I can't stand these shows as a rule, but I am forced to endure them as the wife does lol, anyway she was definitely something that not a single person on earth would expect from her, every single thing said watch out here comes another screecher, but as much as I hate that type of music, I have to give her credit for being very good at it, and one can only wonder why it is only this late in life she comes out, her life would of been sooooo much different if she started when she first realised she had such talent, the problem now is everyone wants a piece of her, and thats what I have issues with, as an individual no one would look at her twice, but she sings 1 song and suddenly the demand for her sky rockets.
I don't have a link, but if you actually saw what they turned her into so she would be more "presentable" to the world it would sicken you, they are making her jump through hoops like a trained dog just to please what they think the world wants, why they can't just let her have her own look I don't know, and IIRC she has even had tea with president Obama, but I hate to admit it, the judges summed it up perfectly, and said a performer needs the whole package, and with her looks as she appeared she would just not make it, it's a sad world when a persons talent\success is dictated by their looks, not everyone is fortunate to of hard a good life with all the best things like food and clothes etc.
But she is through to the final, they just added 2 acts to it last night, and IMHO the dance crew that got through totally deserved to get there, every single thing they did was worked for, and I mean really worked hard, provably 12 hours a day, and that I have absolute respect for, I think they have a show every night this week with the grand final being on the 30th (this Saturday coming). but TBH it makes no difference if some win or not, you can guarantee that quite a few will be poached by talent scouts straight off the stage, and Simon Cowell will be one of them, but with the state of this country being what it is, you have to wonder when the act called DJ Talent can get as far as he has with the noise he calls music, they even predict a #1 hit in the charts for him, I seriously hope not is all I can say.
