revels in others failure. Susan Boyle is not a seasoned celebrity. She is a simple woman with a simple life with a fantastic voice. Susan, you are the winner in my book.

I dreamed a dream in time gone by,
When hope was high and life, worth living.
I dreamed that love would never die,
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.
Then I was young and unafraid,
And dreams were made and used and wasted.
There was no ransom to be paid,
No song unsung, no wine, untasted.

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living,
So different now from what it seemed…
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed…

      This is why I don’t watch this show or American Idol anymore. Some folks couldn’t spot talent if they tripped over it and to think she lost to a dance group. That’s just b.s. She was the best and is the best.

      This sweet woman has an amazing voice & a great personality and the way she has been treated is appalling. It just makes me sick that the media wanted her to fail, they enjoy the pain of others. This woman had to deal with a lot of ridicule and hatefulness all because she wanted to fulfill her dream.

      Susan Boyle is a winner in my book and she should be very proud.

      God Bless this special lady.

      Who knew the same people who voted for Obama would come out and vote on Britain’s Got Talent.

      What a joke. Should there be audience participation, yes? Should it count for 100% of decision, NO!!!

      These shows should have weighted averages, audience vote 40%, Judges 60%. Otherwise, why have talent judges???

      Once again, its all about diversity, good grief.

      She remains #1 with many many people and her spirit and voice will very likely enrich her pocketbook in the future!

    4. Patti on May 30th, 2009 10:48 pm

      So Diversity shall dance for the Queen,

      and Susan shall rule on Broadway…

      Awesome Talent!

      I can’t believe the people chose canned music over the Genuine Article… who proved to all of us that beauty is only skin deep. How more diverse than you get than that? However, the loss proved something way beyond what we can learn in school… Susan Boyle has character AND class!

      Good Luck, Susan and please keep dreaming the dream!

      first place, second place, or last place… how can i buy a cd ! this woman can “SING” !!!

    6. Nancy on May 31st, 2009 1:26 am

      I agree that Susan IS the Real Winner! She has God-given talent and it will be used to His Glory!

      I’ve heard already that Simon Cowell does intend to record her; I’m just sorry she did not win the money, but she may make even more!!

      I hope so!! I am glad she shared her beautiful voice with the World!

    7. BUN on May 31st, 2009 6:57 am

      #4 good post!!! agree with you completely.

    8. on May 31st, 2009 9:02 am

      I believe I understand why Boyle didn’t win though I don’t agree with the reasoning. Last year one of the judges explained that the winner has to be capable of doing Vegas type shows and therefore they voted off a little girl that was excellent (though they got it right with the male opera singer). I think they decided it was too much pressure for her to win. I think that “might” be true. But I’m left wondering if that should be a criteria.

      I’d hate to see this lovely lady’s life ruined from too much pressure; and we can be certain that the marketing people would not have given up their opportunities to put less pressure on her. Yet, if we were judging on who had the greatest talent, Susan Boyle takes it hands down.

      I suppose the judges think they can make it up to Susan with recording contracts that put less pressure on her; but they may have ruined their future shows since 84% of those voting on Fox say Susan Boyle was the winner and I don’t too many can deny that.

      Amazing story and voice for Ms. Susan Boyle..indeed.

      Was she treated fairly in the press—not particularly. When some of the stories came out referring to her as “too ugly” to have a future…that just takes the wind out of your sails.

      Not to sound whiny- but to be honest, I am kind of glad it’s over…was sick of seeing this on the news.

      Susan Boyle will triumph no matter what because the woman has a voice of great beauty. I actually choke up a little each time I hear her sing…Wow.

    10. Paul on May 31st, 2009 5:39 pm

      I myself am from Britain and I can tell you why Diversity won.

      A dance act all in tune with each other, making excellent and original choreography (the talent of twelve people all in sync with each other), is clearly a lot more talented than a woman with a good voice singing a song.

      This is ‘Britain’s got Talent’ remember, not ‘Pop Idol’.

      You should also be aware that its very British to vote the underdog. You think Susan should win just because she’s become an overnight sensation? Rubbish! Its great to see a hard working dance act with exceptional timing win. I have never been interested in watching dance acts but this lot left me with my jaw open after I saw them for the first time. Great talent and hard-workers. Fantastic achievement.

      Congratulations Diversity.

    11. Paul on May 31st, 2009 5:44 pm

      There was nothing to ‘get wrong’. The most talented act won. Not the most famous..

      Remember that.

    12. Matt on May 31st, 2009 6:09 pm

      Everyone in America has watched the Boyle clips a thousand billion times so obviously they want her to win.

      When you’ve actually sat through each night of performaces last week here in Britain, you would have realised that there are nine other finalists in this competition. It doesn’t revolve around Susan Boyle. Try actually seeing all Diversity’s performances.

      In fact, no. Just pretend they are all ugly and weird then you may be stupid enough to think that merits them winning.

    13. BUN on May 31st, 2009 6:59 pm

      Paul…couldn’t disagree with you more…maybe Britain is more “backward” than I thought.

    14. Patti on May 31st, 2009 7:35 pm


      Typical British criticism. Of course, the best doesn’t come from there… As a matter of fact, even their contest is a copy-cat!


    15. andrew burns on May 31st, 2009 7:42 pm

      well paul, and those who thought the best act won. i am english and entered a debate with americans about dancing , were diversity good , yes the were very good. But, what they did you can see better on the streets of ny , detroit and many other places in the usa. so what is there future, there highest paid gig was i50 pounds in a shopping mall. they are going to have a build an awfull lot of malls for them to make a good living. And according to the los angeles times the runner up has been remembered for yrs and the winner has gone into obscurity in a very short time, which is what i suspect will happen to diversity. One thing susan has in her favour, no act on this planet can achieve what she achieved in one memorable performance of one song.250 million people can’t be wrong. she was the very best, but the public saw it differently and that was up to them. So to the rest of the world the best talent lost

    16. May on May 31st, 2009 11:09 pm

      Funny thing is I have seen NOTHING on the internet about this “Diversity” dance troupe. If they were so phenomenal why aren’t they being splashed around youtube and world news? Susan is a breath of fresh air this world needed!!! She is fantastic and I feel privileged to have the chance to hear her sing.

      Susan you are the winner in my book!!!!

    17. kitty on June 1st, 2009 2:19 am

      Susan Boyle was placed in a hospital from dealing with the stress and not winning apparently, has really confused her…

      Praying she gets the much needed rest and that folks are kind to her and support her during this time ~

      I can’t imagine how difficult a time it’s been for her and wish her the best and hope the Queen will ask Susan to sing for her ~

      Recently heard that AT & T is being investigated for the voting on American Idol…(not sure if it’s true)…

      hey~ with bookies involved in the betting on the win, who’s to say they didn’t control the outcome? anything’s possible…

      Praying for Susan to get help in dealing with the stress from it all… I truly feel for her and support her through prayer to achieve her dream to sing for the Queen and make CD’s… she’s got a worldwide audience that embraces her and because the public votes, I don’t believe it’s all legitimate and if left to the judges, she’d be first ~ and the top 2 really are the ultimate winners… who says, 1st is always the winner? It’s stupid to say that she’s 2nd place.. when in my eyes, she’s won the hearts of the world…

    18. BUN on June 1st, 2009 7:18 am

      Paul…I think the Queen is currently ordering ear plugs to receive the new group!!

    19. nonesuche on June 1st, 2009 7:31 am

      Simon Cowell stated that he “adores” Susan. I hope he will maintain that as he moves forward to manage her career in the US. If Britain only votes for the ‘underdog’ as posted here, then it’s obvious it’s not about the talent. Ironic…

    20. Lenore Cline on June 1st, 2009 12:59 pm

      The Queen needs to summon Susan Boyle for a command performance. Susan deserves this as she is am amazing singer and deserved to be number one.
