    Not sure how else to title it. Probably lots have seen it. It's from the TV show Brittan's Got Talent.

    Not sure how to turn off auto-embedding, but just click the link above the video.

    Neat stuff, I suppose. I saw it somewhere a couple of days ago.

    Random note: I freakin' love Simon. He's a realist... something that many people fail to accept. I love realists.

    a friend on facebook said she cried when she saw this. So an ugly person can sing??? good for them.
    You can't fix ugly.. but I guess you can fix the ugly's voice.

    Honestly, women cry at everything. They can't help it. But, in this case, I can understand why someone would cry. It's pretty warming (not to sound like a Nancy or anything :)) to see the initial reactions of the audience/judges based on her appearance, and then see their reactions once the lady begins to sing.

    It's not really about how she looks (and I'd wager a good makeover would go a long way). It's just amazing that someone with that kind of voice not only was an unemployed 47 year old, but had seemingly no clue how good she was.

    I didn't cry watching it, but I can say that I've watched it over and over and it never fails to bring a smile to my face.

    I watched it for a couple of minutes, saw it wasn't a joke and turned it off.
