She just keeps getting better and better. She is not just a great singer any longer, she is an entertainer! Bravo!

How do you do,evryone? I'm new here from Japan.
I've been enjoying reading your blog which contains full of love for Ms Boyle, but it's very hard for me to follow up all your comments because of my poor English. Although I may seldom be able to come out, it's still my pleasure to be here. Excuse me if I bother you with my misunderstanding.
Anyway I'm so happy to see Susan seems to be completely back to herself on this video. This is fantastic performance! I love it so much.
Then I wonder if anyone has already find another video.

It includs dance performance before Susan, so you have to wait for about2:10.It is very good too.

WHAT A MEGA PERFORMANCE!!!! Susan just gets better and better ..... how is that possible? She has now found her feet on that stage, she looks very comfortable and relaxed sending out her kisses and waving to the crowd. Her confidence is all there to be seen and seems to gain strength day by day.

Posted by Kalua on June 25, 2009
I think this is the best performance up to now. Susan looks so at ease, relaxed, smiling, one can see that she is really enjoying the show. I love it!!!!

P.S. TommyUsa thanks for the upload and Paul for the new blog!!

Thanks again, Tommy. It is sooooooooooo good to have you back and on form. You and Susan both. Do you think that, at last, Susan has realised her true worth and that she has truly fulfiled her dream? Her performance last night was so relaxed that it reminded me of her audition in Glasgow, just a short few months ago. What a journey she has gone on since then!
Cheerio for now.
Posted by Anja edens on June 25, 2009
Tommy thank you so much. wow you can see how relaxed she is how she now conect,s with the audiance, she is FANTASTIC. love you Susan The Netherlands

Goeiemorgen/goodmorning all susafans ! I am in awe, my day started splendidly with Susan singing in Birmingham, my god, what a tremendous power she has, I am deeply in love with her voice: this lady belongs ON STAGE !!!!!!! Congratulations dear Susan !!!

To all who reacted to my message on last nights blog concerning talking my own language vs english: and especially to RubyRose: I was not offended at ALL ! just confused because I want to do things right you know, and I am just new here :-) but you know what ?? This morning, waking up, getting 'my susafix' (love this one!!!!), reading all the comments made, I was overwhelmed with the friendlyness and warmth all you nice fans have been showing me in reaction to my message, really I FEEL AT HOME, thank you so much, it means a lot to me !!!!

Love this on Danny Ramone!!

So good to see TommyUSA back and kicking. And so great to see this fabulous video of Susan Boyle in Birmingham. Wow, she is looking so relaxed and happy to be on stage. Her voice is great in this one -- she nailed both songs.

It is going to be tough when this tour is over, and we don't get new videos every couple of days. On the other hand, it will be good to start hearing the rest of her repertoire, even if it means waiting a while.

Thanks to all involved in getting these videos up on this site; it is deeply appreciated.

Anja and Natalie: my father's first hit song- (#1 in USA before there was even a hit parade! was "Little Dutch Mill"- almost 80 years ago! He found this out after arriving in New York with $6 in his pocket! lol Dad born in Canada to Hungarian-immigrant parents to US. His grandmother's maiden name was "Hollander" :o)
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
Let's hope that anywhere she goes she will be able to take Pebbles with her; she shouldn't come to the US for more than a few days if she can't. I don't think we have the quarantine issues that they have in Britain. I couldn't bear to be away from my little doggies for any length of time; I'd always worried they weren't being taken care of properly in addition to my missing them.

Also, does anyone know where Susan will be performing next?

Another brilliant performance - it's great to see this on video!
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 25, 2009
Vicki - - thanks for the information! You must be a "late owl" too?!

Thanks, too, to stevieboy49 for the information regarding Handbrake. Will check it out. I've never tried to copy any videos from the internet - - - until I heard Susan! Now, would like to listen to her whenever I want. I need to know how to do this from "scratch." If you have time, could you help me with this? Many thanks!
Posted by natalie on June 25, 2009
Hi vicki, never heard of that one, ofcourse that was way before I was born ... :-) But I like this kind of story very much because it shows that we all are one really. I wish you a very nice Susa-day! Veel plezier vandaag!

Hi, Vicky- not by choice-chronic insomnia... :0( (sigh) lol
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
I see there are a few west coasters up late. VickyOR, I'm in Portland, how about you. As to download, did you know you can download free RealPlayer, then when one youtube video, you get a "Download this video tag" and all you do is click.

Vicki Smith, in going over the blogs sounds like you have entertainer in your blood. Are you old enough to have heard Kate Smith?
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
I meant to say watch a video
Sorry bout that
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
@ Natalie- Dank U- loved the windmill! :o) Way before my time. too! LOL

@My new Japanese friend: You most welcome. He loved it, but sure had some amusing stories when he came home- including the "adventure" of driving there! lol
Posted by husker2 on June 25, 2009
She having some trouble in Birmingham, England?

Good Lord, wait till she get's to the US!

Hopefully there is a good rest in store..

Beatles II, here we come ..
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
pagepage- just hit 70 (but I'm 35 til I look in the mirror and it cracks LOL); I saw her on her weekly tv shows and have commented on her here- some similarity to Susan- and much loved. I wish Susan would sing "May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You"

Most of my family in show business- when Frank Sinatra was starting out he used to climb theough the window into my dad's studio when door was locked to play the piano. Once told my dad "Ralph, I don't understand what women see in me!"- Boy did he change! lolol
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
husker2, I just came on a short bit ago and went back some posts to see what's up and didn't see anything about trouble, is there any. Susan was so wonderful tonight I would hope things were going well.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
How I would love to hear Susan sing "God be with You til We Meet Again"- would wipe me out (sigh)
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
vicki smith, lol, I'm 60, so 70 is looking young to me. I commented yesterday that I really laughed watching the Susan with doll when she sang "I hear music, etc." as that was a Kate Smith song, a duet she sang with Donald O'Conner, do you remember the movie. I only saw her late at night watching old movies on tv.
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 25, 2009
Hi to pagepage - - I'm in Seaside! I've never joined a fansite, either - - but couldn't resist after becoming an ardent Susan Boyle fan. Thanks for the RealPlayer info. Also, I'm 65 and have thought many times that Susan reminds me of Kate Smith. And, as much as I liked Kate Smith, I have to say that I personally like Susan Boyle better. Wouldn't she do a beautiful rendition of "God Bless America!"
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
Oh, loved the Sinatra story, have to tell my Mother, she is a total Sinatra fan. She loves Susan as well, I send her all the video's to watch. At 83 she does well on a computer but this site is a bit much for her.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
pagepage- strangely enough, I saw her only on her show. I did see your comment last night. Susan was really funny when she did that- adorable. Can you imagine her doing that song a duet with Terry Fator- if he had a Susan puppet/dummy?
Posted by natalie on June 25, 2009
Hi vicki smith: insomnia, right? Than you must be over the moon that Susan and this fansite has come to your live? LOL

Posted by VickyOREGON on June 25, 2009
Was just wondering - - with all the Susan Boyle merchandise out there for sale - - does she get anything from it? I can't imagine people making t-shirts, etc., without first getting her permission - - or am I all wet?
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
VickyOREGON, Nice at Seaside, It's going to be hot this weekend, I wish I could be at the coast to cool off.

I agree, Susan is much more melodic, Kate Smith had more of an, I don't know, brash sound.
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 25, 2009
Thanks jpnlvsb for BGT tour info.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
pagepage- Sinatra really cared about peoplel he knew how rough it was for my dad when he no longer was contracted to MGM. Dad intentionally didn't have us associate with movie starts because he didn't like the destructive lifestyle. He did associate with them at the Friar's Club, however. He recorded one of dad's song ((Just the way You Are) to help him out on one of his later albums. I was a home student for most of my high school because of my yet-undiagnosed condition, and had only one friend. Anyway, when Man with the Golden Arm previewed one rainy evening, I walked to the theater to see the goings-on. As he came towards the entrance I yelled to him "Do you remember my dad, RF"? Well, he came to the rope that separated the fans, lifted it up and brought me inside- me in my levis and raincoat! I couldn't believe it- called my dad to tell him that he had gotten me a seat to see the movie. It was so sweet of him! Can you imagine what it was like for a fifteen-year-old to have that happen? Luckily I was wearing that raincoat and so I rolled up my jeans :o)
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
The puppet idea sounds perfect, made me laugh.

I have thought long and hard about my obsession with Susan. All the reasons that have been posted, I've agreed with. But I have come down to the fact that when the Beatles came to be, I absolutely loved them, but I was a very shy child and never could express it and I grew up on a farm in Ohio (there I just said 'hi' to our Japanese friend, lol)so no money for records or concerts or trinkets. And now, here, this 50 odd years later, I'm a total Susan fan, I can totally shout it to the hilltops (Yes, my husband thinks I'm 'over the moon' but in a different way than in Britain) and I feel like a teenager again. I think it's a good time to have a second childhood, eh.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
BTW, if you ever watch the old movies on TNT, and have seen Saratoga, with Clark Gable and Jean Harlow, my mom sings the title song over the credits and appears towards the end singing it. She absolutely hated the way she looked in it, though. Although she was in Vaudeville and Broadway, this is the only movie in which she appeared; in some other movies she did do voice-overs, however.

4:14am CDT ~~ Good morning Susan Villagers, a special welcome to ipnlvsb from Japan and all the new villagers who have joined this week. Our Susan has given us another performance to enjoy and it was truly wonderful. I love her reactions to the audience. Susan truly looks relaxed and didn't appear tired as she did in the previous performance. Remember to rest Susan. I'm getting spoiled in expecting a new performance each day. Maybe you will rest until your Ireland performances. We love you Susan. Peace and love to the Susan Global Village.
Posted by natalie on June 25, 2009
@pagepage, I agree with you totally, being a woman of a certain age myself, I think it is fabulous to have a second childhood and enjoy this! I am totally hooked I confess, I read somewhere on the blog that when you become a member of this community fansite, you will want to live here ... LOL, Amen to that!
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
Natalie- you're a trip with those graphics! LOL Well. it's certainly given me a break from obsessing on politics for awhile lol. But I'm about to do another paper re Christianity- and with my OCD I keep re-writing and re-writing-and re-writing and re-writing-- well, you get the picture haha
Posted by calicoskittens on June 25, 2009
Susan, you look great. I just love you. I enjoyed yesterday going through your performances during Britains Got Talent again.
Posted by soimpressed on June 25, 2009
This performance is beyond wonderful! WEll done and thanks Susan!Love it.
Posted by DANNYG. on June 25, 2009
To all those here for whom English is a second language. Please, please, never apologize. Most Americans are always amazed that anyone can speak another language in any way because most of us cannot. And to think that so many from other countries not only can speak English bit can also speak one or more other languages boggles my mind. That is a great failing here that people are not routinely taught another language as they are growing up.

VickyOregon and Pagepage, good morning. It's 2:25am in San Francisco, and I could not sleep. So, came to this site to again watch Susan's last night performances. Saw you two here and wanted to say hello. Going to head off and try to get some sleep now as I have to be up again at 4:30 a.m. to get ready for the day. I, too, loved Kate Smith, and agree Susan is much more melodic. But, both fit into the category of "belter" as I expressed in an earlier post. At least I think they do.
I realized while watching Susan's performances close up from Arbedeen why I relate her so much to Barbra. Like Barbra, she not only sings the songs, she engages with the lyrics, makes them her own and delivers a performance for us to witness let alone hear. I do think she may have begun to let how much she is loved sink in a bit and that that is why it seems each performance is better than the one before. I could go on and on and on, but would regret doing so later in the day. Must go "hit the pillow" for another few hours. To Susan, you are absolutely astounding and I adore you. Good day all.
Posted by jaffa66 on June 25, 2009
@vicki smith-hi-you still online? Just wondering if that email of mine ever came through? I reposted it.i Haven't been online few days. Hope all is well over there. Cheers!
Posted by debbie r on June 25, 2009
Just getting up during the middle of the night to watch and hear Susan yet again. Go to bed with her voice in my head and wake up to check out the site for anything new. Susan's performance yesterday in Birmingham was so wonderful. She is so much a lady, full of grace and beauty. She looks rested and happy. Ilove these close up videos. Thanks to whoever puts them up. Tommy I think, I'm new to blogging and have only started this because of my love for Susan. She has touched me profoundly and I wish to see her in America some day soon. Susan I love and adore you!
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
vicki smith, That must have been fantastic with Sinatra, pretty sure your head was spinning for days! Sorry to hear about your health, but I empathize, I have MS and it took them 20 years to figure out what was going on and meantime you feel like a hypochondriac. We have good days and bad, eh. Pretty sure the average age on this site is 60 and we've all got ailments and so love Susan even more for giving us some space to just feel her music and her love.

I hope we hear some great stories about meeting Susan from people.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
pagepage- you Canadian? :o) Dunno about a second childhood haven't finished with my first- hehe

If you just said "Hi" to our Japanese friend you said "Yes" in Japanese (hai) :o)

I love Susan, too, but we still have to be careful that we don't neglect the non-computer part of our lives. There is something so special about her, however- so very orecious- innocent- and more, that it can make this difficult, for sure.
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 25, 2009
Good "talking" to you all - - and hello to ZOEY! Yes, it's 2:37 am in Seaside - - and still have to wash my hair before going to bed. Love this site - - and hate to give in to "time." Have a good morning all. Will look forward to talking to you later today. ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz
Posted by pattybakes on June 25, 2009
thank you for posting this love Susan's performances
which seeems to get better and better I am hooked lol
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
pagepage- too late tonight to get into this, but some people have been healed of MS through natural methods. It must be so difficult for you. :-( My condition is neurological and Susan and I suffered similar torment from kids when we were children. At least no one threw rocks at me, however. I think someone should have thrown rocks at a couple of my teachers, though...

@jaffa66- please try again? I've just gotten email lately from a couple of other folks- one from Malaysia and Saoirse.
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
ZOEY, hope you get some sleep, dear. I'm fortuanate I don't have to get up at any particular time. At least until my little demands attention <smile>

debbie r, Don't we all!

To our Japanese friend, Is Susan talked about there? Are there a lot of fans?
Posted by LucyB on June 25, 2009
5:45am, EST---what a way to start the Day!!!!!OHMERCIME, this is by far the very finest performance Susan Boyle has EVER given!!! Her singing has risen even further towards PERFECTION, with her new-found confidence on the stage she just basks in the limelight waving and throwing kisses to all in the audience, whether left or right, the staging and lighting are SPECTACULAR which is really obvious in full-screen mode, the person doing the video was truly in the right place at the right time and got the entire performance in one clip, TOMMY (HOORAY, he's back doing his Susa-thing!) caught it and got it submitted to the site, and Paul has it on the site and ready for us all the ENJOY and savor all day !!!! Again a BIG THANX to all involved.
Posted by jaffa66 on June 25, 2009
@vicki-don't know what is happening. It comes thru just with my initials "jf" on it- maybe it goes to your spam box? I'll send it again now. Please let me know if it comes thru. BTW I have a sleep disorder too.

Oops, that's little dog demands attention. ah typos

Posted by Kalua on June 25, 2009
@DANNYG. Thanks dear, for all of us it is also a trainning experience, I've learned new words, and I'm getting back my fluency in english writing which was sort of forgotten since my university years. Gobsmacked by the Boyle effect LOL
Posted by jaffa66 on June 25, 2009
@vicki-any luck? I don't expect a reply unless you've got the time/ energy sometime- just want to check if it finally came thru :-)
Posted by Kalua on June 25, 2009
@LucyB - Yes, I believe that finally susan has realized that she is a "worthy person", that comming second is not important, that people do love her and her singing. all that has given her a new vision of herself, and thus new confidence, she is really now enjoying the show and we all can see the way she relaxes, smiles, and commmunicates with the audience.

Her voice now is at the top, absolutely divine!!!
Posted by calicoskittens on June 25, 2009
It's about noon here in Germany. I've already seen several Suvideos. I'm pretty happy and on top of the world.

Tommy, I didn't know you left, and I'm glad you're back. I myself took some time off. Had some work to do that was piling up, waiting for me to stop worrying about Susan.

Wild ol' Dan, good morning when you get up. Yours is the first avatar I look for in the blog.

I've got to do some more piled up work, so I won't be back for a little while. But good day to you all. I wish you all a good Susamorning and afternoon.

Love
Posted by calicoskittens on June 25, 2009
Oh, one more thing. Thanks Tommy for the video. It's really nice.
Posted by vicki smith on June 25, 2009
Jaffa- just emailed you; and sometimes phone is a lot easier :o) Gotta get ready for bed now, but will try to come back for a few before I go to bed.
Posted by jpnlvsb on June 25, 2009
Great thanks to everybody welcoming me!
@pagepage:Yes!! probably most of us know about Susan.Because she's introduced on many TV programs in Japan,too. But not as popular as USA yet. I think the number of fans are increasing day by day.

Hi to vicki smith from Aotearoa (New Zealand/Godzone)
Posted by pagepage on June 25, 2009
After reading LucyB's post, I had to watch the video from last night again. I am just grinning from ear to ear watching Susan bloom as she enters her audience comfort zone.

Thanks vicki smith, I do many alternative healings that do indeed help. Hope you get some sleep, too.

Wow, this is the most I've ever talked here at the village and I've really enjoyed it. Good day to all who are into morning and good night to all us nite owls. Lovely to me you all.

Susan, can't help loving you.

I mean Lovely to "meet" you all.

jpnlvsb, Yes, I know her fans will continue to grow.

Okay, now, I'm really going to bed. Well, maybe one more visit to the video. <smile>

Hi folks.... I have just had my susafix for the day - watched several videos, and had a long listen to my Boyle Collection - IDAD; Memory; Killing Me Softly; Cry me A River; The Way We Were; The Heart Goes On. OMG! what a collection already. Imagine what it is going to be like when we get our hands on the real deal - her debut CD.
Good morning to papepage; VickyOREGON and other Susanites. Life is great now - I feel that the worst is truly over for the Press seem to have realised that "oor lassie" IS made of stern stuff and is not going to to deflected from realising her dream. And The Audition Gal that we initially feel in love with is BACK! Coventry; Bournemouth and another trip to the capital to come. Can it get any better than this? - well, it can actually but that might have to wait until the CD and HER concert tour!
Cheerio for now

I agree with everyone- Susan's voice is sublimely beautiful in this performance. i'm so very happy to see her joy and confidence coming back, and I feel sure there's even more to come. Just wonderful to watch her soar. Blessings to Susan.
Posted by DANNYG. on June 25, 2009
Watched the Birmingham video and no way can I describe my reaction and feelings. I like what one person said about watching Susan bloom in the video. That is exactly what we have been doing since the finals. Watching our beloved Susan as bloom, petals opening in the sun.

Posted by DANNYG. on June 25, 2009
A little comment here. I am glad I enjoy music of various kinds though I myself have not the least iota of musical talent. There have been a lot of different kinds in my lifetime, big bands, pop singers, country old and new, folk revival, early rock and roll of the 50's and 60's, some of all which I like and enjoy and some of which I am quite fervent about. I enjoy some opera and have been a devoted fan of Rise Stevens and enjoyed several others, I like and enjoy a lot of operetta music. May be some I have left out. I don't make comparisons between the singers of one genre and the singers of another. It is a false comparison to me. I loved Glen Miller, I loved Jo Stafford and Patti Page, I loved Elvis and Little Richard, I loved Peter, Paul, and Mary, I loved Patsy Cline. They have all given me pleasure and were great at what they did. And there have been others in each category which I didn't care for and some I saw as way less talented.

My beloved Susan I don't compare with any of them. She is a singer of a different magnitude altogether. Would be like trying to compare a campfire with the sun. Can't be done.

That's how I feel.

Danny
Posted by soimpressed on June 25, 2009
@DANNYG You said it very poetically and I feel the same way.
Posted by PWattis on June 25, 2009
No, Susan, you do not have stage fright as some pundits have suggested. Not one little bit. In this performance I loved seeing you play with the audience during Memories and your more introspective interpretation of IDAD. Your voice is in beautiful form. Love you. See you at the next stop.
Posted by DR on June 25, 2009
Well said DANNYG!

HI EVERYONE, especially to those to whom English is not their first language, like me. Welcome to our friend from Japan and our friends from France and Germany. BTW, is there anyone here from Monaco (where my daughter was born). To those who came from or who are from my part of the world, I just want to say this in my native tongue - KAMUSTA KAYO MGA TAGA PILIPINAS? Popular din ba si Susan Bolye diya, mga kababayan? Nakatira ako rito sa Englang kasama ng aking asawa at anak. Inaabangan n'yo ba ang CD ni Susan? Ako rin, siyempre! Kung mayroon iba pang Pilipino sa fansite na ito, paki-sagutin n'yo itong blog ko. Salamat po!

Posted by DR on June 24, 2009 on previous blog

patriciasart - I think Rocky 10 was replying to bibi and then bibi's wacky post is a reply to that post by Rocky10. Maybe we should let Paul work it out. I think we might be making matters worse. That's only my opinion tho. I just don't want anyone else to get their feelings hurt.

DR

That is correct but I have no idea if the reply from "bibi" is genuine. I hope "admin" have taken a look.
Posted by ca0911 on June 25, 2009
I have tried to analyze why we are so touched by Susan. The obvious is her voice, so strong and clear and pure but there is more to it than that. I was thinking about this last night and realized we are hearing the music of a pure soul. Who she is shines in her music and reaches the best in each of us. This is truly remarkable and I suppose why I cringe when anyone talks about "finding A Susan Boyle". There is only THE Susan Boyle and she is a rare combination of beauty both of music and soul. As someone said yesterday, this only comes along once in a lifetime and we are very privileged to be witnessing it.

Rocky10 - In no way was I implicating you! Your post was totally innocent. There is no way it should have sparked such a bizarre reply. And poor innocent aliz winding up in the middle of it with hurt feelings :-(

I think Paul must have sorted it by now. We are a happy lot of Susafans again!

ca0911: Yes, I totally agree with you. The purest aspect of ourselves is our soul and Susan manages to touch our souls.

When that happens there is no ego, or baggage, or separation - we all touch in at a soul level and then the magic happens.

It is not something that anyone can manufacture or make or do - it happens because it is beyond all that we know in this 3D reality.

This is Susan's true beauty - she touches her own soul or essence and in doing that carries it through with her voice until it touches our souls ...

DR

I realise that. You were the only one who read the situation correctly.

Thank you

Good morning fellow Susanites! Almost 8 a.m. here in the Bluegrass, hot and sunny. This first cup of java going down real fine. Happy to see all of us have, once again, seen a stunning performance by the most wonderful and divine Lady Susan.

@DannyG, well said. Susan doesn't remind me of any other singer either, although there were many I have enjoyed along the way. She is definitely in a class of her very own.

@ca0911, I know what you mean. Susan touches a chord somewhere deep inside - I've heard so many people say this and it is just so phenomenal that there are no words to convey the feelings she evokes. A true miracle.
Posted by Oggles on June 25, 2009
Hi Susan fans from around the world. I too admire anyone who can speak a language other than English. I have schoolgirl French and infantile Maltese!

I would love to hear Susan sing a duet with Neil Diamond, I reckon that would be blockbusting.
Posted by Meme on June 25, 2009
@Danny...you just nailed it!! Trying to compare susan to another singer "would be like trying to compare a campfire to the sun." How beautiful. How true!
Posted by DR on June 25, 2009
Singing Soul - that is beautifully said. When I listen to Susan videos I find myself staring into my monitor screen totally motionless and grinning ear to ear. I am completely mesmerized and have even missed the phone ringing as if she has put me in a trance. Once I even jumped up and started applauding and cheering. My husband came running in from the other room to see if I was okay. It's almost as if I can feel her - must be her soul touching mine.
Posted by ZOEY on June 25, 2009
Good morning all. Anyone know if Susan is a go for tonight's performance? Haven't found any press, yet, about last night in Birmingham, anyone else? She was so over-the-top fabulous yesterday the tabloid press probably won't touch her since they specialize in degrading people, but I thought maybe we would see some rave reviews from the legit press. Anyone?
Well, I'll soon be off to work, will stop by to say hi later in the day. Heat wave coming to these parts so stay cool everyone and have a good day.
Posted by Marie-Fan Forever Canada on June 25, 2009
DANNYG: Good moning ! Yep I love Susan Boyle, I love the Lady and I love her Voice !!! She is Susan and she is singing like Susan... I have quite varied musical tastes and I take great pleasure in imagining how she could sing many many different songs...I'm sure that her voice is more suited to certain things andI am sure that she has her own musical tastes and preferences...eagerly waiting to hear and see what she wants to sing and how she wants to sing it... as far as her fans go...I hope we keep an open mind as to who she will connect to...it is just starting to unfold...
As for me as a fan, I would describe myself as 51 y.o. (young at heart, I believe LOL ) with a great interest for the arts in general and especially vocal music and great voices...I love all sorts of musical things.. except country music, hip-hop, heavy metal and hard rock....Ciao !
Posted by Randma on June 25, 2009
One of the things which has been so enthralling to watch in this journey is Susan's transformation, both professionally and physically.

So many have noted, and rightfully so, her tremendous increase in confidence and even the ability to produce such polished, yet emotionally stirring, renditions of songs we have heard ump-teen times. It still gives me goosebumps to listen to her songs and I can't count the number of times I've listened. (My husband says I'm "eaten up" with this.)

I have also noted, as I know that terijay, DR and squeakybird have, Susan's significant weight loss already. When I compared how she looked in that silver dress at the finals and then observed the freeze frame at the end of this Birmingham performance, there is quite a noticeable change. I think it was terijay who commented that they may need to do an outfit change by the end of the tour if Susan keeps this up. Yup, that neckline would be hanging down to her navel if they don't... Might make us think she was trying to imitate some pop stars if that happened!!! :) LOL
Posted by A.Olive on June 25, 2009
Hello everyone, I just simply love these two videos, I have continued to watch where she is breathing and do not see her breathing. What a magnificant and, strong powerful voice. Love the way she brings in that audience to her. Did you see where she holds her hand out and brings her fingers towards her body. she does it more than once and it is as if she is saying welcome and come on in. How fantastic it that. Never ever have I seen someone do that with her audience quite that way before.

DR You are nice too support you friend on this site. I am sure she sees the love through all who supported her on this site. She will be back I am sure of it. This site is so so so loving. It amazes me to no end!!!!!!!!
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@DR - same thing here. I end up cheering and applauding for Susan, tears rolling down my face, feeling so proud - and I'm all alone here. My dog keeps looking around like, "What? what?" Afflicted with Susanitis.

@ZOEY, I haven't heard whether she's singing tonight, but will keep looking for any news.
Posted by Oggles on June 25, 2009
May I reiterate a verse I wrote last night:

They say the big bank theory
Was how the universe unfurled
But it was Susan really
Who brought her love to all the world.
Posted by Maria Jean on June 25, 2009
Welcome to our new Japanese friend. You'll love this site. What a performance our girl gave last night. I keep she can't get any better but she does. @DR, I think we all go into a trance hearing her sing with soul and feeling. I think this is why God put her on earth, to bring such joy to all of us. And to think she had to struggle and endure so much, it makes me cry. At this
YouTube site of last night's performance, there were 1,122 viewers and 119 comments. The submitter just coulnd't believe the response. His response to her: Abolutely brilliant and the crowd loved her. This should shut up all those nasty tabloid reporters. Excuse my French. Am waiting for some mice reports on American TV. Maybe we should request it from the TV.

Posted by ZOEY on June 25, 2009
@Lonnirose, thank you! :-)
Posted by CanadianBill on June 25, 2009
Simply by being her magnificent self, Susan is turning the Britain's Got Talent Tour into the Susan Boyle Tour. Not to take anything away from the other performers, I hope they're all having the time of their lives, but its a total joy to see her like this. And especially to see that she is reaching across all age groups. I've read several times now of young people going for Diversity and falling in love with Susan. That's called Charisma!
Posted by youareloved on June 25, 2009
THANK YOU, THANK YOU LORD GOD! Susan's confidence is increasing and she is getting better and better! Just when one would be inclined to believe Susan must be getting tired of singing those 2 songs, she comes out to the stage and gives another terrific performance, even better than the last! And just when one is inclined to worry that the audience may not like her, especially the teens, then we hear the shouts of adoration even from the young ones who seem to accept her as their own rock star. It is so awesome it cannot be explained other than to say, it's because God's hand is on Susan Boyle who is being raised for such a time as this. It can only be because of YOUR ANOINTING, oh God of Susan! Thank YOu again! Once more, for this day, we ask for Your guidance, wisdom and protection for her. We ask and decree favour, favour, favour for Your vessel, Susan Boyle, as she touches the souls of those who will listen and soften their hearts to receive Your touch and love. PTL!

PS WONDERFUL to see people here from all over the world! Welcome to ALL.
Posted by Maria Jean on June 25, 2009
@Randma You're so funny with your comment. The tabloids, expecially THE SUN, had some very unfattering pictures of Susan. So they better take some tucks in that dress of hers.
Posted by techiegram on June 25, 2009
Susan seems to be very much relaxed doing her performance and her interaction with the audience just shows the wonderful person she is and now she can see and hear just how much she is loved by her adoring fans, of which I am one, and sure do wish I could be in that audience. Had to start my workday with my Susan fix. Thanks Tommy for the upload. Marie from Philly

Thanks a lot for this video! I think this is the best one I've seen since the very first audition video of Susan! It has a bit of a close-up, so we can see more of the expression on her face, which I just love to see. Specially in this performance. In my opinion, this is also her best performance to date.
Posted by DANNYG. on June 25, 2009
Susan knows she is loved, and I hope she also recognizes the power this gives her to shape her career to her choosing in any planning or negotiating.

Posted by DR on June 25, 2009
youareloved - I also have been noticing the young people are responding in a very positive way to Susan. For far too many years the young people have tormented Susan, calling her names and throwing stones. How that must have hurt this kind woman! Now the young people are chanting Susan's name and screaming 'I love you' and throwing kisses. And Susan opens her arms and accepts them. How easily Susan forgives. If only each of us could be so quick to heal from our hurts and forgive. The world would be so much better for it. Thank you Susan, for showing me how to be a better human, just as your mother showed you. God Bless!

@TommyUSA; Fabulous to hear you've seen your high school sweetheart has entered the Susaverse ;>) Do wish now I'd had one of those 40 years ago when was a high school senior, but then I'd had one for six years (2000-2006) who'd I've known for nearly 30 now.

Vicki Smith, about Pebbles: There would not be a problem bringing Pebbles to the US. But when they went back home, Pebbles would be quarrantined for a year at a quarrantine center. This is to keep rabies out of GB.This would not be a workable situation for Susan.

Another great Susaday is well on its way here. So much fun amongst us these days. My Comcast "top news" in entertainment had not one but TWO articles on Susan...one Simon silliness and the other very complimentary. Susan, thanks for the "Memory" and the Dream as well. and @DR how beautiful your reminder of the power of forgiveness. SO powerful vs the chains of bitterness.
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 25, 2009
@suethenurse, pets traveling back and forth between the mainland US and the UK do not have to be put into quarantine, according to the UK goverment site, provided certain procedures are followed. Still I wouldn't want to put my cat through the stress of transatlantic travel and change of habitation very often. It's hard enough on me! Besides there being the risk that some government employee could decide you didn't do something right and put the cat into quarantine anyway. Even if you could prove them wrong, who needs the headache of fighting the UK government bureaucracy?

But cats generally adjust quite nicely to anyone who treats them well, so if Susan has trustworthy cat-loving people in London, she could safely leave Pebbles in her flat while she traveled, even for months at a time.

Just watched our newest Birmingham video again to get my Susafix for the day. She just gets better and better -I don't know how, but she does. Ah, the darlin' sweet girl! I'd still like to hug her.

A great big welcome to all new members and to all around the world who've just joined us. You'll find this the place to be if you want to celebrate the wonder that is Susan Boyle. Over and over I hear the same thing - that she has touched you in a way that noone else ever has. She is a miracle. She is.

Susan said her mother was "one in a million." Susan is also "one in a million." I just love her and can't wait to hear more songs in the future. So beautiful, Lady Susan! Thank you for this site and all the videos and pictures.

BethinTheUSA, thank you for the update. We used to show dogs--and it was a nightmare.Especially when a friend lost his British and American champion and multiple Best of Show winner Bulldog in flight.I love my animals too much to put them through a transcontinental flight.
Posted by Allikat on June 25, 2009
How is it possible that Susan just seems to keep right on singing better and better with each performance? Thank you for the video upload, Tommy--it's lovely! What a way for another wonderful Susaday to begin--with a major Susafix here!
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 25, 2009
These performances just keep getting better, which I didn't think was possible, but it obviously is possible! The truth is, Susan now needs this BGT tour about as much as she needs a hole in the head! She's got the live performing down to a fine art, so now's the time to go to Prague and record that CD!
Posted by youareloved on June 25, 2009
HELLO AGAIN TO ALL IN SUSAN'S GLOBAL VILLATE! I suggest you visit the youtube video of Susan's Birmingham performance just to read the comments of the one who posted the video on youtube. He/she was so excited that people from the US were watching it as well! Here's the link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM3MoHh_7Wk. The person (I believe it's a young person) also said that he/she is actually a Diversity fan but found Susan incredible and that Susan was 'by far the star of the show'! He/she also added that Susan got standing ovations after both songs. Isn't it so great to hear that our Susan is touching the soul of old and young alike?! Thank you for the poster of the video on youtube (is it the same one here uploaded by Tommy? - thanks to you too Tommy). It is the best birthday present for me on this day, my nth birthday!
Posted by mclim on June 25, 2009
There has been so much talk of Susan possibly being on AGT. You do realize that if she is on it, it is NOT to compete on that show, but to only do a guest appearance and perform? AGT has already started it's television season and it is not unusual for them to bring in outside entertainment, later in the series for a performance. Carrie Underwood was a winner on American Idol, I think in 2002. She has went on to become a very big star and has won about every award imaginable. They have brought her back to perform several times.

Also Piers knows he isn't going to find another Susan Boyle in America but he has to say things to try and get his ratings up for the show. He couldn't very well go on TV and say "We know we aren't going to ever have another Susan Boyle but I guess we still have to go on with the show." He is saying what Simon is telling him to say.

Gettin my Susan fix listening to latest video above before being late for work (again) cos I'm hanging here. I'm to be there at 10 and fly in th door at 9:57ish. Well it's a Susan thing - they wouldn't understand. I was thinking I would like to have her PR person check this site and then show her all the postings as to what a FUSS we are making over her. It would also let them know the 'pulse' of her fans. So happy she's find her groove and feeling comfortable on stage and turning out PERFECT performances every time. Just finish listening to Memory - she's fantabulous! off to fly down the road to work! Oh maybe I'll just listen one more time.

What a different world I live in now that I am a Susan watcher. Three months ago, first thing I would do in the morning would be to check for e-mail messages, reply to any I had to, read a local newspaper, then have breakfast. In the evening, the last thing I would do was to check for e-mails. NOW, first thing I do is to check Susan's Fansite to see if any new videos or pictures have been posted, catch up on the Blog, and generally check everything on the site. If I go out I check for anything new on the site and when I come back I check again. I now neglect my old routine. My world has certainly changed. What an obsession. Hugs and kisses to Susan. XOXOXO.

Good morning everyone. I just finished drinking my morning coffee while watching Lady Susan. I literally have tears in my eyes watching this "OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE!" I love and adore this INCREDIBLE LADY THAT GOD HAS SENT TO THE WORLD TO INSPIRE AND HUMBLE THE HEARTS OF MEN AND WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD. In all my years I have never seen anything like this. My mother (God rest her soul) loved this type of singing She would have loved our Susan beyond words. Not just her voice but her entire being. I love you all so much. My husband doesn't talk a lot, so it means so much to communicate my feelings to others who I have so much in common. Well friends I have to go run errands, but I'll be back. I invite you all to please click on my pretty@55 logo and read my profile, and you will find out why I love and adore Susan so much. LOL EVERYONE
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Marie, she now holds all the cards and she knows just how to play 'em! The slimoids and idiot media can go hang themselves, because Susan has beaten them all with her glorious talent that is unequalled anywhere. It's so amazing how far she's come in just two months - I've lived a long time and have never seen this happen, but am SO happy it's happened for our sweet Susan. We are actually seeing her realize her dream, watching it unfold day by day. When this tour is over she will just continue to climb higher and higher. She said "I'd like to be a professional singer". Well, darlin' you are, and the best in the world!
Posted by youareloved on June 25, 2009

I've never been 'obsessed' by an entertainer before, and certainly not by a singer like Susan, but here in So Cal I can't let an evening go by without an update and a song. I just love this lady. Watching Susan's Birmingham performance was incredible; all her power and beauty was there and more...clearly the best to date for me...it just gets better. Where did that energy come from? I'm so pleased.It's like you know you're watching history in the making; all of this will one day be a movie, book, and she will be a legend. Yet here we are now, watching it all unfold. Wow.
Posted by IndySue on June 25, 2009
Just watched original audition, it's been a long time because I love to see how she has grown. I still get goose bumps. What I found funny was the two guys trying to get her attention to go back out on stage. They kept yelling "Miss, Miss" She now has a name! Susan! In such a short time, everyone in the world know who Susan is! Yea!
Posted by mclim on June 25, 2009

Yes, I want BGT, Simon, and Piers to know that Susan is not going to be the tail on anyone's kite. She is bigger than them, she is bigger than anyone. They will have to get along the best they can while she goes gloriously on her way.

Posted by ponylady on June 25, 2009
@Pretty@55 - Such a lovely profile. Just as Susan gave her all for her mother at the end, you can be sure your mother finshed her walk here so proud of you and knew all the teen trials were "Well Worth It!" At 65 I can look back on similar regrets, but we know God gives us a new day each and every 24 hours to love and be loved.

DVD of the BIRMINGHAM 24 JUNE performance now available:

As promised, I have created an ISO (disc image) file of a DVD of Susan's Birmingham (24 June) 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 151Mb!

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 SUSANDVD11.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 SUSANDVD11.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.

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 11 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!

Here's a neat site from another fan club. Hope you enjoy it.
http://susanboylefanclub-usa.blogspot.com/2009/06/susan-boyle-peoples-singer.html

I think it's so great to have so many countries represented here. Hi to everyone, esp our new fan from Japan. When I read her post earlier, then saw one from Germany and know we have the Netherlands and Africa and others, wow. I searched on You Tube and listen to Louie Armstrong sing It's a Wonderful World. Susan has united us. I wish I could make a video with that -- hint hint for the creative ones. Blessings to all.

With the bullying she received and how she has handled it, I think Dr. Phil and his son (who has written and has been on a campaign against bullying) can learn some things from her. She probably has had a great impact on bullying and I'm assuming that for years to come, she will be an icon promoting love and peace within society at large including the entertainment industy which is a soap opera. Susan has set the standard like no one can and has taught some lessons for the less popular people in life - she is an angel - a fun one also!

Well, it's 2am here. I'm turning the susawatch over to all of you that are in daytime now. Take good care of the Belle of Blackburn and I'll be back tomorrow to relieve you while you sleep. Ni-night to all.

@nalcar, you can watch the audition tape on our homepage.

There's a new video on the homepage too from fossilbarb, with the song "Sweet Sue" showing pictures of our sweet Susan - it's very uplifting and happy. Check it out when you get a chance. Found myself singing right along with it.

Hello all true, honest Susan Boyle fans.

I have just joined the site using an absoltely MADE UP E.MAIL ADDRESS - this can, and is being done all the time. This is WHY I did it this morning.

I noticed lots of strange stuff last night. Scottish ramblings, which, believe you me, I DID decipher and it was utter nastiness.

No sooner had that person disappeared than they 'popped' up again on the new blog using a different 'disguise'.

If you try to message them, you HONEST fans, the messages will not get through.

The e.mail addresses are phony. I have tried to message some so-called NEW fans only to have the messages retured to me as UNDELIVERED.

Message your welcomes to new people. If they message you back then they're probably ok.

Most come on at night or in the early hours depending on where they are posting from.

I have had phony emails sent to me by fictitious fans.

Admin has a huge job to keep this site up and running for the KIND, HONEST fans. I fall in that category...I am one of you. I have been here from the beginning .

I AM NOT NEW MEMBER HAIKU. This account, opened with a phone email address will be disabled as soon as this message is submitted..

I am just trying to help the friends I have made here and the the GOOD people on this site. here.

Posted by Marie-Fan Forever Canada on June 25, 2009
@Godscre: I think that Susan Boyle is also teaching some lessons to "more popular" people as well...she is also teaching some lessons to the rich, powerful and famous as well...there is plenty to learn from Susan Boyle for every single one of us... Ciao

Thanks for the recent videos. Glad she had some red lighting behind her during IDAD. She has some great concentration with the distractions. Good to see her mingle with the audience during Memories, her signature song now.

Thanks @DR and@mclim for your birthday greetings!Advanced birthday greetings to you, @mclim! I'm sure my husband wouldn't mind me cueing to buy Susan Boyle's CD, but I don't think I could drag him along to a Susan Boyle concert, or anybody's concert for that matter! He loves Susan Boyle's singing (he turns up the volume of our computer when he feels like listening to her again and her voice fills the whole house!), but would rather play siduko (sp?) than going to any concert. So lucky you @mclim if you can get your husband to buy you Susan's concert tickets!
Posted by nibbana on June 25, 2009
Great Video! Keeps me yearning for that 1st CD to come out around Christmas. That is so far away...what are we going to do until then and after this BGT tour is over?

A great way to download YouTube videos is with the YouTube video downloader. Fast, simple works great. Just enter the YouTube address and it grabs it and stores it in any file on your computer for later viewing. It's free!

I remember the saying, "A force to be reckoned with" and now that's Susan! I laugh to think someone complained she was hard to manage (read "knew what she wanted") well, watch out now! I'll bet the people who think their in charge are going to be frustrated beyond belief, 'cause Susan's got the power, now. She's being empowered, every time she sings, by thousands of screaming, adoring fans and many more like us who dote on every breath she takes and every smile she makes.

A toast to Susan, oh, you beautiful gal!

I wish I could be fly on the wall when Simon and company are discussing Susan's plans with her. They're in for a big surprise after dealing with 18 year olds who are desperate for a break in the business. Susan no longer needs a "break". They need her a lot more than she needs them. I am sooo loving this.

Troll Alert!! I had one last read after signing out and had to sign in again to email our site administrator. Beware (hope I'm wrong). Guess I'll find out in the am. Goodnight all.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Haiku, or whoever, thanks for the warning. That troll last night was spotted pretty quickly and shot down. We must all be ever vigilant and report trolls ASAP so they can be banned from the site. I realize they can come back using a different name, but sooner or later they reveal their nasty intentions and we can get rid of them yet again.

True fans, just don't ever post Susan's address, etc. or anything personal that you know about her. The last thing we want is for someone to send her unkind correspondence or even stalk her. Protecting our sweet girl is of utmost importance.

Here is the full version. I just finished it. It is taken from the clip where Susan loosens up after the 1st week of media attention. Some how she conveniantly danced right back into her first dancestep, making it possible to do a continuous loop with a smooth transition.
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 25, 2009
@Haiku; Software our Administrator is using obviously isn't sophisticated enough to "trap" Trolls, isn't HIS fault but Magnify's.

When setting up a user account for a "chat" site like this one two basic things need to be done:

1. verification of VALID e-mail address by sending out a notification message to the user's e-mail, if it comes back undelivered that's an automatic "kick-out."

2. Unique Handle names; To change one you SHOULD get permission of the Administrator first so he can check to be sure it ain't already being used.

Mom's SCREAMING at me to come have breakfast - CHAO!!!

@Retired, I haven't found any duplicate handles in the member list so far, but I wonder if someone tries to sign up with the same member name if the system will "overwrite" the former account with the new one? It shouldn't work that way, though.

You are an ANGEL sent to us :) Thank you Susan:)

Hi,, all fellow Susa-lovers...

I just came on this morning to listen to last night's performance... MAGNIFICENT!!!!!

What joy to see Susan so relaxed and beautiful. She is so gracious and charming... and her voice moved me to tears once more!!!

I logged in last night but could not get through the 1000+ posts! I so enjoy hearing others share their enthusiasm for "Our Lady of Blackburn"... What a joy, what a blessing.

Welcome back to Tommy, we are family now, please don't ever leave us. And welcome to all the new family members as well.

Maybe when the tour is over I'll have time to go back and read all of the posts; right now it's hard, because my hubby, bless him, is concerned about my Susa-addiction and I can't stay on more than a few minutes at a time....

But I send out my love and hugs to all of you, and to SUSAN, who Lights Up My Life (thanks again for that video, Tommy!!!!)

Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, dear youareloved.

@Danny Ramone, thanks. Is she cute or what!!! I can't look at her or listen to her enough. That sweet girl stole my heart the first time I ever saw her and she still has it, along with my soul. (Sorry, God)

Here's a scenario: TWO MONTHS AGO:

Simon: What's your name, dahling?
Susan: My name is Susan Boyle

A YEAR FROM NOW:

Simon: Susan, hello!
Susan: Uh, hello. (Puzzled look) I recognize you from somewhere, but . . . . . what's your name again?

@Randma: True, isn't it?? I laugh at myself sometimes!
Since I got so sick I sold my house to my daughter and built a nice apartment attached to it. She can see me at the computer when she goes to her patio door. She called me at 11:00 the other night.."Mom...go to bed!!"
Geez...can't get away with anything anymore!

Good Morning Susan's Friends ~ I have been going to the huffingtonpost site, winner of the Webbie Awards, for news, then to its entertainment page. They have a Susan Boyle page, but nothing new on it since the alleged cat episode and that interview with Simon Cowell. They do not link any good news about Susan's outstanding performances and the incredible audience response. Apparently, good news is no news..That is unfortunate, as a number of people who responded in the comments section to the bad news at huffpo have a totally skewed notion of who this woman is, based on those bogus stories.
I have written huffpo and asked them to be fair in the stories they link. If you would care to do the same, and want to ask them to report Susan's real story, you can go to huffintonpost.com and click 'Contact Us', and then to the Tips section, and either
tell what you know about Susan or link one of the positive stories from another location. If enough of us do that,perhaps they will respond with a good news story,
befitting of Susan's beneficent effect on people.

Happy Summer !
Posted by jpnlvsb on June 25, 2009
Good evening everyone! I'm sorry that I left here without telling anything. I had to cook denner and feed my family.

I am deeply grateful to you all for giving me such nice comments a lot. I've been crying all day with Susan's great performanse video and now your kindness. But it sure took a lot of time to go through!

And I just have got a mail from admin. Should I reply to this? I'm scared of trolls which you are talking about and I don't know what they are. Or Are you trying to make sure I'm not the one? If so I am a bit upset. Is techiegram the admin's name?
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 25, 2009
I was just watching the lastest performance and I was amazed at how much Susan responds to the audience.Its wonderful, she really interacts with them,lovely. After following her story for 3 months now I can see this journey she is on has been therapeutic for her.

Posted by debbie r on June 25, 2009
@youareloved, Thank you for your prayer to God for Susan. I too pray for her and wanted others to know what a blessing she has been in my life. As I read the blogs I know that we all have been touched by an Angel in His own time. As many have said she has a pure soul that comes through and grabs my heart. Did anyone notice in the Birmingham up close video her fingers on the left hand moved as though they were playing the notes on a piano? I believe she hears the music in her soul and there is no disconnect from the physical to the soul for Susan. Does that sound hokey? Well anyway, I love and adore you Susan!

@jpnlvsb, it may be someone from the fansite merely trying to confirm that you are who you say you are, due to the troll invasion lately. Don't be concerned.

Your saying that Susan makes you cry strikes a chord - she does that to all of us. Gosh, sometimes I cry just looking at her picture so you can imagine what I do when she sings. Every new video, and the old ones too, reduce me to a sobbing mass. There's just something about Susan . . . . . . .

"At times our own light goes out & is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."--Albert Schweitzer
Albert was a wise man; this quote from him reminds me of my own gratitude to my loved ones both near and far. The
light of their love sustains and warms me. It allows me to go beyond myself in order to see and feel what is around me. What I have seen and felt is the universal energy being shared and passed on to millions of people around the world in the form of fan-ship, friendship and love for a lovely Scottish woman named Susan Margaret Boyle. She indeed has lighted the flame within me and I shall be forever grateful.

Hi villagers!

I had to drag myself away from Susan this morning and go help my sister spray paint her lawn furniture - drying now so here I am at her puter! Is our girl ever rocking the audiences. Along with everyone else, waiting for that interview. I hope the press ordeal will not make Susan more guarded and less spontaneous in her speech and actions going forward. I wanna see the little susadance again - just adorable. I'll give Simon credit for giving Paul Potts one piece of advice. "Stay as you are and not who you think you should be." Of course, Susan wouldn't know how to be anything other than herself.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
Thanks guys! @Randma, that's hysterical! Every one of those judges are now being associated with Susan - I never heard of any of them except Simon, and I couldn't have picked him out of a lineup. She's gonna leave 'em all in her wake, and they'll spend the rest of their lives bragging that they know Susan Boyle. As Jackie Gleason used to say, "How sweet it is"!!
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 25, 2009
Just imagine what Susan must sound like in person??! And then imagine the sound of her voice w/o the background noise of fans screaming and shouting out her name!! When she gets into a recording studio and is able to really sing w/o all the extraneous noise and it's just she and the musical accompaniment,--------it's going to blast us all over the moon!! Can't wait to hear that!! What sublime thrills are in store for us in the future!!

@WAMcKinley, you are so right! Teesiel told us that hearing her in person is a whole new experience. My dream is to actually see her in concert, but that upcoming CD is sure gonna be a dream come true, too. To think of that golden voice in my house - oh WOW. I so hope, too, that she does some DVD's. I love looking at her when she's singing.

@IvoryMist, I hadn't noticed but you're right - it's gone. Maybe they're working on it in some way.

Thanks @Randma for the b-day greetings. I can imagine Susan singing 'Happy Birthday' to me. It sounds lovely, heavenly! Thanks @debbie r for your comment. It's so encouraging to know there are many, many people in this site who pray for Susan. God is good!
Posted by entropydecides on June 25, 2009
I am a little concerned that Susan is not canceling concerts and no one seems to be monitoring her fatigue anymore. I love the videos, I'm an addict, what will I do when the tour ends? I think many of us will suffer withdrawals. Nonetheless, I hope Susan is still having fun.

@lonnirose: Yes,--DVDs!! That would be the best thing of all!! So much of the enjoyment of Susan is watching her,---all the sweet gestures---and some of the funny little things she does like when she missed her cue due to the noise and asked to start again. That was priceless!! I'd also love a DVD of a good interview with her,---something with a real journalist who knows how to ask compelling questions and not some of the stupid things others have asked her. I so LOVE hearing Susan speak. She could read the phone book, and I'd want to be there to watch and listen!!

Magnify.net's software used to power Susan-Boyle.com should prevent account overwrites, ONLY our Administrator has "life & death" power over our accounts.

What I THINK is going on are Trolls creating Susan-Boyle.com member accounts with bogus e-mail addresses which aren't being validity tested by Magnify.net software used to power this website; simple to do, just send an acknowlegement e-mail to the e-mail address and if it comes back undelivered BINGO, the user account can't be created until a valid address is entered. Truly clever vermin write bogus e-mail addresses taking advantages of chinks in TCP/IP et.al. data transmission codes that'll spoof Magnify.net servers as being valid addresses, happens all the time with Spammers.

Gotta jet off to see the doctor - CHAO!

Wow, her last performance was great. I really cannot say one is better than the last because she is good no matter what…I noticed when she begins to sing she transforms the ordience. She sings with heart and soul what gifts to us as fans…
I love this site its great…I think I am addicted..:)

This is no reflection on Susan whom I have ALWAYS considered beauiful, but I recently read this and thought it was lovely:" The end of the world to a caterpillar is just the beginning of life for a butterfly". I believe the word for this change is metamorphosis and that is exactly what our Susan is doing!

@Lonnirose:Thank you so much for your support. So sweet of you!

Anyway my ID "jpnlvsb" seems uncomfortable to some people.I mean not easy to remember? I mean to make it "Japan love Susan Boyle". But it's too long isn't it?So I took vowels off! I thought it works well among people who use Alphabets daily. Maybe I should have taken "sushi" , "Sukiyaki" or "Fjiyama" as my ID instead.

It's 1:00a.m.here in Japan. I must get sleep for tomorrow.
OH! I remember now. I came back to this blog to ask you if you checked the video on youtube "Susan Boyle LIVE in Aberdeen Excellent quality" It made me cry the most.

Posted by CzechLadyUSA on June 25, 2009
aliijuddsex, the young lady who recorded last night's performance was asked if there was any booing at Susan as occurred one of the earlier perfomances. Her response was: "oh my days!I can't believe that! No one booed her! Everyone loved her, you can't hear it in my video but people were chanting her name during the performance. And she got a standing ovation after both performances!"
Posted by Marie-Fan Forever Canada on June 25, 2009
@IvoryMist: I noticed too. I liked the little red button...but it is a catch 22 as it doen't give a clear picture to the world as who is really interested about Susan Boyle and how many...I just watched this fansite for weeks before deciding to join...I would bet that thousands of people come and visit the site on a regular basisbut the red button doesn't show this...many won't join but still care a great deal about Susan Boyle..they may be afraid of cyberspace, they may not be fluent enough in english. they may have some "privacy and security issues",they may fear they do not have enough time or skills to contribute...whatever...if we could just have at least a red button telling us which part of the world is on line...
many people may care a great deal about Susan Boyle and are visiting on a regular basis without being"counted" by the red button...I wonder if admin has a way to keep tracks of how many come to visit ...???

Hi Susanatics...Have you noticed, there are NO Susa-pics, or at least not posted yet, of Susan arriving and/or departing these last 2 performances!!! And there are NO Susa-news articles all about rants, and cats, and all those other negative words? And there are 2 SPECTACTULAR SUSA-FORMANCES for which the press doesn't seem to be able to find anything wrong with? In fact the British scum-bag press is quiet (thank God for small favors!).

Might it just be a coincident OR is it the results of alllll our pounding last week on Max Clifford and the POOR job his agency was doing managing Susan Boyle's security and publicity??? Myself, I do NOT think it is a coincident, but the results of all the Susa-fans letting them know exactly what the bear does in the woods about the job they have been doing. And Max and crew is certainly aware of us, all with 'puters ready to attack should the need arise.

She's getting more confident, and I think she's beginning to realize that people really do love her, and putting the nightmare behind her.
Posted by treesmary on June 25, 2009
debbie r said above, "I believe she hears the music in her soul and there is no disconnect from the physical to the soul for Susan. Does that sound hokey?" No, I think you are right on. Imagine if she had had dancing lessons.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009

@Marie-Fan Foever:That sounds exactly me! I noticed this site in April. But I couldn't come in for the reasons you just pointed. This site has a tool for tlanslation. But It doesn't work well for Japanese, sometimes horribly doesn't make any sense. So I always loved the red button, praying for someone from my country to come in first. There are so many Japanese visiting this site all over my country, I know. I hope they are enjoying and getting many information about Susan, too.

Lonnirose and Carnegie61, you two are hilarious!!! Of course, what WAS I thinking??? Piers will undoubtedly be remember for the BK fragrance, "fire-meets-desire", eau-de-charbroiled hamburger. What a scent!!! And what a "beefcake" photo with behind-the-scenes video!!

If you have read the comments on Piers' website about that ad, you will see that it has left an undeniable impression on his fans...comments like "Darn, that's smokin' or should I say broilin'?" "Does this mean all the fast food cooks have ladies lined up to follow them?" "Geeze, Piers, don't tell me this means you are taking Susan to Burger King for that date!"
Posted by purplegothicqueen on June 25, 2009
I have downloaded Susan's performance at Birmingham yesterday and love listening to it over and over again. Sounding more and more wonderful every day. Growing in confidence and interacting with the audience. I am so happy for her that the audience love her so much. She is looking gorgeous. I have noticed the weight loss, so long as it isn't too drastic and it's not through stress or her being pressurised, I think it okay. She is looking really lovely. I hope her CD is available soon.

To PagePage and Vicki Smith. Earlier - don't know how much earlier, you spoke of Kate Smith. Yes, I'm old enough to have heard her on the radio and later to see her on TV, and loved her, too. Another favorite of mine is Vera Lynn, sweetheart of the British troups of WWII. Now, you know my vintage! :-) Dame Vera Lynn's voice is so resonant and her enunciation so correct. Beautiful voice - still living in England at age 92. Susan has them all beat, I think - with her voice quality and range, etc., etc. She's certainly the heroine of this era, huh?
A link to Vera Lynn is below.

Oh, DANNYG., you are right. Maybe she has had dancing lessons.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Frazier, I have a RECORD of Vera Lynn - I always loved her sound. She was another who had that lovely soaring quality in her voice and sounded very sincere when she sang. Susan's voice is much more beautiful, but I can imagine her doing some of Vera's lovely songs. Kate Smith I don't quite remember, but my parents liked her.

Of course to me there is noone who compares to Susan. She is so much greater than the others, in every way.
Posted by terijay on June 25, 2009
@purplegoth- I think the reason Miss Boyle's face lately looks so much lovlier, is because she has lost weight, and the fullness in her face is less, and her cheekbones are more prominent.

NCGR:http://ncgrsandiego.org/articles/susanboyle.html
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 25, 2009
We haven't seen any news, especially in the trash department, because I think Susan has made them eat their words by her performances. I've never seen someone get on stage, so calm, and sing with such power like any of us would just sit down and eat a piece of toast. What more can be said that hasn't already been about the nature of her vocals. I'm going to be kinda sad when the tour is over cause we won't get to see her singing like we do almost everyday, but, then again, I'm looking forward to it because then we'll see more things from her. So, I'm going to go with this line of thinking. I don't care what she sings, where she sings, who she sings with. I just want to hear her sing, PERIOD! In the shower, on her front porch, in her garden, don't matter to me where it's at.
Posted by B.J. on June 25, 2009
Welcome to jpnlvsb (easier to remember with the explanation), Wanda Kay, and all other new members! We're glad to have you.

Many comments have been made about the mesmerizing effect Susan's voice has -- forgetting to eat, being late to work, staying up too late, not getting housework done, etc. I have a funny story along this line to share.

Several weeks ago I was driving back to my home in Kansas from a visit to my daughter's in Colorado. I was listening to a CD of Susan's "Cry Me A River" that my daughter downloaded for me, plus music on NPR, and enjoying the beautiful weather, the scenic countryside, etc. Got completely caught up in it, especially "Cry Me A River." So much so that I forgot to stop for gas. All of a sudden I realized this, checked the gauge, and saw the needle was on EMPTY and the orange light was on! I was 5 miles from the nearest small town, but fortunately, I made it there -- only to find out the town no longer has a gas station. I wound up buying 2 gallons of gas from a man who was trimming weeds in his front yard, just enough to get to the next small town and buy more!! Thank goodness I didn't have to call my son to come bail me out -- I'd never hear the end of that (especially since my kids think I've "gone over the top" in my obsession with Susan Boyle!)

Posted by Linda Sharon on June 25, 2009
Amazingly Critical: I don't think that's the right name for you - I think Amazingly positive is a better fit. I like what you said that she made them eat their words. Well how can anyone criticize her performances - they are as Piers says, 'stunning'. Her ease on stage speaks for itself (ya like eating toast lol)- she is a cosumate performer - professional. Ah poor tabloids - they'll have to run around and pick on somebody else now....life is hard when yer a bottom feeder I reckon.
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 25, 2009
Here's an interesting question we might be able to discuss. In IDAD, "voices soft as thunder", am I the only one who prefers the way she sang that line in the audition over the tour performances? I just absolutely love the way she hits that note in Thunder in the audition. What is all your favorite vocal notes in a particular song? I love the way she sings SEEEEEEEEEEEEEMS in the tour. I've tried it myself, and, well, I won't ever quit my day job.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 25, 2009
consumate that is
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 25, 2009
Oooooooo, I picked Amazingly Critical because I thought at the time, when Susan's audition came out that, it was amazing and critical to the world because it brought something so uplifting, considering what you read in the news everyday. That's how I felt and still feel, which is why I come here a lot. You get so sick of all the doom and gloom everyday online that this was just extraordinary and well, 9-1-1 critical for human nature. Wish we could see more of these types of stories.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 25, 2009
BJ - right on. I was late for work cos I listened to Susan's latest video too many times. Am I gettin funny in the head or what. Oh well this is one place where we're all the same on that score. We're captivated with a darling Scottish sweetheart.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 25, 2009
Yes amazingly Critical: Re: doom and gloom: We had a friend who showed up in our home distraught over a marriage break up a few days ago who took pills and booze and we had to call an ambulance and it was so heartbreaking when his 12 year old son trailed in. After the dust died down I thought, "I know -I'll go to my happy place - this web site." Susan brings sweetness to the world. A real ray of sunshine.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@B.J., that's hysterical. Tell you what I did: I've been on this fansite so much that I suddenly realized I hadn't stopped to pay bills and only had 1 day left to get the electric and water bills paid before the due date. It's like nothing matters anymore. Obsessed? Ya think?

SCENARIO:

Phone rings, maid picks up: Miss Boyle's residence.
Piers: Uh, is Susan in please?
Maid: May I ask who's calling?
Piers: It's Piers Morgan.
Maid: Just a moment, sir, I'll see if she's in.

Piers on hold waiting, waiting, waiting - 5 minutes.

Susan: Hello Piers.
Piers: Susan, I'm calling about our dinner date.
Susan: Dinner date? Oh, uh yes?
Piers: You know, the one you promised me.
Susan: I did? I can't quite recall . . . .. . .
Piers: You know, I asked you on the Larry King show.
Susan: Oh . . . . yes. Piers I am sorry, perhaps another time - I'll have one of my people call - all right? Really must go now - I have an engagement.

Susan to Maid: If he calls again, please tell him I'm not in.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 25, 2009
While I'm goofing of at work here: ok - I love all the spectacular full stops out notes in the middle of both songs. Love the way she sings mam-ories and says togeth-thah and weath-ah.

Posted by joyceleo on June 25, 2009
I am becoming more relaxed myself about Susan being a world-class, incomparable performer. She touches the soul in a mighty way and she is so amazingly versatile that she can perform in array of venues, as DannyG mentioned earlier. But alas, I am becoming a victim of brainworm, waking up in the middle of the night with her voice in my head. I have never been a fan club member, a blogger, or a chat room participant before. If this is a second childhood, as someone suggested, then I might as well enjoy it. And Susan too! What a gift!

I keep imagining Susan's dear Mother looking down from Heaven and smiling broadly. She knows her little girl has made her mark and is spreading love and happiness. That Susan is getting that back in spades must make her Mother even more delighted! Susan deserves all of this, and so much more! What a dear, sweet, person she seems to be! I'm hooked, and I don't usually follow any particular singer or actor, ever!
Posted by joyceleo on June 25, 2009
PS I forgot to mention that Pebbles was getting her own version of a Canine Passport some time ago. Of course, the tabloids immediately attacked her for dragging her cat around all over the place. Someone even suggested that the ASPCA on her! As Einstein once said, "There are two things that are infinite: the universe itself and human stupidity--and I'm not sure about the former." Susan will soar far, far above all this and become an inspiration for mankind. She is indeed magic and real all at once! Astounding!

Despite the backing which is truly appalling, the vocal range and talent is unmistakable. As I have questioned myself, how her talent was not recognised at that time is almost beyond belief.
DJG Scotland - any chance of adding this to your video download list? That would be brilliant and add yet another track to the collection.
I have already got "The Way We Were" on mp3, but the video would be great, too??? Just asking!
Posted by greygrannie on June 25, 2009
@AmazinglyCritical Hi, don't know if you are still there. I commented on the word "thunder" in the previous blog and said, rather jokingly,that Susan might be trying to Americanize her pronunciations. However, after listening to the last couple of performances, I'm wondering if it is easier for her to sing "er" than "ah". I agree with you that the way she used to sing it is nicer.
Posted by Randma on June 25, 2009
Lonnirose, you have an amazingly fertile comedic mind!!! What fun to have you on this blog.

There really should be a way to compile both the imagined scenarios like yours and the real life ones like BJ's. What laughs we would all have on the days when Susan's tour is over and we wait for her CD...

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 11 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!

When Susan sang Memory in the show last night, she went seamlessly into what singers call, "the head voice" on the line, "and soon it will be morning"- when she first performed Memory, she did NOT go to her heard voice on the word "morning"-- She is perfect now, and there is no way she can top it. I do hope she takes a day off before the Saturday show, which I believe is in London again at the Apollo with 2 back to back shows.
Posted by DANNYG. on June 25, 2009
Guess the concert in Coventry is starting now. I see both Friday and Saturday there are two shows each day. Tonight will be her 5th since her last rest break. Look like she would skip Friday.

Posted by Carnegie61 on June 25, 2009
I agree DannyG. It would make perfect sense to take tomorrow off.

I dare anyone to call our dear Susan "frumpy" anymore. She now has a look that many women envy. She is sooo pretty!
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 25, 2009
Well, I reckon she should take a few days off in Prague. Oh, and she could just drop in and record a CD while she's in the area!

"Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009...
True fans, just don't ever post Susan's address, etc. or anything personal that you know about her. The last thing we want is for someone to send her unkind correspondence or even stalk her. Protecting our sweet girl is of utmost importance."

That makes sense, Lonnirose, but everyone in the world probably knows Susan's address anyway. With the phishing expeditions we have seen, I think it's just as important to warn unsuspecting members to be careful who they give their own addresses and information to.

terijay, please explain again the difference between "head voice" and the other. I spent 32 years as a special education teacher, so it takes a lot of 'splaining on some things for me to "get it."

I can't stop watching the Susan Boyle video.
It is totally outstanding

Posted by pickled tink on June 25, 2009
Many have commented on Susan losing weight - my other half - who is a medic- did wonder very early on if Susan had an undiagnosed under active thyroid- she was quite a slender young woman and as she got older showed some of the signs one might associate with an under active thyroid which is a very common problem which goes undiagnosed in a large number of women. If he was right and they have picked it up - Once treated it can lead to a return ones normal body weight - which for her was quite slender. This is speculative of course, and nothing more than that.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 25, 2009
@pickled tink - it could just be her good appetite! If you look at her eating the sandwhich in the audtion clip, it looks like she was going to take a bite of her fingers too! She's also been photographed with a full bar of chocolate in her hand too. I also noted a bag of sugar in her kitchen, so she has a sweet tooth.

Howdy all Susafans ! I need to go listen again now, any news on the new website yet?
Posted by mdillow31 on June 25, 2009

Everyone in the world knows Susan's address is Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland. I sent her a fan letter right after her audition on BGT and the post office said it would get to her and it must have as my return address was on it and I never got it back.

I'm glad I was a early bird on the fan letter before the world descended on her. :)

Hi Susan friends of the earth.

I have written poetry all my life about my life as I lived it, and anything else that inspires me. To have been inspired by Susan is an understatement. So here goes:

They say the 'big bang' theory

Is how this Universe got unfurled

But it was Susan really

Who brought her love to all the world!

Its so strange how her voice can stay in your head and of course, we must all know the words of Memory and IDAD by now. Just wish I could do Susan's voice justice by singing along with her, but she would probably fall about on the floor with uncontrollable giggling!
Posted by LucyB on June 25, 2009
I imagine Susan has had to be very careful with her monthly stipend and probably never felt she could spend money on fresh fruits and vegetable, but bought cheaper foods loaded with fats and carbohydrates. NOW with the world at her finger tips as well trained folks around her, she is probably getting a very balanced diet. AND she probably isn't spending any time in the kitchen, but is probably way toooo busy tending to all aspects of business. AND NOW she has set her mind to "following her yellow brick road" with a slimmer and, most likely, a much healthier body for new clothes to adorn.
Posted by Wild Ol' Dan on June 25, 2009

Posted by terijay on June 25, 2009
@lucyb- That exactly what I was thinking- they are all eating on the expense of BGT and most likely good proteins and leaner food which is more expensive than carbs-- plus all that running around, standing, rehearsing, etc burns up a lot more calories than sitting at home, and maybe she is conciously also trying to lose weight, also.
Posted by Kalua on June 25, 2009
Now there is a very clear pattern going on with the trashoides, if our Dear Susan takes a rest they go wild, but if she is performing they remain as mute as a galapagos's oyster.

So I think La divina Boyle is performing in Coventry where I've been 3 times, in the last 5 years. Nice place
Posted by natalie on June 25, 2009
If you are interested, I have written a short profile, nothing fancy, just some info to get to know me a wee bit, I just love this "wee" word, and also the SUSAWORD Corner and I feel 14 again, when I was a tiny little girl who, all excited about Julien Clerc singing here in Holland, wanted to climb on the stage and got thrown off right away LOL now I would not do this again when I see Susan I think ... but than again, who knows LOL
Posted by terijay on June 25, 2009
Randma- hard to explain- here is the definition of head voice from a dictionary:
Noun 1. head voice - the higher ranges of the voice in speaking or singing; the vibrations of sung notes are felt in the head
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Johnnycake, good thought! Actually I meant Susan's exact address which has always been removed when posted on here for her protection. I posted that after a troll invasion.

@LucyB, yes! Susan can now have anything she could ever want, and that makes me SOOOOOOOO happy.

I've been thinking about this and would just like to voice it. Some of the other big stars have welcomed Susan and I think that's really nice. Ms. Elaine Paige has been very lovely in complimenting our girl, as have Dolly Parton and the great Barbra Streisand. Barbra even called Susan when she was in the hospital and Dolly said she'd love to meet her. Countless others too. That is splended of them and makes me think more highly of them than I did before. Just a thought.

Hello fellow Susafans! Thanks to Paul and Tommy for this blog with the full Birmingham performance by Susan, probably her best yet!

No news yet on the Coventry show today, which started almost an hour ago (it's 8:20pm there now).

In case people missed it from earlier posts, here is an excellent video of the Aberdeen show (full performance):

Susan Boyle LIVE in Aberdeen Excellent quality

Also a couple of new videos of last night's Birmingham show. Very good quality video and audio, a little shaky, not as close up:

Posted by susanwin on June 25, 2009
Hello everybody,

What a magnificent performance! Our Susan is truly The Incomparable singer - she has an unlimited capacity for professional growth, and these two songs sounded even better, than before, if it is possible to more perfect, than already perfect, even more confident and relaxed, completely connected with the audience, than before!

She is one of the greatest singers of our time, and her art will have historical value - as a professional musician, who have heard many great singers, I am convinced of it!

The incomparable beauty and purity of Susan's soul is reflected in her singing, and is transmitted to us, listeners, so powerfully - to listen to Susan is to purify, beautify, esthetisize oneself - that is one of the reasons, that we love Susan so much - she gives us the possibility to lave ourselves in the sacred waters of her purity, kindness, humbleness, and incomparable beauty,uplifting our souls by her singing, making us feel nearer to God!

God Bless,

Love and all the best to all Susanfans,

susanwin

@Lonnirose..

Blackburn. West Lothian, Scotland is sufficient if you want to send a fan letter or card to Susan. Not her exact address but the post office told me it was sufficient when I sent a fan letter to Susan right after her 1st audition on BGT and bedfore I joined this fan club. Hope this helps. :)

Posted by Bobber2 on June 25, 2009
Wow !! When the tour started I questioned as the whether this tour would be good for Susan...Ive changed my opinion on that for like another poster has said it seems that Susan has really discovered that she is well loved in England in a massive way....her management team [Simon included] must be very pleased on how things are going with her to see her becoming happy again...I wish her all the best !
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@mdillow, thanks. I have sent her several cards and have another ready. After all, Superstars should get lots of fan mail, dontcha think?

Love having a video of both her songs together! She is SO amazing. Thanks to our wonderful folks who provide these videos - they are sensational.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 25, 2009
DJG, Yes, sorry about that! After I posted, I went back to your DVD list and I spotted them there. Downloaded them and they are working fine.
Thanks. We are certainly building up quite a collection, but I just hope that Susan is not overdoing it. I still worry about the strain that all these shows is having on her voice. She clearly loves to sing but I feel she may need a rest again. There are another two shows coming up In London and I think that she will want to sing there after the last reception that she received in the capital. Just my take on things. Of course, she knows what she is doing, "oor lassie," and I know that she wants to please all her fans. So, let's see if she sings tonight. I, too, would like her to go to Prague as soon as possible, but I think that she will probably now complete the tour, so it could be a good while before we see her in the studio, more's the pity.
Posted by pickled tink on June 25, 2009
I feel Susan is using the tour to learn a great deal, She is trying out subtle variations in each performance to see what works and is becoming more and more confident and relaxed as she goes along. It's been a steep learning curve, but she is a quick study.
Posted by Oggles on June 25, 2009
Hi again Susan family.

I have just watched last nights videos, obviously having watched ALL of Susan's videos.

Susan changes things from performance to performance. I think she is experimenting to find out the best combinations which to my mind means when she finally gets in the recording studios, she will amalgamate the better than best (if that's possible).

When Simon, Piers and Amanda shouted at Susan to come back on the stage in her audition (I seem to remember Piers shouting "oi"), and Ant and Dec oushing her back on, Simon had a job to remember her name! I bet he remembers it now - I bet they all do!

I hope this isn't duplication. Here's a site I found on twitter: http://indianasusanboylefan.blogspot.com/
Wonderful tribute to Tommy here, as well as a compelling beautiful story.

Lonnirose, terijay, you guys are too much. I hope Susan does put Piers on hold for 5 mins.,etc. ..loved the whole scenario. You realize they can never go on this dinner date now, the tabloid press coverage would be unbearable for both of them!
Posted by HereToday on June 25, 2009
Thanks for the info. re downloading youtube videos with real player. Wish I had known that before, some of the videos I really liked have been taken off e.g. one of Jane Vasey playing with the Downchild Blues Band in the 70s. She was a really great piano player who had passed on now. The youtube downloader thing wouldn't download onto my computer but realplayer works well. Thanks again
Posted by nibbana on June 25, 2009
Like others who have posted - I too think the tour has been a good thing for Susan. If nothing more than to gain experience and desensitize just a bit to the crowds and the press so that she is in a place that is more grounded and within her own natural sense of being.

She may also be varying each performance a little, just to keep it fresh so no one is a carbon copy of another.

Susan is awesome as we all know, her sense of humor is wonderful. The "I know Nothing" that she said after the semi final is from Fawlty Towers and her walk back in after she started to walk out after her audition has to be from Keeping Up Apperances (Mrs. Bucket). I love Susan and I love British comedy.

@Lonnierose: Hey neighbor in KY! I went through a time when I was nuts over Vera Lynn. I had been a fan as a young teenager, when I first heard her sing "When Swallows Say Goodbye" with the British troops, and "If You Love Me Really Love Me" and all the many other wonderful WWII songs. Then when I was surprised by her appearance on a WWII commemoration on TV in 1994 (Walter Kronkite was master of ceremonies), I really went "nuts" and bought everything I could find that she'd recorded. You wouldn't believe what I went through to order her autobiography from a little bookstore in London!! :-) Such fun. So I've been down this road before, and I believe it's worse this time. Can't stay away from Susan's videos, etc. Love that girl - love her voice - just like all the rest of you devoted fans!

Posted by Carol--Susan fan on June 25, 2009
The above video is great and Susan is fantastic again--maybe the best of so many geat performances. It appears to me she has her eyes closed part of the time especially during Memory. I remember in an interview after the BGT audition she said she had her eyes closed for part of it. Maybe this helps stay in the moment of the song, feel all the emotion of it and then convey that to us with her expressive singing. She keeps every performance fresh and new no matter how many times she sings these same two songs. An absolute amazing ability to keep us transfixed by her singing and we never tire of hearing it.
Posted by Bobber2 on June 25, 2009
I wonder if the automotive sector in the US can bring their sales out of a slump by promising a new "Susan" CD to be given with the sale of any new car....they should tell the people like it is that all cars have been known to function alot better with Susan singing inside them...the engines just purr with delight as it hears that lovely voice :-)

Hi, fellow Susa-fans!

I am babysitting at my daughter's house and took a few minutes to catch up on the comments here... When I clicked on the link above for another version of the Aberdeen concert, two things happened.

1) My little 2-yr-old grandson came RUNNING in from the back room, ran up to the computer and shouted, "I like that!"--motioning at Susan singing, and stood here entranced until the end of her song...

2) As the camera zoomed out taking in the whole room, I saw all this little lights and thought, " what, candles? what is that? And then I realized: hundreds of cell-phones being held to record the once-in-a-lifetime experience of hearing Susan Boyle in Live Concert!!!

Hi, I can see everything's fine in Susaland! Welcome to our Japanese friends! Wow! I never thought I would one day get an opportunity of getting in touch with Japanese citizens! Can you imagine that?

Zoey, I love that image of Susan as a blooming flower "everytime we see her, another petal has opened". How true!

WAMcKinley, Susan's voice can indeed be compared to the mesmerizing voice of sirens. I'm thinking of the new tone she's found on "be" and "seems" in her latest performances of IDAD: truely out of the world...Except that, contrary to sirens who lure sailors down to the bottom of the seas, Susan takes us up to Heaven!

Well, if I sum it up, so far, Susan has been compared to a flower (a rose more specifically), a siren, a butterfly...not bad for the so called "frumpy" "little lady" from Blackburn! Nobody can deny she now IS the wonderful LADY that had been hiding in her voice for so long! The geni is out of the bottle and there's no way we could put it back there! Susan enjoys the freedom of being herself at last. She is showing the world who she is and was during all those long years of neglect. Go get them, Susan!

Sorry to post a post a bit of a downer, but there is a story today on an X Factor incident this past Tuesday during their auditions (Simon Cowell is producer and judge, as he is on BGT). Here's an excerpt:

"A woman auditioning for The X Factor threatened to commit suicide after being told she had not made it through to the next round of the talent contest.

The drama happened on the second day of auditions at the Excel centre in London as she was interviewed minutes after getting the 'no' vote from all four judges. To add to the pressure, the rejection came before an audience of 2,000 now drafted in to watch the audition process.

Producers summoned an emergency doctor they have on standby as the woman, in her 50s, began sobbing and screaming."

Here's a link to the full story, published today:

@Frazier, you in Kentucky too? Where? Ah, the great Vera Lynn singing "If You Loved Me", and how about "Auf Weidersehn"? Never thought there would be anyone who could outdo her, but our Susan has done it! Loved listening to Vera, but never felt the emotional connection that I do with Susan, and Susan's voice is much more beautiful. Susan touches my very soul - just seeing her picture brings tears and her videos usually leave me sobbing.

@DocRobbie This story is sad and maybe the screening process should be worked on and some counseling done, but at some point we are all responsible for the situations we get ourselves into. Im hindsight I think Susan or Hollie would make the same choice. We all want a chance to grab that ring.

Do you think for those of us whose kids are concerned about us...they will let us choose our own nursing homes???
Posted by BoyleFan71 on June 25, 2009
SUSAN BOYLE INTERNATIONAL FAN CLUBS. After the BGT Tour is over, many of us are going to go into serious Susan Boyle withdrawal. Perhaps, we should write Max Clifford -- not to beat him about the head and shoulders (although he may deserve it) -- but to volunteer to staff Susan Boyle Fan Clubs in our respective countries. We could work from home in our spare time, responding to each fan letter with material (and postage!) supplied by Max. We'd come up with a list of volunteers, by country, here. Then, we'd ask Paul to send Max a letter (which one of us could write) proposing our plan and identifying the volunteers. What is there to lose? I bet it would ease Susan's mind to know that all the fan mail piling up in Blackburn from all over the world will be answered by somebody who cares. What do you all think?
Posted by TexGigi on June 25, 2009
Carnegie, I love your tune regarding the red button. We are creatures of habit. Loved clicking & seeing my home town on-line. Meme, You would think! The least they could do, let us choose our nursing home. We may have to start a new one for Susan fans only...Sounds like it could fill up fast.
Posted by greygrannie on June 25, 2009
Both of the above ideas sound great! Both would keep some of us pretty busy!!
Posted by ponylady on June 25, 2009
Glad I checked the fan comments on the video by Alliijuddsex. They sounded just like us (maybe some ARE us, just don't post here (yet) and it is evident that there are soooo many fans on numerous fan sites or on no fan site at all. Think of all those who don't even have a computer...how they will be so amazed when she hits television and radio. What a wonderful result for Susan after all her sadness. I believe her joy is increasing daily and I pray that she continues to thrive in every way.
Posted by Carnegie61 on June 25, 2009
Meme - As the daughter of a Susanut (hi Momma), I would let her choose her own nursing home. Loving Susan shows you have excellent tastes. So...I think the nursing home she would choose would be superb. And us kids really do want the best for our off-the-wall parents.

@Frazier- Yikes! You mean this is normal nutty obsessive behavior over Susan? Glad I missed it in my earlier years. If this goes on much longer they are going to find an island to send us all to - far away. Which would be ok if they have computers there and we could just sit all day and listen to Susan and read posts. Maybe she would even come visit us.

Posted by Fran M. on June 25, 2009
Do you notice when a news article refers to a "spokeswoman" for Susan that they no longer say the spokeswoman's name (Nicole ?? -- what is her name -- Phillips)? They just say "spokeswoman". I wonder if this is because they don't want her (Nicole) getting bombarded with e-mails from Susan's fans? And, my next question is -- is it Nicole ____ or is it Max Clifford? I hear Nicole ____ is no longer associated with Max Clifford, am I right on that?
Posted by BoyleFan71 on June 25, 2009
@Lonnirose - I'm retired and 71 with one foot in the grave, but I can still stuff envelopes and drive my little car to the post office to mail 'em. Can't afford the postage. Max will have to help with that...
Posted by Fran M. on June 25, 2009
There is an unpleasant association being made today if you Google Susan's name. Seems a contestant on X-Factor was threatening to commit suicide because she was voted off the show, and they are referencing Susan in connection with this. This I don't like. Susan has nothing at all to do with this and her name should not be thrown into this scenario at all.

Posted by fumingjane on June 25, 2009
FYI, I called Amazon today to inquire how many "notifications" they had received for the release of Susan's CD. Sad to report only 1,567, but that is US only. Not to worry, I understand from a fan on YT that Walgreens preordered some preposterous number.

If you have an Amazon account (which is free), go ask to be notified when her CD is available. If you don't have an Amazon account.....go get one! All that is required is a cc number and an email address.

Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Fran, her name is Nicola Phillips. One of our members tried to e-mail her at Max Clifford's office and they said she no longer worked there. ?? Perhaps she only works for Susan via Simon at this point? If so, she's been doing a poor job up till now - probably why she's not using her name, just "spokesperson".

Question to all of you who are in the entertainment field: Is a publicist and a press agent the same thing?

@BoyleFan71, well I'm 62, but I think my kids are planning ahead. LO
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 25, 2009
@Carnegie61; Just saw Paul's post, breathing easier now ;>)

With all the dontations made so far to keep Susan-Boyle.com going a subscription is in order to make all those extra neat map location features available so can zero in on where "us" folks are located 'round the globe - or maybe not. If ya'll are concerned about maintaining "privacy" on-line (which I think is impossible) this IS an issue but THIS "inquiring mind" wants to know WHERE those 2 to 21 folks routinely logged on Susan-Boyle.com from that "unknown location" off the west coast of Africa are REALLY from; I think its a U.S. et.al. military facility.

Susahelen - well, I tried to talk them into sharing..... just kidding! You are right on both accounts! But God had a special plan for Tommy, and part of that plan was to share himself with many, many wonderful people. He was just too terrific to settle down to one. Tommy has had a life of witnessing and ministry that he could not have had otherwise. God plucked him out of the waters of Viet Nam to return him to the USA where his mission in life would be accomplished. Thanks to all of you for being a part of that work.

Lonnirose and BoyleFan71: So, we really don't know if Susan's publicist is Max Clifford or Nicola Phillips, am I right or wrong? Nicola is no longer connected with Max, and I notice they always seem to refer to a "spokesWOMAN" as opposed to "spokesPERSON". Just trying to get this straight in my head.
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 25, 2009
@fumingjane; re. just 1,567 Amazon "notifications" on Susan Boyle CD; That's incredible! I'd placed mine around April 20th, full month before I'd signed up here! Also saw on blog post here many days ago about Wal-Mart having 1,000,000 or so preorders, true or not I just don't know! In any event, orders WILL come flooding in once its confirmed that Susan WILL be recording a CD and a definate date is set for its release; have always contended that it will sell 10,000,000 copies within three to six months and go "Diamond" according to RIAA Certification.

Don't forget folks, we live in a modern world where downloads are easier and cheaper than CDs. Folks, including myself, will be looking to get the download version when it comes out. I wouldn't be able to easily buy the CD even if I wanted to, so it will have to be download. I'm not sure I've even got a CD player anymore! All I use is a 40Gb mp3 player with a set of amplified speakers and my entire music collection is available at the press of a button!

Hi: Just heard on the radio 5:30p.m. EST, that Michael Jackson was rushed to hospital, and the report said (??!!) that he was in cardiac arrest. No other details were given at this time.

BoyleFan71. Great idea, I would be up for that!!! Count me in.

Does anyone know if there has been a compilation of the various videos to archive for Susan's own pleasure. I wish we knew if she sees any of these wonderful tributes to her. It would make her feel so special, which we know she is. Of course she would need a few months doing nothing but viewing them!LOL

I too would like to welcome our new "family" members from around the world. It is lovely to meet pple with so many different backgrounds and languages. That is SueWorld. Back later...got those critter to feed.

@FlatBroke, regarding the Walmart purchase of 1,000,000 of Susan's CD: Some time ago one of our members told us that his friend works at Walmart in purchasing and that it was true.

That is an audio only on the link from Coventry about Miss Boyle- she sounds tired- I can always tell when she is tired, when she sings Memory- she sings softer and not as powerful at the beginning- I hope the darling girl gets a day off tomorrow!!!

@terijay: I agree with you imo Susan sounds wiped out. I give her so much credit. There are people who stand there and watch the game and those who pick up the bat and keep swinging until they get put in the game. She knew enough to know she needed an assist from the Priory (who wouldn't?) and it seems as though she and they have tweaked her back to her old self--I feel like so much of the anxiety she had is gone and seemed to enjoying her last week of touring.

A year older than I--I listened to this so much I wore out the record ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSqo17o2a1w

RIP Michael
Posted by A.Olive on June 25, 2009
I thought you SUSANFANS would like to know that Elaine Paige has asked to speak to Susan privately regarding her talents and the road she is entering and how to handle the tabloids. NO ONE on Susan's team have allowed this to happen as of yet. I am glad Elaine has reached out to Susan. I hope Susan knows this and pitches a royal fit to make this meeting happen. Elaine says she has offered this repeatedly but to no avail.

Wow Michael Jackson= someone said he was sick not to long ago. What a shame. I am shocked!

I am sad about Farrah too. I thought that documentary to her struggles to deal with the caner were heart wrenching, but very well done. Loved seeing all the sculpture she has done in her home. A very talented Lady for sure, not just in acting, loving but in other areas of art too. Wow How sad. Say prayers and send good thoughts to HER FATHER, Ryan, Her Son and Her closest friends.

I love you guys, at least those of you who are mature and fair-minded, but I can't post under these castrated conditions. I am a free spirit, and I love democracy too much.

Posted by SandiUS on June 25, 2009
The MEANING of the song Memory:
After listening to Susan's haunting rendition of Memory, I set out to find out what the words to the song actually meant. Finally, I found a site with reviewes of the play that helped explain it:
The song is sung from the perspective of a cat named Grizabella, a member of a cat community living in a junkyard. Grizabella was a former Glamour cat, and most of the cats were jealous of her beauty. As she aged the cats that were jealous took sadistic pleasure in her faded beauty. She was shunned by all but three young cats, and a senior cat, Old Deuterotomy. She sings about her memory of better times, and to remind us of the importance of memory through time.

Because of the cruelty Grizabella has endured by the bully cats, she is chosen by Old Deuterotomy to be reborn. As the song ends with the new dawn; a new day beginning, her dreams of acceptance and love come true. She turns her face to the sun as she is given new acceptance by all of the cats, and becomes loved again.

It gives me goosebumps that Susan chose this song. It contains so many parallels to Susan's life (being shunned and bullied for being different, only to come in to her own and be loved by all). Any of you who can contribute to, or refine this interpretation of the meaning behind the song Memory, please do so.

To me personally, it's so profound to compare how close the transformation in the song is with our beloved Susan's own journey. Like the theme "the meek shall inherit the earth." Being shunned and then to finally have acceptance and be reborn.
Posted by Wild Ol' Dan on June 25, 2009
Howdy Pards,

Over the years we have lost a good many wonderful entertainers, and perhaps we did not fully realize how lucky we were that they were around until they were gone.

Dean Martin comes to mind, George Burns, Johnny Carson,
Judy Garland, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and so many others.

In the last couple days three entertainers have left us. Ed McMahon's laughter could be heard in the vast majority of homes in America for decades. Michael Jackson
from the time he was a small boy entertained millions. And
Actress Fara Fawcett brought a rare beauty and talent to the roles she played over the years.

Off topic? Maybe. But I think there are lessons to be
learned here. There is good reason to treasure Susan Boyle's magnificent talent...to celebrate everything about
her...to cherish those magic moments with her... past, present, and future. She has brought a gift to all the
world...a rare and beautiful gift.

Millions have viewed her performances...and treasure the way she has touched our hearts. Some people bring a
special kinda magic into the world. Susan is one of those
people.

So, as we remember those wonderful entertainers of the
past...let us resolve to treasure our Susan even more in the days, months, and years ahead. She continues to lift
us up...and has brought a wonderful joy and happiness into
our lives. God Bless her...and God Bless all who have touched our hearts with magic, and joy, and happiness over
the years...

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

Wild Ol' Dan

Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 25, 2009
I think we should pay tribute of some sort in here to Michael Jackson. He was a music legend and paved the way for many other musicians. All the talent shows such as American Idol, X Factor, AGT, BGT, they all are in search of something they wish could resemble the dynasty of Michael Jackson. BGT got lucky, they found someone who will most likely become another huge dynasty.

Yup. I could go on about it, but I already have, since the semifinal. It's gut-wrenching. So powerful that Eliot didn't include it with the rest of the children's cat poems.
Posted by mclim on June 25, 2009
Darcey Kerr go up just a few comments above yours and read what "Wild ol Dan' just wrote. Hopefully us being great fans of Susan's has not taken away our compassion for others. That would not be a good thing.
Posted by judyokla on June 25, 2009
Did any of you notice on Susan's video from last night that she seemed to have her hand pressing on her diaphragm much more than usual. I was a little worried that maybe she was tired. Hope not. If all the positive feelings flowing her way could help her, she would be able to fly to the moon. Such a sweet, wonderful treasure she is.
Posted by bernicer on June 25, 2009
@SandyUS I think Susan does relate heart and soul, to the songs her sings. That is part of what makes her so special
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 25, 2009
judyokla, Susan may be just pushing through since the end of the tour is in sight. If she can, she'll put the media rumors of her "frailty" to rest. I almost hope she can do it, if her health/voice is not at risk.
Posted by ArielAZ on June 25, 2009
Beth--Thanks, but I've seen nothing unusual. I suspect this is some kind of nonsense from those who went after aroseblush and then complained to Paul. I hope not for the sake of the integrity of this site, but I don't know.
Posted by aroseblush on June 25, 2009
I met Michael Jackson in Hollywood under professionsl circumstances in the mid 80's. Despite his unususl lifestyle, he was very gracious to me. I loved his music and I liked him.

@ArielAZ. Please rethink your decision.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 25, 2009
I haven't heard anything from Coventry, but, I do think that it's time for Susan to take another break before the two shows in London at the weekend.
If she, indeed, sounded tired, I am not surprised. It does take a lot out of you.
On another topic, the BBC has confirmed Michael Jackson's death. He was a true genius who thrilled the world of music for over 30 years. His like will never be seen again. "Thriller" is still the benchmark album, in my opinion. 51m albums sold! Pure rock perfection. RIP, Michael.

pretty@55, your profile brought me to tears. we have all had some hard life lessons to learn, and how fortunate are you and am I to have had such wonderful mothers. I didn't appreciate mine either until I grew up. Then we became the best of friends, and how I treasure her memory and the things she taught me. Thank you for your beautiful testimony, and may you and your husband have a very long, happy life!
Posted by ponylady on June 25, 2009
@Darcey Kerr - Everything her IS about Susan. We are here because of her and she brings out all things musical in us, which includes some discussion of other entertainers. We'll never agree on which are worthy or unworthy, and while there is no sense in comparing singers, it is a common passion with most of us and good conversation while waiting for the next huge "wowing of the crowds" from our Scottish wonder.
Posted by SandiUS on June 25, 2009
@johnnycake
Thank you for the feedback, I'll have to search for your other comments. It was sooooo difficult for me to understand the song at first, because I had never seen the play, and didn't even know it was being sung from a cat's perspective. In my research, it's exactly as you say, the poem was considered by Eliot to be too harsh to include, as (reportedly) the poem was originally written for his young god-daughter. Apparently that's why it went unpublished. You're good at "getting it." :-)

Ariel, you wouldn't know about it until the hackers accomplished their goal. One of my websites was hacked 3 years ago, and I had no reason to think there was a problem beforehand. The website's ISP can tell, though, if they have the "alarms" set up to recognize hacking attempts. My website's ISP nw has software to warn of hacking attempts, but they don't notify me when the attempts are occurring.

Thanks, Lonnirose and fumingjane. I'm sticking around as long as someone wants to talk about Susan. Geez, Wild Ol' Dan, you made my eyes leak. That was nice. I think Susan picks all of her music because it means something special to her. They said it was going to be hard for her to pick her favorite 10. Wonder what all they did in the recording studio last Wed.
Posted by Carol--Susan fan on June 25, 2009
SandyUS--I was glad to read your description of the story behind the Memory song. I had read on here before that it was about an older cat. Thank you for more details. It also gives me chills to think of the similarity to Susan's life. The song and Susan's singing of it now will mean even more every time I hear it. I have already been having chills down my spine every time she sings the high notes, touch me. Now I will have even more. It's almost like this play was written about Susan's life.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 25, 2009
@Johnnycake, that's heaartwrenching - more tears when I think of what Susan has been through. I think both songs have some special meaning for her. That's why I am so happy for her now and glad she is the Superstar she so richly deserves to be. I hope all sadness is behind her now and only happiness awaits. Every time I say a prayer for her I always ask that she be well and happy and achieve her dream.

@ teesiel & terijay.. I agree, I thought she sounded tired too. I bet she is reluctant to take rest days as she's really seeming to enjoy herself the past seval performances. Sort of a double edged sword. I hope it's not the fear of bad press that's making her push herself too hard. Any merit to the Elaine Paige offer to meet with Susan??? I forget who posted it.

@Carol--Susan fan
Thank YOU. I appreciate the recognition. It took me so much in-depth time and research to find out what the words were really about.

There's something poetic about it, given Susan's love for her cat Pebbles. It could be possible that Susan's choice of the song Memory, whether purposeful or not, has become a tribute to cats! That really gives me chills.

Michael Jackson was blessed with great talent. I could name so many more, but we all have our demons to battle. One has to get their strength from the right place. We all have to find that place. Susan is very grounded and has a lot of commom sense. I pray for her continued strength and happiness.

@judyokla, Wild Ole Dan is always the voice of reason here. This is a good place to be and to vocalize your love of Susan - we talk about her incessantly. Of course none of us gets anything else done, you understand. My house is hairing over, yard is a jungle, dog's hungry, but we just keep talking about our sweet Scottish lady.

Really, she was perfection, but no diaphram touching, watch the first video above.
Posted by Carol--Susan fan on June 25, 2009
SandyUS--Thank you so much for all the research you did. I'm a devoted cat lover myself. And understand perfectly how Susan misses Pebbles so much when she's away from her. I like your idea of Memory being a tribute to cats. Susan living her dream is so much deserved after what she has endured in life.

judyokla and Lonnirose, thanks for your replies to my question about who is her publicist. judyokla, if it is Nicola Phillips, it seems like she does not want her name used anymore, just "spokeswoman". Lonnirose, yes, there are so many references still to Max Clifford, and Nicola is no longer with him, so seems there is still some confusion as to who it really is. It will come out soon, I'm sure. Thanks again to both of you.

@SandyUS.. Wonderful post about Memory...really enjoyed it.
But Susan wanted to do a trilogy of I Dreamed a Dream, Whistle Down the Wind and Somewhere from WS Story.
The first representing her life, the 2nd her ill parents and the third her mom passing on and she finding a place for herself somewhere.....Her brother Gerry said it on one of Billy's shows.
BGT made her do Memory~she didn't want to~ I loooove Susan Boyle's beautiful voice but am sooooo ready to hear new songs :-)

I saw Cats in person many years ago when it toured the U.S. The singer who played Grizabella was magnificent and I cried then, right there in the theater. I have always loved Memories ever since.

I thought when Susan chose to sing it that it expressed her heart's hope, and now it expresses her hope fulfilled. Oh, no, I'm tearing up again. Can't help it.
