Bravo!! A gorgeous performance of both songs!

I've got the DVD of these Wembley clips done but had a technical fault while uploading earlier. I've switched to my 2nd ADSL line and see if that works.

Words fail me - Magnificent and Magical. Bravo Susan, and many thanks for the video upload work guys.

She's doing what she loves and it shows. So very happy for her and with her. Boy, I love that sweet girl.

Thanks for the new blog Paul~~
Thanks DocRobbie and everyone else who posted the great clips!!!
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
DocRobbie, I'm so gobsmacked that I forgot to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Isn't our girl wonderful!!!!!
Posted by DocRobbie on June 21, 2009
Paul, thanks for adding the new videos and putting up this new blog. Both of these are from the matinee (1:30 pm) show. We still await videos of the evening (6:30 pm) show. Thanks to all for the kind words, it was my pleasure to provide the videos for all of you to enjoy.
Posted by Kalua on June 21, 2009
@Lonnirose - Susan is more than wonderful!!! She is divine!!!
Posted by LucyB on June 21, 2009
Just finished watching this performance of Memory for the 5 or 6 time----WHO is in the audience close to the stage and to Susan's right????? She is TOTALLY focused on them---she points to them, she sings almost the first half of the song directly to them, she throws them 2 kisses during the interlude, and then a rather long slow kiss after finishing the song. I know, I'm a wee bit jealous and can't hide the fact, but obviously there is someone(s) sitting right there that are very important to her. It'll be interesting to see if she does the same thing in tonite's performance. Who could it be---someone in her family, (althou they were there in Edinburgh), possibly her neice, Kristy Foy, the entertainment lawyer in London, (I would hope they have developed a very close relationship since 11 April), and then who I really hope, is that Andrew Lloyd Webber was sitting right there in the aisle seat---now wouldn't that be the "cat's meow"!!!??? (course, that's just me dreaming for Susan's dream!!)
Posted by PWattis on June 21, 2009
Bravissimo, Susan. Magnificent! You are so strong and so together! No one who isn't could deliver as you do performance after performance! You have got to continue to do at least some live concerts! You are too fabulous at it to only stay in the recording studio!! Love you!
Posted by Allikat on June 21, 2009
Bravissima! Absolutely stunning! Guess both of these clips are from the matinee? Just listening to them has helped lift some of this extreme fatigue off me. Have been too tired-out to enter into the blogs, but always wish to comment on how much I love and appreciate the wonderful uploads! Hearing Susan sing always helps me feel better.
Posted by PWattis on June 21, 2009
I am so glad that this audience actually listened to you!!
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Kalua, you are right, she is DIVINE. I have used so many beautiful adjectives to describe her, but haven't used that one. THE DIVINE MISS SUSAN BOYLE Has a nice ring to it!
Posted by Janna55 on June 21, 2009
Absolutely amazing!! One of the best performances yet! Susan definitely reaches my soul like no other. Thanks Susan!!

LucyB...there definitely seems to be a very special someone in the audience..haven't seen her that animated for a long time!
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 21, 2009
THANK YOU PAUL, OH MOST MERCIFUL SAHIB OF THE SUSAVERSE!!!

THANK YOU PAUL FOR "GRANTING" ME THE THIRD WISH: 500 MORE posts before I croak on this BLOODY GOD awfull dial-up connection!!!

MUCHO apologies folks for harping on AND on about this, can't get Broadband yet because of "family finance" issues, must struggle with what I've got for now, PLEASE accept my insane bursts on this matter!

Minutes most of my family has the opportunity to enjoy Susan's BGT semi-finals performance for the first time, all are now Susafans like me; my 88 year-old mom exclaimed: "That's Kate Smith!" back from the grave in so many words. Will see if can view "I Dreamed A Dream" off this website later tonight when can get a "quiet pipe" to Magnify.net.

God bless Susan Boyle for "coming into" our family, she's ALREADY "family" to us!
Posted by terijay on June 21, 2009
Unreal- Bravo Bravo- Yu are the one Miss Boyle- Simply the best- better than all the rest!! what a knockout in every sense of the word- style, looks, voice - funny, the BBC has a "Miss Boyle comeback triumphs"-- too wierd...like Judy Garland once said, every time I got to the ladies room and back, It is labeled a comeback"- well, Miss Boyle- "come back" whenever you want, cause you are just SPECTACULAR
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 21, 2009
WOWSERS! I've listened to Memory twice and IDAD once at Wembley. Ummm, she smokedddddddddddddddddddddddd IDAD with Memory. That was a one heck of a song the way she sang Memory. Now that's what you call super vocals. I'm still in awwwww over the way she sang it and I'm off to hear it again.

Posted by DocRobbie on June 21, 2009
@LucyB, many members have been wondering the same thing. She seems to be in a great mood, you can see her smiling in the closeups of her face. For more whimsical guesses on who is in the audience, maybe her doctor, or Simon Cowell, or Piersy Baby?
Posted by calford on June 21, 2009
An article by Father Tim posted 6/19/2009. I copied the address just like it was in my browser. Hope it works - it is very good.

Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
There was definitely someone special there - the last time she threw a kiss, the audience kinda went ooooh. Wonder if they knew who it was?
Posted by bestisahead on June 21, 2009
Brilliant! Please come to the USA, you are breathtaking.
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 21, 2009
@LucyB (very soft whisper: maybe it was the Queen...)
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Piersy baby? Ya think? I thought he was in Vegas. Course it's only a plane ride to England. Hmmm. She sure was smiling and throwing kisses at somebody. Love it!! She looked happy, that's all that matters.
Posted by BostonAve on June 21, 2009
@DocRobbie - thank you for uploading the videos of Susan singing at Wembley. They are great. Susan is magnificent and I still get teary and goose flesh when she sings. I can't wait for her to visit the U.S. so I can hear her sing live. She is more amazing with each performance.
Posted by DocRobbie on June 21, 2009
@terijay, I like that Judy Garland quote. Yes, how many "comebacks" for Susan is the news going to report on before the tour is over? :-)
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
I bet it was Piersy baby. Whoever it was, she seemed delighted to see them.
Posted by Wild Ol' Dan on June 21, 2009
Howdy Pards,

Well, the truth is, this ol' cowhands about as curious as he can get right now. One thing sure is obvious, somebody wonderful was in that audience for Susan today right up front and whoever it was...I'd say Susan noticed.

Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

Wild Ol' Dan
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Terijay, great quote from Judy Garland.
Posted by Kalua on June 21, 2009
Apparently, and I say that with big questions marks, the person (according to comments on Twitter) might be her doctor.
Posted by DocRobbie on June 21, 2009
@calford: Thanks for the link to a lovely article on Susan.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Maybe it's Tommy. We haven't heard from Tommy today.
Posted by Kalua on June 21, 2009
@Lonnirose Piersy babe smelling of hamburgers? LOL Hope not!!!

She gets better every time!! There are several different versions by different people on youtube now, all spectacular!

@ CatsAloud, where's Tommy? You thank him at the top of this new blog, did I miss something?

Tommy, we miss you.
Posted by susanwin on June 21, 2009
Listened to both songs at Wembley, absolitely delighted!
Like I said in my previous email about Susan's performances, she has a tremendous capacity for self-renewal - always highliting new places, putting new accents, nuances!I think, that Memory today was her best!

Susan, darling, come to us to the USA, we'll greet you as our queen!!!

Love and all the best to everybody here,

susanwin
Posted by DocRobbie on June 21, 2009
@Kalua, can you post a link to the twitter comments?
Piersy Baby smelling of hamburgers! Well, he is a spokesperson for that fragrance now, is he not? LOL.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Kalua, let's hope he took a good long bath! LO
Posted by fano123 on June 21, 2009
Most importantly, I get the sense that she enjoyed this more than the others.

Maybe it was the rest, maybe it was that someone in the audience, but she seemed to be in a much happier frame of mind.

More that anything, I would really like to see her having fun.
Posted by purplegothicqueen on June 21, 2009
Amazing performances from Susan. She looked so happy and comfortable on stage and who was she blowing kisses to? I am intrigued now as well. Thanks for uploading this video. She sounds better all the time, looking really lovely as well. So glad that Wembley enjoyed her so much.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 21, 2009
Tommy must be at Wimbledon. Tommy, is that you she's throwing kisses to? I know, she received your videos and letter and it's now a beautiful love story.

Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle has made a triumphant return to the stage after missing four concerts this week on the talent show's live tour.

The 48-year-old singer received a standing ovation when she appeared at Wembley Arena, in north-west London.

DVD of the WEMBLEY performance now available:

As promised, I have created an ISO (disc image) file of a DVD of Susan's Wembley (afternoon) performance. This ISO file is hosted on a file hosting site. You may need to download an ISO to DVD 'image burner', but I have included details of that too. The ISO image will create an NTSC (US compatible) DVD that you can then take away and play like any other DVD on your TV. I have had to do a lot of compressing to get an ISO file that is easily downloadable, but the overall quality is still very good. Here's what you need to do to create your DVD:

1. Go get the ISO file from: Here - click to download (choose the 'free download' option - don't use 'premium' because it will cost. There is a 30 second delay before the download link will show for adverts to display). BEWARE: this file is 146Mb!

2. Save it somewhere on your machine, and then unZIP the file (XP/Vista: right-click on the .zip file, then select 'Extract All'), which will create SUSANDVD8.ISO

3. If you have your own ISO to DVD burner software (most versions of Nero, Roxio, Cyberlink should have this feature, or use ImgBurn again if you downloaded it before) then you can now use that to create your DVD from the ISO file

4. If you need an ISO to DVD burner (for free) then I would recommend ImgBurn: Click here to download
(Just click the blue 'Download' button, then save the .exe file, then run it to install)

5. To create your DVD with ImgBurn: Insert a blank DVD (and it must be a DVD and NOT a CD!), run ImgBurn, Select 'Write Image File to Disc' option, click the folder image next to where it says 'Please select a file...' then browse to the SUSANDVD8.ISO file, then click the image at the bottom of the screen (with the green triangle in the middle of 2 pictures of a disc) to start creating the DVD. Let it do its stuff - it will tell you when it's done. (You may want to untick the 'Verify' tick box if you want your disc to be ready quickly).

6. Eject the disc, take it to your home DVD player and play it!

This should all work as I've described. If it doesn't, check you've followed the instructions properly.

Divinity has come to earth! Her voice alone--"the sound awakened them". And her story inspires! And her character is the crowning glory of "a human being" which is what she said taught her to be! Blessings and Love forever!
Posted by Bubblegum on June 21, 2009
@DocRobbie - I'll add my thanks for posting these new videos and thanks to everyone else for making this such a fun site to visit!

@LucyB - It seems whoever has her attention in the audience is very special to her. Maybe TommyUSA made it over to the concert and she sees him?

(obviously that's my bit of humor but wouldn't it be nice if it were true)?
Posted by joyceleo on June 21, 2009
I meant to say her MOTHER taught her to be a human being, so she said in a rare interview.

@DJG-Scotland, an other big thank you buddy!

@Kalua, love that Tweety avatar.

@Bubblegum, who's that little cutie on your avatar?
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
I have to echo PWattis' comment about the audience. I was pleasantly surprised that the Wembley audience was as attentive and respectful to Susan as they were. I was one of the ones predicting a less than positive audience for Susan at Wembley due to the crowd that generally attends a different kind of concert there and would probably be made up of younger people, waiting for the younger acts. But I sure was mistaken!! This was one of the best audiences so far! They actually listened to the performance and gave a resounding reaction! Terrific!!

Susan DVDs to download.

Just incase you've missed it, I have been creating DVDs of Susan's live concert performances for those who are technically unable to do so for themselves. These DVDs have been turned into ISO files, that you can easily download yourself. Using some simple (and free) software, you can turn those ISO files straight into a DVD (NOTE: you must use a blank DVD, a CD will NOT work!) that you can then take away and play on your home DVD player/TV just like any other. All the DVDs are in NTSC format for use in the US (they should also work anywhere else). There are currently 8 DVDs available. The procedure for creating them is the same for each DVD:

1. Go get the ISO file for the DVD you require - see the list below for the links to each DVD download (choose the 'free download' option - don't use 'premium' because it will cost. There is a 30 second delay before the download link will show for adverts to display).

2. Save it somewhere on your machine, and then unZIP (DVD 2 isn't ZIPped) the file (XP/Vista: right-click on the .zip file, then select 'Extract All'), which will create SUSANDVDx.ISO (where 'x' is the number of the DVD you've downloaded)

3. If you have your own ISO to DVD burner software (most versions of Nero, Roxio, Cyberlink should have this feature, or use ImgBurn again if you downloaded it before) then you can now use that to create your DVD from the ISO file

4. If you need an ISO to DVD burner (for free) then I would recommend ImgBurn: Click here to download
(Just click the blue 'Download' button, then save the .exe file, then run it to install)

5. To create your DVD with ImgBurn: Insert a blank DVD, run ImgBurn, Select 'Write Image File to Disc' option, click the folder image next to where it says 'Please select a file...' then browse to the SUSANDVDx.ISO file (where 'x' is the number of the DVD you've downloaded), then click the image at the bottom of the screen (with the green triangle in the middle of 2 pictures of a disc) to start creating the DVD. Let it do its stuff - it will tell you when it's done. (You may want to untick the 'Verify' tick box if you want your disc to be ready quickly).

6. Eject the disc, take it to your home DVD player and play it!

Susan that performance made my day and brought me back to a special place. You were absolutely spectacular!
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
DYING to know who was in that audience that so captured Susan's attention and got all those kisses!! I sure hope we find out sometime,---because she was smiling and seemed much happier today. What a delicious mystery!! All kinds of speculations have been made. Now,---will someone who was there PLEASE spill the beans??!!
Posted by Casey'smom on June 21, 2009
@ David, welcome back! It's been a while.

That audience was the best yet on the tour.
Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009
it's certainly someone very special to her that she has blown kisses to. The was her best Memory performance, and IDAD was awesome too.

She did look much happier than her last performance in Newcastle.
Posted by patprovo on June 21, 2009
Love Susan but can't wait for her to break out on her own so we can hear some different songs that she can sing and also to see her in a different dress. she looks fabulous. What about her coming to the US to sing at the 4th of July celebration at the White House? Was that just nonsense from her brother? Is she coming to the US to appear on America's Got Talent? Or was that nonsense? She needs to come to the US where she truly is appreciated and fulfill our fantasies about Susan Boyle. I will be patient and wait. I love that girl!!!

In the audition's UTube site:

magaaron123

"Hi all I went to the wembley concert this evening and susan was terrific .The noise from the crowd was so loud as she came on stage she could not hear the intro music and missed her cue and asked the audience if she could start again someone shouted out love you susan and she replied I love you too.Looked totally relaxed and sang with authority and received a standing ovation .I like amanda feel privelaged to have heard her sing .Cant wait for a cd now .Susan your a star .

Brava! Brava! What a great performance. It is really fascinating to watch her as she grows as a performer with each new venue.

Tornadoes are touching down all over Eastern Iowa. Hope I don't have to take cover in the basement
Posted by Casey'smom on June 21, 2009
@ sassyone, yes she was definitely looking at someone in particular. That person's presence seemed to make her feel more comfortable about being herself.

I, for one, hope it WASN'T Piers. In fact, I hope it was anyone BUT Piersy baby!! Let's hope it's someone who really respects, loves, and is good for Susan. Somebody---UN-like Piers!

@WAMcKinley . Your right, it was probably a family member.
Posted by david on June 21, 2009
Thanks Casey'smom, Glad to be back. I was stopping by a few times a day but it was getting a little wild here on the blog so I refrained from posting. Susan moved me and the rest of our community today with an outstanding performance. Her ability to have that impact on all of us is what keeps me around longing for more. I missed communicating with everyone here and did miss not be part of it. So like Susan's positive press....I'll consider the positive blog today my comeback!
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
Hey,---maybe it was Elaine Paige. Coulda been Sir Andrew. Yeah,----I'm hoping it was Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber!!

Ahhh (a soft exhalation of breath) I am here with a smile of joy on my face. Susan, it is so wonderful to see you smile again while you sing. You do look wonderfully refreshed and it so warms my heart. Thank you so much.
Posted by Penny08 on June 21, 2009
@WAMcKinley, I also hope it's not Piers. Do you imagine the fielday the stupid tabs would have with this. No thank you. I hope it's her niece!

Posted by Linda Sharon on June 21, 2009
Oh that was beautiful. Her voice is such a mixed offering of sweetness and power together. And the finish of memories was a new big finish. Surely she is gaining valuable experience so maybe this is initiation by fire will turn out to be important as she finds her way in this new uncharted territory. How my heart cheers her on!
Posted by Kalua on June 21, 2009
@WAMcKinley - so more tidebits from the same person:

"as someone who was there before the press get to grips on the story was the noise initially was defeaning and she gestured to the crowd to quieten down so she could hear the intro at the second attempt ....she was relaxed and looked to be enjoying living her dream ,I hope every one who wants to gets the opportunity to see her ...."
Posted by ML on June 21, 2009
OOOH, I just watched Memory again and I agree. SOMEONE very special to her is there and I am so glad. Whoever it is, thank you for being there for Susan. She looks so happy and as if she is enjoying this performance.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
Since this takes place in London, the field of possibilities is wide open as to who might have been the recipient of all those kisses. Hope we find out. It's sure fun to speculate!!

Susan, is wonderful. I am so anxious for a recording company to sign her a produce a cd. I hope she gets her dream to perform for the Queen. However, the world is waiting for her. She was not discovered soon enough, the world has not been blessed with her talent until now. I hope well beyond her dreams for her, she deserves it.

I sure would like to see the evening show when she had to start over, cause the noise was so loud- what a doll she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love you SUSAN- you are the best and better than all the rest.
Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009
Now, I am very curious as to who she blew kisses too. She clearly knew the person well to give them kisses. I wish I was there, every single time I hear her sing, i cry. I love her to death. I think she has grown into her performances. She seems a lot more confident now than ever.

LOVE YOU SUSAN!

@Casey'smom - My avatar is me when I was a wee lad ... a long time ago. Now I'm blushing and may have to change it.

Patprovo asked if Susan would appear in the US for the 4th of July. My gut tells me no and her brother innocently repeated rumors he had heard. That's how most of the nonsense spreads.

purity, power, and personality....exquisite.

@Teesiel That is so nice that Susan got to start again....she is a true professional. By the way..thank you for all the stories and picture of your travel over the pond. ;)
Posted by Voracious Violinist on June 21, 2009
I have to say I reckon that was her best performance on the BGT tour to date. She looks so much more relaxed and her singing is just fantastic. There was DEFINITELY someone very special in that front row seat. I'm going to make a guess that I think it was Piers Morgan because looking at his schedule - he is leaving London on the 22nd for filming of one of his programmes, so it would have been simple for him to be at the matinee performance. Let's see if the press pick up anything. I think he IS a good professional friend for Susan. I've heard good things about him as a person from media contacts...

"Sweet Valadation" yet again for Susan this afternoon & early evening in the U.K.!

@terijay; See this:

Quote No.3 in particular:

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."

Perhaps Susan had this in mind throwing her kisses.

The dance team is stupendous, however, long after the world has forgotten them they will be listening to Susan. She will be right there with Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion, and Barbara Strisand, for the ages providing she gets the right management. Wish David Foster would work with her. She is so natural and a blessing to us all.

What a wonderful performance!! One thing that Susan has in common with many other well-known singers is a very distinctive voice. Even without looking, you can tell it is her singing; the beautiful, rich quality of her voice is like no other. We love you, Susan. Well done.
Posted by PIGGIE on June 21, 2009
Wow. Has anyone gone from amateur to the consummate professional in such a short time span? If I hadn't known anything about the Susan Boyle story, and was just seeing this today for the first time, I'd assume it was someone who's been doing this professionally all her life. Wow. Wow. Wow.

I wanted to make this comment for a few days now, but don't know how to do it without it sounding like I didn't think Susan was always beautiful, because I did.

But it just strikes me how during her audition she had wolf whistles in the audience which were obviously sarcastic and demeaning, because she didn't fit the Hollywood "image." She has wolf whistles in these performances now which you know are sincere. I just hope Susan is feeling all this love!!

LucyB, I think your dreams of a Susan/Andrew Lloyd Weber collaboration may already be a reality. Don't know if he was in THIS audience, but reports last month said he had fallen under her spell, just like the rest of the world.

Andrew Lloyd Weber Talks Susan Boyle in UK Telegraph

The UK Telegraph reports that Andrew Lloyd Webber has fallen under the spell of Susan Boyle, just like the rest of the planet!

He recently met Boyle, the internet sensation from Britain's Got Talent, at a recording studio in London and he told The Sun he had a role for her.

"She is a terrific sport and she's a great fan of my shows," he gushed to the paper.

"If she wanted to be in one, well it could happen. It would have to be the right role. Maybe I know what it could be, but I'm not telling. She's got a great future" Lord Lloyd Webber said


This article is from May and it confirms that at that time, Susan planned on singing 'Whistle Down the Wind' another of A.L.Weber's shows.

Whistle Down the Wind has been described by some as Andrew Lloyd Webber's best musical since The Phantom of the Opera. Based on the much loved film -- which made stars out of Haley Mills and Alan Bates -- Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman's show is an extraordinary and uplifting tale about the transforming power of love, proving that goodness can be found in the strangest of places.

It sounds like he would love to write a part especially for Susan and I'm sure he's aware that ticket sales for Les Miserable have soared because of her.

It would not be surprising if he has been to see at least one of her live shows. As he said 'she has a great future'.

Thanks to all those who uploaded the videos from this afternoon's show. She was sensational as usual.

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@greygrannie . I agree and I like hearing her accent on certain words like "soon" ( soon it will be morning)
Posted by pickled tink on June 21, 2009
This is going to give her such a boost to continue the rest of the tour, but I do hope she misses a few days out and paces herself.

I love the way she is playing with the crowd and they are responding to her, and when she gets her own tour I hope she does some chatting to the audience because that is so much a part of her charm.
Posted by Meme on June 21, 2009
AHH...how wonderfully she sang, and she looked more relaxed and happy. I chuckled at myself..trying to almost put my head through the computer screen to see if she was smiling! Thank you so much to those who put them up for all of us.
I love the way she is making each performance a little different. I agree...I think she is trying new things out. I wondered today if she still practices with her hairbrush..or sings in the shower or sings to herself as she does little things around her flat.
I am also dying of curiosity wondering who she was blowing kisses to. Whoever it was...better be someone who's good to her. Maybe family. She has quite a few sibs and I think only one brother was in Glasgow.
I've got a new favorite word...gobsmacked!! That will confuse all the Pennsylvania Dutchmen around here!! A new favorite place to be...here on this site..a new thing to be happy about..another performance to look forward to!!!! I'm losing sleep on these days when she performs!!!
Posted by greygrannie on June 21, 2009
patriciasart, I had been wondering if Susan is making an attempt toAmericanize her accent for future use. Did you hear how she has been saying "thunder" rather than "thundah"?

@sabrina6850; Remember that Susan sang first couple of bars during a TV interview many weeks ago of "Whistle Down The Wind" as well as "My Heart Will Go On" on another TV interview so "rest assured" she'll record them on CD(s).
Posted by Teesiel on June 21, 2009
@greygrannie--you are soo right. I called a florist to have flowers sent today and they put me on hold and I was like oh my gosh.. that's susan boyle singing in the background--when they came back on I asked is that susan boyle singing and the girl said yes, we just love listening to her...I resisted telling that i had seen her twice this week but the truth is that I got spoiled and now I miss Susan Boyle!!! Like you said--she has one of those voices that is unmistakable. I hope someone got the 2 starts from her evening performance--instead of starting their camera over again---she was probably very cute about it!
Posted by ca0911 on June 21, 2009
PatProvo
A couple of weeks ago a press release from the White House stated there had not been an invitation for the Fourth, and the BGT tour is not over until the fifth or sixth. Although we in the US certainly love and appreciate her, she has many fans in the UK who also appreciate her just as much I think (witness the audience reactions every performance)I am sure AGT wants her here, they would be stupid not to. Whether she is coming I have not read anything definite...........has anyone else?

@ Retired in Flat Broke Kalifornia ~ yes, I do remember her singing it without any enhancements whatsoever and it was wonderful. Her brother said she had intended to sing it also, and sung it for him in her house and, he said, it was the best he ever heard, that it would been an enormous success at the finals.

@ Casey'smom ~ you're welcome. It is wonderful how many great artists have fallen in love with her. But especially someone like Weber. What a dream come true for any singer to have someone like that offer to write especially for you. I don't think that happens very often.

And, like so many others have said about Susan, she is great fun to be around.

Posted by vera on June 21, 2009
Thanks so much for the latest videos from Wembley. Susan is doing it right, only performing when she can give 100%.

Posted by johnnycake on June 21, 2009
Thank you DocRobbie, and thanks to Teesiel for your amazing Edinburgh vids. And AmazinglyCritical, I too was completely bowled over by her performance of Memory. The best yet. I kind of think I'd be tired of most any other performer doing the same 2 songs over and over, but with Susan it is magical. And obviously, although we watch over and over on the computer, for each live audience it's a once in a lifetime...unless your Tessiel and you go to every show the woman puts on.

@johnnycake: Very funny! Why is it that we aren't sick to death of these same two songs??

I just wonder if the kisses were a good luck message to another famous Scot who is in london at the moment and might well have gone along with his family to see the show - he might win a certain tennis tournament in a fortnight - Can you guess the mystery guest? Stand up, one Andrew Murray.
Of course, I might be well off the mark, but it is just a possibility.
Night all. I go to sleep a contented man - Susan is back where she belongs - in the firmament and she can rest up before she goes to my beloved Kincardineshire and Rocks them on the banks of the Dee. Darn it and I have just come back from holidaying there to! Still, there will be other opportunities to see our favourite songbird, I'm sure of that.
Posted by julieoffutt on June 21, 2009
I truly do not believe that even Andrew Lloyd-Webber could ask for a better performance of this song and to 12,500 people! What an achievement! Oh Susan, please never strain that beautiful voice of yours. You don't need to tour to sell DVDs or CDs. Just ask Barbra Striesand!

Well done, our dear Susan.

@Casey'smom . No read Aliz's post again she meant to write "like". She was saying she agreed with us ,that she didn't like his comments. And after todays performance along with all the others ,how could he define her as
"a beautiful voice trapped in a damaged body" it breaks my heart to know he was her priest all her life.No wonder she has low self esteem. Poor Susan. Well she will prove him wrong now. I hope he eats those words!

Just finished doing nightly Google news searches for "Travel Pod" Susan Boyle fan site am member of, couple of not grossly offensive "Trashoids" making regular posts about her are "singing praises" about her Wembley performances - is it simply because she makes "good press" or "something else" I wonder.

These "Trashoids" I think are run by under 35 crowd; does she REALLY have a "following" among the young, if so would be near unprecedented, particularly in this age of sliced-diced entertainment marketeering.

So right Patriciasart.

Aliz, sorry if I misread but wasn't meant to be mean anyways. Been dealing with a headache since last Thursday, trying to speed read to stop the computer eye strain.

Thank you Patriciasart for clearing that up.
Posted by ksdust on June 21, 2009
kaula, I bet Susan will keep her cute Scottish accent! but I love it that she doesn't have the accent when singing, it makes it so great for us in the US. we are used to newspeople talking and they don't have accents. (except at some local stations, you-all know that.) they learn how to speak so it sounds good to everyone, and Susan does that when singing. the best thing about the videos today is that Susan is happy! and when she reacts to the love from the audience, as thank you to her fans, then it's for us, too! she's said it in interviews, thanks to all who have supported her.

@Susan Boyle; We WANT more of your thrown kisses, they are those of cherubim who kiss our souls, waking them from dark slumbers; to invigorate and rejuvinate, to make us boldy go forward into the light of God's beauty and receive HIS infinate blessings without condition.
Posted by PhyllisIA on June 21, 2009
I think all the adjectives have been used to describe today's performance. What a star! I keep thinking "Here's where it's all going to happen." Just love Susan Boyle. Having the videos to watch helped the pain of having our oldest son and granddaughter leave after a Father's Day visit-- always hard no matter how old they are.

Tommy, thanks for all your videos. Also, your site is marvelous.

Blessings to all,

Wondering why she changed the line in IDAD from "and we would live our life together" to: "and we wil live our years together"-- interesting, but it was not a mistake. She sang the words for a reason. Susan is a beautiful enigma wrapped up in a puzzle
Posted by whisper1 on June 21, 2009
My opinion for what it’s worth is that the priest engaged in spiritual abuse when he spoke of Susan the way he did. I find is comments utterly male chauvinistic…how dare he…..
Posted by Ruth F on June 21, 2009
As suggested by patriciasart's post on the prior blog, I read the interview with Susan's parish priest. As a lifelong, albeit lapsed, Catholic, I, too, was taken aback that he would casually gossip about one of his parishioners -- and there really isn't a nicer way to characterize his comments. "Damaged body," indeed.

It's clear, however, that Susan is used to exceeding others' expectations of her, and she did so again today. I don't have words adequate to describe the effects her music has on me.

Grrr, don't make me go down there. Yes,too, concur with y'all, Susan's singing accent sets her apart from all the others, absolutely love it. Tessiel, what a superfan you are to travel to see Susan; thanks for pictures and updates. Tommy, DocRobbie, the videos rock. Thanks also to all members for the the brilliant insights posted over the past few months about Susan's journey to stardom. You all deserve an extra serving of mackerel. Oh, BTW, is my hearthrob compadre Pebbles resting in the luxury flat in London? Happy Father's day to all dads. Also bless the ones that have passed on.

Someone should write him about lifting his parisioners up instead of down. I wonder if her is getting some kind of $$$ from the press or BGT somehow. We should write to hime personally. What was his name again. I'll be the first one.
Posted by treesmary on June 21, 2009
At one point, Susan threw one kiss right after another in the same direction. I think she was throwing kisses to children who were probably throwing kisses to her. Couldn't do one without the other, you know. Maybe her lawyer niece has children.

@delly ,Yes there is an article posted on the previous
blog where Susan's Parish Priest described her as a beautiful voice trapped in a damaged body and he didn't like her plucking her eye brows. This tells me she has never plucked her eyebrows before. My that girl has lived a sheltered life. I bet she is glad to be out and about and getting some spa treatment. She is probably in hog heaven.

Gosh, this was the best performance ever! It does not seem possible that her voice just keeps getting stronger, whoever made that comment about it taking time to get her voice back after 2 years of not singing, that may be the case. Someone, also made the comment the voice is like a well maintained machine, and you have to keep singing to keep in atune. Hopefully, she will never stop singing again for two years.

Sincerely, many thanks to Doc Robbie for all his uploads on these videos. I would not be enjoying them if it was not for you and your dedicated efforts. And, also, to Tommy for the ones you've done. You guys have been a great team effort!

"Anyone who sees her for the first time behaves the same way. I have never heard her sing badly, though she might lose the words if the stress gets too much," he told Catholic News Service in an April 16 telephone interview.

Boyle first appeared before judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden on the ITV1 sister show of "America's Got Talent"; it was broadcast April 11.

Her fame spread on the Internet, and in just five days she had attracted more than 15 million YouTube viewings of her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream," from the musical "Les Miserables."

Part of Boyle's attraction is that she appears to be such an unlikely candidate for stardom. She said on TV that she has "never been kissed" and has lived alone with her cat since her mother died in 2007.

According to British media, she has learning disabilities as a result of being starved of oxygen at birth. She is unemployed and, as a churchgoing Catholic, her social life revolves around her family and her parish of Our Lady of Lourdes. She also enjoys karaoke in her local pub.

Father Clark said, "When she gets up to sing it can either be wonderful or you can get the unpredictable eccentric behavior, but it is to do with the fact that she has learning difficulties.

"In a sense, there is a beautiful voice trapped in this damaged body," he said. "It is an absolute contrast. There she was on television acting very peculiarly and the audience was expecting peculiar things to happen and then a voice of an angel comes out -- and that's Susan."

Father Clark said that local people who knew Boyle, the youngest of nine children of a family descended from Irish migrants, were "enormously proud of her and wish her the best but they are aware of the risks she is running," adding that her behavior has previously drawn cruel taunts from children.

"People are slightly worried about what might happen after this bout of fame," he explained.

"I am quite worried for her," he added. "I think it's great at one level. It might just be the thing that will make her, but she is a very vulnerable person and it could be quite difficult.

"It is a great opportunity for her and as far as I am concerned she should make the best of it, and if it lasts, it lasts, and if it doesn't, then it's still more than almost any one of us will ever achieve," he added. "It is important in sustaining her and making sure this is all a very, very beneficial experience."

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
I must admit,when I saw Susan's first audition, I didn't think she was for real. I mean ,I could see that she could sing but I thought it was all staged,That BGT got her to wear the outdated dress and not pluck her eyebrows. My first impression was that she looked 40 something ,nice skin ect. but she dressed like an older woman,clothes ,hairstyle. But then I found this site and watched all the interviews and now I see she is for real. And she is changing,probably into who she always wanted to be. I think she will still be herself but she will grow and growing is good. I think she is amazing and brave too. She believed in herself and her abilities and strengths. She could have done it before, but she sacrificed for her parents. But now is her time. She deserves it,she has earned it. And I think its incredable that we have watched this transformation. It has been like watching a movies,only it is real. So amazing.
Posted by HAPPY on June 21, 2009
Here are a few French adjectives for Susan!

Incroyable! Inimaginable! Surprenante! Impressionnante!Incomparable! Admirable! Adorable!...

Nothing compares to the sublime softness of her voice in this rendition of Memory. It is as if God was smiling at us through her. I'd never seen such a thing before.

I might mention that I was on you tube this afternoon when one of the first downloads of Susan's Memory (Wembley) performance hit so I posted a very nice post to the video, and (within seconds) someone was so blown away by it sent me an email thru you tube, so I replied in my usual way thanking him, and also explained I was a member of her original fan site at Susan-Boyle.com. Now, that information (was attached to both comments on youtube)and can be shared with anyone visiting that video.

In fact, her lawyer niece does have children, but the newest is only about 6 months old or so, so I don't think he/she was there. lol

Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 21, 2009
I was rather offended by Father Tim's blog entry on IrishCentral.com. I found it extremely condescending since he advises Susan that she doesn't belong out in the world, to go back home to Blackburn and forget her dream:

"Susan, my sister in Christ, I speak to you now in the confidence that Our Loving Father will find a way for you to hear these words:

You must return to Our Lady of Knock, and give this nightmarish problem to the Mothers in Heaven Who love you, and who will hear and answer you. They will lift this terrible weight from you as if it was a feather. The tears in your eyes will dry, your beautiful smile will return, and you can use your beautiful voice where it truly belongs: in your own parish choir at Our Lady of Lourdes in Scotland."

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@ksdust , the part I resent is calling her damaged and eccentric. Maybe he doesn't understand her sense of humor. I think she did the wiggle at Simon because he rolled his eyes when she said she was 47 ,and then she bobbed her head at him as if she was giving him sass for putting her down for being 47. But it was all in good sport. I get Susan. I underatand her sense of humor. There is no way should could have traveled by bus all the way to Glasgow by herself and do that 1st audition,all those interviews and these shows now if she was mentally deficient .

Posted by Casey'smom on June 21, 2009
@ Patriciasart, I totally thought the same thing! I thought it was staged by BGT to get a wider viewership because media across the world picked it up, the rags to riches story everybody likes (especially in these hard times, world upheaval), and they got the world to look at them. But now, I think, right time, right place, right?

She is a Godsend, so needed right now. Hopefully, she will find the happiness she so deserves.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@ksdust ,yes and her father too.

Posted by tweek on June 21, 2009
I am surprised you have not seen this article before, it was written back in April, and although written by her priest he is very unfair to Susan's persona, in the way he describes her. I would say let's move on to more positive things about Susan. Susan needs to set her eyes on the horizon and definitely not look back and just keep right on going. When Susan collapsed and went to the priority, her whole world was shaken and she temporarily lost her confidence. Hey, most of us have been there. But what's important, she is on her way and she should definitely have no problem with confidence, henceforth. Other things that she has not had experience with or issues she has not dealt with in the past as she goes forward in her career, she will also learn to deal with in the future. Whoever is working with her now, to keep the tour appearances to only the ones which will be to her advantage are much to be accredited. This tour is like a circus, to put in mildly. There is no place for rest for any of the performers, let alone Susan.

(as to this article, it is plain outright unflattering to say the least...)
Posted by ksdust on June 21, 2009
patricia, me, too. I think Susan was having fun, she likes to joke and make people laugh. she said in an interview her friends told her she'd be okay if she didn't do the "carry on" and just sang. and she said if she sang before the queen she'd be more lady-like.

but Father Clark meant well. and guess what?? the body is beautiful and the voice is no longer trapped! whoopee!
Posted by nibbana on June 21, 2009
Thank you to all of those who post links to articles that we can offer our comments to. As well, any links to polls that fans can take on Susan's behalf is also very helpful.

I think it would be a great idea if on the sidebar there was a permanent link to a page that contained only links to the latest news stories about Susan for Fans to access and thereby Advocate for Susan. It is difficult to find the links embedded within these posts on the site.

Hopefully there will be a website re-vamp very soon. The system under which this site runs is not very convenient.

Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
I think before anyone begins to write to these priests,--maybe you should get straight who they all are. Susan's priest in her hometown of Blackburn is Father Haluka. Father Basil Clark is the dean of West Lothian---and has accompanied Susan on the annual pilgrimage to the Marian Shrine in Knock, Ireland. I have no idea who "Father Tim" is,---except he seems to have a column in the "Irish Central" publication. Just thought you might want to get these "Fathers" separated and clarified.

Posted by bibi _ 36 on June 21, 2009
@ Patriciasart and anyone else who’s read that article from a blog on www.Beliefnet.com , I read that same article on an Irish site ages ago and was pretty appalled by it’s description of Susan too. It’s a long time since then and we’ve read copious amounts here since so forgive me if I’m a bit vague on what I recall at the moment. I don’t have the time to go searching but I did read then that the priest who is quoted in that article, a Father Basil Clark, is not Susan’s parish priest – even though it’s stated so on Beliefnet and elsewhere. From recall, he’s in a capacity something like Dean of that area and I think I read that at least some of his contact with Susan has been during those pilgrimages back to Knock, where she is said to have sung at the Basilica there.

I did google at the time to see who her parish was and it came up with the name of a Father Ryszard Holuka , who has nothing to do with that particular article. He has been quoted separately elsewhere, but I don’t remember what he said so it couldn’t have been as insensitive as this other priest’s expressed views.

It will be grand when BrooklynBlessings goes to Blackburn. She will be able to find out for sure who the parish priest is.

Oh, I do remember Fr Holuka saying that he was receiving hundreds of e-mails from fans of Susan who didn’t know her address etc. and that it was all a bit overwhelming. I imagine that’s what it must be like for many people in Blackburn since the last 2 months.

I also surmise that Susan would be rather upset to see the criticism of her parish priest as a result of this misrepresentation as she apparently attends mass more than on Sundays, is a member of the Legion of Mary and is firmly grounded in her Catholic faith. I’m not writing as a Catholic.

Sorry for not being more specific, but there's so much misinformation about ..... Fr Clark though sounds typical of a certain breed of cleric.
Posted by mclim on June 21, 2009
I just read some stuff at that Irish Central website and I don't think I believe one thing they have on that site. I mean I just read a story of when Chastity Bono went public with her sex change, the guy from U2s wife thought they were talking about him. So she calls him and is all hysterical thinking he is going to become a woman now. Oh for goodness sake that did not happen, and I doubt any of their hideous stories are true.
Posted by ca0911 on June 21, 2009
I have to say with a "friend" like Susan's pr iest, she doesn't need enemies! "Damaged body" indeed. Every time I read something like that I admire this wonderful lady's courage even more. The fact that she did not let life, circumstances, skepticism or time derail her dream is one of the most inspiring and amazing stories of this century.

My opinion, if it counts at all, this is all too much for Susan. She is going to need a long time to rest after this. Just think how you would feel. Not known....to Known all over the World. Too much. I do think that she had no idea what this BGT thing was going to explode into.
Posted by DR on June 21, 2009
Just like the tabloids, even "honest" sources doctor their articles. I find it hard to believe her priest would say those things about Susan. He would know her very well and has probably downed many cups of tea in her home.

My husband and I have done many interviews for our home town newspaper and local TV. I won't do them anymore, but my husband has now taken a course on 'how to talk to the media' and has learned how to handle them.

We found that when we picked up the newspaper or turned on the TV after an interview, our words were taken out of context, Whole sentences went missing and questions omitted leaving the innocent answer to be a statement of large untruths. We even once opened the paper to find my husband's photo on the front page with a controvertial article giving his views on a local news item.......he was never interviewed for that article! The whole thing had been pieced together from many previous interviews.

This has happened in our small hometown where everyone knows each other. I'm sure the big guys are just as quick to see the possibility to sell an item.

I will reserve judgement on the priest.

Posted by PhyllisIA on June 21, 2009
TXNOelle and BethintheUSA, I posted the article your referring to, but didn't interpret his saying for Susan to go home literally, although that's the words he used. I was touched and impressed with his sensitivity to her experience on the tour, and it was written at the peak of the rag rage. I thought in terms of regrouping, to use a new term, or return to her spiritual self. I can see Susan leading a quieter life, definitely more quiet than this tour, but still recording and some appearances. NO, I'm not saying she's frail, but I respect her need for regrouping. Not arguing, just sharing my interpretion.

Posted by Linda Sharon on June 21, 2009
The priest didn't really say that did he? Tell me it's not true. Well you know - some are called and some just went. (And I'm a heavy duty Christian but they're not all talkin divine inspiration are they - some are just talkin). Hope Susan doesn't give that much value if it's true that he did say that). And besides - How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Parr-ree! God didn't give her that voice - those pipes! to hide that little light under a bushel. It's a gift to touch the world with joy and to exalt the humble - The 'Man' upstairs does that stuff all the time!. Anyhow - a question - when it says members on the site does that mean I'm a member because I've signed up with my e-mail to post and I've donated financially to the site? Or is there something else I need to do or register. ???

@TOMMYUSA, I know Susan blew that kiss to you. You have to own up to it my friend. :)
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 21, 2009
I would like to repeat as others have the Father Haluka is Susan's priest, and I have not found anything about him except that he has been very supporting of her.

West Lothian's dean, whose name is Clark, is the priest making the comments about her as quoted by several members. He is not Susan's priest.

I would hate to think anyone would write to Father Haluka instead of Father Clark!
Posted by FocusOnSusan on June 21, 2009
@Weeone, everyone's opinion counts here!

Susan will do what's best for Susan...remember when she said 'baby steps?' I think she'll be living her dream at her own pace.
Posted by ksdust on June 21, 2009
I am more upset by Father Tim saying it's time for her to go home. I'm sure he's concerned for her, too. but it seems to me she was not living such a happy life after her mother died. her whole world had changed. not only did she lose her beloved mother but also lost her "job", caring for her mother. and she was living alone for the first time. she did have her dear pet, Pebbles.

reading that she sometimes forgot words to songs (re Father Clark) and whether she did or didn't have "problems" it's even more incredible that she had the courage to go to the first audition, which was last August, and keep the appointment to be on the audition show in January. and we heard Susan herself say it was all worth it. things got worse after that but she didn't quit. maybe she didn't expect it to be easy. but she wanted to sing and she's singing! 12,500 people at Wembley? wow!

and I'm thinking those who have posted about Susan knowing her own mind and being able to make her own decisions are right!

okay, I feel better now.

Posted by Donna T on June 21, 2009

Just leave the priest alone. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. He wasn't talking to us. He was talking to Susan. Haven't we all decided that Susan is capable of making decision for herself? Or are we guilty of the same judgement others are saying about Susan's inability to think for herself?

Why are priests being discussed? I don't get it.

Sorry, I misspelled Father Holuka's name; Susan said he's been very, very supportive. He did not have that interview that is being quoted everywhere on the internet.
Posted by Corkie on June 21, 2009
If my priest made a public comment about me in this manner I would be deeply offended. He's a priest. He has no right to comment about any parishioner in this way. Damaged body??? What is he talking about? If she wants to pluck her eye brows and look beautiful she has every right. She's been held down her entire life and sometimes I think it's some of the lousy people in her hometown who have caused a good deal of her problems. Now it's her turn to shine and achieve a lifelong dream. If a priest can't understand that, he shouldn't be a priest. Grrrrr. I'm a little bit angry.

Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 21, 2009
@weeone, they happen to be priests, at least 2 of them know Susan personally. The point is that people who know Susan should not say unkind things about her to the media.

If they were bartenders or mayors of towns, the discussion would be the same.
Posted by aliz on June 21, 2009
has any one gone to the daily express article. it is current and about the shows from todays shows. It was really cute you guys would have loved it. I think I reaaly want to focus on the positives, as susan would tell us to do. By the way I don't think the kiss was to piers.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
I have a feeling the priest making those remarks was probably speaking out of genuine concern for Susan. We might not agree with him,---but he's looking at things from quite a different perspective from ours, anyhow. He sees it as his duty to try to protect someone whom he probably views as vulnerable and in need of protecting. As a priest, that would be his duty. Also, I doubt he has much use for the entertainment industry and probably has fears of all she's likely to encounter in this new life. And those are genuine concerns we all should have, actually,-------those of us who care for her. I think we should just try and remember where this man is coming from in his advice to Susan. She would probably understand it very well.

Posted by Muey on June 21, 2009
Another magnificent performance! What a voice and what a dear soul! She seemed to be directing her kisses toward a specific place in the audience. Maybe family and friends were there for her tonight. The more emotional support the better. When you think about it, it has been just a little over 2 months since this whole wild, wonderful, terrifying roller coaster ride for her began. I'd be lucky if I knew what planet I was on! There has been so much conjecture, both disparaging and favorable, about what has truly been happening to Susan during this difficult period. It'll be good when the only person truly qualified to clear the air of all myths and assumptions, Susan herself, does so- in her own way and her own time. Until then, I pray that God will continue to bless and protect her. Someday, she may realize what a gift she has given to complete strangers around the world and why we love her for it! Take care, all.- Meg, USA
Posted by aliz on June 21, 2009
I hope susan is celebrating her great performance tonight. it was great. I hope the flat has a piano. You know she probably has been having a ball in the flat. She could have a great party with diversity and other on the tour.Now that would be fun to be at a singing jamming party with her dancing the jigs and singing those songs she loved cutting the rug as they say.
Posted by Ruth F on June 21, 2009
Fr. Basil Clark is identified in the BeliefNet article as Susan's parish priest, but regardless of his role, one would think that he'd exercise more discernment than he did -- assuming that he was quoted accurately.

Like Corkie, I'd be offended -- hurt -- if someone I knew made such insensitive remarks about me. At some point, people will stop listening to such claptrap. Susan will prevail -- in fact, she already has.
Posted by ksdust on June 21, 2009
WAMcKinley you are right. the priests are concerned for Susan and it's their job to give advice. some of us just get upset when it seems someone is being critical of Susan.

okay, I'm back to thinking happy thoughts! Susan sang today and the articles I've read have been kind. as they should be.

Thanks for clearing that up, BETH. I'm thinking that I saw an interview with Susan's Parish Priest in Blackburn, early on after her audition and he was VERY complimentary re: Susan.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@ksdust .Well as much as the priest words upset us,you what,knowing Susan as we do ,she will forgive and forget those words. As she says,I will win them around. She is a good hearted person. I'm thinking too about when she did the interview after the semi final ,I think its on the BGT
site,when she did the wiggle again(because the interviewer
asked her to do it) and she joke with the doll of herself. That was so precious and she seemed very normal to me. If I hear brain damaged one more time!

But I will say this once more and will drop the subject from now on. If we can see she is normal ,then why can't these priest see it. Sometimes I think these priest think anyone with a little bit of personality is an oddball. Reminds me of the Sound Of Music when all the nuns were frustrated with Maria because she was too exuberent.
Posted by ksdust on June 21, 2009
Donna, along with others I think the kisses were for a child or children. some of her nephews and nieces must be about Susan's age and have children.

@Donna...Elaine Paige
Posted by vicki smith on June 21, 2009
After the Edinburgh performance she had such a terribly unhappy expression - extending way beyond the song's ending; she was great, nevertheless.

This time, however, what a difference! There was something extra special in her renditions- and whoever it was must have helped lift her mood. How I'd love to think it was some wonderful man we haven't heard about that was the object of her blown kisses! Whoever it was, I hope this person will be with her for all the concerts., not to mention a constant visitor. I saw more smiling that there has been for a long time. Again, something extra-special in these two performances...
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 21, 2009
aliz, I think Susan probably gets along very well with the younger people on the tour, and I could see them all having fun together. She seems to "think young" judging by her interviews and audition. She's young at heart, that's what I'm trying to say so badly!
Posted by mdillow31 on June 21, 2009

Posted by Linda Sharon on June 21, 2009
You know what - in spite of ALL the pressures through this WHOLE time that Susan's career has started, no matter happy sad nervous afraid etc. etc. - she has come through in sterling fashion in EVERY performance. She's got guts - she did it. If I had to sing before millions whether I was happy/sad/nervous whatever - I'd probably wet myself! She did it - she did it!! That speaks volumes to me about her character, her professinalism and her true grit. She pulled it off! And I belive she will continue to forge ahead and take hold of the dream she dreamed. I think she's terrific.
Posted by ca0911 on June 21, 2009
Points taken re the priest. 'nuff said. On a more positive note, I hope when we get a video of tonight's performance it shows the crowd reaction being so loud it literally drowned out Susan's introduction. Of all the amazing thing about Susan, the fact that young people are relating to someone who sings lyrics that are understandable to music with a recognizable melody proves they are hungry for real music just like the rest of us. I don't know of any performer who has arrived on the scene in the last twenty years who has had this effect on so many people.

Who was Miss Boyle singing to a Wimbly? Whoever it was, it was someone very, very special to her. Virtualy the whole song was for that one person and from what I could see it was more, much more, than just a friend. Miss Boyle had THAT LOOK in her eyes. A look I have never seen in her before.

"Divinity has come to earth! Her voice alone--"the sound awakened them". And her story inspires! And her character is the crowning glory of "a human being" which is what she said taught her to be! Blessings and Love forever!"

"I meant to say her MOTHER taught her to be a human being, so she said in a rare interview."

joyceleo - Thank you so much for saying this. It is 'exactly' what I feel and have felt since Susan's audition. When I watch/hear her sing - as she reaches out to the audience - and the audience spontaneously rises to their feet - without thinking, only feeling - as they are touched by 'something' that they recognize deep within and respond back - a beautiful conversation!!

Thank you again, beautiful!
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@monkeybag , I know I just watched it again. It looks very romantic. At the end she backs away slowly looking in the same direction after blowing another kiss. Might it be a love interest? Maybe someone from her past has come back and rekindled the fire? Inquiring minds want to know. Maybe she is just teasing the audience.

I vote for Piersy baby. I don't think it was her family - they were at the Edinburgh perfomance and, according to Teesiel, they were on her right and she did acknowledge them but not in the way she did today. This was someone totally different. Whoever, it was someone she is VERY fond of - I have rarely seen her smile the whole time she's singing. It was someone quite special. Hmmm.

June 28, 29, 30, July 2nd are BGT tour off days as well. Nine days left in the tour so Susan theoritically has 18 more performances to make THEN she'll be able to devote time for recording her first CD assuming media reports about her performing in the States next month aren't true.

Okay I've studied it all I can. Miss Boyle blows Three kisses to one specific person. At the end she steps forward tp blow the final kiss and keeps her eyes on that person the whole time. She gestures to that person at very interesting verses in the song or looks at that person at equally interesting verses in the song. It sure looks like love or at the very least flirting, to me. Whatever it was that was the happiest I've seen her since the semi-finals and that makes me very happy for her.

Could it be a love interest from the past who has come back to her? Remember when asked about not having been kissed she said she was joking and she would not answer any personal questions. Maybe there was someone a long time ago. Who is that man in the picture posted on this site who she is hugging,could it be him ?
Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009
I've reviewed it a few times now and think it is Piersy baby. she really focused most of her song on the person and I think she was so delighted to see him.

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
Remember when she went to acting school in Edindurgh. Maybe she met someone then. But they broke up because he wanted to get married ,but she wasn't ready for marraige and then she had to go home and take care of her parents . And they lost touch .And he married someone else, but that marraige failed and ended in divorce .And he saw her singing on BGT and then he went to see her and told her his marraige was over and they rekindled their love and he went to her show and he was the one she was blowing kisses too.
Posted by waldog on June 21, 2009
Wow, have you ever thought of writing screenplays?
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
Okay, here's why I think the person Susan "honors" during the singing of "Memory" might be either Webber or Elaine Paige. It's because they both have something to do with the song: Webber as the composer---and Paige as someone who has sung that role. I notice Susan didn't continue blowing kisses during IDAD.

going to bed now. Several observations and questions..

1. Did her music seem better today at Wembley, different versions?, they seemed much better than the other performances. Background musid for IDAD was more like the audition music and less like the awful stuff they played before.

2. She was so on today...how can she improve on perfection, but she does it everytime. Just when you think you've heard the best she betters it..incredible. I'm so soupy about it all that I teared up thinking about her singing Memory while I was driving to the grocery store. I love they way she interprets each song differently every time.

3. While reading everything today I wrote down the tail end of a link planning to go back and look at the pictures mentioned. There was so much going on, I switched back and forth among several things and got lost in the blogs and couldn't find the one that said there were 9 pictures of her at Wembley today... It ended with -1-1.jpg. Am I imagining this or does enyone have a site that has this on the end and it is 9 pictures. HELP.

4. New susan Word: Susanodding..nodding off at the computer while looking for Susanews...I have actually nodded off several times...anybody elso going to confess to that ??? :-) Good night and Love to All
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
Well I also imagine the Piers knew her from years ago,since he is only 4 years younger than her. And she did take singing lessons and did some competitions . So maybe 20 years ago she met Piers and they had an affair and he was surprized to see her again on stage after all those years.But he recognized her and her voice.Thats why he looked at her so sweetly .So now they have unrequitted
love because he is already and a relationship and they have both moved on.But they share this speciall secret of their past love and it is now a platonic relationship but a deep abiding love.

Wamckinley, I have thought it was elaine paige too. She is the singer she really admires. Also wonder when susan is going to do her radio show. i looked today and there was nothing yet.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
@Janet:---I think Susan's singing always sounds better after she's had a rest. So, yes,----I DID think her performance was better today than it has been in other performances. She seems to get better all the time---and I love that she experiments with different techniques. That's exactly what she should use this tour for, IMO. It's a learning experience in many ways, for all of them.
Posted by ArielAZ on June 21, 2009
WAMcKinley: I hope you don't dream about Andrew Lloyd Webber tonight. Eeeew! But isn't our Susan beautiful? So warm, such pure tones. I agree with you about Piers. He is a parasite and doesn't truly love our Susan. He's just too jaded to love, like Simon. You have mail.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
Piers has been married before and has kids. Everyone knows that,---right? And now he's engaged to a much younger woman. Piersy has been around the block any number of times.
Posted by Gail Marie on June 21, 2009
I don't think Susan is trying to lose her accent. For some reason, a person with an accent loses at least part of it when singing. That's why I can understand her better when she sings - she talks so fast, and with the heavy accent .....

The singers of Celtic Thunder sing understandably, but when they're talking in the interview (on PBS) they all have rather strong accents, & talk clipped, so I have to listen really closely to what they're saying to catch it.

I think she's just throwing kisses to the audience as a whole to show her love for them supporting her. She loves people, & is showing that with her smiles, kisses, & opening her arms/hands to them all, not just one person - she does it to people at the side, too.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
Well,thats it.I can't think of anymore senarios. Maybe its all innocent and she was just singing to a family member who was traveling with her. Like one of her sisters or niece.

Hi Everyone

Just read a beautiful article in Huffington Post/Examiner.com, entitled, Susan Boyle Kisses from Wembley, the language of love. Maybe this will settle the question about whom the kisses were for. :)
Posted by Joly on June 21, 2009
About the priest issue: please be careful, because Susan's priests have been wonderful, very supportive and obviously fond of her, while realistically realizing there are potential problems. Her priest told her to go for it and enjoy it, and if it lasts it lasts and if it doesn't it doesn't, but she would still have attained more than most people. Sorry I haven't had a chance to read all the posts, just wanted to make sure we realize that if we don't make sure of facts before taking action, we'll be doing the same thing as the gossip media. The priest who made the zany comments quoted Susan's priest, but apparently does not know either of them.
Posted by Susan43212 on June 21, 2009
Susan comes out on stage not knowing that "someone" is in the audience. Then she glances to her right as if that someone called her. After Susan recognizes the person, she sings to that someone. My guess is Elaine Page, her idol. Elaine would have celebrity status that could get her front row seats to Susan's concert. I think Elaine has great admiration for Susan's talent and it only stands to reason that Elaine would want to attend a concert to see Susan sing live. I hope it was Elaine Page.
Posted by lyddieb on June 21, 2009
I'm hoping that someone, over the past few days, has sat Susan down and showed her some of the tour videos...does she yet understand the impact she's making, all aside from what we know and love of her from April? I've been enchanted since her audition video left me sobbing in front of my computer screen, but I was still totally unprepared for the depth and sophistication and sheer power of her whole persona in these tour performances, as so well caught by teesiel's close-ups in Edinburgh. She needs to SEE how absolutely stunning she is, in every sense of the word, how everything she's putting into these performances is WORKING. No, those wolf whistles are NOT sarcastic anymore!

Posted by WAMcKinley on June 21, 2009
@lyddieb: You're so absolutely right about Susan's impact! I, too, hope she's been able to view some videos of her performance. However, we were told that no filming was being done of this tour. I can't imagine nothing is being filmed at all;---but what we get are illegal videos shot from cell phones smuggled into the performances. Makes me wonder, then, if there HAS been anything for her to see. Too bad if she can't know what we all have seen and are raving over!
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 21, 2009
@Bev . Do you have the link
Posted by ArielAZ on June 21, 2009
Surely, there's a computer in Susan's London flat. The BGT staffers popping in would have to have computer access. Instead of collapsing, we find Susan has been to a recording studio, is busy choosing her CD songs, has met Webber and who knows else, is grooming herself--so I think she must be becoming computer savvy as well.

Posted by DR on June 21, 2009
ArielAZ - exactly the same scenario I see. And maybe Webber has personally coached Susan on her new rendition of Memories, so she sang it to him.

Susan's old confidence appears to be back. The first I've seen of it since the semi-finals. Something very positive happened to her while she was on this break.

Just my thoughts - if Webber, Paige, or Morgan had been in that audience, I think it would have made the papers by now. Someone would have noticed them I think.
Posted by dyebat on June 21, 2009
Yet another scenario: She sees Elaine Paige,blows her a kiss, Elaine returns it, & Susan blows her another. Sitting next to Elaine is Simon Cowell. Unknown to everyone, on her days off Susan has been tutoring Simon in the course her Mother taught her, "How to be a Human". Unfortunately, Simon is a VERY slow learner, so she had to take extra days off to get him up to speed. When she assigned him to write a letter of apology to the Daily Mail for the children who cried, he cheated & copied most of it from his publicist, Max Clifford. She gave him one last extra credit assignment to bring Elaine Paige to the show in his limousine, and at least he did that right. So she blew him a kiss, which was his mid-term grade.

(And Simon charged Elaine for gas, after the program.)
Posted by tweek on June 21, 2009
AerilAZ, where have you see that she has been to a recording studio lately and has met with Webber. I have not picked up any of that. The last I read she was going to Pargue to record, where Paul Potts made his last two albumns. I know about 3-4 weeks ago she met with Weber, but I had not seen anything more on it. I did see an article that she had a new dress/costume designer and they even named him specifically but I lost the link on it. If anyone has it, please let me know!
Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009
ArielAZ I agree, no way in today's society would a flat not be wired for internet access. Susan Boyle is a fast learner, and I bet she's seen the You Tube video by now and knows a little bit about computers. Even my mIL who is 60 got her own computer and taught herself to use the net, email and much more. Susan probably doesn't get the whole gone viral thing, but it will click one day.

Lets hope she will one day get an email and we can then email her questions and perhaps she will respond to them.

Diana Gabaldon (www.dianagabaldon.com) writes historical romance with two characters, Jamie and Claire. She corresponds with her fans and readers about what will happen with her up coming characters in the books. If she has time to do it, then Susan will too.

I think we have had an effect. I just reviewed a couple google pages of current articles and they are all factual and reasonable in tone. In Entertainment,Mirror, Press Assn (2), gawker, the Sun, Daily Express UK, Scotsman (did headline 'troubled Boyle', but ok), the NY Times did say she has become a regular hospital patient and was not so factual but was not malignant, digital spy, daily star. Thank you media, for sticking to facts and reasonable attitude.

SUSAN BOYLE - "SUPERSTAR"
Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009
dyebat I'm not being washy here, but it could be Elaine, she does live in london and she might have come to see her perform. The kisses were directed to one specific person. She looked at the person, blew a kiss, then did it again. And at the end it was done slower and she had her eyes fixed on the person. Even during the song she sang it to that one person. I think it's either Elaine Paige or Piersy baby.

Posted by sassyone on June 21, 2009

I've viewed Memory again, but have just discovered I can blow it up full screen. So - now I've seen that right at the beginning of the song she nods her head very gently to 'whoever' as if agreeing with them.

Also noticed that if the tour lasts much longer they will need to make her a new dress. This one is becoming waaaay to big for her.

I agree, also her eyes focus on that spot to the right, like she recognize him/her. I've checked Pier's blog, it says he's taking a well deserved break from writing it. So, now what? I guess we wait and if a fan or someone says anything interesting about her kisses. Shrugs. I'm so confused now.

I agree. It is still a very nice article, though.
Posted by dyebat on June 21, 2009
DR, I thought maybe that's why they used it. The silver dress looks like the seams could be taken in pretty easily. Since that's about all we're seeing of her, it's like watching a caterpillar in a cocoon, waiting for it to come out as a butterfly.
Posted by tweek on June 21, 2009
Thanks DR, I am a little slow to pick up on the dream land here tonite. I had a thought...we should send Pier's mother a picture of his "flame" picture and tell her he is simply not acting his age. And, then we should ask her what she thinks of G.F. vrs Susan Boyle...I bet she picks Susan.
Posted by dyebat on June 21, 2009
I heard a phone interview yesterday with Piers, & they asked him what his family thought of it. He answered, "My mother is bemused, my father is confused, and my 2 brothers have left the country."

Posted by treesmary on June 21, 2009
WAMcKinley, Piers is not engaged unless he has become so quietly in the last couple of weeks. Did you read this? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1149507/Piers-Morgan-divorce-marriage-image-problem--battle-king-TV-chat.html And in an interview on May 26 Amanda asked him what his "fiancee-to-be" thought about Susan's jig, as he calls it.

I do not know Piers's inner motives nor what feelings really exist between him and Susan, but consider this:
If Piers showed interest in a woman just because she was smashingly beautiful, would people complain, "Oh, he just loves her because she is beautiful?" Probably not, even though beauty is not lasting. Should a man be scorned because he finds fame and fortune to be attractive attributes? Susan could be helped by someone who is comfortable in the world of fame and fortune. Piers has also recognized and spoken with admiration of Susan's sweetness, humor, fortitude, talent, graciousness, and selfless devotion to others. He has been delighted and honored by her attention. Imagine how enchanted you might be if she were singing live straight to you. I don't think he deserves to be condemned too hastily for showing interest in her.
Posted by dyebat on June 21, 2009
Sassyone, it's the Rant he's supposedly taking a a break from and that notice has been up for a month. Normally he writes something on Monday, so I'd expect something later.

At the end of the Memory Song on one of the video's the camera moves quickly to the left then back to Susan, going right by the people to her right. If you blow it up and freeze the video, it looks to me like a woman and a child are right where Susan is looking. Try it and see what you see, it is blurry and dark so who knows. Looks to me like friends or family, maybe. Well, it's fun playing detective. It will be interesting to see if someone does post the answer, but I have enjoyed all the scenarios presented this evening. Always fun to stop by the 'village'. Kisses to all and to all a good night.

DR, yes, it took me a while to get the clearest point. I can see a blonde head that looks like it could be a teen and just to the right of that head is a dark head, that looks female by the haircut and is looking up toward Susan and to her right is a very small head of a child. that's how I interpret it, anyway. No way to really know of course. But Susan looked so happy there, whoevere it turns out to be we are glad they were there for her. Her smile has been missed. Well, I'm off to bed, looking forward to the postings of the evening concert tomorrow.

Two-thirty A.M. here; still restless over hearing Susan sing yesterday with these lyrics now swimming in head:

Like a child, you whisper softly to me. You're
In control just like a child, now I'm dancing.
It's like a dream, no end and no beginning.
You're here with me, it's like a dream. Let
The choir sing.

When you call my name, it's like a little
Prayer. I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you
There. In the midnight hour, I can feel your
Power, just like a prayer. You know I'll take
You there.

Just like a prayer, I'll take you there. It's
Like a dream to me. Just like a prayer, I'll
Take you there. It's like a dream to me. Just
Like a prayer, I'll take you there. It's like
A dream to me. Just like a prayer, I'll take
You there. It's like a dream to me.

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me
There. Just like a muse to me, you are a
Mystery. Just like a dream, you are not what
You seem. Just like a prayer, no choice,
Your voice can take me there.

"Like A Prayer" Madonna

- Perfect for Susan to sing to us SOONER rather than later.

pagepage - I might have the answer to the mystery. If it was, indeed, a mother and child, it could be her niece, Jacqueline Houston? I seem to remember the fact that early on, at the time of the Priory stay, Susan became really concerned about one of her relatives who had collapsed after giving birth to a baby boy. I think that it was her niece and she may have an older child, I am not sure? Just a hunch. If it is, sorry to dispel all those of you who believed that Susan might have a new beau.
I am sure that she only has eyes for Piersy Baby, especially after seeing his manly torso in THAT advert! HaHaHA! Only joking!

And thanks for everyone who has made it possible for us all to see the videos from THE TOUR. I do believe the Wembley "Memory" was the absolute best so far. Goodness gracious! Those last few soaring notes! I do hope when she comes to America, she will choose either New Orleans or Memphis for one of her venues. That would be too good to be true! Susan makes me even prouder of my Scots-Irish heritage. Am glad to see that there are so many people who love Susan as much as I do! I am among friends. AM I NOT?!

I think before anyone begins to write to these priests,--maybe you should get straight who they

all are. Susan's priest in her hometown of Blackburn is Father Haluka. Father Basil Clark is the

dean of West Lothian---and has accompanied Susan on the annual pilgrimage to the Marian Shrine in Knock, Ireland. I have no idea who "Father Tim" is,---except he seems to have a column in the "Irish Central" publication. Just thought you might want to get these "Fathers" separated and clarified.

@treesmary I agree with your statement, "I do not know Piers's inner motives nor what feelings really exist between him and Susan, but consider this: If Piers showed interest in a woman just because she was smashingly beautiful, would people complain, "Oh, he just loves her because she is beautiful?" Probably not, even though beauty is not lasting. Should a man be scorned because he finds fame and fortune to be attractive attributes? Susan could be helped by someone who is comfortable in the world of fame and fortune. Piers has also recognized and spoken with admiration of Susan's sweetness, humor, fortitude, talent, graciousness, and selfless devotion to others. He has been delighted and honored by her attention. Imagine how enchanted you might be if she were singing live straight to you. I don't think he deserves to be condemned too hastily for showing interest in her."

This bashing Piers Morgan, and also Simon Cowell, and bashing Las Vegas by saying it is a town of drunks etc is insulting. Insulting to the wonderful people that perform here and live here in Las Vegas. To the few of you who do this, all I can say is why don't you crawl back under your rocks and stay there so that the rest of us can enjoy the happiness that Susan Boyle has brought into our lives, and do all we can to support Susan Boyle Most don't want to hear all your negative, ugly remarks. Some of the people on this site aren't any different than the 'Rags' that they are condemning. I am getting pretty sick of it. What right do a few on this fan site have to knock people and places right and left like they are God, and we have to hear them pass judgement. That is just nastiness and really does nothing to honor Susan Boyle.

@BethinTheUSA - **I was rather offended by Father Tim's blog entry on IrishCentral.com. I found it extremely condescending since he advises Susan that she doesn't belong out in the world, to go back home to Blackburn and forget her dream:**

I do believe Father Tim was referring to the "toxic abuse of the british press" which, due to its utter ferociousness, would be traumatic for (even) the most media savvy entertainer to endure let alone someone as innocent as Susan.

As we know, Susan reularly went on retreat (pilgrimage) to "our lady of knocks" (Ireland) for spiritual renewal, and Father Tim was advising that this would be good for her now to get away from the intense media pressure. I didn't read in that article that he was advising her to give up her career per se...just that she doesn't have to pursue her career under such toxic conditions. I agree!

It is not really the thread, but still it is about "Memory", (and Elaine Paige)...

I am so glad, that Elaine wants to sing with our Susan - the "combination" of those two *STARS* can only be fantastic!!!

I just saw Elaine here :

I think perhaps some people appear to want to put Susan in a guilded cage. She is not an idiot, and blind Freddy can see that she and Piers are good friends and that the game they play, and it is a game, is one which is played by lots of friends the world over. Believe it or not it is possible for men and women to have affection for each other and indeed to flirt with each other and for it to be no more than that.Piers is not tying with her, and to imply that she is has expectation like some 13 year old school girl is downright insulting to her. Piers may be, as he says himself, a bit of a pratt, but also has the reputation of being a loyal friend. Do not insult Susan by implying she is does not have the ability to choose her own friends. She does. No one here has the right to censure her friendships, nor her right to a bit of affectionate banter. The odd tongue in cheek comment in the same vein as the game they play is fine, but please, do try not to let your imaginations run away with you. Susan is not a child, so please do stop talking about her as if she is. She is a strong gutsy, funny, loving, independent minded woman.

Good morning Susanites! Abour 6:45 a.m. here in the Bluegrass state, hot and muggy.

I see there's much speculation about who our girl is throwing kisses to, and I imagine we'll find out sooner or later. I counted 5 kisses in all, way more than she gave her family in Edinburgh. Like everyone else, I'm wondering if Susan has a beau. That would be lovely for her, as long as he is worthy and treats her like the treasure she is. I'm sure she's getting plenty of male attention, and that's always nice. If you'll notice, after one of the kisses the audience went ooooooh, like they knew who it was.

Anyway, so delighted to see our dear one looking well and happy, and the audience receiving her so ecstatically. She deserves that and so much more.
Posted by LucyB on June 22, 2009
And Good morning from Massachusetts---what a delight it was to see Susan's afternoon performance at Wembley---she was MAGNIFICENT!! And the object of alllll the kisses has NOT been identified---where are all the good detectives when you need one!!???

Obviously, her days of rest agreed with her; wouldn't it be interesting to know all the details of her activities over these past few days---was she working on her record?, did she sign any more contracts?, how's Pebbles? who has she been discussing her future plans with? Sometime today, I would hope that the videos of the Wembley evening performances also appear. It will be fun to compare the 2 performances on the same day. Susan is beyond compare and will continue to improve----a very positive story that will be a delight to follow no matter what the rest of the world is doing!! WE'll see what the day brings----and then we also have Paul's new SB site to look forward to, whenever he decides to unveil it---ahhhh, the burdens we must bear as dedicated Susan Boyle fans!!!!
Posted by MisTia on June 22, 2009
@Poconorose(USA)- I am one of those who said a few days ago that she shouldn't sing in Las Vegas; I still stand by that statement. It's nothing hurtful, I just don't believe it would be good, at this point in her career, to sing at a casino. If she could sing in Las Vegas in a concert hall like Carnegie I wouldn't mind at all; any city will do as long as the venue is appropriate and casino is not for me. I just wanted to clarify that it's not LV that I mind, it's the venue that they've chosen; if they said casino in NY I'd still be against it.

As for Piers and Simon, I kept my mouth shut on these two because I like them. I know most people here have issues with one or the other, but I actually like both of them. I think Susan knows who both of them are, real businessmen, especially Simon, and Piers might end up being a good friend which would be great as he 'swims' in those waters quite well so he can give her a hand or advice here and there. Just my take on that.
Posted by Poconorose(USA) on June 22, 2009
YES, pickled tink!!!!! Thank you for your post in regards to a few people appearing to want to put Susan in a guilded cage. Wow, you certainly know how to express your opinion, and get right to the truth of the matter in a very nice way.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 22, 2009
Re my comment about Piers earlier. It was a bit of banter, nothing more. In fact, I have already stated in previous posts my admiration for Piers and the way that he has defended Susan IS to be admired and not scorned nor criticised. I would never 'bash' Piers as he has consistently proved to be a loyal friend to Susan. If she indeed has a beau, he is one lucky fella and I hope that he treats her with the love and respect that she truly deserves. I doubt that it was Piers in the audience, though, for he is presently involved in AGT but if it was he, then that truly is devotion for he would have needed to fly back in some hurry to attend the concert.
PS I did not intend to imply that she has not the right to select who she befriends and, if that is what people have read into my post, I apologise.

Did a search in this blog for the word "priest"...46 times, many very offeneded that "her" priest had said this. I've finally learned to search on a topic before I post since often my amazingly wise :) comment has probably been posted. If someone just read one post and started writing to her home church priest...ouch! Is this something a "moderator" would be instructed to research and quickly squelch? Ah, the world of the fan blog is so new to me, but I wouldn't give it up for all the tea in Scotland :) A lot of us have had things "read between our lines" here and been blasted for something we had no intention of saying. Pray for the Priests and her old friends who are probably terrified for her.

"They're gonna put me in the Movies, They're gonna make a big star out of me..." Hey! what about it? The Susan Boyle Movie. Starring none other than 'Susan Boyle'. "All I gotta do is act naturally" She has beauty, style, grace, charisma, a real sense of humor, and a whole lotta fans. That's gotta be worth more than the going rate!(What is that? 20 or 30 Million these days). C'mon get those offers on the table! It's about time! She's been basically working for free up untill now, with all these hundreds of millions of Youtube hits and whatnot. Work is the keyword here. You just don't get to sing like that without a whole lot of hard work. God Bless you Susan Boyle.

SUSAN, I pray that God will continue to give you favour, even from your enemies (especially the vicious tabloid press people). May your rest day today renew your strength.

Posted by mclim on June 22, 2009
I imagine she is wearing the same gown because it is most likely provided and paid for by BGT. Remember these are very new stars and they have not made money yet. At least not big money. Also is the idea that under normal circumstances it probably doesn't matter because they are performing at different locations all the time. The fans usually only see them in dress once. But with Susan we aren't satisfied with once, we want to see her at every performance.

Wait until this tour is all over and we will see different gowns, when she is out on her own singing at her own concerts. I don't care what she wears. She could be wearing that gold dress from audition and I would still think she looks beautiful.

Well, pickled tink, everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion about Piers and Simon as on everything else. I believe holding both of them in contempt, as a number of us do, cannot in reality be equated with wanting to keep Susan in a gilded cage. I surely hope that is not what you meant to say. I accept all those who like, admire, or whatever, either or both of these men freely expressing their opinion to that effect. Without, however, giving up my right to disagree and say so, expressing my opinion that they are bottom feeders. I won't define what you are trying to do by expressing your liking for them if you won't try to define what I mean by expressing my distaste for them.

Yours in Susalove,

mclim, in regards to the gown, BGT provides each contestant with their gowns, but they also have more than one (but they are identical). They treat each contestant the same way, though I believe a lot more money was put into the design of her dress than some of the other costumes. Rest assured! She has a new designer working on some clothes for her. I saw the article, but have not found the link.
Posted by saoirse ciara on June 22, 2009
Foodhistorian -- Glad that someone besides me hates that grey dress. In fact, my cousin and I refer to it ads "the grey whale dress." It should be consigned to the oblivion it so richly deserves. The contestants on American Idol wear different outfits each week so why can't she have a change of gowns. Is BGT really that cheap?
Posted by Lonnirose on June 22, 2009
Re Susan's wardrobe: I read (yeah, I know) that the same designer is preparing her clothes who does Cher and Carol Burnett - Bob Macke, is that his name? So we can expect some snazzy outfits to come if that is the case. He seems to be the preferred designer for the big stars, from what I understand.

Our girl is having a well-deserved day off and here's hoping she gets a good rest, or doing something that pleases her.
Posted by mclim on June 22, 2009
@tweek Well isn't that something that they would have a bunch of the same exact gowns made. That doesn't make much sense. The style is OK but if they made a whole bunch of them they could have at least varied the colors a little. I thought it was probably just sent out and cleaned between performances.
Posted by delly on June 22, 2009
Some of us here are old enough to be realistic. No one is trying to tell Susan who she can be friends with. Just saying that Piers is a man of the world. He likes young, sexy women. He left his wife for one. Susan is not experienced in these matters. She says she's never really been kissed. She has always lived in a small town and sure isn't used to the "ways of the world". I just don't think Piers is romantically interested in Susan. I think he is playing along to keep her happy. He may be a bit flattered but we haven't heard of him breaking up with his young lady friend, nor has he taken Susan out on the date he promised. I think his interest is purely platonic where Susan is concerned. I've been around this old world a long time and been around the block a few times with romance. I've also had a crush on someone that hurt a bit. Piers may be her friend but will never be anything more.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 22, 2009
Hi Food Historian : I like the 'silver rag'dress as you call it. These performances are not supposd to be broadcast and so it's anew audience every night. I think Susan looks like an apparition in this shimmering gown. Besides which - at the Scotts frugal? It's a perfectly good dress. It can go in the Susan museum some day. Actually I'd like Tracey London and partner from What Not To Wear show (American/Canadian viewers will know the show) fly over (leave the garbage can portion of show at home) and buy her flocks of clothes taylored for the awesome Miss Boyle. Things just right for her like that gorgeous beige outfit she had on from her shopping trip. Then I'd hire someone to give her a message twice a day before her afternoon nap and night time. Also a fun movie a day like My Blue Heaven/ John Candy movies etc. to make her to the Suan giggle.Then as part of her happy program to come here to this site and read all the positive postings and see our adoration. Oh ya and they'd have to hire me as her new best friend too. Well I can dream a dream too you know. Back to reality - I'm running late and need to wash my hair and get the heck to work. Cheers...and God bless and keep Susan.

This is a time when Susan can step up to a higher profile. She can always go to Vegas later on. Donny by the way has accepted an offer to go to Broadway.

Welll, another tidbit for the kiss detectives ---I just watched her Wembley afternoon IDAD, which followed her Memory, and Susan did NOT throw any kisses. So, as a wild guess, I would say that the kiss-recepient was actually associated with the song "Memory". IF he/she were a favorite family member, wouldn't she have continued to toss them kisses during her IDAD?? OH, we will solve this deepening mystery.
Posted by DR on June 22, 2009
I think Susan should dress Susan. If she wants help, she will ask for it. I like susan how she is and I want her to wear what she is comfortable in.

Her brother said she likes fashion, but insinuated her taste was a little different. I don't care - my taste is different too and I could give a hoot if anybody else likes it. I feel no need to follow the crowd, and if Susan sets a new fashion trend, more power to her. I will follow Susan's style and buy clothes that mimic hers. Please, please , someone send me a shimmery silver dress :-)

delly, I wouldn't be surprised if a romance started to grow between Susan and one of those handsome men you see surrounding her in her photos. What man could resist her lovable nature, and the fact that she is picked on unfairly by the press would bring out the protective instincts in many a man, just as it has in all of us here. Also, I'm sure there are others we haven't seen in the photos, i.e., members of her security team and other people she sees almost every day. Of course I'm an incurable romantic, but if I were single and surrounded by a bunch of great big lovely men every day....

Susan's handling of the evening performance of Memory was certainly an answer to her being in control. How many singers with the limited stage time she has would have been able to pull that off so wonderfully. And to go on with the strongest performance of both songs after that...Whew, she is GREAT. Yep..had to "shout."
Posted by MisTia on June 22, 2009
@tweek - yes, precisely so. A person or persons with an already established career can easily perform in LV; it won't affect them at all as they already have a certain background in the form of the things they've done. Vegas would be just a stop. Susan is just beginning and with the tabbies on her back like this, I think she should not do so now but wait. Let her get a few of the big places on her bio first, and I am sure she will get to them soon. There is no rush.

PS I think Terry Fator still performs in LV; he won AGT the year before last and he is absolutely brilliant! I definitely recommend people checking him out - he's a ventriloquist but nothing like you've ever seen. True artist. And AGT starts tomorrow, should be fun! :)

I went back and read the article that Tommy brought up on Piers: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1149507/Piers-Morgan-divorce-marriage-image-problem--battle-king-TV-chat.html
What it seems to me is that his 3 children are the most important thing to him right now, and that it should be. The kids have been thru a divorce and maybe Piers will learn what would benefit him the most with his ex-wife and children is to have someone on his side like Susan (not necessarily Susan). The children need to be able to have respect for their Dad's new soul mate, and sometimes its very helpful for their character to be around someone with inner beauty as well, and also to be with people that are witty and fun loving (as we know Susan can be). They don't need to see their Dad with a younger prettier persona raising more little siblings that take away from their importance to their father. Piers is a Hollywood dude and those individuals often go thru multiple spouses before or if ever finding true happiness. But speaking from experience in my own life (where I married someone just like Piers, who was equally egotistical, and who had been in the Hollywood era, as well as television, who also has 6 wifes.) Sometimes, they wake up and settle for the plain Jane, who is just average, but can also be a friend and help him establish a better relationship with their children and ex-wife. Hopefully, Piers will grow to find a truer meaning with his life, whether it be with Susan or not. The morale of my story is we have now been married 29 years and also have one son together. I believe, no matter what, Susan and Piers will have a strong bond, if no other reason than friendship. They have similar ties to their families, including parents. I never knew that until I read this article.
My story is a true story.

We need not to fantisise for either Susan or Piers. And, thankgoodness, the stars and press agents do not read all our gossip pages so I have been told.

Ha ha ha, ponylady, you’re getting a bit fussy aren’t you??? A search???

Join the circus. Jump in. Run with the pack after a little factoid (more ‘oid’ than ‘fact’) and have a rant/ball. Aren’t these priests all the same? I mean, one’s obviously as good as another – the Basil/Timbo/Ryzard ‘collar’ - why distinguish? Now we’ve even got an address for shooting off our brickbats!!! Sharpen the pens, gals. I’m sure Susan would be proud of us all. Way. To. Go!

Hang on, ponylady, did you say .... “Pray for the priests and her old friends who are probably terrified for her”??? You li’l ol’ alarmist you. Danny G reckons “She has found a world of people who truly love her”. Yup. Guess so. All the confidence and spark with which Susan marched onto that stage out of the bosom of her family and church was gone ... by the idyllic Priory weekend. Faint glimmers of her smile are only re-emerging now. The “people who truly love her” have made a great job of it so far! Puts those pesky priests and brothers and sisters to shame. The world/those who love her, will surely ‘fix up’ the cowed down ‘mess’ that was Susan Boyle it first saw one night in April 2009 ....... surely ??

@MisTia Everyone has a right to their opinion as to what they think is best for Susan's career. I agree, Carnagie Hall is great, and concert halls are great, Broadway is great. You are absolutely right. What you want for Susan is wonderful. Your comment about not thinking Las Vegas what the right place for her to start out didn't offend me at all. What offended me were comments like Las Vegas is a city of 'boozers'. I just have a different opinion and feel she can do what you want for her after she has made many, millions of dollars. Goodness gracious, Terry Fator(Winner of America's Got Talent) is making 100 million dollars a YEAR for the next 5 years at the Gorgeous Mirage. He has a showroom all to himself that seems like it is half the size of a football field. My husband and I really enjoyed going to his show.

I have said earlier that she doesn't have a 40 year career ahead of her. She needs to make the most amount of money, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of effort. She can't knock herself out traveling around the world with her cat from concert hall to concert hall like some kind of 'Roadie'

Las Vegas is pretty much the Entertainment Capital of the world. If she is put up in a gorgeous high class showroom at a luxurious Strip Hotel Casino Showroom on the Las Vegas Strip in my opinion that is a good thing. She could live in a beautiful home, and be driven by limo to perform and be home at night with Pebbles. Then she flies home to Scotland regularly to be with her family and they can fly to visit her. Let her make millions in a a short time, instead of dragging herself around the world and knocking herself out for peanuts. While this is going on she will have time to go to the recording studio's to make Album's/Cd's and that money will start to roll in and she can stop performing in Las Vegas or any place else if she wants to. The money she can make here for even a brief engagement would be fantastic.

I certainly did mean to hurt your feelings. If you feel Las Vegas isn't the way to go that is OK. There are some like I said, referred to Las Vegas as a town of drunks and that was offensive. I remember Las Vegas when the population was 40,000 people. Las Vegas is an amazing city and a wonderful place to live.

If Susan does come to Las Vegas we will be there opening night!
Yep, I like Pier's Morgan and Simon Cowell also.

OHMY---for those who know how, the 2nd picture that "judyann" posted shows the front row audience and the way the piece is written it IS Wembley afternoon. Can that pic be taken and just those in the front row get blown up in some fancy photo program???
I just watched Tommys Wembley evening proformance and as per usual, Susan was BRILLIANT, however, NO kisses for the audience. So we're narrowing it down to possibly someone in the above picture. March on, all good detectives!!!

@judyann I looked at that picture and I'm not sure how anyone could see anybody. I couldn't make out one face on the left side in that picture and I thought Simon was in Ascot?

Tommy...awesome site. Thank you!!
Posted by Randma on June 22, 2009
Finally made it through the almost 500 posts up to this point and have 2 thoughts.
1. I agree that the recipients of her kisses were most likely family/friends such as her lawyer niece. Also, Piers was undoubtedly already in USA since his AGT show begins Tuesday. (Anyway, based on the article posted here a few days in which his girlfriend Celia expressed her anger over the semifinal kiss, I think Piers would have to have broken up with her before showing up at a Susan performance.)
2. Speaking of Piers, I believe, as pickledtink stated above, that Susan and Piers are actually just friends who like to joke. Their kiss was just a fun game, started by his compliment (stating she looked absolutely beautiful) then her "Piersy Baby" wiggle onstage after winning, and concluding when he called to her backstage as she was excitedly celebrating a fantastic win. He wants to promote not only himself, but also her, by getting her on AGT later this summer. Their friendship has much win-win potential professionally for both of them.
Posted by DR on June 22, 2009
judyann - yes, you are right. It does look like Simon, and while he is center left in the photo, he is to the right of the mic. However, I am not sure he is far enough to the right to be the kiss recipient.

Just listened to the evening performance on Tommy's new site. Magnificient!!! Her absolute best yet. Wish I could have seen her better - the video is poor, but the sound was good enough to hear her well. Saw lots of cellphones there, I'm sure we will get some really good videos later. FANTASTIC!!!
Posted by mclim on June 22, 2009

Well, all you good folks in Europe and USA are up and working now. It's 1:30am for me tho. Keep an eye on our Susan for me while I get my beauty sleep, and I'll take over for you tomorrow while you sleep.

Wonder if Susan knows we are all taking it in shifts watching over her day and night :-)

OMG! Just watched Tommy's video of Susan's evening performance and I'll tell you folks it wasn't just tears, I was sobbing!

Hello, Susan fans. This site is really picking up. Thank you very much! I have noticed your talk on Susan’s former priest. Personally, I thought his column was rather presumptuous and quite unethical, but I do not know much about private priests as they are public servants in my country (Denmark), and they would never discuss their parishioners’ private affairs. The very best comment from a padre yet is this one on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb992ReK2rg
Have any of you seen it? What do you think of it? I thought it was a great sermon, but I am unsure of his denomination, though.
Posted by mclim on June 22, 2009

Nice to see (well, sort of!) the evening performance. She seems to do a little shimmy there for them all but it's hard to see properly. I really think people walk into the mobile phone shop and say 'here's a load of cash, please give me the worst quality phone you sell!'.

@Poconorose(USA)- oh I must have missed those posts, that definitely was not a nice thing to say at all! I'm a Euro and even I know Las Vegas is a great city; if I had the money to visit the US, I would certainly pop by there as well. And you've seen Terry Fator?! Oh wow, lucky you! Is he as good live as he is on TV? I adore the man, he really deserved to win that year, so later on when I read he made it big I was very happy for him. He is the most successful winner of all of these shows, money vise at least but good on him!

I agree with what you say actually. The only reason I mention Carnegie etc, is that Susan seemed to want to be a stage singer or something of the kind. With all the hullabaloo following her and some of the comments I have read I just thought that if she wished to perform like that, she should stick to the concert halls, at least for a start. If on the other hand that has changed, we don't know her obviously or her plans, but if it has, then Vegas would indeed be the place to go. And you are correct about her age, she doesn't have 40 years to build a career like a 20 year old would. It is possible that her manager, Simon and co have actually sat down and discussed all these issues, and many more, with her so they are going to be concentrating on making money for all of them, and getting her to the broader audience. I love musicals, but let's face it, it is not an extremely popular thing. People are willing to listen to a song, but the whole thing? Hmm. It's a tough call.

And I still can't believe you saw Terry live! :D

@ bibi. Your thoughts are well received. We are all very different and all love Susan. Just try that search tho (only one I ever did) and see how much mis-information we posted. All the family and Blackburn info we discuss is complete speculation. Discussions are great and fun, but condemning people Susan loves..not so great and certainly no fun for her.
Posted by bibi _ 36 on June 22, 2009
@ PoulsanDK, but you are joining in this "quite unethical" column, are you not? You are even talking about a "former priest". That's new. You are ADDING to the discussion.

Father Holuka is Susan's current priest. Fr Tim has written an essay. Fr Basil Clark has given an interview.

Who is Susan's "former priest"? Do you know?

Many would agree with you that religion is a private matter, but there have been articles purporting to quote a couple of these men in the press and one written by the third. The BeliefNet blog contains misinformation. Not knowing that, some people here were criticising her current parish priest for saying some negative things about Susan, when he didn't say them at all. Out of fairness to Father Holuka, several of us tried to clarify the situation some hours ago.

Whether people like it or not, religion, as with most things about Susan, are 'out there' and up for discussion.

An early part of this blog was an object lesson in finding out the facts if possible, before having a strong reaction against someone who may have been misrepresented or maligned in the press.

If it's not possible, silence is golden.
Posted by chrisk on June 22, 2009
Not everyone loves Las Vegas. I personally detest it. Nothing personal, Poconorose, it is just not to my taste at all. I hope if Susan comes to the US, she appears somewhere besides Las Vegas.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 22, 2009
"Memory," - once again I think that last night's rendition of that beautiful song was better than that sung by any other singer that I have heard and, when you take it account the false start, it becomes an even more remarkable achievement. A truly professional performance.
A thought has just occurred to me about that performance, though. The music must have been taped - no orchestra. If that tape had been the method used at Susan's semi final, a la Karaoke, which of course Susan is well used to, then I don't think that her false start that night would have happened at all. She had, after all, little real time to get used to singing with full orchestral accompaniment, so it is little wonder that her timing and phrasing might have been a bit off. Water under the bridge now but it might explain things. I don't know - as I say just a thought.
Brilliant IDAD again. Talk about a signature tune - it will be now and forever associated with Susan in the same way as other stars and their signature tunes e.g. "Thanks for the Memory" and Bob Hope or "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and Judy Garland. So I guess that IDAD will most likely be her debut CD title, although I still favour "And that's just one side of me!"
Thanks again, Tommy. What a star you are!

Well...about Piers, don't know him, hadn't even heard about him before
Susan appeared on BGT...BUT I surely didn't appreciate his comments at
the finals...thought and felt it was totally inappropriate...publicly, in front of millions of people, after Susan had just given us her best and had gone through pretty rough times...it felt to me as if he was scolding a young child for her bad behavior and boyling uo, blowing up...I thought and felt it so very inappropriate ...for many many reason...after he is supposed to be
"experienced"...

Posted by terijay on June 22, 2009
I vote for the recepient of all the loving kisses as being Piers Morgan. He lives in London, and this would have been his local chance to see Susan live before he leaves to start AGT on the 23rd.
She seems delighted to see him, as it is a surprise. And as I have heard many interviews with Piers on tv of late here in L.A.,ahead of the AGT launch he NEVER shuts about talking about Susan. If it was Piers, believe me, we will hear about it soon enough from HIM

Ponylady, I am in agreeance with you:) Was just using satire to elaborate on your points. They were well received by me. My first post today was as a result of having done a search sometime in April to find out just who this Father Basil Clark was and on seeing Father Holuka being confused with him this morning (Oz time) posted to let people know. Several others did the same.

The ease with which speculation morphs into fact is truly scary.

Yes Danny, I concede that there's a big distinction to draw, one that you have often made and one which I share with you. I also am cognizant of the great love that many people have for her - especially on this site - sometimes being reduced to tears on reading the effort some valiant fans put in here defending Susan against stuff written in the gutter press. The love is a palpable thing and she must get some sense of it at these concerts and if she has any idea of the number of fans she has.

I suppose my reference to your post was a reaction to your inference that this love was more genuine perhaps than that of those who loved her in her earlier life - including the religious people so important in her formation. Having been through it myself, I know there can be negatives, but there are also great positives and wisdom offered by the various religious traditions and Susan still derives strength and comfort from hers. Just witness the photograph where she arrives for a concert, her hand waving to the photographer and wound around it were rosary beads. Might have been her mothers? At any rate, they, along with her mother's wedding band she wears on her person, symbolising family and church - have been the symbols of her two most formative influences to date making her the Susan we all admire and support.

You know if simon was there at the show i wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't someone high up in show business(talent scout for singers to see her stage presence and other talents she has as she brings in the audience) or the one she wants to be as successful as and that is elaine paige. Simon does feel somewhat responsible to susan and very well be making some of her dreams come true for dear susan. You know I have watched the interviews susan has given and she states 5 goals she has and they are 1. sing in a show 2. sing with elaine paige 3. sing to make others happy 4.sing for the queen 5. make an album. I think singing in a show, and making others happy is been achieved from her performances and the singing for the queens is coming but a little later and singing with elaine and doing a cd is rolled into one. I think she will do more shows and put out a spectacular cd. You see from my perspective susan has been reaching her goals, one baby step at a time so these shows have helped herin beginning to reach those goals and she knows it. Look at the fabulous performances she has done in every one and just gets better and better with each one of them. Any talent scout would see that she has fanonimal stage presence with her audiences. and will be ready to use those skills in the best situation possible. That scout also knows to ignore the press as susan has learned to do. Her main goal was to make others happy and we can all say she certainly has done that. This tour has been her spring board for reaching all these goaals and she my dear friends knows it. And her audiences have given her such positive feedback and telling her to keep on doing more! she is that good, So you see the tabloids don't matter here! Susan is seeing for her very own eyes what we think of her and her talents. Imagine singing in front of 12,000 people in 4 shows in one day and these are just the beginning of her career. She has got to feel gobsamcked for sure.

Howdy Pards,

The video of last night's performance in Wembley is
an absolute delight...because the crowd was sooooo loud
in their welcome that Susan did not hear her music cue!

Ahhhhh....but it was then that we were treated to a
little of the wonder and magic of Susan! Without missing
a beat...she did her trademark pointin' to her head and
said something like..."Shall we try that again?"

At that point a teenage girl way up in the audience yelled out to the top of her lungs "We love you Susan!"

Susan heard it and answered, "I love you too!"

Then the music started and, once again, not one but two
standing ovations!

In this wonderful moment the folks at Wembley Area were treated to some extra magic...Susan's wonderful voice...her sense of humor...and the stage presence of
a true and shining star! What a delight!

Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

Wild Ol' Dan.

Her faith has gotten her through many a things and she knows she needs that and her parents support give her strength too. Just think how susan feels when she is on stage now and realizing her mum was so very right, this was susans avenue to bring people joy and to see god love and how he works and grows a talent and to keep perservering. She has really made me look at my goals and what I want to do with the rest of mine.

2. Go to Adobe.com, download Flash Player 10 for whatever PC operating system you're using (Windows or MAC).

2-A. If you're running Windows Vista 64-bit you'll need to open the "32-bit" version of Windows Internet Explorer and download Flash Player, Adobe hasn't released the 64-bit version yet.

You "should" be able to play the video, if not contact a "PC teckie" friend unless you're adept at wading through the Internet to find out why your PC isn't playing video (I've been playing with - building, selling, servicing - PCs off & on since 1992 and STILL am ignorant about lotta things running them so DON'T feel embarrassed).

has-beens. I rather see in her New York, it has to be about more than money, I may have been the one who who made the comment about drunks...and if so I apologize..
that was uncalled for....money is power, but it is corrupting... She has power in her love for her family , her devotion to her talent.and her strength of spirit...I would hate to see her playing the "how much is enough ?" game.

Remember she wore the curtin and the curtin rod at the same time. They save the outfit to be shown to any member of the show until the show for the surprized effect. It was the funniest. He would be great for susan. She could also do some funny numbers, and they could conspire together about it. So he really is a great choice.

@ aliz.

Hi aliz, yes, you might notice there’s a Marian shrine in the corner of Susan’s living room. As with most Catholic families of Irish derivation and of that vintage, it’s probable that her mother said the rosary frequently and that the family were involved in that prayer life too. Anyways, Susan has her feet firmly on the ground as a result of her mother’s love and belief in her and to bloom as she is doing now is a thing of beauty and as you say an inspiration to women of all ages but particularly to those in middle life – not to give up on their dreams either. It’s some kind of sound therapy that she’s working as well, I think, after reading what people say here. The quality of her voice (aside from the lyrics and melody) seems to be working its magic on people, physically and spiritually.

Must turn in. It's 1.15 am here. Goodnight to you, ponylady (nice to chat with you), danny, and everyone else :)

In the picture from the afternoon there appears to be a man in wheelchair in the front. Perhaps that is a relative. The boy with the funky hair appears to be behind him. All this speculation!

@bibi, sorry if I got something wrong. I read father Holuka's article from a referral on this site, and thought that his advice to Susan seemed a bit self-serving, not in her interest at all. Then a bit later, somebody added that he was not her priest anymore. Maybe I got the last thing wrong, but I still think, it was very bad advice and not something he should discuss in public. It just seemed he wants a piece of Susan, too.

I agree that Las Vegas is far from a perfect fit for Susan. But how many people here will be able to make it to New York? I know I couldn't...

Sidenote: Bob Mackie also did Judy Garland's outfits for her TV show in 63-64. Busy guy!
Posted by aliz on June 22, 2009
aroseblush I think she would use mackie to convey her humor too. It would be simply wonderful to see her explore that side on her shows too. Carol burnettte did it so wonderfully

I remember during the BGT competition when Susan was stressing a comment by the press that she was upset over her niece who just had a baby and that the niece was not feeling well - she was having faint spells. It may have been the neice with her new baby sitting in the front row that Susan was blowing kisses to? Just a thought
Posted by squeaky_bird on June 22, 2009
Regarding photo: I just zoomed in on the photo, cropped in photoshop and made some adjustments. The image is of a female, short blonde hair, thin arms and clapping with her hands hiding part of her face. Could very well be Elaine Paige. I watched the videos again, and definitely SB is extremely focused on one particular person. I don't know how to post photos. On the other hand, even with the adjustments, it's not that clear. Plus, the hands are partially blocking the face. In the end, my guess is the girl in black is EP. No solid evidence though. Maybe something will be written up online or better photos found later.

If Mackie wanted to convey humor for Susan, he could create a special carrying case for Pebbles, her cat. Now, that would be unique! :)

@ PoulsanDK.

The problem lay in that article being published on BeliefNet as coming from her current parish priest Father Holuka, when the words were actually those of another priest, Fr Clark (as far as we can tell). That led to confusion here and a few people tried to correct that mistake. Most of us are in agreement in finding parts of that article offensive. I’m still not sure though as to whether you’re talking about that article or another one by someone called Father Tim. At anyrate, again, it would be best if they leave it up to Susan to seek advice, if and when she wants it and from whom she wants it and not to be passing it out in public, as they’ve done. It seems like the ‘god’ men can’t help themselves though – they, along with the rabbi and the pastor from Saddleback and whoever else is commentating. All part of the pot pourri of Susenalia, I guess:)

Must go. Goodnight.

The video on Tommy's site is great. Visual not too good but the sound is really good. These were young people yelling out "I love you Susan" and to hear her interaction with the audience was so sweet. I am amazed at all the cell phone lights. They must not be enforcing the no cell phone recording.........for which I am very grateful!

Nope..just checked. Her niece Jackie has black hair. My mistake.
Posted by LucyB on June 22, 2009
Just wondering out loud---wasn't Elaine Page's folks in the audience a few performances back "checking out Susan's performance" and got back to Elaine that "Susan was the real deal"? There is talk about a duet between the two on Susan's new record. Might the two have met over this past weekend rest spell? I betcha in the crowd that came to see BGT 2009 Tour, couldn't someone like Elaine Paige sneak into the front row without anyone really being aware, since no one would be looking for her? Just the way Susan was singing Memory, but NOT IDAD, indicates that she was DEDICATING that song to that very special particular person. OHHHHHH, WHO???
Posted by Fassbrig on June 22, 2009

I've been watching Teeisel's videos again, and I decided if Susan is not going to take up with our Tommy, I want her to run off with the Saxophone player. I love that bit of video Teeisel! Hitting the pause button repeatedly I see how gracefully she makes her entrance and reaches out to join him. If I knew how to capture scenes, I would get that one where he bends his head to say something and looks at her fondly.

I thought harvey corman was going to wet his pants from so much laughter. It was so so funny.
Posted by Wild Ol' Dan on June 22, 2009
Howdy Pards,

Been thinkin' about all those cell phone lights in the
arena when Susan performs. Sure are a lotta folks who want to capture those magic moments and save them for all
time aren't there?

And for those of us scattered around the four corners of the world...well, we are indeed thankful for those individuals who share those videos on YouTube.

I hope all of you who haven't seen Susan's performance last night will click on TommyUSA's link above...and I also hope that somebody in our outfit will rustle up that
video and put it right here on our fans site too.

These are, indeed, wonderful moments in time to be cherished...to be watched over and over and over again.

There is something just incredibly magical in watching
our Susan take the stage...the thrill in those theaters and arenas appears to be truly electrifying. And, although we have seen her tour performance over and over
again...watch the crowd's reaction when, after singing
Memory she steps back during the standing ovation and then
steps forward toward the mike once again to begin what has
become her signature song. The first notes and the crowd
goes wild! Oh, the joy of that moment! How deeply this
lady has touched all of our hearts...

Yep, they are only moments in time...but they hold as
much magic as Christmas mornin' long, long ago when we were very young. Remember?

As I recall, both those events had a shining star associated with them...and both those events involved a gift from Heaven...

Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

Wild Ol' Dan

Poconorose, wow you blew me away with your response to Susan and Vegas. You made some very good points that she has to make the most out of her career in a short period of time. Hey Donny & Marie have also got a first act out there. There are some new Casino Hotels that are absolutely out of this world. And, any time Susan could perform and be in one spot every day...it would definitely be to her advantage. She, herself, when she gets the offers piling in, will have to decide which direction to take it. She is going to have to build her career in a shorter period of time than most of the other stars. I just got back from Vegas myself, and Susan Boyle maybe could turn their economy around. She certainly draws the crowds. Very good post, I haven't seen you around. Have fun aboard our ship!
Posted by tweek on June 22, 2009
aliz, you are making me very emotional today, loved your post "with regards to susan. Her faith has gotten her through many a things and she knows she needs that and her parents support give her strength too. Just think how susan feels when she is on stage now and realizing her mum was so very right, this was susans avenue to bring people joy and to see god love and how he works and grows a talent and to keep perservering. She has really made me look at my goals and what I want to do with the rest of mine." quote by aliz
Posted by aliz on June 22, 2009
You know elaine mentioned that susan has been invited to do an interview for elaine's radio show. Susans love you to the fan will surely get in there, and elain most certainly would comment about the crowds love for susan. She had this invite prior to the larry king interview and larry wagered that susan would definatly go one elaine's show. So maybe she has spent some of the weekend with elaine and then elaine wanted to see the show for herself. and got snuck in by simon and will report at a later date. Seems very very plausable to me.

I agree with Fran M - Wild Ol' Dan you have quite a way with words. If a blog is too long, I tend to skip. But, I soak in every word if you wrote it. I come from a long line of cowfolk, so I guess I feel right at home with you. :-)

Well, darn, I've read enough of the posts to determine that we STILL don't know the identity of the person Susan sang to and threw kisses to! But sounds like some are pretty sure it was Elaine Paige....which makes sense. I would think that if a duet with Elaine is coming on Susan's first CD.....they would want to get to know each other -- and I can imagine they would develop a closeness -- probably a "mutual admiration society!"

Just to reiterate on my enquiry yesterday, has anyone heard if Susan is going to the Whitehouse to sing for the President at the Independence Day celebrations?
Posted by IvoryMist on June 22, 2009
It sure did not hurt Celine Dion to be in Vegas, but I would just want Susan to go there to see the flashing lights and some of the great hotels....and maybe make a guest appearance or two....that's it!

Everyone has to see Vegas at least once ...I certainly enjoyed it...even if I did lose my shirt there...lol!

OK, this is a different Wembley. It's sideways, but it shows very clearly all that happened at the beginning. Pretty good sound, as it was taken up closer to the front. It's worth turning your puter sideways. Lots more audience interaction--she waves at someone in the intermezzo.

Last night I thought it was Piersy baby because of all the wooos at the first kiss. But someone here saw a blond head with a child with them.

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 22, 2009


This reminds me of Susan's story and why she wasn't discovered years ago. This true story is worth the read.

WashingtonDCMetro Station on a cold January morning in 2007: He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.
After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule.
4 mins later: The violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw the money in the till and, without stopping, continued to walk.
6 minutes after that: Ayoung man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.
10 minutes later: A3 year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly, as the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced them to move on.
45 minutes later: Themusician played.Only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while.About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace.
He collected $32.
1 hour later:He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Bostonwhere the seats averaged $100.
This is a true story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people's priorities. The questions raised: in a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

That makes 4 of us who think it was Elaine Paige recieving Susan's kiss. I do feel they probably met and signed that contract this weekend, and Elaine was given a pass for Susan's Show. How thrilling for Susan, if this is the case.
Posted by PWattis on June 22, 2009
Susan, I just saw the video of your evening performance at Wembley. Of course, you gave another fabulous performance! It was so comforting to hear your speaking voice again! You are still you, wonderful you! I hope you are enjoying this rest day. There should be no fuss about it in the news since it is a day off for everyone on the tour. Ten days done, 13 more to go. When the tour is done I’m sure you will feel relief. You may also, however, experience some anxiety and withdrawal during the sudden transition from giving many performances in front of large audiences in a very short period of time to relative quiet for a period of time. I know that I am projecting what I think I might feel if I were in your shoes and I could be completely wrong. I care about so much about you though and very much want you to feel peace and happiness. So if you do experience a bit of a let down when the tour is over please remember that there are many of us out here who anxiously, yet patiently, await the next stage of your career. I see you now have a facebook page with almost 2 million fans. We will always be here. You just need to concentrate on your singing and enjoying your new life.

@patriciasart - What a great story about Joshua Bell. How it resonates in me regarding Susan's life up until now and how unfair to criticize her townspeople for not discovering her. Would I have with my limited music knowledge? Sure, I would have thought it was "purty" like the kids at the violin music. But I doubt I would have been able to "drag my kids away" from hearing her, or myself either. Just so thankful she bravely took what may have been her only and last opportunity to be heard. And, Oh MY, is she being heard!

Dyebat's post (THANX) of Wembley evening "Memory" is excellent, except its sideways and whoever was in the afternoon performance ain't there now---just one kiss off to Susan's left!! But you can watch her stop the music and get started again. Oh Tommy, where art thou to turn this video so we can watch it without breaking our necks.

Elaine is her idol, and I bet it made her night to see her there in the crowds. I mean Elaine Paige could call up Simon and say get me backstage, but no, she went and watched her sing. If it is true, it makes me love Elaine even more. I have never heard of her until Susan's audition. And I've seen almost every single you tube video of hers and I've actually went to the local library to borrow her CDS so I could listen to each and one of them before I made my mind up to purchase them.

cassieh, spelling errors are most often make by the most intelligent people. I ought to know, I am a teacher, math and history to be exact. My best students have minds so quick, they often do not check their spelling, it is their ideas that drive them. I love the people on this site, they are warm and caring for the most part. As far as speculating about Susan and Piers, yeah, I hope Susan doesn't read any of that. Still, it is done in the name of good natured fun. Do I wonder? Not too much, I just want the lady happy. In fact, I want everyone happy, which I'm not sure you do. I really feel sorry for you and your jaded outlook on things. The world must be a sad place for you.

@cassieh..I think you are projecting just a tad...this site is a place for those who love Susan to play, to enjoy, to share and yes to speculate. It is not an essay contest nor should we be concerned about the typing skills of the posters. We have a new forum in the works; if you feel compelled to rant your anti-establishment philosophy you might find a place there.

cassieh, I know you will be considered a troll, but there is one point I agree on--Susan Boyle is a paradigm shifter.
Unfortunately, your attack on fans & fansites is a non sequitur. Can you cite the specific "rebels" who got her out of the Priory and how they accomplished it? If you have documentation, we will accept it, but we don't accept vague generalities as truth.

I am afraid you will have to clarify for me what was the "not nice" post.

I stated that at this point in her career, if she wishes to be stage singer, Susan should not perform in a casino. I explained this further in my second post, as well as agreeing that if Susan has change that plan, LV is the place to go. I also stated that I don't care where the casino is; a stage singer is a different cattle of fish!

Now unlike other people, I did not write a thing about drunken people or whatever, or other slurs on the count of LV, on the contrary, so am not sure what is the problem.

Posted by PhyllisIA on June 22, 2009
Thanks Aliz, I did write a little blip when I was helping read online papers. The students thought it so great to have a real life 'old nurse' teaching them. :)

I, too, think it's Elaine Page getting the kisses. Wow, what a thrill for Susan to have her role model there. And she was so poised. Bless that gal!
Posted by sassyone on June 22, 2009
found it, certainly looks like it could be Elaine Paige.
Posted by terijay on June 22, 2009
Her voice speaking is more clear on the sideways video- she is so composed when asking to start over- lovely. And the touch of "I love you too" was enchanting.
Her voice seemed to be straining at the beginning on Memory on the night show. Just an observation- compared to the matinee...Hope they don't make her do the twofers for the rest of the tour.
Posted by eagleflight on June 22, 2009
I agree with patriciasart. Susan is a good role model for all. Not only her high morals, but the respect she shows for mother and father in taking care of them. By the way she is good for the economy! I don't have to turn on my air conditioner, all I do is play Susan on mp3 and cold chills come every time!
Posted by sassyone on June 22, 2009
patriciasart exactly. My two daughters ages 4 and 11 love Susan to death. Every single day they will wait with me to see her next big performance. Both my girls said that they want to see her sing live if she ever does a North American tour. I would pay big bucks for front row tickets just so my girls would be happy. They truly love her.

Posted by Lovin' Every Minute! on June 22, 2009
CassieH - I'm intrigued. How exactly is Susan poised to shatter "the status quo"? And she is dangerous to whom? Certainly not Britain's Got Talent - she's their biggest creation!

How exactly did Susan achieve 'Rebel' or 'Prophet' status?

One statement has me puzzled: "They obviously didn't succeed doing this to Susan at the Priory because other rebels worked to get her out of there." Didn't succeed in doing WHAT to her? And WHAT other rebels worked to get her out? How exactly did they achieve her release?

I await enlightenment on these points, as it might prove life-changing to me and, I'm sure, others on this site.

Oh, & you might want to check the spelling of "fantasize" and "thank you" before you insult the intelligence of everyone who has ever made a typographical error.

Not necessarily. Look at Bette Midler. She started singing in bars and gay clubs in the basements of NYC. After she was discovered, and moved to California, she began a great movie career, and made at least a half dozen fabulous films. Ah, the Divine Miss M. From there, she went to Vegas. Her show in Vegas was sold out every night. A multi-talented singer, and movie star. I posted a video on this site of Bette singing live in Las Vegas. If you wish to see one of the most electrifying performances of this video from the Rose, "Stay With Me" It's awesome!
Posted by terijay on June 22, 2009
@lucyB- yes, wonderful stage presence in front of 12,500 people!! After seeing that clip, I now firmly believe Susan should do future shows like at Carnegie Hall and places like that. She OWNS the stage, as well as the audience.
She can work on her stamina in the next few months, as well as work on singing say, four songs in a row to gain the strength also.
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 22, 2009
I don't think the buck will stop at Elaine Page sitting in a Susan Boyle audiance. Wait until she comes to the states, all the celebrities will probably want to see her perform in Vegas. What's that saying, "Don't do anything great if you can't handle the congratulations". She's attracting audiances of all age groups.

Susan evokes fantasizing. We are internalizing her. We who love her are each building a Susan schema in our brains, which will grow and evolve over the years. The friends we have made on this site are part of it, too.

I think the people who share their Susan fantasies here are brave. They are the rebels. They don't care if more uptight people laugh at them. Do you think, cassieh, that they really believe what they are saying? They are being playful, and sharing. And sometimes they make spelling errors. Big deal.

I challenge you to come up with a more intelligent group of posters anywhere.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 22, 2009
@cassieh. I think you miss the point of this fan site. Its a place for everyone to contribute and share information about Susan Boyle. We are making no demands on her or riding her back. Your writing sound a bit out of proportion,its a fan site for crying out loud,what are we supposed to do here?! Of course we express our feeling about Susan. We look at pictures of her and watch her interviews and performances because we like her and want to know her more. We know she can't be all things to all people ,and we may never get to meet her ,but we enjoy knowing her from afar.So why do you want to rain on our parade? Its you who have a problem. You want to make people unhappy and belittle people. And people can spell just fine. Most of the time ,you can tell when words are not spelled right,its a typo .
Much of the conversation here is just banter ie; to speak to or address in a witty and teasing manner. Maybe its you who are taking it all too serious. We are just having fun and making friends. I know people like you, party poopers and sour puss's.

There are so many romantics on this site!!! That makes this site fun to visit! However, I do hope none of them are serious! SUSAN, I PRAY THAT YOU WILL MEET SOMEONE WHO ADORES YOU AND LOVES YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE! I pray the Lord will protect you from men who only want to take advantage of you (and He sure knows who they are!). You are a special lady and you have been chosen by your Creator for a special assignment for such a time as this. Someone says she's a 'paradigm shifter'. I believe that's right - I said something similar before. And I also believe we, Susan's fans, are meant to support Susan and partner with her in this. Are we not glad that God will use anyone to change the world - big, small, male, female, grown-up, child, good-spellers and bad-spellers, etc. etc. We are all loved unconditionally the way we are (and we can all change for the better!) so there is no reason to be rude at anyone, is there?

3. There were so MANY blown kisses in the persons direction
4. I am a die hard romantic

Maria Jean--I find it wonderful that people in non-English speaking countries who don't know the lyrics to the songs Susan sings are still captivated by her voice and are big fans! such a tribute to her. some of the youtube videos have closed captions, I don't know in which languages. and I don't know how closely the translations would match the meanings of the originals in English.

in your case, you can read the English lyrics so understand the meanings.

do you have the lyrics to IDAD? Susan didn't sing the first verse which I think was very fortunate as she started so magnificently with "I dreamed a dream in time gone by.................."

@squeaky bird - good observation about the Elaine Paige show. I think I will write in to the show and just ask "Have you seen Susan Boyle perform live on Tour? Any thoughts Elaine?" and see if I get a response.

I am feeling with all of the kisses she blew that way...they were meant for a family member and not her idol. But, that is just how I prefer to see since there is no way we will know until she comments on the issue herself.

Hopefully, after the BGT tour, she will be able to do some live interviews in order to promote her upcoming album. Then we can get it straight from Susan's mouth.

Just watched the evening perfomance at Wembley... the headline should read, "SUSAN TAKES CONTROL!" - She handled that missed opening like the pro she already is, so cool, did a little shimmy, used her hands to calm the audience down, and said, "Can we start over?" When a girl yelled out, "I love you Susan," she responded - "I love you too!" I'm sure Susan has been told (along with all the groups), to just do your act, but on this night she handled things her way. LOVED IT! Thanks Tommy for that wonderful video upload.
Posted by Joan M - for Susan on June 22, 2009
God Bless Susan on her day off. God protect Susan now and always.

My two cents of who Susan is blowing kisses to at matinee show at Wembley. IF it is a woman and baby, THEN I think it may be her favorite neice who had a baby about 2 months ago. Susan was upset at one point when her niece fell down stairs and went to hospital. Niece was fine, but it upset Susan. So, maybe it is her favored neice and the new baby.

I also love the new video's of Wembley and the way Susan flawlessly interpretted both songs.

My dial-up "wormhole" to Magnify.net opened up JUST enought to slip this post in:

@katladyd; re. "Like A Prayer," if Susan ever did a video ain't gonna be any burning crosses in background and she CERTAINLY ain't gonna be "cavorting" if ya know what I mean!

This tune I'd like to hear Susan sing as well:

"Rhiannon" - Fleetwood Mac

Rhiannon rings like a bell throu the night
And wouldnt you love to love her

Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover

All your life youve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind

Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness

She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless

All your life youve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind

Would you stay if she promised you heaven

Will you ever win

Will you ever win

Rhiannon

Rhiannon

Rhiannon

Rhiannon

She rings like a bell throu the night
And wouldnt you love to love her

She rules her life like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover

Would you stay if she promised you heaven

Will you ever win

Will you ever win

Rhiannon

Rhiannon

Oooooh

Awesome, you'd have seen the troll post, it was quite lengthy - said we were all idiots and our fansite should be closed down, along with other garbage. Somebody killed it before I could get out my double-barrel.

Just watched Susan's matinee performance again, and noticed she threw TWO kisses consecutively, then the other two were spaced out but in the same direction. I couldn't see her face that well, but did look like she was really happy to see them. And notice the crowd went oooooh once. Surely if it was someone famous the audience would have recognized them. Just curious is all, and hoping our darling girl has a beau. Of course if the kiss WAS for AmazinglyCritical the mystery is solved.

Ammo, so glad you got your doll. Be sure and give her big kisses and tell her we love her.

Away for a bit, but catching up. I just looked at the pics posted by Judy B. I see the blonde woman sitting, clapping partly obscuring her face. But, if you look to the right, perhaps three people away, I see a young, dark haired woman sitting..looks like with a baby in her lap??
Also..I loved the pic facing the audience..and am even more amazed at Susan's stage presence as she looks out into such a crowd! Wow..she's made of "tuff stuff." I'd be "soiling my linen!!!"

Anno, i know your excited to have received susan doll. The capri pants for Susan can be found at a doll house store or a craft store that sell doll house things, like AC MOORE, HOBBY LOBBY. Michaels really doesn't have doll house things. You can actually sew the doll house pants down to make them into caperi pants.

Just had to share this comment from a 17 year old that attended the afternoon performance at Wembley yesterday. It is special that she got such a reaction from this particular crowd.

From: djsims2 Re:Susan Boyle
I would say that most of the crowd were younger than 18. This is most likely because i went to a matinee.
At the start of the entire show the host, stephen mulhern, read out who would be performing. When they read out susan boyle ther was a big cheer but not very big. However after she sang it was definatally the loudest cheer of the evening. EVERYONE in the arena was on their feet. It was a really fantastic experience.

Just watched the "rotated" version of Memory -- Susan's antics and gyrations when she missed the opening are so adorable....just to think of being in front of that large an audience makes me have to go to the bathroom! She is quite a LADY, our Susan Boyle.......so poised, elegant, so "present" with her audience! YOU GO, GIRL!

there is a young man beside the lady and child. he appears to be doing something with probably a camera .
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 22, 2009
About the kiss; if Susan was blowing kisses to the woman with the little girl, it might have been her nephew's wife. I read (I thought in the Scotsman but can't find it now) that right at the time the tour started, the wife of one of her nephews passed out and fell down some stairs. She was taken to the hospital and it just turned out to be an iron deficiency. The paper said she's fine, she didn't hurt herself; it wouldn't surprise me if it were this nephew's wife in the front row. I wish I could remember the last name; it wasn't Boyle.

Maybe some of our Scottish members might remember that article from reading it in the paper? I googled it today but came up empty.
Posted by dyebat on June 22, 2009
CzechLady, this seems to be a reaction at many, if not all, her performances. The kids go in looking for Diversity or Shaun Smith, and come out raving about Susan! A new generation is being educated!
Posted by GritsT on June 22, 2009
The presence of the baby makes sense.......perhaps that's why her voice kindof softened after she first spotted them. And her gestures during the lines "A new day has begun" would make sense -- singing that to a newborn, huh?

Internet "Gods" are with me, opened up the "wormhole" again for me to make this post:

@judyann; Enlarged the 2nd photo on:

http://disembedded.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/susan-boyle-makes-a-triumphant-stage-return-in-londons-wembley-stadium/

My Observations:

- Woman clapping front row left at edge of lit area has what looks like a girl sitting to the right (her left); heavy set man to right sitting, large woman standing right of him - could they be Susan family members as they're all sitting?! The "guy" on far right (looking down at floor) kind'a look like Simon Cowell but think he's also a family member.

- Second row of folks standing looks like a woman holding hands together like in prayerful adulation, man with "red tie" to her right & behind looks like "man of color."

Facinating photo, something to challenge photo-recon people!

BethintheUSA, I think you may be on to something there. There are so many men around her that it could be anybody. Now that she's out in the real world, she's bound to become friends with many of the show people and other performers. Hey, maybe it's the gentleman from 2Grand. lol Just because he's older doesn't mean he doesn't still get the yearning. lol I don't care who it is and will not offer anymore guesses. Susan is a big girl and is entitled to love anyone she wants (even those who might take advantage of her). Just my opinion.
Posted by LucyB on June 22, 2009
OHRATS!!!! on the audience picture...right singer, wrong audience!!!!---welllll, then we are back to square one. Just noticed that "Yin-yang" went troll hunting with no results but does advertise as being a "detective" cause we need some expertise here to solve this problem!!!! I still maintain, that it MUST BE someone with a special connection to the song "Memory" cause there was no real acknowledgement of them when she sang IDAD. If it were family, seems that Susan would have sent kisses their way during IDAD as well, but she DID NOT!! We WILL solve this puzzle, its just a matter of WHEN!!
Posted by sassyone on June 22, 2009
Scrooge sure why not, it's 2009. :) I don't mean it that way, and yes she does love Elaine Paige, she loves her voice, thinks the world of her.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 22, 2009
BethInTheUSA, her name is Jacqueline Johnstone and she is Susan' niece. I speculated in an earlier post on this blog (see above) that it might have been Jackie and her new son, but the picture shows a blonde and Jackie is or was dark haired. Of course, women do change their hair colour on a regular basis, so it could still be her. Susan was genuinely concerned about Jackie around the time of her entry to the Priory - indeed, it may have contributed to her agitation at that particular time when she had to cope with so much mania going on around her.

Apparently, having so many good Susatectives here have simply made the bad naughty troll and its insulting post go bye-bye. (Yay! Just proves there's power in numbers!)

Now--to have a nice little look-see around some of these Wembley Arena evening concert videos posted and figure out if I'm able to see or hear anything others here are reporting...

The only one of said videos I've viewed so far was of rather poor quality so I couldn't see much of anything, and the sound was too far off for me to understand what Susan was actually saying. STILL, it amazes me that folks can even get what they do with phone-cameras! I'm so low-tech, I don't have one--still using an old Tracfone.

I'm interested to know where the photo taken behind her at Wembley (on wordpress) has come from? I didn't see any photographers behind her on the video? Also, I notice they are very low-res for digital photos, and look more like video scans to me. Perhaps the concert was recorded for a DVD release, which might explain the extra effort she was putting in!
Posted by squeaky_bird on June 22, 2009
Now I'm starting to think that it IS the neice, nephew and the baby. I just compared some of the photos. Maybe we will never know. Just seems odd that they would come all the way from Scotland plus bring a baby to a loud show. I don't know. I give up.

Posted by Lonnirose on June 22, 2009
LucyB, no we're not desperate. We're just having a little fun and are all interested in Susan, be it her love life or whatever. Yin-Yang, how about some more detective work?

The reason I don't think it's family is because the family members were at Edinburgh, on Susan's right according to Teesiel, and she did acknowledge them and throw them a kiss. But this seemed like more than that, somebody she was really delighted to see. Could be a little child I guess, or could be (drum roll) . . . . . a (whisper) man. I think that would be lovely for Susan to have a beau, as long as he's worthy. I think she'll choose well - have a feeling she would not put up with anyone who wasn't worthy. Nae crap!

Just watched the rotated version. WOW. How glorious to hear her speak again! I missed her. To me, she excells when she can interact with the audience. That, along with her incredible voice, is what makes Susan so special. She has fantastic comedic timing. In her own show, with oportunities to chat with her fans between songs would showcase her unique talents. That was just awesome. I am so proud of her.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 22, 2009
Mrlscan, I wish they'd announce it if they have Susan's performances recorded - they could make a fortune selling her DVD's. I'm surprised they didn't think of that.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 22, 2009
@ML - I agree, she should be allowed to interact with the audience rather than just sing. They love it! Even when she makes a little slip she can quickly get them eating out of her hands! It's amazing that in just 2 months we've gone from the audience laughing AT her to laughing WITH her!

@DJG-Scotland . I've lost the link. It was a site with a lot of professionally photographed pictures of Susan. But all the pics he took are on this site. If you go to picture and look through it. The person with the wordpress account just cropped the picture to remove Susan. It was a widescreen picture. The link was on one of the previous blogs but I don't think we have access to it now and I can't remember the guys name. Maybe someone else will remember.

I don't think Susan knows anything different than to just be herself......even the early videos are clear that there were no pretenses......she simply loved to sing but was a bit shy about doing it. She certainly has her wits about her on stage and she's quick-witted......I'll bet she's a stitch when you get to know her.....which I would absolutely love to do (as would perhaps a few thousand of us here, huh?)!

notice the person who took the video is not close to the stage and I assume her daughter was sitting with her so she did have a loud voice!

This clip from ITN on Susan's Wembley appearance I think was mentioned here already, but it's on YouTube now and I've submitted it to this site. Here's the link:

Hi,everyone! How happy we all are now Susan is "back" on track! Thanks Tommy, I've been on your site to watch the Wembley night show. That was incredible! Susan was brilliant in every way! Even a few words from her in her wonderful speaking voice is a treat! Did you notice even S.Mullhern has improved...he's changed his introducing cues... It used to be "the most Googled woman on earth", now it is "the one and only SUSAN BOYLE!" And those kids screaming "She's amazing!" "We love you!" We wouldn't have bet on such a triumph only a few days ago... Which shows we haven't yet learnt our Susan lesson: we must never "give in" and carry on the dream! This leads me to the "priests' thread". Often those would should lead are the weakest believers...

Marie Ursula and WamMcKinley, if you're still there, what a laugh I had over that "porcupine head" blocking the view! Some people here really have a devastating sense of humour!

Retired in Flat Broke Kalifornia, thanks for your kind post. Needless to say American people are also dearly remembered here in reference to that part of History. But am I right in thinking you made it sound as if there may be something wrong about being French! lol... I reckon being one of the rare French posters on a site virtually swarming with American citizens requires true grit!:D

re Susan blowing kisses, she got a line in the song wrong during that. maybe she was surprised to see whoever it was?

DJG-Scotland--I hope when she does whatever she does next she will be able to talk to the audience. they'll laugh with her if she does a wiggle and she likes to joke. (she said when people stood up during the audition she thought maybe there was a fiver under their seats, or she'd done something wrong. or maybe they liked her.)and if she makes little mistakes when singing no one will care. I'm assuming the cd will be "perfect" with editing and re-dos. that's okay, too, I look forward to it. and I and sure hope we can see many performances on tv.

Re priests: May I clarify for everyone, the 'Susan go home' article was published by a Father Tim, who apparently does not know either Susan or her priests. Her own parish priest is Fr. Haluka, who has been wonderful, as has the priest Fr. Clark with whom she has gone on annual pilgrammages to the Marian shrine in Knock, Ireland, where she has also sung. They seem genuinely fond of Susan and have known her well for years, as she has long sung in her church choir; and they have given her enthusiastic, realistic and wise support. They knew there could be problems with such an unworldly person going into such a harsh medium as show business. Fr. Hakula suggested to Susan that she go for it and enjoy it as much as possible, and if it lasts it lasts and if it doesn't it doesn't, but in either case she would have achieved far more than most people. This was in the beginning when she became an overnight internet sensation. Fr. Tim appears to have merely read or heard what the rags are publishing and became aware that Susan was suffering, and reacted without really investigating. I would not place too much importance on it as long as it gently disappears.

I came on the blog the other day and found this same post from someone else, went right straight to Tommy's website (by the way it is just awesome) and listened to this video. This is one of those sparkling forever moments in Susan's history in the way she responds to the little girl from stage "I Love You, Too!"
