Thanks for the new blog and the videos. These are superb.

With all the talk of "trolls" last night it may be worth re setting your password if you have exchanged email adresses with people you don't know and have a password that is easy to guess.

What a treat to see Susan singing upclose .I really enjoyed these performances ,especially the Memory one ,the way she sang it and also the way she was so responsive to the audience .This is up close and personal.
Very touching. From the way she responds to the audience and is so generous in her acknowledgement of their cheers
we can see what a loving person Susan is,a dear heart.
Posted by mdillow31 on June 24, 2009
Glad to see a new video of Susan up close. It has been awhile since we have been there as most videos have been at a distance. Kudos to Susan !! :)

@Kalua ,what do you mean first video,are there 2 video's
Posted by DANNYG. on June 24, 2009
I just posted on the old blog this morning (Wed) about the Tommy situation. I would appreciate if you all will go back and read it as I want my thoughts to be known on this appalling situation.

Could someone tell me how to access a video where the screen remains black and the white circle continues to turn and nothing comes up. Thank you.

Teesiel-My turn to thank you for all your contributions. You lucky duck-actually being that close to our girl! Thanks again.
Posted by Kalua on June 24, 2009
@patriciasart - I'm on that page and I see 3 videos, the 2 performaces and the airport :-)
Posted by rf on June 24, 2009
Susan, thanks so much for another stunning performance!!!
Posted by Kalua on June 24, 2009
@DANNYG. - Paul is aware of the situation and I'm sure he will pass the vacum cleaner asap and leave it all tidy.
Posted by Meggsy on June 24, 2009
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE VIDEOS!!! How Susan interacts with the crowd is just wonderful. Her arm gestures and kisses, Susan's way of acknowledging and thanking "HER" people. She knows they love her.

And on another note, have you noticed how there is nothing written in the press about her? The media have nothing to say anymore, they've given up!! They can't stand the flak they have been receiving lately from her fans. Our emails seems to have worked. SUSAN HAS MADE IT.... and the tabloids know she has. Even people who once were not that keen, having heard her sing in public are now bowled over by her. There will NEVER BE another Susan. I love her to bits.
Posted by mclim on June 24, 2009
These are fantastic video's. I think Memory is the best yet. Love the crowds reaction. Susan, you get better and better and I don't even know how that's possible but you do. Love you!
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
@Kalua. Oh ,okay,I misunderstood your wording. I thought you meant there were 2 airport videos, but now I see you meant the first video on the page. But what point does it prove?
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
I still don't think thats Susan. Maybe they want us to believe its Susan. But Susan doesn't have a thick head of hair,that straight and that dark. Also the way she walked and her whole body language is different.BGT seems to want to hide Susan away from her fans. Maybe they want to build anticipation ( remember that song) .
Posted by Cee on June 24, 2009
Also- is the picture on the videos appearing"jerky" to anyone else? The audio is perfect.

On which video is Susan blowing kisses to someone on her right? I forget.

Someone please help me with the aforementoned video problem.

What does "imbed this video" mean?

Trying to get all my questions in at the same time.

Thanks,my dear sweet friends.
Posted by Kalua on June 24, 2009
@patriciasart - It was meant as a joke, as the video is stopped at that point I supposed the jurnalist was confirming that the lady in whithe was Susan. However I repeat it was meant as a joke after yesterday's afternoon chat we had about it. :-)

P.S. Sorry about my bad english, it's only my third language and sometimes I don't express myself clearly.
Posted by mclim on June 24, 2009
I have to say something about Susan. Last night my son, DIL, and two of my grand children (age 19 and age 11) and myself, sat and talked about Susan for probably at least 30 minutes. It was the first time in our whole lives that all of us agree on a singer. We ALL love her and think she is the best. It takes some pretty amazing talent to grab people across 3 generations and capture them. No other artist could ever do such a thing.
Posted by Meggsy on June 24, 2009
@CEE: I think the video you are talking about where Susan is blowing kisses to someone on her right is from Wembley.... but I cannot remember for sure if it was the matinee performance or the evening.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
@Kalua .Oh I thought you had some inside information on it,LOL! Maybe more video . I'm always looking for new tibits of information about Susan these days. It seems BGT has her under house arrest. There seems to be a blackout when it comes to info about Susan except for tabloid lies. What a crazy M.O. BGT has. I guess it serves their agenda.
Posted by Cee on June 24, 2009
OK-another question re videos. Is it to be expected that the audio part finishes before the video? I'm saying-the words don't match the actions, It's not in sync.

OK-I'm done. I guess.
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 24, 2009
Want to thank Teesiel for the wonderful videos!!
Question for DJG-Scotland: Help! I have a MAC and downloaded the 81Mb video from the site you included, and it is called BOYLE9 on my computer. What do I do next to turn it in to a video so I can save it to a DVD? Many thanks for any help!
Posted by Kalua on June 24, 2009
@patriciasart - A few more days to go and then our dear Susan will do as she pleases.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 24, 2009
Once again, grateful thanks to Paul, and to Teesiel for the fabulous video. Having viewed both renditions again, I humbly revise my earlier assessment of Susan's singing of IDAD. It was truly brilliant and so was "Memory".
Talking of memory, I think that I must be losing mine - I plumb forgot that there is a Cathoilc Secondary school right in the heart of Blackburn - St. Kentigern's - and that must have been the school that Susan attended.
I do so hate mysteries, don't you? Btw, has anyone found out the identity of who Susan was blowing kisses to the other night? Just asking, don't groan! I don't want to start another lot of speculation. It's just that with all these posts, I might have missed something.
Cheerio for now.

Call me "Fed-up-with-Piers", here is url for his article and my reply. http://www.unrealitytv.co.uk/britains-got-talent/piers-morgan-says-that-americans-want-to-beat-susan-boyle/comment-page-1/#comment-292913

Piers, speak for yourself please. Americans feel that Susan Boyle is a rare bird. And when we are looking for our own successes, it is not to equal or replace someone else, especially not someone who is irreplaceable. I just don’t think you get either point. You are trading on her popularity, and in a tone that is essentially derogatory. BGT and now AGT are out to further your shows by trying to trade on this rare event whilst denying that she what is truly rare. Susan has proved everything she needs to prove. If you put her up in competition again, you are going to incur some great displeasure multiplied by probably millions of times. It is time for you to accept what all of us have, that Ms. Boyle is no longer someone to beat, she has won for life. Now it is time for her to shake this dust off her feet and go on with what her natural talent calls for. I want to see her with the likes of Andrea Bocelli, and perhaps with a t.v. special of her own. I’d like to see her do a concert with sax Julian, too. Americans will win without having to beat out someone. Get used to it.

On another note, maybe Susan was flown on a private jet or a different flight, or maybe she stayed on board until the cameras were off. Re these videos, she is blowing at least 3 kisses in Aberdeen, isn't she, besides the acknowledgements and smiles? There must a been a bunch of family and friends in the front rows. She looks so happy. Isn't it sweet to have these close-ups? The crowd sounded ecstatic. That would have been a choice concert to attend.
Posted by Kalua on June 24, 2009
@VickyOREGON - DJ_Scotland will come at one moment and explain it all to you. He is our DVD expert. :-)
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
@Kalua, Yes,I guess we can say soon she'll be freed from
SING SING!
Posted by soimpressed on June 24, 2009
Gosh, just watched the Aberdeen videos above. FANTASTIC!! I 'm so happy for Susan. she must have just known all these years that somehow this is what she should be doing at some time of her life . What must it feel like for her to be standing there now? SHE'S SO LOVELY!!
Posted by VickyOREGON on June 24, 2009
Oh, forgot to ask - - does anyone know her schedule for the next few days?
Have a hard time waiting to find out where and how she is each day. :)

Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
@VickyOregon - the filename of the ISO file is SUSANDVD9.ISO, but the DVD label is indeed BOYLE9 (that's more of an internal technical name for the disc itself). I don't have a Mac, because I have a proper computer rather than a toy (!!!), so I don't know what DVD burning software is available for it. You need something that can take an ISO file (disc image) and create a DVD from it. On the PC (a proper computer!), there are loads of options including some free software.
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
@Joly .Thanx for telling me about the article. I posted a reply too:

Good grief why didn't you do this to Paul Potts?You just let him go his merry way. But poor Susan continues to get trashed in the news because of BGT. The only way she will get positive press is to get out on her own. Just because Susan is so popular your going to keep trying to use her for competition which means she'll still be canon fodder for the tabloids. Set Susan free. You've ridden on her back long enough. Its time for Susan to move on .Susan is a superstar now. She has a worldwide fan base. BGT,AGT and the X-Factor are small potatoes now. I hope Susan breaks free from the parasite circus called BGT .
Posted by Joly on June 24, 2009
Yay. Good work! I saw it and thought it must be you. I'm going to keep clicking on the article so it comes up in google, and then people will see our comments ! Piers, don't make us mad, we're smart!

Great performance last night!

There were a couple of videos on site last night that were being pecked to death by a troll - I note that this morning, the videos are gone. Seems to me it's the troll that should be gone, not the videos (maybe he's gone too - ) Not sure were should allow ourselves to be bullied by trolls. Just sayin' . . . .

Agree with you @Joly!! Yes, God, please protect Susan from the tigers! And THANK YOU Lord for answered prayer re. the Aberdeen performance. I pray that you will continue to protect Susan. I ask for angelic protection and help. Please give her wisdom and discernment and favour even from those who seek to use her for their own gain. And may every difficulty, every bad press release, every opportunistic attachment by any leech, please turn all of these around for her good and Your glory. For in You, nothing Lord is impossible for those who believe!! Somebody in this site, PLS. post today's sked so I can pray more specifically today. Thanks!

Posted by PWattis on June 24, 2009
Thank you very much for the close up videos. To me these were beautifully understated performances. I still think its disrespectful to yell at someone while they are in the midst of giving this type of performance. I also still hate the name SuBo. Susan handled it wonderfully though. I hope she enjoyed herself.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
I noticed on the close up video (which I'm currently converting into the DVD!), that she didn't seem to mind being called 'SuBo'. She seemed to think it was quite funny, and responded to it!
Posted by DANNYG. on June 24, 2009
patriciasart, amen and amen. Sometimes you get tempted to go over and break Susan out of Sing Sin, don't you. I know I wish I could.

Susan has now sung three times since her break. The stop today is in Birmingham where she has already performed on this tour. Seems a perfect time for another break.

I can't even think of Piers without gagging.

Danny

@DJG-Scotland - Yes, I had noticed the same thing, and she seemed to like it!

What is going on now?

Posted by Meme on June 24, 2009
Teesiel..thanks so much for the wonderful close-up video.
How did you do that?? You weren't there were you, or did I miss something?
I was thinking yesterday, before the videos were posted, that the amazing fan response at these performances must be so "uplifting" (for lack of a better word) for Susan.
I believe she is finally realizing how much she is loved.
I feel I'm seeing more and more of the "old Susan"..her almost playful interaction with the audience, more relaxed presence, etc. Way to go Susan!
Posted by Fran M. on June 24, 2009
I am just a little confused re the two Aberdeen close-up videos that are posted on the website today -- the ones just before this blog starts. It says it is uploaded by Tessiel, but I thought Tessiel went to the earlier concerts? Was she also at the Aberdeen concert last night? Maybe Tessiel (or someonecan clear this up for me? Thanks so much!
Posted by donnola petrilli on June 24, 2009
@Patriciasart: Ditto! Typical Piers - that "Americans want to beat the Brits" mentality is his alone. I agree -he will continue to hype Susan every chance he gets simply to up the viewership and ratings of AGT. In the end, I believe he's going to be none too happy with the figures.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
There's no suggestion that Teesiel recorded the videos in Aberdeen last night! Uploading a video clip isn't the same as actually recording it! The two clips are hosted on YouTube and just embedded onto here.
Posted by fossilbarb on June 24, 2009
Wow! Thanks,Teesiel
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 24, 2009
To DJG-Scotland. Cheeky- your comments about Macs! I have been a Mac fan all my computer-adult life and they are so much more user-friendly than PC's and an awful lot safer, too. However, each to their own. No hard feelings.
As far as DVD burning software is concerned, I always use Handbrake - you can pick it up from the net - just Google "Handbrake", Vicky, and follow the instructions. I have copied a number of videos onto my two Ipods using that software and it works a treat.
PS Personally, I hate people referring to Susan as SuBo - it is one of these
nicknames, coined by the media, that, to me, smacks of being insulting and demeaning and must remind her of the days when she was cat-called and bullied in her home town. Of course, she will respond graciously - I don't think that Susan is capable of responding in any other manner, despite press reports to the contrary. Don't like it, though, and I wish people would refrain from using it! Just my opinion.
Posted by bluewren on June 24, 2009
good one that video is great she looks as if she is very capable of handling the corwn and interacts with them too,she looks much happier in the second video.

Posted by CanadianBill on June 24, 2009
Like it or not, the term 'SuBo' as screamed out by the young fans is most definitely used with love and Susan obviously gets that. She was brilliant once again.

DJG Scotland: Thank you for your explaining that Tessiel simply uploaded the videos captured from YouTube re Aberdeen. If she hadn't just been to the earlier Scotland shows, I wouldn't have thought anything of it and wouldn't have gotten confused. Thanks again, and thank you, Tessiel!

Great performance as usual but to me something doesn't seem right.
Is Susan alright or she just tried of the same old songs and dress
Posted by Marie-Fan Forever Canada on June 24, 2009
Well !!! I heard it, I heard it !!!! there were some french-speaking fans in Aberdeen...you hear them scream "C'est Beau ! ", "C'est beau Susan! "
"T'es belle Susan ! ", "T'es belle !" "Bravo Susan!"
( meaning you'are really beautiful !!!)...
way to go fans...no less for our Susan !!!!!!
Posted by Allikat on June 24, 2009
These are both absolutely gorgeous! Susan appears to get just a bit tickled during Memory--it's a wonder she can keep a straight face or go on singing, what with all the 'Sus-ans!' and 'you go Su-Bos!' being thrown at her. One hopes that eventually people WILL learn to behave themselves while she is singing, at least!

I am overcome with these Aberdeen videos. Teeisel, we are in your debt. Seeing her acknowledging the crowd's adulation just fills my heart. She can never doubt how much she is loved and admired and that is what I have wanted for her above all else. She said she wanted to sing and make people happy, and she can see that she is doing that and it is wonderful to see her basking in it.

Thank you Paul for a new post - and another chance for me et.al. to make sure proper measures are taken to "minimize disruptions."

As I'd mentioned in the last blog post ALL of us should word search each blog we've left posts on and read contents to be sure they indeed are ours as well as match handles to Avatars. Those not having Avatars (those pictures in squares next to posts) should put one up and periodically change them as an extra security measure.

We'll never be able to completely eradicate Trolls but we can control their presence. Also, be reminded that instant Susan comes out with a new song release and/or CD Trolling will kick up dramatically so lets keep vigilant!

As I drag myself out of bed to aother blistering day in Illinois I stagger over to the computer and WOW...everything is wonderful. The Susaeffect...beats caffeine by a long shot. Memory was just a joy to watch as she thoroughly enjoyed and rewarded her audience. Her dramatic handling of IDAD was amazing, although I can hardly wait for her to do happier songs...lots of them! Need the twinkle that is purely Susan.
Posted by LucyB on June 24, 2009
Just watched both of the Aberdeen videos, first in the smaller screen and then I hit the little red button at the bottom of the scree and I get it in the FULL SCREEN version with Susan filling my whole computer screen. Susan is beyond SPECTACULAR, in her singing, her appearance, her stage presence, her everything. She is the ultimate PROFESSIONAL. She has come an incredibly LONG WAY since April 11. Where is Andrew Lloyd Webber, surely he must be busy composing just the "Song for Susan". If I didn't know better, I would have thought that was a performance in one of the finest theaters in London's West End rather than the very finest segment from a British amateur talent show.

And then I am totally amazed by the number of folks involved in allowing all us fans to enjoy this phenomenon known as Susan Boyle, on our computers, sitting in the comfort of our own homes all over the world.....the lucky ducky who is live in the audience with hand held recording device, who goes home after the performance and uploads to UTube, all the electronic wizards who are also Susa-fans who eagerly await the Utube clip to appear, and then they "catch-it" (whatever that means), and submit it to this fine fan site, and then Paul, our over-worked and excellent administrator who then puts the videos up on this site for as all to enjoy. A huge and sincere THANK-YOU seems a bit meager for all the pleasure their efforts provide for sooooo many folks, but that's all I can offer. AGAIN, THANK-YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS!!!!!

@CEE; If you're on a "shaky" dial-up Internet connection like me open up just the page with the video you want to see on your web browser, wait for it to completely download; don't have any other pages open, give the connection signal the "cleanest pipe" possible.

The video of Susan "blowing kisses" is her Wembley "Memory" performance i.e. the last blog post.

"Imbed video" is option for you to imbed HTML code on whatever web page you have of your own creation, if you're not writing any then ignore this.

Hope this helps :>)

Wanna hear my own 'rant' regarding that Piers Morgan article? I don't do a lot of this any more but this time, I couldn't resist. Here's that URL to the thing again:

http://www.unrealitytv.co.uk/britains-got-talent/piers-morgan-says-that-americans-want-to-beat-susan-boyle/comment-page-1/#comment-292913

"Please–-let America’s Got Talent be its own (little) show, with its own talent, and have nothing whatsoever to do with Susan Boyle. She is no one needing to be ‘beaten’ by anybody here in the US anyhow. You do an injustice to this lovely, talented, one-of-a-kind woman by suggesting any other country should ‘find its own Susan Boyle’ or ‘beat Susan Boyle’ when you jolly well know each and every human being becoming a part of any of these talent shows is an individual and deserves to be treated as such, not compared with truly exceptional contestants from earlier such shows. The media rhetoric surrounding Susan is nothing short of ridiculous; I also find it ludicrous that folks from Britain’s Got Talent actually expect Susan to ‘appear’ on AGT or on the X Factor! Cripes, hasn’t the woman done enough for you yet to ‘earn her stripes’? Once the BGT tour is over with, can’t that be ‘it’? What will it take for Susan Boyle to finally be set free to pursue her real career? We here in the US hate to see her continue to be ‘used and abused’ in any way whatsoever. If you cannot stop the tabloid nonsense against her, perhaps you can at least refrain from any suggestion that ‘Americans want to beat Susan Boyle’. As an American, I find even that relatively simple phrase to be entirely offensive."

Talent show stars wow Granite City audience
west lothian singer susan boyle has 4,000-plus fans on their feet, cheering wildly

HIGH-FLYING: Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity perform at the AECC Press and Journal arena in Aberdeen. Colin Rennie
More Pictures

THE stars of the Britain’s Got Talent show delighted a capacity audience at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre last night on the latest stage of their nationwide live tour.

Series winners Diversity were among the first acts to take to the stage at the venue’s Press and Journal arena, but the biggest cheers were reserved for runner-up Susan Boyle.

The Scottish singing sensation, who became an international star after appearing on the ITV talent contest, has missed a number of dates on the tour and there were fears she might not take part in last night’s sold-out concert.

Most of the performers arrived by bus and were chatting to a group of about 20 fans at the side entrance when Miss Boyle arrived in a silver Mercedes around 6pm. She gave a quick wave to the autograph-hunters before being taken inside.

There was rapturous applause when she took to the stage at around 9pm, and her performances of Memories and I Dreamed A Dream had the 4,000-plus fans on their feet and cheering wildly.

The West Lothian singer went from living alone with her cat to being feted by the likes of Gordon Brown and Demi Moore after she first appeared on the talent show.

Her performances attracted millions of hits on video-sharing websites and led to an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Following her surprise defeat by dance troupe Diversity she was taken to the Priory clinic in London, suffering from exhaustion.

It's clear now that this BGT tour should be renamed 'The Susan Boyle Show, featuring some other people you'll have forgotton by the end of the year'.

@DannyG, I think a bit of housecleaning must have occurred on yesterdays' blog page and perhaps some trolls uncovered and eliminated. I went back to read your post regarding Tommy and didn't see it. I am heartbroken to lose Tommy and have appealed to him both on the blog and on e-mail to please reconsider and not let a troll keep him from celebrating our beloved Susan with us. I don't understand the motives of such people unless it is to destroy the camaraderie we have.

Posted by Sherry from Florida on June 24, 2009
@Allikat: Totally agree with you. Wish Susan could break free of BGT and AGT especially after seeing AGT last night - there was little talent and certainly no one I would want to see or hear again. Glad Susan has another manager besides Simon and hope he gets her max bucks if she does do AGT and X Factor. Also hope Simon puts Susan's CD as number 1 priority above promoting all his shows.

PLEASE NOTE----from the above article

Sooooo---the "most of the performers arrived by bus"---those that we all watched get off that stupid airplane all afternoon----and then "Boyle arrived in a silver Mercedes around 6pm". Is this not evidence enough, that Susan Boyle was NOT on the airplane!!!! And all those that did recognize her must have had Susan Boyle so burned in their retinas that they could look at most any of those women and see Susan instead!!! Oh, how she has infected our brains!!!!!

I agree with Allikat on America's Got Talent. There is only one Susan Boyle, and she should not appear on this show. Would be very nice for her to be left to record her album's and do a guest appearance on shows of her choice in the future.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
Susan could have gotten off the plane and gotten into a car while the others got onto a bus.

The kids yelling out do call out 'Susan - we love you" as the mystery lady steps out past the nose of the plane......at least that's what I think they said.

@DR - if you look at the video of them in Birmingham the other day, you'll see that they were ALL loaded onto a coach and taken to the venue, incluing Susan. If they had all arrived together, they'd have all travelled together on the coach to the venue. If susan arrived by car, then she clearly arrived from elsewhere, maybe via Edinburgh airport.
Posted by Randma on June 24, 2009
ponylady, I'm with you about dragging myself to the computer on a blistering day in order to see the latest Susan videos...blistering, sweltering here in Gulf Coast Texas (yesterday set a record 101 degrees with humidity that makes it feel like a sauna!!)

It is so wonderful to see Susan smile as she did in this performance because, as others said, she realizes how much she is loved. This obviously allows her to relax and deliver the fantastic renditions she does.

Well, I'm off to play with the grandbabies one last time before the oldest one must return to her home 200 miles away...

I've got an avatar now - at least I think that's what I've done. I thought it was safer to stay a gray head, but seems I was wrong. Took me a while to figure out how to replace that head, but there were some pretty good instructions posted. Thank you.

Sorry I never had something to represent me before. It explains a lot. Guess everybody thought I was one of those under-the bridge-creatures.

Actually, I've been here from the beginning, so I know all of you, you just didn't know me. I finally decided to register just a few weeks ago. Mostly I wanted to join so I could tell Tommy how beautiful his videos are. And everyone here seemed so nice. Pity - what has happened. I do hope things settle down while we wait for Paul's new site. I'd hate for others to leave as well.

@Teesiel, thank you so much for the closeups of Susan's performances. It is so good to see her facial expressions while hearing that golden voice. She was magnificent, as always, and the crowd loved her as expected.

Someone asked which of the Wimbley performances it was where Susan was throwing kisses to some unknown person or persons - it was the matinee performance.

Has anyone heard if Susan is performing today?

@DJG-Scotland **the filename of the ISO file is SUSANDVD9.ISO**

I can't seem to find the link for this file...maybe I just scrolled through too fast but I have looked a couple of times to no avail. If it's not too much trouble could you post it again.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009

DVD of the ABERDEEN performance now available:

As promised, I have created an ISO (disc image) file of a DVD of Susan's Aberdeen 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 156Mb!

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 SUSANDVD10.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 SUSANDVD10.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.

Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
DJG - yes, that is the most likely scenario unless they wanted the ones coming off the bus to be a diversion while they got Susan inside. What time did the plane land? Might tell us if they went straight to the theatre or to their hotel first.

And those yelling kids were a good way off and could have possibly mistaken the mystery lady for Susan the same as we have. But, when I freeze the video at 0.56 it looks like Susan to me...but then I need glasses :-)

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 10 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!

Re Tommy: yesterday a 'tribute to Tommy' video was uploaded - not by Tommy, but by another member here, expressing gratitude for all his wonderful contribuations to this site. Unfortunately the comments section was spoiled by a troll. I hope Tommy knows that one troll does not represent any on us or diminish our great affection for him. (The video and comments have been removed.)
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
@PWattis, a troll(s) accused Tommy of being a "crook" on the comments section of one of the tribute videos - and get this, it wasn't even his video. This is the thanks he gets for all the work he has done on this site. I have begged and begged him to reconsider, as he is the touchstone of this site, but so far to no avail. Perhaps Paul can help persuade him.

Opened my new HELLO magazine and on page63 there is a picture of our wonderful SUSAN! with the words: "A polished Susan Boyle sings at the debut of the BGT Live Tour in Birmingham, U.K. June 12. She skipped day three of the tour but is slated to perform with the other top acts through July." They used that nice side view picture at the top of our fan site banner. Very nice - positive. I may clip this pic and put on my dresser so when I'm puttin on the slap in the morning for work that I remember to 'say a little prayer for you'. The up close video of Memory (love how she says mam-ory). What an ease she has on stage - born to be a star!! She's smiling and interacting and just being cute!

@DR; Welcome aboard! I'd been following posts on Susan-Boyle.com since about U.S. Tax Day April 15th but didn't join until May 26th as member 18,760 or something.

I'd wanted to join Susan-Boyle.com when membership hit 1,500 but held off because I didn't want to "jump" in with blogging without knowing the kind of folks I'd be chatting with, but after Susan's 2nd BGT final I was rapturously overwhelmed and signed up to "rub shoulders" with fellow Susananians whom I consider to be a VERY decent group of folks ;>)

Time to get on with morning watering of my folk's property here in Cameron Park, California; gotta clean underneath eaves today, spray for spiders all while suffering from nasty case of eczema, gonna be one uncomfortable day! Chao for now.

Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
@PWattis, no. Our teasing of Tommy about Susan had nothing to do with it - I think he enjoyed that. He has never denied his love for her. The comment may have been removed by whoever does that, but it was made in the comments section of the video of "Susan and the Stars", which wasn't even one of Tommy's. Definitely troll. Then another one, or could have been the same one with a different name, criticized Tommy's new website.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
I know there are some talented singers amongst us, so I'm hoping someone can answer my dumb question here. I've seen something in these 2 videos that I've never seen before - maybe because they're close up. Her expression. It appears her lips stay curled back even when she's not singing. She never smiles until the songs are all over, as if she has been in a trance. But, she couldn't have been in a trance because I don't think I've ever seen her so relaxed on stage as in these videos. She interacts with the audience showing she hears them and sees them. Her face is totally relaxed and her eyes are twinkling so she can't be angry or sad. So I guess my question is - is this a singing technique she has recently learned or have I just missed it before?

I also noticed she has gone from interpreting the songs her way in the audition, to the very exaggerated renditions at the beginning of the tour, to a very very polished and natural performance. She looks completely relaxed and at home on the stage.

This woman is fantastic!....and getting better and better all the time.

Regarding Tommy, it was not just one attack. When I looked at the troll's member listing, which is now gone, on the left where comments the member has posted are listed, there were several, all video reviews, all similar in tone, attacking Tommy's integrity and the quality of his work. Apparently, since these were not on blogs but in the video reviews, somehow, they weren't noticed until I stumbled on that one accidently yesterday and posted on the blog about it. Tommy may feel we had seen them and just were not bothering to defend him. I do hope not.

Anyway, I want trolls to be deal with, especially that one, but I wish it could have been done without wiping out so many postings, and I do feel the members needed to know what had happened and what was going on which many obviously do not.

Danny
Posted by PWattis on June 24, 2009
@DR, are you talking about when she steps back from the mike during the interlude of Memories? If so, I don't think its a singing technique. To be honest her facial expression during that part has always bothered me a little. I wish for a more natural expression on her face. If you notice toward the end as she steps back to the mike she waves and her smile suddenly becomes very natural. This is just my opinion.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
@DR, I believe what Susan is doing is feeling her songs. Notice she always delivers them with such feeling and depth that she conveys that feeling to us every time. It's a magical thing for a singer to be able to do, and I've rarely seen anyone else do that.
Posted by Fran M. on June 24, 2009

Seeing the initial comment by DannyG regarding TommyUSA, I tried to go to yesterday's blog, saw nothing, so went to Tommy's profile and saw his post saying he is quitting this site. I sent him a message, and want to add my voice here to those who are encouraging him to come back to this community.

Trolls are not unique to this site. They infect the entire web. They sit in Mommy's basement and eat junk food, and their only fun, and only human interaction, is finding communities on the web and acting out like the little children they are. They are cyber-bullies. Just like the 4-year-old throwing a temper tantrum, they thrive on attention -- so it is always best to ignore them. If they can't create drama, they move on to a new community.

Susan Boyle was bullied in her hometown. She didn't let it defeat her. If she had responded to the bullying as the bullies wanted, she would never have kept on singing, she would never have had the guts to go for the BGT audition, and we wouldn't be here now because we never would have heard of her. To all the active members of this community, and to TommyUSA (one of our anchors here), I say, don't let these sniveling, punk mama's boys interfere with our delight in each other and in Susan Boyle. They have the attention span of a gnat, and if you ignore them for a day or two, they will move on to the next community and try their juvenile antics there.

We all have been appalled at the treatment Susan has received from the trashoids. Most of us don't even go to read their garbage anymore. Treat the trolls the same way. This site is evolving (as is Susan's performance), and someday we will be able to hit "report abuse" buttons, or hide comments by people we don't like, but for now, we just gotta pull together and ignore the little bully boys.

TommyUSA, come back.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
PWattis - yes, that's what I am talking about. She does it all the way through. A little unsettling until the beautiful smile does come. But always the twinkle in the eye. That's what I couldn't match up.

@DannyG, I didn't see the attack either, and I watched the video. It wasn't even Tommy's video! That troll found a sneaky way to slip in its poison, and then another one attacked his new website. I feel a great sense of loss, and hope Tommy changes his mind.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
Lonnirose - thank you for the explanation. It's reassuring to know it's part of the performance. That may explain why this performance is the absolute best she's ever done. So natural and genuine.

But they gotta do something about her dress. It's gonna fall off of her pretty soon. She is becoming very trim. More and more she is beginning to look that girl of 25 again.

Spot on charlieangle. A couple weeks ago I sincerely tried to help a fan on here and got a nasty email back. It unsettled me for the day and I know I should know better than to let it get to me but when they get you at a vulnerable moment it will affect the psyche. The person is not a troll, just someone who is obsessed and tired and misconstrues posts. This is the first comment since then that I've dared to post. By the way, I've been following this site since April and cancelled my membership about 3 times, here's to 4th time lucky.

"If you notice toward the end as she steps back to the mike she waves and her smile suddenly becomes very natural. "

I took this to mean that she is stepping out of the role and back into herself. She sings very theatrically, which is appropriate for these songs. Maybe she is trying to show Andrew Lloyd Webber that she is up to the job, should he put her in one of his productions.

@Lonnirose; (taking slow deep breaths), yes, IT will...quickly I hope!

I have to see Susan every day to get my fix. Since her audition for BGT I have followed her and she just gets better. I want her to be healthy and happy and yet I find myself thinking how can I wait until XMAS for her CD. I guess I'll just watch these videos every day until then, only prob. is I can't take these with me. I love you Susan.
Posted by BMS on June 24, 2009
I have never been on a fansite until Susan came along. I have been a lurker here for several weeks now, in fact I had no idea what a Blog was, I reviewed the videos and pictures but never did find this Blog until a few days ago. Now I am totally addicted. I read some posts, go away for an hour and there are so many posts to catch up. I sure wish they were numbered so I could easily go back to where I left off. I am absolutely obsessed with Susan, just like you all are. I cannot get enough of her and play the videos over and over again. I am not computer savvy, but maybe someday I'll be able to figure some things out, like how to donwload and make the DVD's.
I loved Tommy's tributes. I missed what happened yesterday, but want Tommy to know, he is the reason I am jumping in here now, to beg him to come back. Love, as always to Susan. The Aberdeen videos are fantastic. I love to see her expressions and I particularly liked the way she waved whilst holding onto the mike.

Glad to say that ponies and other critters usually play nicer than the playground bullies in the human world. So let's all go back to "grazing" on the sweet pastures of this site. And pleeeeeze don't anyone demand punctuation perfection from ME on a blog. I only supervised the wordprocessing center for a fortune 500 corporation and had enough of that boredom. Here it just doesn't matter:)and it's so refreshing to just say what we feel.

@BMS; Welcome to the Susaverse ;>) Do please ignore the "lice attack(s)" going on right now.
Posted by pickled tink on June 24, 2009
AFan2 hello - I see our point, and agree with much of what you say. I too have been a member of a number of different forums and sites. My observation is that yes trolls exist on all sites, they are a fact of life. However there is often an optimum point in the evolution of sites and forums, where the majority can unwittingly become intolerant of anything outside of a narrow view. We can forget that members are of different ages, from many different countries, from different cultures and creeds, that they speak different languages and may also be of differing intellectual capabilities. We may also have people on here with learning disabilities who struggle to express their views appropriately and are mislabelled. Some may be fixated on an issue like this person, who appears to have obsessive compulsive disorder to me, and who has attacked Tommy as a result. I am not excusing his actions by any stretch of the imagination, but what I am trying to do is understand them. I also noticed that squeaky bird, who was also accused by some, was defending Tommy to junebug in the offending thread. Squeaky bird may well have been trying to understand what junebug was about. His/her words were hurtful, and inexcusable, but that does not put them in the same basket as the troll who comes on spewing offensive language – and we have seen a lot of them in the chat room. On another forum he/she might perhaps be put onto moderator preview to ensure their wilder excesses did not hurt any one else, but that they were not excluded from being involved. This site is about love and understanding, and this guy seems to me to have issues.

Tommy we all love you honey, and this place would not be the same without you, I hope you know just how much real and genuine affection there is around here for you. I love reading your comments. Think about what Susan would want you to do, and you know what a fighter our girl is!

Loved the videos posted by Tieesel- now where is Jim from Scotland? He was in chat last night, and he was absoultely nearly speechless trying to express how incredible Susan was in person last night- I would love to read his blog about it, not little chat text bites, Jim if you have the time today?
Tommy, you should come back. If you let a troll bully you, they will have WON!

@SusanBoyleFan; THANK YOU!!! Now I can relax!

All true Susanites, PLEASE stay here on the blog page as much as you can to help fight the you-know-whats! What they want is to make us so disgusted that we leave.
Posted by Susansfan88 on June 24, 2009
Awesome performance Susan thanks Teesiel for the video:) Its so nice to see her close and see the expressions on her face that just give more to the songs she sings You are absolutely amazing Susan :) In everyway possible you brighten up our days :)
Posted by debbie r on June 24, 2009
indysue I have wondered about that as well. I think IDAd has some particular meaning for Susan. During the BGT performances I felt like she might singing to Piers. Whatever I am so proud of her grace and yes her beauty. She is coming into her own as I believe she was meant too. This is her time. I can not abide these negative comments by others.

Susan,
I can't get enough of your voice. Please release a album real soon. God Bless You.

@Cee--do you have a slow internet connection causing your video problems? some videos are off video/audio. Susan blew kisses during the afternoon performance. imbed this video is for people putting them on their net sites.

can you play the video of Memory at Aberdeen on youtube okay? cut and paste the url into your browser.

I note that my last post has been removed because it referred to the you-know-whats. That's fine by me. Paul is on the case and that is as it should be. Only true Susanites allowed.
Can I also make a personal plea - come back to us, Tommy. We miss you! It's not the same without you and your shining love for 'oor lassie'!
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
@Cee - if you have a reasonably fast connection (or have access to one) you can download the Aberdeen DVD image file and play it on your TV. See the earlier post (in green text) for info.
Posted by weeone on June 24, 2009
Sad that people leave. That means the bully won after all. I hate to see that.

I went to look at the chatroom. You have to type fast there and only put short sentences.

I don't know what to say that is new. It is all said in other peoples comments. I read a lot about Tommy and saw some of his great tributes. Will he be able to read this if he has left. Maybe someone he knows will tell him. I hope so.

Posted by whisper1 on June 24, 2009
I have lurked on this site from the beginning. Tammy has been a delight and wonderful fan of Susan’s and I assume he still is. I believe that Tommy is bigger than allowing a troll to chase him away. Hey, if Susan has courage and can overcome all the nastiness thrown at her I cannot see why Tommy cannot overcome this meaningless troll stuff....? So Tommy just let the pride thing go and come back the fans on this sit love you….!!!
Susan was wonderful last night what a wonderful human being and such talent she shares will the world.
peace and joy

OK, with your advice, I've added a thumbnail. This is all new for me, too; and it takes time. I certainly hope that I have not offended anyone with any past posts; and look forward to ongoing news, stories, and cute comments (loved the dog w/ glasses in regards to our ability to see!). So sorry there have to be trolls... The good shall overcome.. Thanks to the editor; but I hope we can be free to express what comes naturally positive.
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 24, 2009
@stevieboy49; Agree as well, don't mind either if my vain attempts at "rodent control" get nixed by our Administrator. Lesson for me is don't mix something important I'd want to say in with admonishing an attacker else its gone for good!

Logging off for now; see (i.e. read) y'all later today - Chao!

OH, WOWWWW!!!! Look at how graciously Susan acknowledges with a hand gesture each one in the audience as they cry out in adoration during the performance of Memory!!! That is SO SUSAN!!!! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!

well, i figured how to add a picture to my profile- it is a bland picture to be sure, but I don't have any pix of me taken from a digital camera to download- I will try later on to figure out how to download a pictureon Susan and add it instead of these bland flowers (LOL) I am feeling really sick today. May have to call off work- nothing about Susan making me sick, just ate something bad yesterday....
Posted by B.J. on June 24, 2009
The close-up videos are terrific -- thank you to Teesiel for posting. We can see Susan's interpretations better than most of the audience!! Her singing is captivating, as always. But I do think she looks tired, particularly on IDAD. Doesn't prevent her from delivering a knockout performance, though. It must be very difficult to keep singing the same songs over and over with the same enthusiasm and keeping them fresh-sounding. I think she's rising to the occasion beautifully -- what a sport!!

Tommy, your presence among us is definitely missed. Thank you for all the beautiful videos you provided -- they gave a great deal of enjoyment to all of us.

LucyB, I want to echo your THANK YOU to all the people behind the scenes who make the effort to upload videos to this site. I don't have that ability, but I REALLY APPRECIATE their efforts!!

Hello my wonderful friends and family....I am overwhelmed by the love and
support that you all have given me. And still in tears. I want to personally
thank all of you for your emails. Of course, I don't think I could ever get
to answering all of them. And that is why I want to thank you all here and now.
I am so sorry for upsetting the cart yesterday, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I never intended for that to happen. I am back, and our wonderful
Admin. Paul, is aware of everything. He, if anyone, is to be thanked. I love all
of you, and if I don't get back to you on your emails, please don't be offended.
I do have a request to make. If you have any comments to this, please let's not
put it on the blog, and take up too much space. This blog is for Susan. I just
wanted to let you all know that Paul has re-activated my account, and I will
continue to contribute to the site all that I can. A special love to you ALL
from Louisiana.......blessings, Tommy
Posted by bjNewMexicoUSA on June 24, 2009
I signed off last night and didn't see the post attacking Tommy. I've watched his videos. but not read the comments, so I was unaware that he was being attacked by a troll. And one now seems to be attacking Paul. ENOUGH! Both Paul and Tommy have dedicated a lot of effort into seeing that this site honors Susan. The attacks must stop.

Tommy, like many others here I hope you will return to the site. Your presence is special and you are so talented which shows in the beautiful videos you create and share with us. If, like Susan, you need to take a few days away to rest and regroup, do it. Then please come back to us.

New members, welcome. Feel free to join in our celebration of the most wonderful, divine Miss Susan Boyle.

Posted by tweek on June 24, 2009
I have been off site all nite, unaware of the problems going on. We had a peaceful community here of fans, and I hope it returns as we go forward. Somehow when you have success like Susan had, there also seems to have a devious demon that follows. If this site had not been successful, maybe we would not have had this problem. Tommy U.S.A. put his heart and soul into making these artistic videos for everyone to enjoy. I hope Tommy will return as he has been of great value in not only input, but in maintaining moral support for our entire group of fans.
Posted by judyann on June 24, 2009
Paul thanks for keeping the downers out of here.
Tommy I'm so happy to see you back.
. . . and I love how Susan is giving out so much love to the audience like she does and was so happy to see her cute smile up close. I can't believe how she can throw kisses and wave and not lose her place in the song as Carnegie61 said. Marvelous.

Posted by BJG on June 24, 2009
DR: I have noticed Susan did that a number of times, and you describe it to a "tee". I figured it was a way to project a certain sound. If anyone knows, I hope you will tell us all.
Posted by nibbana on June 24, 2009
Thank you so much to all of those who work to post the wonderful videos of Susan - Great Close Ups! What a treat. As well as the link to any new articles which I love reading as well.

As far as trolls and negativity on this blog go - my philosophy is I don't feed into it. Negativity is looking for food in order to keep itself going and growing.

Letting go of engaging with negativity eventually causes it to dissipate and move on. As it will have nothing to feed on.

A phrase keeps popping into my head when I think about Susan. See how it sets with you all...Living Legend.
Posted by tweek on June 24, 2009
Sometimes comments go unnoticed when they appear under the video clips, here is one written from the heart and soul:

Posted by Dottie51 on 6/23/2009
This was a beautiful set of pictures that all of her fans will love! And yes, Susan, we adore you! We didn't know you when you were little, but we love you as the adorable baby on you mother's lap, as the little girl at the piano, as the schoolgirl dealing with old fashioned schools and small-town bullies, as a beautiful young woman sharing her beautiful voice at family festivities and local events, as the sturdy, steady caretaker for her parents, putting all her own dreams and ambitions on hold, and now as her obligations to them have ended, she decides to do one thing more for her mother---honor her mother's dream for her, face uncertainty and possible disappointment, push through the obstacles and push past those who can't stand to see others succeed... and transform into this beautiful, world-renowned singer who thrills the hearts of so many all around the world. And at the same time, staying the same cheerful, charming, witty Susan that we met at that first audition! Ah, Susan, how we adore you!!!

I Hope these comments will brighten you day, as they did mine!
Posted by PWattis on June 24, 2009
Just a thought I have regarding Afan2's post and Tommy's situation (very glad you're are back, Tommy): If someone as strong as Tommy can be knocked off balance by a troll then think how someone else might feel to be attacked by another fan. This has happened several times on this site. I think some people with strong personalities have any idea how hurtful some of their comments and criticisms have been. I'm not talking to anyone in particular right now. I just know it has occurred and it has bothered me a great deal every time.

BTW, has anyone heard from Reinder recently? Did he leave?
Posted by Teesiel on June 24, 2009
Good morning (11 am here) , good afternoon and good evening--people are from all over the world here. Tried to read all of the posts very quickly.
Just wanted to say in Glasgow Susan signed her autograph as
Susan Boyle and then under it (SuBo) so I think she finds it a term of
endearment, actually. :-) Wanted to say: notice in the Aberdeen Memory at :15-:17 she starts giggling to herself. Must think this whole thing is quite a trip. Also how cute in the Aberdeen Curtain call when she runs to catch up to Julian--I mean he could have come a little more center and not just waited on his line for her to catch up. Gotta love it!!
Posted by tweek on June 24, 2009
Lonnirose, thank you...I had gone away from my computer for a couple hours and come back and did not read the new
notes...most glad to hear Tommy is back...
Posted by Carnegie61 on June 24, 2009
Lonnierose - I haven't seen anything about Susan NOT performing. If she isn't, we probably won't know for a while as it will take the media some time to fabricate an outlandish story about why she stayed home.
Posted by bjNewMexicoUSA on June 24, 2009
These closeup videos are great. I've not seen a performer who interacts with the audience during a song while staying in the mood of the song as Susan did. I've seen some able to tune out the distractions to stay in the song almost like being in a bubble. Then after they finish, they interact with the audience. In my limited experience, I think Susan's ability to do both is quite amazing.

We've really been privileged to witness Susan's growth from that first audition to her being a consumate star. And don't go away folks--there's more to come.
Posted by cicichi on June 24, 2009
9:53 am CDT ~~ Good morning to the Susan Global Village ~~ Just watched again to the close-up vids of last night's Aberdeen performance. It was both unique from the other performances and at the same time just as beautiful. Susan seemed really tuned into the group of young girls close to the stage and to her right. When they shouted lovingly to her she responded (multiple times by waving and smiling.) But she didn't forget the words, just kept on singing. I watched her eyes and she does look around the audience and makes that eye contact, how lovely. Another great performance Susan. Rhw BGT Tour is almost over and you can set your own pace. We love you Susan.

There are so many wonderful helpful people on this site and TOMMY USA is first among them. Feel so badly that some troll ruined his day and took joy away from him. He has spent hours and hours devoting himself to additions to this site. I remember the "I got it" for one of Susan's concert. He was the first to post for us. I don't know when he eats, works or sleeps - he has been so devoted to all us fans. I hope too that he can let go of his hurt by one person and rejoin us with this wonderful person. We love you, Tommy! If Susan can do it,so can you!

Sorry, Tommy, I had to say "Welcome back" on here! I am very happy you are back.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
Carnegie, LOL!! You got that right - the slimoids would be all over that like white on rice.

PWattis, you make a good point. One of the disadvantages of writing is that the voice inflections are missing, so sometimes a perfectly innocent comment is taken the wrong way by the reader. We are all here with a common interest (obsession?) and that is our love and admiration for the wonderful Susan. We can disagree, but nicely.
Posted by B.J. on June 24, 2009

DJG-Scotland When you are GOBSMACKED (that's a new word I learned, thanks to Susan and this site) and finally have to admit it was her, will YOU will going to the eye doctor? Hope you know I am saying this with a good nature.
Posted by chrisk on June 24, 2009
@ Fran M We never knew if she liked it (SuBo) or not. I was hesitant to use it because the tabloids came up with it and we know how mean they have been. But it does look as if Susan is embracing it. Good for her. Better to do that that to stress over it.
Posted by PWattis on June 24, 2009
@Lonnirose, I definitely agree there can be misunderstandings due to writing instead of speaking. The incidents, I am thinking of, however, were pretty clear personal attacks. Oh well, I guess its none of my business if it didn't involve me.

@Teesiel, thank you for the inside scoop regarding Susan being okay with the name SuBo. I still would never be able to bring myself to call her that though. I wonder if she also knows that she has also been dubbed very affectionately as Lady Susan? My guess is not since the media hasn't picked up on it.

Posted by YeahSusan on June 24, 2009
Dear Tommy,So glad to hear that you are back! We need you.

Sorry to be a drag but somewhere I saw the instructions on downloading a picture for our account and I can't find it on this blog. Was it on yesterday's blog? Thanks
Posted by jordie on June 24, 2009
Welcome back, dear Tommy, in the bosom of your "family", as they say. ((hugs))

Susan's Aberdeen performances were as usual, stellar. It is nice to be able to see her facial expressions. Oh, she is adorable!!! I think her rendition of "Memory" was probably the best she has done. I agree,tho', she looks tired.

Dulcie: Your lovely video..Tribute from Canada...expresses Canadians' love and support for OurSusan. And the music too, so well chosen. I am so techstupid, I am amazed at the talent and savvy demonstrated by so many clever members expressing love and support for our dear Susan. Thank you, Dulcie, from a fellow Canadian, and thank you Tommy for your help to Dulcie in making this video.

I watched part of AGT last night. I decided that I don't think PiersyBaby is for Our Susan. He, and his hectic life would not suit Susan, IMHO.

All for now...back later. Many thanks for posting those nice close-ups, Teesiel.

chrisk I used that one time (SuBo) over on that U-tube and goodness they attacked me like I was a troll. I didn't know I had said anything wrong when I called her that. I had meant it in a good way. My one and only time ever to leave a comment there.
Posted by jayhawk fan on June 24, 2009
@Teesiel...did you get her autograph or see someone who did? Thank you so much for the great videos from yesterday and WELCOME BACK TOMMY!
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
@Fran, I think one of Susan's brothers made that comment, but who knows if the press got it right. If she's signing her name that way, she must like it all right. I think it's kinda cute and can't see that it's offensive in any way unless I'm missing something. I've even seen Pebbles called Pebbo in some paper or other.

Last night after watching Susan's videos for the umpteenth time I was in the kitchen and thought I heard Susan on TV. Came running in to see if maybe one of her clips was on, and there was just a cartoon playing. Then I realized - it was in my head!
Posted by Fran M. on June 24, 2009
chrisk: Thanks for your explanation re "SuBo". I think it's a compliment to her to be known by initials of sort. Only high-profile celebs get to be known with such abbreviations.
Posted by Fran M. on June 24, 2009
Lonnirose, thanks for youre reply also re SuBo. Sometimes I wonder if her brothers really know what Susan is thinking.
Posted by Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia on June 24, 2009
@All re. Appropriateness of saying "SuBo" discussion; That's a GREAT question to direct at Susan' publicist; for now I'll continue calling her Susan.
Posted by a-texfan on June 24, 2009
DJG-Scotland I want to play so here's my two cents,I agree with you and it wasn't Susan getting off the plane, but I don't have your visual acuity... size of arms? foot size? WOW
got to love it....

Thanks Retired in FBK for helping to protect this great village count me part of the reserve!!

Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
I think it's so funny how there is so much written about AGT trying to find another Susan Boyle. I'm sure there are fine undiscovered singers in the world, but where are they going to find someone just as gifted with also her charisma, her personality-plus, her dear, sweet, lovable-ness! Good luck with that! Susan is one of a kind, and it's hilarious that AGT can even hope to repeat a once in a lifetime discovery. Or maybe they don't really, they are just trading on Susan's name.

By the way, welcome back TommyUSA!
Posted by mclim on June 24, 2009
Lonnirose That's pretty pathetic, isn't it? I'm sorry you were treated that way. I was too, so I just don't go there.
Posted by terijay on June 24, 2009
I hope Susan takes a rest day today. She did Birmingham already, so it would be a good plan. I suspect that will be the case, as the travel is the toughest part on Her and everyone else... after Simon's letter to the Daily Mail, in which he explictly states that Susan has, from the beginning of this tour, been able to chose which days she wants to perform, The tabloids may not even print the now "non-story" at all this time.
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 24, 2009
If "Subo" is OK for Subo then it is OK for Me! Thanks, Teesiel for sharing that info with us.
Glad to have you back, Tommy! All's well that ends well!
Birmingham, here she comes, AGAIN! Wow, how come these 'brummies' get two shows from our gracious one? Not fair, really. It will be interesting so compare the two performances, though - to see how much Susan has refined her singing, gestures etc. Can't wait!
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
I forgot to mention the unique quality of Susan's voice, the spine-tingling, tear-producing, soul-enhancing mysterious something that causes the world to say, "There's an angel in our midst." AGT can't possibly, really, think they can find another Susan.

Your latest post is yet another example of the warm and sincere person you are! Thank you for all that you've done so far! Let's go on sharing our thoughts, feelings and jokes lightheartedly! Susan is doing good and improving on that! Aren't we lucky to belong to this very special fan site!
Posted by Maria Jean on June 24, 2009
@tweek What a great idea to have it posted in Susan's town. Thanks for this idea. I thought it expressed Susan's life in such a beautiful way. I did email Dottie to tell her how beautiful it was just in case she didn't see the posting here.
Posted by ponylady on June 24, 2009
Was just smiling at the little hand wave Susan gave to the "Subo you go" fan in the audience. It made me realize she probably has done that before to rave responses by her followers in Karaoke performances. It came very automatically and happily and sure made me happy to see her smile and, as usual, not miss a beat. I hope for a best selling autobiography, prepared with Susan, especially in regard to her views on how her life was in Blackburn. I'll bet we would be very surprised at her "memories."
Posted by a-texfan on June 24, 2009
Lonnirose, I too am sorry you were treated so poorly. Your love for Susan is so genuine and your spunk makes me laugh. There are always haters out there.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
Maybe Susan's going with how she feels as to which days off she chooses. She has to be tired from all that traveling, and she gives so very much to her performances. Still, she's a true artist and thrives on "singing before a large audience."
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
I think Susan has finally realised that the audience will do anything she wants! She could tell them all to hop on one leg, and they'd do it!
Posted by Janet in Texas on June 24, 2009
Tommy is back, things have settled down, love and understanding have returned, wounds have been licked, mistakes have been forgiven, all is OK again. Sounds like a family and "We are among friends, are we not?" I watched Susan the night she was mentioned on US nightly news and have watched her everyday since then...This site is an amazing place and is now a real part of my life. I love coming here multiple times a day...Goodness and understanding live here..lets keep it up. I bless all those who believe in this place and stayed through the problems..this site mirrors life in more ways than we know..Love to All

@a-texfan, thanks. I just blew it off and deleted it.

Tell ya'll what I've noticed about the audience when Susan sings: They just go wild when she moves, especially when she opens her arms to them. I just love seeing that, and as annoying as they can be sometimes I love hearing the adulation she receives from the crowd. Her response to them is amazing - she handles it with such grace.
Posted by CzechLadyUSA on June 24, 2009

Disappointed with AGT. It needs some higher standard guidelines and only shown for 1 hour for 1 night.
Posted by ponylady on June 24, 2009
Has anyone experienced a fan club site with this amount of constant activity? Since it is my first and probably only one in my life I wonder. As much as we worry about the BGT tour and all its stress on our singing super star, it seems the tour is our "Superbowl" "March Madness" and "World Series" and maybe even Olympics for all the wonderful news we are able to garnish from it. Do you think when Susan moves to the recording studio for a time we will be likely to spend this much time here? I somehow hope so and my aching body somehow hopes not :) Need to get out of this chair more!

Howdy Pards,

Just got back to the ranch after a few chores. Been
readin' your posts and looks like Paul is cleanin' up after some varmints hit. Tommy, I didn't even know you had left before ya got back. And it sure is good to have
ya back in this here outfit where ya belong. If we gotta
get ourselves a Louisiana Posse goin' just say the word,
I'll be saddled and ready to ride along with a few thousand others in this here outfit...the bad guys wont have a chance. Don't anybody ever leave this here outfit because of some troll...if ya do the bad guys win. Stay
right here with your family and ol' Paul will clean up the mess in no time flat. By the way Paul, thanks...we
appreciate it.

Hey, Teesiel, thanks for roundin' up these great videos. Ya done good.

Today the show heads back to Birmingham and the National Indoor Arena!

O.K....I ain't no teenage girl...so truth is I don't
gotta clue what causes them to shout out during the middle
of a performance. Round home that would be considered downright rude. Expecially if you are so near the stage
that the performer can't help but hear it. As I watched
these videos it seemed to me that there were some downright rude teenage girls squeelin' and squirmin' and
yellin' when they shoulda just been settin' there and listenin' to Susan sing. Course I grew up in another time altogether...things were a whole lot different back in those days. I thank the Good Lord that I wasn't born
any later than I was...reckon I belong back in the 1800's
somewheres rather than up here in 2009... All I know is,
if I woulda made noises durin' a concert somewheres my folks woulda made it kinda clear that I shouldn't do that...till the performance was over.

Reckon I'm gettin' old...kinda turnin' into my Dad...and his Dad...and his...

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

One more thing: Any word on whether or not Susan will sing in Birmingham tonight?
Posted by julieoffutt on June 24, 2009
I agreee with patriciasart and so many of you on this website: IT'S TIME FOR SUSAN TO FINISH BGT. Also, any thoughts of AGT and Las Vegas should be forgotten for now. Our lassie needs to get the first of her CDs done (I hope she choses some of the songs many of us have suggested but whatever she choses will be just fine with me) and go back to Blackburn and regroup. I get irritated more each day with Piers and Simon. They don't OWN Susan! Maybe there's another song we could add to that list of songs for her to sing: FREE AGAIN! We want her to be herself again. She has no need to prove anything to anyone. She IS a professional singer. She's won the hearts of more fans than any singer in history. I'll bet Barbra Streisand could tell her a thing or two about maintaining her privacy. Soon for Susan, I hope: HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
Even a minor irritation like death wouldn't stop me going out to buy a Susan CD!

Posted by joyceleo on June 24, 2009
Another stunning performance. Her diamond shines brighter with each cut. She is SO far beyond any talent shows that I find it sad to see the BGT folks trying to drag her into more such shows. She is a world-class performer on her own. She could even have her own show and bring on compatible stars to sing and cavort with her in her own inimacable way. As for Tommy, he is one of the purest admirers of all time. This is my first fan club and I had no idea about trolls and such, but that goes with the territory. Stamp them out and FREE SUSAN!
Posted by pickled tink on June 24, 2009
Susan's brother said in an interview that Whistle Down The Wind was the song she waned to do in the final, but the produces wanted her to do IDAD - I can see why they did as it is her signature song, but I am so longing to hear her sing WDTD and to hear that loud and clear.
Posted by tweek on June 24, 2009

@ponylady, I've never joined a fan club either and I went through Elvis, etc. Susan has just captivated all of us. I stay on here just about all day, and when I have to do something else I resent the time I have to spend away from the fansite. You'd think I was obsessed or something!

While we are having a moment of relative calm and can maybe take a breath, I wonder if any one of you have thought of Susan singing "I loves You, Porgy" from Porgy and Bess. Haven't looked at everyone's lists, so I don't know if anyone put it down. Anyway, it recently popped into my head, and I can see her singing it beautifully, can almost hear her. Anybody agree?

Teesiel I saw the little giggle too, and when the fans said SuBo she smiled and gave a kiss to the area where she heard it from then a little wave. It's so good to see her interact with the audience. Yes, Diversity are the winners of BGT but she's the people's choice, not the voters choice.

Posted by joyceleo on June 24, 2009
Susan is now cooperating with the Subo-Susan screams from the audience in the midst of her singing and even responding with little waves and head noddings and smiles. She is apparently now a genuine ROCK STAR as well as a Classic Songbird. Rocking apparently means that the audience interacts with its icon as much or more than listening to the words. It's part of the Rock scene and apparently not meant as rudeness? She's taking it all in stride, but she does need a rest.
Posted by a-texfan on June 24, 2009
Summertime is one of my all time favorites. I can hear Susan singing it and want melt.

PWattis regarding lady Susan, there is an phone in interview from the CBC Canada and the journalist said "how about Lady Susan, that has a nice title doesn't it?" and Susan laughed, the reporter then said "I quiet like it." etc. it's here in the video archive. She's the only one that never ask Susan about a make over, she talks to her like they're friends. Asks questions about her mother and Susan hesitates but answers her with a Yes it's a good interview.

Posted by terijay on June 24, 2009
Agree with Joyceleo- She is becoming an Idol to the teen set- which is very interesting! Should boost her CD sales, should it not? The larger the demographic, the more the CD should fly off the shelves.
I also agree that Susan should quit the tour now- they can say she strained her voice or something - not the old "she is tired" crap.
Maybe do one or two in Ireland, and that's it.
Posted by AmazinglyCritical on June 24, 2009
I would loveeeeeeeeeeeee to see Susan grab the mic and hold it in her hand. I still think the BGT people aren't letting her because she might drown out the other acts?? I dunno but I think her voice is literally magical when she's holding the mic as opposed to standing infront of it. Does anyone know if Susan is singing tonight?

Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
Oh Summertime! Perfect!!! Susan would make that song popular again all over the charts. I bet some of the younger crowd has never even heard it, or at least not much. I hope she does some hymns, too. She sang in church, so she probably knows hundreds of those.
Posted by Been Touched by an Angel on June 24, 2009

Teesiel,

Thank you so very much for these wonderful close-up videos! They make me gulp & tear up ... I feel like I am at the concert.

Thanks to all who make this an extraordinary fansite for an extraordinary Susan.

I wasn't following what happened yesterday with negative comments but I just hope that we all can take a lesson from Susan and just keep on our paths no matter what evil is lurking about trying their best to bring us down.

God Bless Susan and all her supporters!

Has anyone ever heard Romeo and Juliet (the movie version) played on a violin? I've long thought it one of the best examples of violin playing.

Well, the violin can take a back seat to the way Susan sounds when she sings the word "Midnight" at the beginning of the Aberdeen Memory. I've never heard someone sound like an exquisitely-tuned violin before.

I think this is what makes her unique. No one else's voice is their instrument like hers is.
Posted by mclim on June 24, 2009
I think she would be great singing "This is the Moment" from the play "Jekyll and Hyde." One verse is:

"This is the day, see it sparkle and shine,
when all I've lived for becomes mine."

I think that song would fit her perfect.
Posted by ca0911 on June 24, 2009
I know it's distracting when the kids yell out but most are probably used to going to rock concerts where it doesn't matter how loud they are, the amps drown them out. I have to say, I think it is neat that kids seem to love her so much. She simply sings.............no ear-splitting amps, no gyrating, no glitz, just Susan and a spectacular voice. I read on one of the blog comments (not here) that she had no appeal for the under 30's. Well, she has certainly put the lie to that.
Posted by ammo on June 24, 2009
Hi, I'm still reading blogs regularly, apart from saying what excellent close up videos....really nothing new to add...until I get my husband to show me how to upload one of the pictures I took of the doll. It isn't as big as the one I saw on the playlist...but it's cute.

'Summertime and the livin' is easy'........Just keep hearing it in my head. Been sung by so many but Susan would blow it away!!!
Posted by lttlesis on June 24, 2009
Teesiel these are superior videos! The best yet. Her interaction with the fans was wonderful. I especially liked that she could do that while listening for her cue in the middle of "Memory". Shows our Susan is finding her "sea legs" so to speak and she was much more confident. I would rate this a 15.
Posted by ksdust on June 24, 2009
Teesiel--good to know that. if Susan likes being called SuBo then it's okay! she responded to the fan who called it out to her last night. I think she's really "getting it" that she is liked!!

scrolling through here I haven't seen Tommy yet but am so glad he's back.

Tommy, you are liked and appreciated, too!

Someone earlier mentioned that IDAD is Susan's signature song and I agree. I hope it is also the name of her new CD because it sums up the reason for her being where she is today. Perhaps someone will write a song for her called "My Dream Came True"!
Posted by purplegothicqueen on June 24, 2009
She responded so warmly towards the audience at Aberdeen, this is what made this performance extra special. The way she smiled and waved at them and even acknowledged the person who shouted out "Subo..." It didn't seem to bother her the nickname. I'm not too keen on it myself really, Susan is a nice name; but so long as Susan doesn't seem to mind it - it is okay! lol! I do wonder what Barbara Streisand is thinking of all this. It was her who I remember singing it. Susan has made this song her own and I want to hear so much more from her. After the tour, when she has taken a nice long rest, I hope her CD will be packed with stuff like "The Best," (Tina Turner) and perhaps even "Goldfinger...." I think her voice suits so many different songs.

Loving each and every performance Susan gives. One amazing lady! She blows the audience away!
Posted by vera on June 24, 2009
What a pro Susan is. To sing like that and acknowledge the cheers of the audience at the same time - she really does seem to be enjoying herself now. Would love to see her perform in person; hope she makes it out to Vancouver one of these days.

Howdy Pards,

Well, I ain't so sure Susan likes bein' called SuBo.
She may have smiled and recognized those overly enthusiastic teenagers but I think that was just Susan being nice. Don't mistake that for liking the name SuBo.

Namecallin' never was a flatterin' thing. Her name is
Susan Boyle. Let's not forget that it was the British tabloid press that created the unflattering nicknames to sell their trash.

I reckon you can do whatever ya want...but, you wont be
hearin' me calling Susan anything but Susan...unless it's
the Scottish Singing Sensation or something flattering like that.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Words can hurt...just as bad as sticks and stones.

It'll be interesting to see if IDAD ends up being Susan's signature song but I'm not so sure. Her voice is so amazing, I don't think we've heard the signature yet, although, that'll be close.

It's going to be mighty difficult for Susan to extricte herself from the controlling BGT folks. As much as we love Susan and her purity, to some, it's all about money. Here is a reputable article from today's Financial Times:

From the Financial Times www.ft.com
TV’s Cowell and retailer Green join forces
By Matthew Garrahan in Los Angeles and Elizabeth Rigby in London
Published: June 23 2009 21:27 | Last updated: June 23 2009 23:12
Simon Cowell, one of the world’s biggest TV stars, has joined forces with Sir Philip Green, the British retail billionaire, to form a global entertainment company that will create and own television content on both sides of the Atlantic.
The two men, close friends for the past decade, have been working closely together in recent weeks, with Sir Philip travelling to Los Angeles to advise Mr Cowell on a new contract to appear on the Fox network’s American Idol.
The venture with Sir Philip will effectively act as a holding company for all of Mr Cowell’s entertainment interests, which include Britain’s Got Talent, America’s Got Talent and The X-Factor. But it will also be a springboard for new programming devised or produced by Mr Cowell, with Sir Philip providing business advice.
For Sir Philip, the new company, which has yet to be named, provides a potentially lucrative merchandising opportunity – particularly in fashion, his traditional speciality. It is unclear how much capital Sir Philip will put into the venture.
Mr Cowell, a judge on American Idol, the most-watched US TV programme, has been inbeen talks with 19 Entertainment, which owns the rights to the show, and News Corp’s Fox network about a new contract. His deal with the programme, the cornerstone of the Fox schedule, expires in May.
Mr Cowell and Sir Philip declined to comment but a person familiar with the talks said a new American Idol deal would probably be struck for Mr Cowell through the new Green-Cowell entity.
Mr Cowell has been offered an American Idol contract that would make him the best-paid star of TV, with a deal likely to surpass even Oprah Winfrey’s estimated earnings, according to a person familiar with the talks.
The person added that Mr Cowell was keen to agree new deals with all of his broadcasting and music partners. His long-term deal with Sony Music comes to an end next year. Sony is keen to keep him on board thanks to the success of acts such as Leona Lewis, who were discovered by Mr Cowell through The X-Factor, his UK singing competition show.
Sir Philip and Mr Cowell are keen to ensure a smooth transition to the new company, said another person familiar with the situation. “Philip is only interested in working with existing partners and not new partners,” the person said.

It is crazy if people are posting negative comments here.

I never really understood the goosebumps thing, but I finally got it after watching the Aberdeen live show. It was GREAT!!!! I am just waiting for her CD. She has really improved miles since the semis and final, or more accurately, I should say she is now much more to herself now.

THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN for putting the wonderful close up clips.
Posted by Linda Sharon on June 24, 2009
Hi Susan villagers: I'd love to see Cry Me a River on her new CD. The recording available is really beautiful and shows what control she has over her voice - a ballad tells the story and she tells it good. Loved the close up on latest video. She's looking every inch the star now isn't she. (no ? mark - just fact). She's developed a poise on stage that it would take years to develop. she's not an overnight success in many ways as she's paid her views singing all over the place. BGT is just where she plugged in and hit electricity!! May God send his love peace and care over her today. Bright tomorrrows too!

@DJG-Scotland - I like the walking skeleton image! It made me laugh! 'Minor irritation' like death won't stop you from buying Susan's CD. That's really funny! It's good to have something like that break the seriousness of some of the comments - so thanks for the image! In my case, I am postponing by birthday until I get hold of Susan's first CD. This may be a minor irritation - but come to think of it, I will be younger by a few months!! TOMMY, thanks for coming back. I joined this fansite not long ago and the first impression I got was that you are doing a lot of work for this site and that people here love and appreciate you. Another thing I noticed is that besides loving Susan you also love God so this is why I like you. Please don't let any negative post bring you down Tommy. Don't let the enemy of our souls throw parties at our expense. Tommy and SUSAN, YOU ARE LOVED!
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 24, 2009
Wild Ol' Dan.... Amen, Pard! I, too, am of the same opinion. I often refer to Susan as "oor lassie" because, like me, she is from Bonnie Scotland! I am still not happy about referring to her as SuBo. She might like it, although I am still not 100% convinced of that, despite Teesiel's assertion, and unless I hear it from Susan herself, Susan or "lassie" it shall be. "Let the lassie sing," as one of her neighbours once said." As I have myself said earlier, she is far too polite to reject the soubriquet in any case. What's wrong with chanting ....Susan ...Susan anyway? I have heard that on the soundtrack of most of the videos posted on this site and it is her name after all.
Again, re Birmingham, no news is......
Re this announcement about Simon Cowell and Philip Green. Why am I so uneasy about that? Is it a coincidence that we have a grovelling apology from Simon last week and now this new venture is announced soon after.
Mmmm.
Posted by chirper on June 24, 2009
Love the way she gives a "wiggle wave" with her fingers when she is holding the mike and someone shouts they love her. Are they having a rest day today? Why no news? Would love new pics but that would mean her privacy breached and we really want her to have time and space to herself.

I'm an old rocker..my iPod has Beatles, Stones, Bob Seger, Pink Floyd, 3 Dog Night, Queen, etc and the iPod goes everywhere I do..love music going constantly..car is tuned to rock stations..etc. Lately I haven't listened to the car radio because it gets in the way of Susan singing in my head...LOL ;-).
It's fun speculating about the songs we would like to hear Susan sing...There is one song I dearly would love to hear her sing as a duet... It is "Don't Know Much" this is a duet with Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville. Aaron has an unusual and amazing voice. Wild 'Ol Dan, being from Louisiana, I'll bet you have heard him sing. Don't know who would be best with her in this duet, but it is a sensational love song ahhhhhhhh. that is MY dream..Jsut thoughts flying around in by Texas sun baked brain...Love to All...

Hello friends,
I love Susan singing Memories in Aberdeen. I'm also impressionned by the warm reaction of very young people in the audience. Even my kids like her so much!
I find Piers' article linked before certainly not his best one, but not so much offensive either, just like an "accident in work" - if it's ok in English. I think he only wanted to promote AGT with a simpliest possible message and he knows how to make a good title o short sentence that people will remember, even if this one about beating etc. wasn't kind. BTW Susan IS the true BGT winner and that's why they are all talking about her and nobody else whan there is a discussion about ratings or the BGT tour concerts. On the other hand your strong comments may make him or other media be more carefull in the future, so it's good.
In Poland it's now 8 p.m., it's cold and raining all the time, but with this site you feel better at once :-)
For me it's also the first fanclub or fansite I ever joined, it's pretty active and I really enjoy it.
Great that Tommy is back!!!
Posted by katladyd on June 24, 2009
Susan just keeps getting better and better. She is now not just an unusually talented singer, she is scary good. In my opinion, for what it's worth, Susan Boyle is the best singer alive today. Her voice is enchanting, pure, and true. Her personality is fun, loving, and rich. The world needs Susan Boyle much more than she needs us. Go Susan! Oh, my two boy kitties asked me to say "Hi there1" to Pebbles. They're both big fans of the lovely Scottish feline.
Posted by susanfan1970 on June 24, 2009
You would not believe it that they are advertising a CD in Hong Kong and the CD has one "I dreamed a dream" by Elaine Paige, and it went "the song of Britain Got Talent", so I looked at the screen, the name Elaine Paige and one bit of the song came through. MY GOD. Susan is promoting Elaine Paige. Like many others, I had never heard of EP until I saw the clip of the audition.

The 10 songs...one of them definitely is "wind beneath my wings", "Think of me", "Both sides now" (not sure that's the right name of the song, and "you raise me up" (again, not sure the correct song's name.

BY THE WAY. Now that I read patriciasart 's post about Diversity. I recently found out from u-tube that Diversity actually WON the 2008 street dance in England, and then they went straight to the audition of BGT. I was very puzzled about this. WHY ON EARTH A SORT OF WINNER WOULD GO AGAIN? Which means that THEN X factor's winner could go to Britian's Got Talent?

If anyone has won a public competition, especially they became a WINNER, then they should not have even compete in the BGT!!! My point of view anyway. Susan THUS is still the WINNER. haha...

Posted by aroseblush on June 24, 2009
@joyceleo: Move over Oprah, here comes Simon. I agree with your opinion, it will be hard for Susan to extricate herself from Simon's huge entertainment conglomerate. But let's remember, she has an excellent business manager who is looking out for her best interests, This may not be bad news for Susan at all. It's always about money.

Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
I think the idea that Susan Boyle owes BGT something should be banished. Lots of people go on that show and don't become as famous as Susan, So just because Susan won second place on BGT doesn't mean she has to be a slave to their shows ( BGT,AGT,XFactor) She doesn't owe them anything ,its her fans that put her where she is.BGT is not even promoting Susan,just the opposite. All Susan has to do is get on stage and sing and her fans love her. Susan could have had a career years ago but she made a sacrifice for her parents. When she went on the BGT show ,she was discovered by the world not BGT. Anyone can go on that show, but Susan is the peoples choice. I hope she see's she doesn't need BGT ,they need her but its time for her to do her own thing. Staying with BGT,AGT or the XFactor will be an albatross tied around her neck.
Posted by calford on June 24, 2009
1:04 p.m. - CST - this is my post and answer to Piers re: Susan's name used for AGT ratings:

The spectacle I observed on AGT last evening was undeserving of a talent such as that of our fabulous Susan Boyle. Sorry Piers, she is not in the same league.
Posted by purplegothicqueen on June 24, 2009
What is wrong with her going on X-Factor? They are not going to ask her to compete with anyone just to give advice to other singers who want to make it big? Lots of previous acts do that. It definitely is not a slur on her to guest appear on that show (if indeed the rumour is true that she has been invited). As for America's Got Talent, well I took it to mean that she could be guest appearing in that as well.

I have just noted what someone said about "Diversity," now I am really surprised here. I thought that wouldn't be allowed. I mean poor Jamie Pugh got a battering just because he performed at the west end.
Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009

I posted this comment to that article about AGT and Piers (LOL)
Hey Piersy, I know you have Susan on your mind 24/7, and cannot help talking about her at every chance you get, but Diversity won BGT, did they not? It is clear though the “People’s Winner” is Miss Boyle, noting the receptions of rapture she is getting at all the BGT tour appearances…I know this is just publicity for AGT to get in the media, as everyone reads any article with the name “Susan Boyle” embedded in it.
I do not watch AGT, but I will watch if Miss Boyle appears as has been mentioned.
If she does come to Vegas, that may be a good time for you to do your promised dinner. It is kind of overdue….

It will go great on baseball hats and clothes, will be a great coat of arms over her fireplace in the manse. People in Mongolia will be able to pronouce it. She needs to get it copywrited.

Two thoughts. Susan can be a coach later. She's a performer. She wants to sing. Secondly, lets not trash Diversity. They're talented kids who lucked out and have repeatedly said that everybody knows who the real star of the tour is. As Susan said, "They're good lads".

patriciasart, once again you have said it exactly as it is. By trying to get her to do these things on AGT or any of their other shows, they are continuing to try to ride her coattails for their own selfish ends. Susan is bigger than them, she outclasses them. If she continues tied up with them, it keeps her own career from soaring into what it can be. I hope she and those advising her realize this. Make a cd with Simon's company, okay, but for the rest of her career, she needs to shake them off.

Hi Subo family.

A thought just occurred to me. Why can't the whole show get together and do a type of 'Oliver' show, where Jaheed (or whatever his name is) is Oliver, Stavros Flatly are Fagin and his son,and Aiden playing Dodger, Susan is Nancy, Diversity are the rest of the workhouse boys, and Shaun Smith is Bill Sykes. Grand could be the beadle with his granddaughter playing Oliver's girlfriend! I don't know where to place the sax player, but he could be the background music and the rest would make a terrific backdrop.

Just a thought, my imagination runs away with me sometimes
!

I thought Susan was mesmerising last night, and looking so beautiful.

I assume most of you have been looking at the latest still photos of Susan on the Playlist part of this site. There are some really nice ones of Susan with the Sax player. I didn't get to see his act (YET). He looks very nice and seems to be 'looking after' Susan. Maybe because they are both solo artists. Can anyone tell me his name please..so that I can check his act out.

He is obviously a lot younger than Susan but seems to enjoy having his photograph taken with her. And vice versa.

Posted by Lonnirose on June 24, 2009
Terijay, you rock!

Well here comes my two-cents worth for Susan, seeing as how we're all just speculating. I think any appearance on what amount to amateur shows are beneath Susan. She has proven herself to be a star of the highest magnitude, not part of a talent act. Along with recording her CD's and DVD's, I'd like to see Susan appear only in such high-class places as Carnegie Hall and similar places in other cities. A few guest appearances on a top-quality TV show would be good too, assumng there are any left. Vegas? I don't know. Having never been there I have no idea what kind of establishments are there, although I know a lot of big stars do appear in Vegas. Of course the decision about all that is up to her and for all we know her plans are already made. Just saying I'd like to see her treated like the superstar she is. High class all the way for Lady Susan.

Just my two cents, but I really like Diversity. This act is pure class!

I bet any car dealership these days would take $15 for the rights to SuBo and throw in an oil change.
Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009
I think it was The Sun who started the 'SuBo' thing (they use a capital B in the middle), probably because the average Sun reader is too stupid to remember two names, so they have to shorten them all to one! It's a wonder they don't have to rename the paper ThSu!

@ArielAZ: From that ad, looked to me as if they spelled their name "Subo,---not SuBo. So maybe that would be enough of a difference. I like your thought though!!---Clever!!

Thank you Paul for keeping up on the necessary "housekeeping" for this site. I'm truly sorry to hear that some posters have left this community because of hateful remarks by others. A big thank you to everyone who posts videos of Susan's performances and the tribute videos. IMHO the tribute videos capture the diversity of this community at it's best. Keep up the friendly, informative posts. They're worth the time it takes to read through everyday. : )
Posted by hipgrammy on June 24, 2009
OKAY I am now officially over the top over Susan. I have been coming here since the first week this site went up, have loved all of the videos and been so tickled with Teesiels(sp) reports. I thought that I would never join, just lurk, but here I am. Mainly why I am here is to thank everyone of the IT folks that bring us these wonderful videos. I, too, need multiple Susan fixes everyday. My former passion was cross stitching, but I have hardly picked up a piece - too busy watching all you folks rave about Susan. Well, Just thought I would say hi from Kentucky USA!!

@katladyd ,thats okay but this is a Susan Boyle fan site .Anyone who wants to praise Diversity can go the a Diversity fansite, just saying. Oops, excuse me ,I don't think they have one,my bad ;)

The reason why Diversity comes up along with Susan's name is for one thing ; they won but Susan is the star.Isn't that odd. Piers says Susan is the one to beat in his challenge to America. Susan has the limo,the lux. apt. the body guard,the record contract,the book deal ,the movie deal. Get the picutre? Strang "Is it not?"

The comparison is not to take anything away from Diversity's act in of itself ,but if BGT is a popularity contest ,Susan is the most popular act on that show and she is the one with world wide fame ,so I think her fans have just cause and wanting to blow her horn!

I have a beautiful English rose in my front yard. It's aroma is out of this world and the petals are exquisitely
perfection. Each time it blooms it is more beautiful. Susan is like this rose; with each performance, she evolves more towards perfection, in spite of the screaming crowds. People who do not appreciate flowers will not appreciate my roses. Likewise, people who do not appreciate real singing do not appreciate Susan's
voice. To take it further, people who are jealous of the talents of Tommy and Susan can turn cruel, like people who tear the petals off of roses. But my roses keeps on blooming, and Susan and, hopefully, Tommy will too.

Posted by pickled tink on June 24, 2009
Diversity are really nice boys who are always very nice about Susan, and really supportive of her. One of them says he stands in the wings to watch her every time she performs as she she is so awesome and amazing.

Well, I just watched Jamie Smith for the first time. Wow. I would love to hear Susan singing that song with him playing. It would be great. Susan singing with another singer....hmmm, no...but singing with Jamie playing the sax. That would be double the fun. NOW I understand previous posts where this possibility has been mentioned.

Posted by CanadianBill on June 24, 2009
Tommy doesn't want us saying 'Welcome back', so I won't - you'll just have to ignore this big smile on my face!

How about a peek into the future? I'm imagining the tour over, the CD out and selling millions.... its time for SUSAN BOYLE - her own Television special. With special guests Julian Smith and Elaine Page. Imagine.... at some point Susan starts singing 'Somewhere' and then Julian slowly walks on echoing her soaring voice with his sax, and they duet. She and her idol Elaine Page sharing a stage on Susan's show. I see Susan in about 3 costume changes, first something like her semi-final, second casual, in a 'home-like stage setting where she can chat to the audience and sing, and third, in full-glam, big star red sparkly dress, jewels, singing to the world. And I'm with Dan - a happy song or 3 where she can be joyful. Mmmmmm - hope it comes true! How about you?

PS If young fans want to call her SuBo, its fine with me, perhaps its a generational thing. What matters (seems to me) is that she's attracting a cross-generational audience and that is brilliant.

(covering my head from verbal bricks) SuBo--Roo sounds like an automobile brand.

@mclim I just HAD to watch Stavros and son again too....I just love the closeness they have....I wish I could have been in one of those audiences.

Susan was marvelous singing at Aberdeen last night. In the close up video I thought the teenagers making all the racquet while she was singing Memory were being very disrespectful to Susan and maybe even trying to rattle her so she'd forget where she was in the song. I hope, of course, that they were just very enthusiatic fans, but there are times to show it during the performance and at the end. Susan was so gracious and sweet about it. She did keep looking over at them and I felt nervous they were distracting her too much and maybe she would falter. But, she did not, being the true artist she is and sang in a glorious way. Bravo, Susan.

Howdy Folks,

Well, I think DJG-Scotland might just be as amazed as I am at how many of you seem to be so eager to jump on the
British Tabloid bandwagon. They've dubbed Susan many things...like "Hairy Angel" and "SuBu" and other things.

To me there just ain't nuthin' cute about it! Never has been and never will be. Her name is Susan Boyle. If we want to respect her...that's her name. If you don't, you make up nicknames... It's as simple as that.

I for one think we should show some respect to Susan...
and not fall into a British Tabloid Trap. To me The Sun
is about as low as it can get...

Not that I have an opinion on the matter...but to me
some tabloid genius thought Hobo...Subo...that's it! Well, that's not it, as far as I am concerned. Susan has
earned and deserves a whole lot more respect than that...
Her name is Susan Boyle.

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

My husband who is a musician just made a good point.

Susan will have life long fans !

@old dan:---But if Susan, herself, signs her autographs---and then writes "SuBo" underneath,--as Teesiel said she witnessed her doing,----then can't we assume that she likes the nickname?? Seems to me she wouldn't use it herself if she didn't like it.

@patriciasart: I agree. I would never pay just to see a dance group unless it was the American Ballet Group. I would pay over and over for a CD by Subo. I really would like a CD with her singing Jazz abd the Blues. After hearing her sing "Cry Me A River", I was sold.

Probably Susan likes the idea of having a nickname and sees it as affirmation of her acceptance as a "professional singer" as she wanted.

Howdy WAMcKinley,

To my way of thinkin' Susan has earned our respect. If
I ever have the honor to meet her, I'll be sayin' Good Afternoon, Miss Boyle"...not "Subo". We, her fans, decide
whether she has earned our respect or not. I'd never go
up to the Qween and say "Hi Qweenie". I would address her
properly. I'd never go up to the President and say "Hi Prez!" I'd say, Good Afternoon Mr. President.

Susan has earned the same kind of respect. Whether she
signs her autograph a certain way or not does not change that. We are the ones who must give her the respect she
deserves.

Wild Ol' Dan
Posted by DocRobbie on June 24, 2009
@fumingjane: Yes, Susan starts singing at 9pm in the evening shows that start at 7:30pm, like today's show in Birmingham. And it's only 8:23pm now in the UK. We will have to wait another 3 or 4 hours for the first videos to appear from today's show.
Posted by ammo on June 24, 2009
@DocRobbie thanks, that clip of Julian and Shaun is great.....NOW I can REALLY see him accompanying Susan. 'There's a Place' would be excellent....I know it's a kind of love song (and he has a lovely wife I see)...but it would be nice to see a duet with Susan looking at him and singing....him looking at her and playing... That would be amazing.

PWattis you have a good point - myself and a couple of other people posted info. on that Barrymore character who made fun of Susan on her 1995 audition on his "talent" show My Kind Of People and were attacked for posting negative info. I think people are too quick to attack others, last night a member was asking questions about how to access the videos etc. and could have been new to computers or maybe english wasn't his/her first language and they were accused of being a troll, also saw someone post in french and being told people would think they were a troll if they posted in french. Thanks for your post anyway: "think how someone else might feel to be attacked by another fan. This has happened several times on this site.

To all: re the duet with Julian Smith. I remember Susan mentioning somewhere in an older video that "Somewhere" was one of her mother's favorite songs---and that she, herself, liked it, too.

I just finished watching America's Got Talent. YAWN!!!! BORING!!! I did watch all of the auditions for BGT and enjoyed them immensely. Not sure why AGT didn't do it for me. I think, partly, because I love to watch Amanda and Simon as judges. I'm not a big fan of David Hass... Ms. Osbourne is okay but no Amanda. Clearly, AGT is hoping to find another Susan Boyle. All the interviews with the judges talk about how they are looking for someone "with a dream".

It's pretty clear that these talent shows are the ONLY opportunity for a lot of people. A lot of people from a background of poverty. Susan Boyle is a once in a lifetime talent. AGT will not find another Susan Boyle. Just my two cents.

The close up videos of Susan in Aberdeen are wonderful. Thanks to you posters for bringing them here.

patriciasart you are right that BGT is a circus act - AGT is also, I just caught the last half of it last night but apparently earlier on they had a dog act, what does that say about the quality of talent on it? They also had Sharon Osbourne as a judge, have never watched it before but of course would if Susan was on.

Some thoughts on Miss Susan Boyle: Yes the people and enterprises that are getting rich off of Miss Boyle are numereous, not to mention the international celebrity status they are also getting. But that is the nature of game and showbusiness. Miss Boyle will benefit financially in amounts that will shock not only her but most people. It will happen and rather quickly, my guess is six months to a year and she will have Millions. Of course this is not neccessarily a good thing but it is going to happen. As far as the tour goes, Miss boyle is getting valuable experience performing in front of live audiences, which many of you have pointed out she is getting better and better. Do I think Mr. Cowell or Mr. Morgan are evil people pushing her to the limits? No. They are both in the business of showbusiness, the very business Miss Boyle said was her dream to be in, ala a professional singer. Miss Boyle is probably better off having them involved in her career than not. Miss Boyle, if you've noticed, is part of a large family with far reaching professional experience, therefore I don't believe that we need worry about her professional career. I am also of the opinion that Miss Boyle, with the advice of the professional support group that is building around her, is a very capable and quick learner even with her history of early learning disabilities. Her comments about baby steps are very telling of her wisdom. If I had one reservation it would be all the attention and money that she will be getting - I only hope that it makes her happy. I, personally, am waiting for her, if she wants to, to give an in depth interview. I love her expressing her views as m uch as I love her singing. I think she may surprise many with her version of the events and the poeple around her, although she most likely, because of the fine lady she is, would not be negative in what she has to say and I suspect her anserws would be rather short as is her nature. If her dream of being a professional singer includes performing in front of a live audience, and I believe it does based on how well she is doing on the BGT Tour, then Vegas, New York and every major city in the world will be her stage. Yes, there will be a movie about her life but She is still living the ending to that movie. Yes there will be a book. Yes CD's a lot more than ONE or two but many and I'll buy them all.
I have tried to analyis what it is exactly that has made her so famous and I can not. Is she a great singer? In my opinion, YES. Is she a wonderful human being? In my opinion, YES. There is beyond all that a power in her voice that probably comes from all the years and experiences of her life. It is the totality of Miss Susan Boyle that I love. I wish her well and happiness however she chooses to live the rest of her life. I feel lucky to have had this much of what she has shared with all of us to this point. I am also indedted to Simon Cowell and Britians Got Talent because I am certain, without that opportunity I would not have had the pleasure of Miss Susan Boyle.

@Aroseblush, I agree. Susan thrives from the love of her audience. She connects in a powerful way and it's a beautiful thing to see!

@hipgrammy There are a lot of 'older' fans here.

To all: it is so nice that Susan has lots of young fans too. They have taken to her. They probably all have a member or two in their own families, who Susan reminds them of...so they feel close to her and comfortable. Many people in my family had beautiful voices...not Susan's quality of course, and we used to have family get togethers where family members took turns singing.....no t.v.s back then. They sang in clubs too. Sadly they are not around anymore....but Susan reminds me of them. My nana did a hilarious monologue....Memories.....aah...cue for a song.....

BETHINUSA, an antique red rose bush is absolutely stunning in looks, has big beautiful flowers that smell heavenly. I have one in my yaer. It has the best fragrence from mid spring to late fall.
Posted by ammo on June 24, 2009
What I meant to add is that the younger people can probably identify more with Susan than with the 'Stars' we see all 'dolled up' on t.v. etc. They can aspire to be like her in many ways....she is a really great role model for them.
Posted by Agnes S on June 24, 2009

aliz, I was only thinking pink because it reminds me of the blush in Susan's cheeks. A red rose would also be *so* appropriate since it is a symbol of love and beauty.

Hey Tommy, you are not the first one to post the old one because YouTube has it listed as the 24th - no big deal. You can also tell it is two weeks ago, because Miss Boyle has lost like 5-10 pounds since then, and her dress is now hanging off her (LOL)

aroseblush glad she gave it to you and procotious pom, I bet. My best friend and two peeks and she gave me a russian blue kitten after my missionary trip to russia. Well those puppies taught my kitty to act like a dog. He played fetch and brought the ball back to you, he stole food fom plates or the table, loved popcorn, came running any time he heard that popcorn being unwrapped, And due to his being a cat with great jumping skills would bob for corn on the cob from the pan and run around the house with it and then tease you to try to get it from him. He was too cute. You would have been laughing at him all the time. i sure have. Most people thought he was beautiful to look at to. Like that wee one of yours.

Wow I can't believe the Piers site posted my comment about him lying around smelling like a hamburger,cool!

http://www.officialpiersmorgan.com/2009/06/15/not-for-vegetarians/comment-page-2/#comment-6144

I just commented again with regard to his challenge to beat Susan on AGT , I was tackful :

Okay Piers I like you best of all the judges.Doesn't everyone. Your the most personable one and I know you sincerly admire and respect Susan. I also know your not the boss of BGT . But yours is the only place associated with BGT where Susan fans can post and express thier views. I'm glad Susan was discover on your show but I really hope she can move forward now. I as well as all her fans would like to see her perform before her own audience and not play second fiddle to anyone including BGT.
Since Diversity won BGT , why do you challenge America to beat Susan? Why do you continue to use Susan Boyle to get ratings for AGT. Let her go,move on. She is bigger than a talent show now.
Susan needs her own publicist who works to promote her not BGT or AGT . Its about Susan now.

Posted by ZOEY on June 24, 2009
Yep, thought that video was familiar. If / when there is a video from today, sure someone will get it to us. So many videos on YouTube. Easy to pull the wrong one, especially when this would be their second stop in Birmingham. Not to worry Tommy!! Thanks a lot for all you do! Good Day all.

That was a beautiful post. Very thoughtful. The only thing I could add to it that you intimated but not said, is 'soul'. We are picking up on Susan's soulself, perhaps as a composite of her early years, which combines with everything that she is today. The 'soul' never lies.

aliz, I thought my 22 lb. Maine Coon mix was weird because he likes popcorn! He also likes bread and potato chips. I don't know what he's mixed with; his hair is long and extremely fine, softer than cashmere. It floats in the air. It's not like the normal Maine Coon fur at all.

Canadian Bill, I am with geramsterdam...I immediately noticed the red dress you had put on the Susan icon and I LOVED it!!! Man, I wish they would do that in real life. Though the silver dress is "classy", I would think she would absolutely pop with vibrance in that red. She looked so great in the brown outfit she wore for the semis that I was really disappointed to see her in something which appeared drab in comparison for the finals and this tour.

Tommy, wonderful to have you here. You are the core and though I do not post much, I really appreciate all your hard work.

Teesiel, thank you for finding such fantastic close-ups of Susan at Aberdeen. I am among those who love to see her hairdo, make-up and especially her exquisite facial expressions.

About AGT, my 2 bits (which is not actually worth 2 bits in this economy) is that Susan should decide if it is worth it to her to appear. She will use THEM, not them using HER!!!! It could be that making an appearance in August would be a memory jogger in setting up her CD sales...

@patriciasart and @aliz, both my cats are Maine Coon mixes that we rescued. One is smoky gray, the one who likes popcorn, and he is angelic. The other one is just as big with orange and cream fur; he is a character, and was the alpha male in our household until the gray one came along. The gray came to us fully "intact" and loaded with testosterone. We had 4 cats at the time and he sorted them out in no time!

He reminds me of Susan in that way, "nae cr*p!"
Posted by RubyRose on June 24, 2009
PWattis and HereToday, I agree with you both. I believe, though, that some of the tension that arises between us comes from being jammed into tight little blogs that weren't really meant to hold such a variety of fans as we are. It's almost as if we've been experiencing standing-room only in a tightly packed bus for several weeks. I have faith, though, that our new forum will give us all plenty of space to move around in while allowing others to enjoy their own Susaspace in their own way.

I also hope that our friends who are more comfortable in their own languages will be able to start their own conversations in perfect freedom on the new forum, as long as they adhere to our site standards. Part of the fun of this Susavillage is that we're from many different lands and can enjoy our common bond in Susan, where we had no such bond, before. We have something interesting to talk about with people from other cultures, when we may not have ever had anything particular to say before, to those who seem so different from ourselves.

Susan has opened up our own world to us in a way we've never experienced. We should celebrate our individuality when we come together to celebrate our common bond...Susan!

No fansite can be all things to all people - it would be foolish to expect that. However, we must also bear in mind that everyone benefits from having a little variety in their lives.

I guess the American entertainment industry is somewhat dumbfounded....what can we do to have one of ours hit 300 million utube hits....one thing for sure I don't think anyone can make something like this happen ....it may occur sometime in the future but only when you least expect it.

@HAPPY....I understand what you mean. I was brought up with my Children's Bible, and I thought Susan reminded me of the (I was going to say 'photographs' that's probably what I thought they were as a child) pictures of Jesus holding out his arms with the light shining out behind him.

My beliefs are private....but I do understand what you mean...I try to learn about ALL faiths, religions etc.

I don't know. I have Vista and both Windows Media and RealPlayer. I am not all that computer savvy, but someone showed me how to do it. All I know is that when I right-click on a video, I get an option to "Download this video to RealPlayer". It never asks me if I want to download to Windows media. Maybe some with more computer smarts knows how to download to Windows Media.

I think holding her arms out is her way of giving us a big hug. Ans when she holds one arm out it is like she is saying welcome all on the right and left of her, and then she holds both arms out to the center saying welcome to all those in front of her.

@jayhawk fan, I am too cheap to pay $49 for the upgrade. (Saving my money for Susan's CDs). I haven't tried to make DVDs yet. My husband thinks I am obsessed with Susan Boyle as it is, so I am sticking to the computer for my daily doses of Susan.

@Waldog, BGT, Simon and Piers have been and continue to be instrumental to her success and I am grateful to the trio for their support. I recently reviewed the first video, very first, and it was interesting to watch Simon's gears clicking after Susan had left the stage.
I think it's great she has many names, nicknames have their place and SuBo is a token of affection, not a sign of disrespect, but I understand, I would never address in person as SuBo. The money and fame are going to be challenges. But, all in all, things are going smoothly.
I love how the tour has helped her to develop a rapport with the audience and highlighted her sense of humor.

HereToday
Re the dog act on AGT. Says something about the show that apparently that was the best thing on last night. I surfed back and forth and did see the dog and he was cute as can be, but it was a dog act for heaven's sake. Judging by some of the other acts, they would do well do bill it as America's Got Circus Acts.
I think Piers is smarmy and Simon is an egomaniac. That said, however, if it were not for the format and the program of BGT, the world would not have Susan Boyle and in my book that does cover a multitude of "sins".

Thanks for the explanation to upload an Avitar. I put it on "Notebook", so I can do the process properly. Slow learner, don't ya' know.LOL
I have been away from the fansite for a while..so back now nd had not sent my post from earlier. Kept it open to add to.
I would like to join with others to plead that the Powers that Be, involved in BGT let Susan fly away on her own flight path. I watched some of AGT last night...pathetic, although some of the acts were so-so. But it is a CIRCUS!!! Please don't encourage her to take part in that. I don't know a thing about XFactor, but I get the impression it is similar to BGT and AGT. Not in Susan's class at all! She owes that gang not one thing now and they have profitted by her amazing "fan-ability".

Could we start lobbying Simon,Piers et al to help her on her way out of the talent shows? I am sure she has a solid fan base now, and with her CD in the works, she will be OK on her own....Wat d'y all think?

Thanks to Susan-boyle.com blog site. My day:
1. Glare at alarm clock but then dash to computer and get all happy at the Susanews.
2. Get 7 yr old grandniece ready for the day and rejoice that she appreciates Susan's singing.
3. Dash to take back yesterday's work to the law firm and pick up todays. (resenting the time away from the computer all the way.)
4. Try to produce work documents: Input one, send it to print and 10 minutes later realize the printer ran out of paper. How did 10 minutes go by???
5. Repeat point 4 all day while watching for word of our wonderful singer's next "Wowing of the Crowds."
6. Hopefully go to bed at a reasonable hour (with the work not finished I'm sure) to repeat it all tomorrow. YEA! Go Susan!

What a happy day I've had, listening to our Susan and checking the post and also cutting out a shirt for a fringe festival my daughter's participating in.

I prefer Susan Boyle to Su bo. But, I can respect other's. It might be the circumstances too. If we were at a party and laughing, one might say it, like she said 'Oh, Simon' during the audition.

Susan's arms are definitely a warm welcoming gesture. I remember an early video when she went out to the gate to see the children who were screaming at her and she opened her arms to them.

It's loving; it's graceful and it's Susan. Back to the sewing machine.

Whoah there just a minute jordie - first off all the reports about AGT and X factor refer to Susan being INVITED she does not have to do these shows, no one will be holding a gun to her head. It will be HER decision. I think we need to get this in perspective here and stop imagining some sort of svengali carryings on. Susan is no fool and yet folk talk as if she is and if she has to be protected. if Susan decides SHE wants to do these shows then we have to respect and to accept that.

I have been out for the day and find I am behind over 400 posts. How do you all manage to keep up with all that is going on? First thing I do do though, is listen to the latest video and I cannot get enough of the close ups from Aberdeen. I would love to hear her speaking voice again. Am I right in thinking that the last time we heard her speak was after the finals of BGT until Wembley last Sunday and she asked if she could start again and "L Love You Too!" Just loved hearing her.
Posted by terijay on June 24, 2009
Bernicer- very funny- keep posting. you are a welcome addition here...and you also think Piers Morgan has a soft spot for Miss Boyle, like me and Lonnie Rose and others here also do....I am an INFJ on the Briggs Meyer personality test- Only 1% of the population scores in that area.. funny, all my ex BF's also scored as INFJS- so, I think Susan is also an INFJ, and she sees "something" in piers morgan that many do not see- maybe even Piersy himself...of course she could do better than he- but, if she likes him? so what? Whatever makes her boat float and go on each baby step along this amazing ride of just two and half MONTHS, she is amazing beyond belief to me

Hi Aliz☺
PMFJI. We, or let me speak for myself,I always find it nice to meet someone from my own country somewhere else on the planet.

Did you know that this blogs has a possibility to translate most of the foreign languages spoken here? When you enter the site, there is a collection of little flags, on the left.

That's why I have put on our flag as my avatar. So in case I happen to say something in dutch you can hit the button with the red/white/blue flag and get the translation. Isn't that nice?
That's why I understood it's ok to speak dutch *once in a while*,because of the translation buttons☺

Within a few week you'll know an extra lot of foreign words,picked up, on the blog, I did anyway.Folks speak e.g. spanish, french, swedish, here I have noticed.☺
Fleur is a nice dutch name (means 'flower'), btw☺

Daag (=bye bye) Ger Amsterdam/Netherlands☺

I challenged a comment made on an article this morning which was
posted by Google as a "Google Alert"(re Susan Boyle which I subscribed to. It was by someone who entered into the subject of "learning disability and brain damaged..not in so many words saying that Susan was in that catagory, but explaining how the conditions can affect a person? I slappped off a challenge to her comments...Just told her to lay off those adjectives, period, and that they did not apply to OurSusan. I also said that the tabloids were trashoids and that we, in her LARGE fanclub do not support any such derogatory remarks and counter them as each comes to our attention by contacting the publishers etc. So there. I did it and I am glad!!!!

Love all the tulips from holland they are simply lovely.

geramsterdam ~ Please contact our dear Natalie and explain my comment to her. I was horrified when she was confused over what I said. I have written her privately to explain, but if she heard it in Dutch, perhaps she may understand an explanation better. I was defending the use of other languages in our blog, I was trying to ask other people to be glad to hear from other countries. Natalie understood me to say just the opposite. I feel horrible about it, and would have written you privately if I could have done so. Feel free to contact me through the site. I very much want Natalie to feel completely free to speak in whatever language she chooses! I tried to express that to her. I apologize sincerely if I have caused any hurt feelings. It was a misunderstanding.

It is late and I am going to bed. If there is anything you feel that I can do to help clear up the misunderstanding, please don't hesitate to write me privately and I will answer first off in the morning.

On the subject of nicknames for Susan. I can remember her standing up there before the judges and all at the Auditions and she said very perkily, "My name is Susan Boyle". So Susan it is in my books. She is proud of her name, so she shall be "Susan Boyle" as far as I am concerned, until we find out, at least, is she likes SoBo as a nick....Later you guys.

@Jayhawk fan and chrisk: Re RealPlayer. Absolutely nothing is intuitive on this Mac. I did find that when I click on the RealPlayer icon on the toolbar, a little "player" box appears with an assortment of buttons, boxes, a sliding thingy that would move across the box if a playing was in progress. If you look reeeeeeeeeal closely, one of the tiny little boxes therein has a down arrow in the middle of it. "AH,"---I say to myself,---"Could that possibly mean 'download??'" I hit it---and sure enough,--a "download box" pops up and lets me download the video. Some things are easy. Some are more complicated. Trust a computer to totally confound the hell out of any normal human being!! Thanks, both of you, for your help.

Cruissing over the internet among a pile of letters from Uganda I found this little piece of comment which is a real joy to read

"But, I guess it’s a generational thing because even abroad the likes of Rihanna and Beyonce cannot be rated as real talents at the level of say Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross, or even the vocal talent of the British Idol Susan Boyle. There shall never be a substitute for good music and that’s why oldies dominate the music themes of most clubs in town and probably the reason most people listen to Radio One. We are yet to see the real musicians!

She used to sell her needle point all over the state. One of her favorite customers was Rosie Greer the football player. He did some great work too. Her daughter owned the shop after she passed away. She used to give me Joan Walsh Anglen books. Still have them as a matter of fact. She married my gradnfather Harry Anderson. My grandmother was a great painter, his first wife Leta Duffy Anderson.

@Retired In Flat Broke Kalifornia: Yes, this thexfactorUK09 YouTube guy is uploading other imposter videos too. For instance he just uploaded a Memory by Susan titled "Susan Boyle LIVE" that is an exact copy of the Memory by Susan in Wembley Arena (matinee performance) posted by funksensations, titled "Susan Boyle LIVE @ Wembley 21/06/09 - Britains Got Talent".

You know today when I couldn't get on the internet I listened to my cassette of susan and have thought, My she must really be in shock from meeting elaine paige the one she adores., and talking to so many people. The large audience and their wonderful acceptance must really be amazing to her, especially since coming from her small quant little town. It is truely a whirlwind to her.

Speaking of which DocRobbie, the matinee performance at Wembley has inched it's way up to the #2 slot of my all time favorites, close behind the Audition of IDAD.

So, here goes my update top 5. 1) Audition IDAD 2) Memory Wembley Matinee) 3) Memory and IDAD that Tiesel posted. 4) My Heart Will Go On sung on Larry King Live 5) Whistle Down The Wind sung on MSNBC I think it was.

@DocRobbie: Well, it WAS a "Live" performance. At least they got THAT part right!! I suppose that's why they feel justified in posting it as "Susan Boyle LIVE!!" But it sure throws a lot of people off!-------(c:

I do think that it is natural to the young ones, though, for they have known nothing else but computer technology and the speed with which they text on their mobiles is mind-boggling! They seem to know so much about how to use all the latest gadgets. I can't keep up, although I do pride myself that, even in my maturing years, I can still do quite a lot! Oh, well, tempus fugit!

@pottedferne I was shopping with my daughter on Monday...songs were playing in the stores...as they do...and I kept asking my daughter "Is that Susan Boyle singing Memory?" Honestly, that is what I could hear. My daughter kept saying 'NO' because it happened more than once in more than one store.

Wow,poor Susan, everyone is trying to tell her what to do. I just read this article, someone referr to it here before but I never read it. I thought Susan looked happy in her performances. Maybe this priest has his own ideas. I don't think she will follow his advice.That's what she was trying to get away from. Being pigeoned holed. She said her dream was to sing like Elaine Paige . Well I guess this priest will figure it out in time.

Posted by joyceleo on June 24, 2009
LOL Ammo, about keeping your counselor up to date on Susan. Here's one counselor who keeps up with Susan all on her own! Everybody loves Susan. I only want the best for her and that's why I'm concerned about her management when she becomes the world's biggest star. The management team must put the STAR's interest and well being FIRST, not their own interests. Until I clearly see that THAT is so, I will continue to question the managment of Susan. Perhaps, if Elvis had had a more compatible manager than Parker proved to be, she might be alive today. More power to Susan!

@joyceleo Good for you counsellor. I hear you on the Elvis front....He SHOULD have had people caring for him and I do believe, if he had, we would be enjoying his voice (even if it was different) today. So sad.

@susahelen....so now I have to tell my doctor AND my counsellor thsat I have a 'brain worm'. I have had to fill in many questionaires (sp?) during the past couple of years. They always have ONE particular question..."Do you hear voices?" I NEVER did until NOW....a bit scared to tell my counsellor...but he'll probably get a kick out of it.....:)

@BMS: About the circle of dots trying to play the IDAD video on YouTube: That means either that YouTube is overloaded, or has a technical glitch, or your network connection is too slow. Does it play ANY of the video, or is there just a frozen screen with the circle of dots?

If it plays just some of the video but keeps on freezing, you can click on the "Pause" button (looks like this: (||) at the bottom left of the video). The "Pause" button should then change to a "Play" button. There is a light pink progress bar that should advance show how much of the video has been downloaded to your computer. When the pink bar is completely over to the right edge, click on the "Play" button, and the video should play without sticking.

If the moving circle of dots never goes away and the video is frozen, you might click on the "HQ" button if there is one, to unstick the video. If that doesn't work,
try refreshing the web page or restarting your web browser. Also try different videos, to see they are also stuck. If that still doesn't work, try the video at another time.

I think the truth about Father Tim, and I haven't read him other what is posted here, is that he is just another one trying to get big publicity for himself by using Susan's name. Anyone who goes in the news, or on the internet, with these kind of stories about Susan is just like the tabloids. He is trying to market himself. The more publicity he gets and the more responses the more he will keep writing these type articles. We should ignore him just like we do the tabloids.

Posted by HereToday on June 24, 2009
@ca0911 you are right, if it wasn't for BGT we wouldn't know about Susan, BGT and AGT are a channel for people who wouldn't otherwise be able to get exposure, guess I was just shocked that AGT would have a dog act, haven't watched it before and thought it would be people singing and maybe dancing. I did think the last act, the 3 kids who started singing to their mother who was in a coma due to a car accident were really good.

re: translations/tulips from The Netherlands☺

You know I am afraid I have to disapoint you. I tried the blog to be translated into chinese --> server down. Tried italian--> server down. Looked for an UK or USA flag, to try romanian or dutch into english...flags are not there.

So the translation only works *one* way, from english to <one of the flag/countrie> ☺ Well, you can try it for fun.

So sorry. Maybe on the new forum. Until then I'll write (or *try* to write) in english. Forgive me the spelling mistakes ☺
How nice that you had such fun with Fleur and her family.Did she ever bring you 'stroopwafels'? Those are special dutch cookies, very sweet with syrup/treacle between two layers.I think Susan will like them with her tea.

The dutch tulips are great aren't they.Hopes she comes to our country one day!
Maybe The Netherlands should name a beautiful tulip after Susan or, even better in the UK, a nice fragrant rose. What colour would she like, though?
Didn't see any roses or other flowers in her garden.Maybe Teesiel knows☺

Yet, she is a grown woman on this video. Its a great video too. Someone did a good job putting it together. Here is the link for it. Remember she was 6 when he died. Yeah, Susan and Elvis could definitely do a duet.

That's why the audience just rolled their eyes when Susan came on. There was no expectation for her to be anything like the incredible singer that she is. She was just another act in a long line of goof balls.

Posted by DJG-Scotland on June 24, 2009

For those who don't have it, I have uploaded an mp3 of Susan's 'Killing Me Softly' demo tape. I have provided two versions of this. One is the original version straight off the demo tape (with original 'analogue whistle' and background hiss), and the other is a heavily processed version I have prepared. This uses a variety of filters to remove the background noises, along with a stereo expansion technique to create a more 3D soundscape. In this, I have positioned Susan's voice to the distant right channel. This processed version won't be to everyone's tastes, which is why the original is also included! If you play the processed version in Windows Media Player, you should turn SRS WOW off otherwise it will sound weird! The processed version will sound better through speakers rather than headphones.

I have ZIPped the two mp3 files into a single ZIP (to unzip in XP/Vista: right-click on the .zip file, then select 'Extract All'), which is now available for you to download 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).

Tommy, glad to see you never left.
So any new news about Miss Boyle? Did she perform today? I've been away all afternoon with my preschooler on her final day of school. We went to the beach and all I could think about was the wonderful Susan and a lot of the parents at the gathering think highly of her too. It was nice to talk to parents my age (30-45) that like her a lot. I plugged this place to visit, and told them that it's a fansite just for Susan Boyle. I don't know if they will visit here but I hope they do.

I know I can't share my own photography here but once I get the beach day photos up and running I will link it because I love taking nature photography and I always love to share my work.

Take care ya'll, hope you have a good day.

@squeaky bird I did see the guy on BGT with the drilling his nose act - think it was on a youtube video, really bizarre, but didn't realize that they also had a dog act. Have never watched these shows before, just tuned in when they showed Susan on the local news here a couple of times due to her popularity. Guess we should be thankful for these kinds of shows, they do expose rare talent at times. I remember seeing an earlier post - think it was on youtube - from a British citizen calling BGT a freakshow. That is going a bit too far in my opinion.

@WAMcKinley, I was kind of wondering would Susan want to do a duet with Elvis,is she a fan of his music. After all he is before her time. I'm older than Susan (51) and Elvis (began his career in 1953)is before my time. Susan was a fan of Donney Osmond ( began in 1974).

Hey darcey, I live in Monroe Nc. I am in charlotte all the time.If susan comes any where near we will have to meet and get a group to go see her. Do you ever see Carolina Voices Shows (living christmas tree)?

Things I've realized since joining this fansite:
1. I can hear my adult kids' eyes roll before I even finish the word Susan. Know they're thinking "Mom's gone round the bend."
2. Hmm..two big shedding dogs and a vacuum that is gathering cobwebs is a clear indicator they may be right!
3. I'm considering buying 10 more pairs of undies to avoid laundry, but that would involve leaving the computer too.
4. Do not try to visualize Susan's performances while trying to merge onto a 4 lane interstate highway!!!!!!!
5. It is possible to forget to eat!

I am laughing thinking about Susan singing with Hank Williams Jr. I just can't picture that one. I like Hank well enough I just can't see them two together. Would she sing harmony while he sings about "Liking women a little on the trashy side"......Imagine that....LOL

LOL, ya, I suggested it WAMMcKinley. His voice can give you shivers if you ever seen him live. But, it was more being silly. But, I've still imagined her doing a duet with many, in different musical categories. I think that's why so many different musical tastes have come here because Susan's voice can touch a huge array of different musical categories. I've even seen interviews of kids that's seen her say she's awsome.

@mcclim, thanks for the link to Elvis and Martina McBride. Very nicely done. I enjoyed it, although I'm not the biggest Elvis fan, having grown up a Beatlemaniac.

@beachgal122 and @bernicer, thanks for the info, I'll check those duets out later.

@patricasart, yes I wonder too what Susan thinks of Elvis.

DocRobbie I am 57 so I was a big Beatles fan myself. But my sister who is 10 years older than I, loved Elvis and after listening to him over and over for years I kind of got addicted too. Not to mention I saw him do live performances twice. Once in Vegas and once right before he died in Columbus, Ohio. His voice was just as strong then as it had been years earlier in Vegas.
Posted by Darcey K on June 24, 2009
Thanks Tommy and Aliz cool, I sure hope Susan comes to Charlotte. We don't go to a lot of events because of my health, I don't do crowds. But, when Anne Murray came last year we went and I wore a mask the whole time, well worth it as Susan would say. I would go see Susan in a heart beat. I have two huge posters my husband made for me (nope I am not 14) but doesn't matter, I like looking at her, and I play her on the CD player all the time, and made a tape for my car and that is all I have on anymore, Susan singing!!!! I can't wait for her to come here so we can see her on TV hopefully. I can't imagine a network not picking up her doing a show, can anyone????

Posted by vicki smith on June 24, 2009
MY FELLOW-SUSANITES, Susanistas, and Susaneers:

I have seen a number of posts that sadden me: why must we keep comparing Susan to others (or others to Susan)? How can another person's talent diminish hers?

There are going to be fine performers that perform on these shows throughout the years- should they be diminished in our eyes to lift up Susan? You can bet there are many who have auditioned for AGT who love Susan; how would it be if one (or more) of them were to come to this site only to find themselves put down by other of Susan's fans? How do you think Susan would feel if she saw others were being hurt because of her?

Again, Susan's talent doesn't diminish just because other people have talent, and if we put others down, doesn't it diminish her to say she's better than other people who aren't that good to begin with?

Let's let Susan's beauteous soul shine forth on its own and sing her praises without engaging in this-please?

DocRobie: Many thanks for the help with my question re the freezing videos. Everything works fine now. Thanks again. It is amazing what I have learned, and am now doing, in the short time since Susan came along. I have joined a fan club site, taken part in a Blog, reviewed videos and pictures, learned something about You Tube, figured how all the false stories reported in tabloids get around, (never particularly read any tabloid stories before). My time is now mostly devoted to being a Susan Watcher.

Thanks again DocRobbie from a very illiterate computer user.

"Getting Perspective" A while back someone said we wouldn't know about Susan were it not for BGT but to that I say I was born in a hospital too but I didn't stay there very long . A star was born on BGT ,lets not be grateful to BGT ,lets be grateful to Susan for deciding to go on the show and giving us an opportunity to choose her as the person we choose to to inspire us,entertain us,console us ,make us happy,all the things music does for people. When Susan sings her voice wins you over. You've got to love her.

Posted by Bobber2 on June 24, 2009
Vicki Smith I totally agree with you...it can be a vicious demeaning thing for people to say this one is better then that....ultimately when you get down to it it's really a matter of opinion....perhaps a good way to think about it is which one moves one to enjoy a musical piece. That answer might be different for various people and good isn't always defined by how many CD's are sold. Each individual decides that.
Posted by ML on June 24, 2009
I have watched the Aberdeen Memory performance more times than I care to admit. LOL Susan is just so fantastic with her young fans. I know they react differently from how we older fans would, but you can tell she "gets" that they love her and she is very gracious to them.

Susan just keeps getting better and better and more confident. Just goes to show you all the naysayers were wrong. Nothing fragile about that lassie. She has made it through this tour and gained from it. I'm so excited and pleased for her.

Now, for the CD!

Posted by squeaky_bird on June 24, 2009
I would love to see Susan Boyle teamed up with Judy Garland (if that were possible). There is a performance where Judy is getting such a reaction from the audience wanting her to sing all of their favorites. She shouts back at them, "We'll stay all night. I'll sing all of them". At least something like that. Susan is great with her audience and reminds me of Judy Garland. I saw Liza at Carnegie Hall years ago but she doesn't have the magic with her audience like her mother had. At least, that's my opinion.

You are handling everything so well. I think it is wise to rest yourself and take the time no matter what anyone thinks. You have so much to offer everyone. The gift of your beautiful voice and that even now that you are famous you aren't trying to make us all think you are perfect with smoke and mirrors like a lot celebrities do.

Posted by squeaky_bird on June 24, 2009
@Father Tim's comments. I have to say I am astounded at the disconnect between Father Tim's comments regarding Susan and how she should get away from "the money changers" etc. I just watched her semi-final performance and my jaw just dropped when she said how people saw her as this worthless person. Even if she couldn't carry a tune she would still be worthwhile. Her church failed her. I'm glad she's living her dream. She is getting stronger by the day.

@Waldog, you made some beautiful commments and I agree with very much of what you say. You are right that if it were not for Simon and BGT we probably would not have heard of Susan. However, as I have stated before I think that it is unfortunate that that was the vehicle through which Susan got her break. I just can't help but think that Susan has had to pay a very high price for it , more so than other BGT contestants (e.g. Paul Potts). And even though I'm sure Susan will be gracious and grateful when she gets the chance to tell her side of things, I just can't ever let them off the hook. I don't think they are evil, but I don't think that they have Susan's best interests at heart.

I'm also behind in housework. I don't get it done.

A few nights ago, I dream that we had an unofficial photo shoot and she allowed me to photograph Pebbles. It's so sad that when I wake up I wanna cry because that would be so much fun. But reality bites and I snap back to my old work and routine. Or lack there of.

By the time I was really aware of Judy Garland, she was so drugg-addled and alcohol-dependent, it was painful to watch her perform. I loved her earlier movies when she was still little more than a girl,---Easter Parade, etc.--- and still relatively healthy. She was really great! But later on, her voice was nearly pure vibrato and quavery,---and it hurt to watch her face twitch and she'd get kind of goofy on some programs, like she was high. Probably was, poor little thing. So I can't say I really enjoyed Judy Garland's singing style ----and daughter Liza, unfortunately followed her mother down the same drug and alcohol trail. Tough business for many entertainers---and they started Judy early on the uppers and downers.

Carnegie61: Didn't mean to offend anyone,---it's just my opinion. I was never a big fan of really heavy vibrato in a singer's voice or style;---and both Judy and Liza have that in spades,-----added to kind of a manic quality that it's hard to define. But if you watch, you can get what I'm saying. I have all the sympathy in the world for Garland and what she was put through as a child for the sake of the "industry." Just never cared for her singing style.

080137 and superfan teesiel, you da humans for sure! missed it b/c owner's TV went dead on june 12, but read on another blog that AGT Osborne human said something like "you could find a Susan Boyle in any church choir." no disrespect to anyone in church, but whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? previously liked her a lot for the generally kind way she treated contestants on past AGT, but that was a truly thoughtless remark. spoken just to pump up interest in AGT? Re. Susan in Aberdeen, goodness, how could you even keep it together, 080137, to film? lovebites would be witless if so close. noticed in the current call for a previous appearance, Gusan gracefully and respectfully stood at the back of the group while the others cavorted on stage. love that lady, she has so much class. muah, muah, muah, Susan. licks & ovebites to y'all, san antonio, tx 7:59PM

Somebody in the chat room said that she went to the Birmingham site and Susan wasn't listed on the card of performers. Didn't she sing there tonight?

I greatly disagree with Sharon Osbourne. But that's okay, we have different taste in other areas, too, such as husbands.

@mdillow31....never thought I would meet up with her again in cyberspace.........lol.....yep, she sent me an email....She LOVES SUSAN!!!! Imagine that...lol

(coming back for a moment) @DocRobbie & TommyUSA; Any REALLY horrid chance nobody from audience had "presence of mind" to record any of Susan's Birmingham performances today? Begs BIG question in my mind as well: Is BGT even doing "documentary" recording of her et.al. performances during the road tour? Just asking...Chao for now.
Posted by bernicer on June 24, 2009
sorry typo "Thai's" should be That's. It's been a loooong day

I would like to see another video, but Susan has earned another day off. Especially since she already sang in Birmingham.

Posted by Carnegie61 on June 24, 2009
After this tour is over....we won't know what Susan is doing every day. Eeck!! Maybe she could start a little blog here and check in with us everyday. Just to let us know how she (and Pebbles) are doing.

I can see it now. One entry could be: "Elaine (Paige) and I went out to lunch. Sandwiches were a touch dry, but the conversaton was fantastic."

WAMcKinley:

I understand what you mean re Judy G's singing; my uncle produced Easter Parade- I wish he were alive so I could ask him if he ever did anything to help her (or Mickey Rooney) re the way they were used; I do think he came upon the scene years after the drug scenario, although he was the one who decided she should play "Dorothy" in TWOZ.

I hate this business because it tends to destroy the vast majority of those who are involved in it as performers. Susan is an innocent surrounded by exploiters, and even if they have affection for her, in the end money will always be their prime objective.

Thanks to those who replied to my earlier post re comparisons.
Posted by TommyUSA on June 24, 2009
LOL at Carnegie61.....yep, her profile says she's been
happily married for 40 years....:) I'm really happy for her.

Hi folks came back to check on our Susan and sure enough some great videos of her Aberdeen performances..she is looking good I love her hair cut and she is wearing eye make up which makes her eyes show up better on stage she is looking great and so much more confident ..she can get all the exposure she needs as I am waiting not too patiently for her to come to America and wow us on the other side of the pond ..lol Susan you Rock the House no matter where you go...Awesome! hugs and love you girlfriend..Kat Florida

Janna55: I LOVE THAT CLIP!!!Thanks for the link. I particulary love when she sings, "I hear singing but there's no one here" behind the little figurine. She would be so cool to know IRL. I had to save it to my favorites. I also love the dress she is wearing in the semi-final. That is my favorite of all her performances and I watch it at least once a day.

Finally, a video of Susan in Birmingham in tonight's show! Both Memory and I Dreamed a Dream:

I have submitted it to this site.

@eagleflight, what they didn't eat they took home, so brownies are all gone. Did you see the video? She was sensational, as always.
Posted by FocusOnSusan on June 24, 2009
@Janna55, thanks for the reminder-I don't think I saw that one.

Susan describes herself as 'shy' but what a sense of humor she has! I think we've all seen that as she's gone along and even though the first few performances on the BGT tour were 'straight as an arrow' we can see how her wonderful sense of humor is starting to squeak through :).
Posted by ksdust on June 24, 2009
Carnegie61 I was thinking the same thing. if Susan gets a really good press agent he/she would know there are fan clubs for Susan and they could send an email every day or so to let us know what Susan is doing. it wouldn't have to be anything really personal.

Posted by QM on June 24, 2009
Haven't had a chance to comment lately - took me forever to catch up on all the postings!

Susan has grown so much in her technique, and so quickly, too! She is getting very polished in her delivery, and it's so good to see her thoroughly enjoying herself!

Tommy - glad you decided to stick around. You would have been sorely missed.

Natalie & Ger Amsterdam - never apologize for your English. You both have a wonderful grasp of this language, and are more eloquent than many who use English as their native tongue. This is true for many of our members who use English as a second or third language, you do not need to apologize, we understand you just fine!
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 24, 2009
Ah, chrisk,---That was a beauty of a video!!! BOTH performances---and both were terrific!! She was in top form,---no question about it. Didn't seem tired in the least,---at least not to me!! Maybe she's learning how to rest "on the road,"--finally! That's an art in itself!! THANKS for posting!!
Posted by DocRobbie on June 24, 2009
Hey it looks like three of us found it at about the same time! Congrats to chrisk and Tommy! I'm watching it without interruption for the first time right now. Wonderful performance by Susan, she seems at ease and confident. Nice closeup video, very good sound. The quality will get better after YouTube processes the video file some more - right now there is no HQ button. The audience wasn't too rowdy, so you can hear Susan clearly even on her big notes. So good of the YouTuber aliijuddsex staying up until 2 am in the UK to give us this video! Please leave some nice comments for him!
Posted by aliz on June 24, 2009
someone needs to write susan's neice and have susan write use telling us how and what she is doing and how the cd is coming and send sweet pictures of her as she is growing. Tell susan we are going to have big huge gigantic withdrawals and will need our introvenous drips of susan very very shortly after she leaves this tour. Also if susan needs a reminder of who her fans are and needs a boost herself. So we show her we are not being selfish.
Posted by Susan43212 on June 24, 2009

Yes aliz, I will definitely be going through withdrawal when the BGT tour is over. Susan is addictive.
Posted by squeaky_bird on June 24, 2009
@ChrisK: Thanks for the link. She's doing great! The dress will have to be tossed at the end of the tour. It no longer fits her. lol. I am so thankful that she seems to be handling everything. However, I think she should take a couple of days off now. I hope she does, anyway.
Posted by entropydecides on June 24, 2009
@teesiel, I swooned (a little heart sinking) when I heard you had her autograph and she had written both names. Good choice not to post it though. I keep thinking I have to move on...too addicted, but I haven't had this much energy and happiness in longer than I can remember, I think it'a watching her progress.
Posted by pottedferne on June 24, 2009
Oh my goodness..Susan is becoming as comfortable with "a large audience" as she was with the karoke crowd at the pub she sang at...did else anyone notice she didn't put her left hand on her diaphragm this time?

Thank you to everyone who posted tonight's Brimingham video. Wow, she outdoes herself at each performance, and I don't know how that is even possible. Yes, she is getting more and more interactive with the audience, and I think that is so important for her to do that. Loving every minute of her. Boy, we're going to miss these every-day performances once this tour ends. We will be wondering where she is each day and night. Will miss her!
Posted by fano123 on June 24, 2009

Susan can truly consider herself and artist...I have never seen someone so aptly hold a crowd captive with their wonderful vocals. I have followed the BGT tour here thanks to the clips supplied by the fans lucky enough to be in attendance and have enjoyed each and every performance. I am anxiously awaiting Susan's appearances in the USA...she is a phenomenal talent and we need her here...Hugs to Lady Susan...You have done it, my girl, you have become the artist you have always dreamnt you would be...Way to go!!! The angels are rejoicing!!!
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
Thanks chrisk - that was a fantastic performance! Susan really owned that audience.

I'm thinking now that Susan wasn't blowing kisses to anyone in particular at Wembley (was it Wembley?). I think it was the beginning of the old Susan beginning to emerge. She was interacting with her audience.

Just look at Susan now - in full command, interacting with her audience as if she knows each one personally, showing everyone how much appreciates them being
there.

The lip curl thing is still there, but so was the smile this time. The lip curl didn't bother me today. Thanks to everyone who explained it to me.

Doesn't she look fantastic! Her face is thinner and her makeup really accentuates all her beautiful features. Can't wait to see her in a lovely gown that fits properly.

Sorry - I can't stop raving about this performance - it's the absolute best yet!

One more thing :-) I love the way it looks like the rose petals are falling on her from this camera angle.

I feel so good tonight, seeing Susan deliver such strong, sure performances in B'ham. She DOES look as if she's having fun, responding to the audience and drawing them in with her arms. It's getting through now that all this adulation is genuine and her audiences really want to hear her sing!! How gratifying it must be to her to see all of those people on their feet, clapping and cheering---just for HER!! Enjoy every minute of it, Darling!! You've waited so long---and you deserve every BIT of it!!

Just listened to Memory and IDAD from Birmingham. Susan is fantastic as always and she is now so relaxed, waving and sending kisses to the crowd. How lucky they are to be there. Thanks DocRobbie, Tommy and Chrisk for finding today's show and posting it at a reasonable hour in Mountain Standard Time 7.30 or so.. Maybe she is over any jitters and nerves that made it tiring for her in the beginning and now she using all the love an vibes from her fans to keep singing better and better and more relaxed every day. Wow Susan, you are fabulous.

What a remarkable performance! I remember after the end of the BGT contest, I was so nervous for Susan every time she performed on the tour. But over the past three concerts, I have had complete faith in her and I just know that she will keep on doing better and better. A totally wonderful woman. We love you Susan.

Posted by bisto on June 24, 2009
Having a painful disabling condition since I was 34 ( am now 56) I often find living a bit hard, however now, every time I get really down I click onto Susan Boyle in that first audition and immediately feel so uplifted I cannot thank her enough for being brave enough to go on Britain's Got Talent.
Without meaning to sound too dramatic she saves my life every time I get that low.... just by watching her sing ' I dreamed a dream'... Her life has not been in vain no matter whether she goes on to make millions or not, I for one am very grateful to her and good luck to her...
Anyone that says differently is only jealous and does not appreciate what faculties they still have.

Just watched the Birmingham video and Miss Boyle does not disappoint! She delivers the goods! I was truly thrilled listening. Her voice is sooooooo beautiful. Will look forward to a CD when I can lean back in my easy chair and take in those pristine notes (especially the high ones) not muted by screaming fans. (But I might scream if I was there in person and I like their enthusiasm). She is looking happy and relaxed and doing a very professional presentation. (All those years in the mirror with the hair brush paid off Susan! lol) But she can really handle herself on stage and is doing better than the BGT performances that were nerve-racking. I'm so happy for her! applause applause for a great singer and a dear lady!!

What an incredible performance! When it doesn't seem like she can get any better, she does! Susan is so masterful at drawing the audience in. And as some others have said, she looks like she's having fun. She's been through so much in the past few weeks (not to mention prior to BGT) that it makes my heart sing just to see Susan enjoying singing again.

Thanks to Tommy and the others who captured this for us. And to the person who recorded it and then stayed up late to post it on YouTube for all of us who were not fortunate enough to be there tonight. And to Paul who keeps this site trekking along.
Posted by ZOEY on June 24, 2009
OMG, how can it be that Susan keeps getting better and better and better. You all probably know by now how much she moves me whenever I hear her sing. But tonight, it was different. It was almost like a change has come over Susan whereby she knows that her dream has come true. She is so at peace on that stage, a bundle of warmth and love, and she shares that so completely with her audience and with us. I am just so grateful that she has been "discovered." What a gift she is. What an absolute magnanimus human being. It's almost as if she has the world in the palm of her hand and that must be so different from how her life used to be. She is a blossoming flower and every time we see her, another petal has opened.
Thanks, once more, to all who posted the link to tonight's performance. Seeing Susan deliver those performances has again touched and moved me in a way that is undescribable. I know you all understand what I am trying to convey because I am sure each and every one of you feel and experience the exact same thing. Our world is a much brighter and more loving world because Susan is in it.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
just watched the video again....."frumpy"???....Hmmph! how could anyone ever call this beautiful woman frumpy!? Such style and grace.
Posted by Sandra-R on June 24, 2009
My favourite picture is of Susan and the sax player arm-in-arm.

Her hair appears to be getting longer than we have ever seen it. I imagine someone different does her hair in each city. I really like the hair style where her hair is semi-straight.

I can't wait for July when Susan gets to regain control over her life amd be done with this tour.
Posted by fano123 on June 24, 2009
I would be real curious how the folks at the Happy Valley and Karaoke clubs back in Blackburn would compare her performances back then to now.

As much as I love the IDAD performance in the BGT audition, the Birmingham performance, which I think is her best yet, is on a whole new level.
Posted by ponylady on June 24, 2009
Great job guys! I can hit the hay in total peace that our Susan is finding it all "Well Worth It." Her fans are certainly finding that too. A bit of thunder around here today, so Kiki Puss will be wanting attention. Hope Pebbles will soon be getting some from her favorite world famous super star.

When she joiins her hans at the mike and then extends her arms that reminds me of her saying here is my door and please won't you come in for the love that is given to you today. Wow she is flawless in her singing. Her managers must be really thrilled with these performances and the audiencews responses to her. They definately know they are going to have to get her in the right venues and help her to foster these gifts she is giving. I in my life have never felt this way about any and I mean any singer!

If you go to the Birmingham video on YouTube, you will see many wonderful comments by Susan's fans, and many equally wonderful comments by the video's maker, aliijuddsex, a 19 year old girl.

Here is a sample of her comments:

Thank you for the comment, can't believe people in america are actually watching my video!

She was amazing, during the competition I was a Diversity fan but tonight she was by far the star of the show.

This is slightly mental for me, a 19 yr old girl from england having so many people watching and commenting my video. It's awesome.

Especially as it's going all over the world!

I got a lump in my throat when she was performing and I think my mum cried a bit.

Yeah, the tabloids are full of where they belong...rubbish!!

ChrisRN the truth can now be told, Susan wasn't suffering from exaustion, she was suffering from severe back pain - from carrying the wieght of BGT ratings, ticket sales from the BGT tour, YouTubes SEO rankings, Piers and Amandas careers and now being asked to boost the ratings of AGT and X-Factor.

She hasn't been taking time off for rest, she's been in traction!!!

I'm not a "trained singer"---but my husband is---and I'm around them a lot in practice and performances. Susan's breathing technique absolutely astonishes me!! I have no idea where she takes a breath!! After those big notes and long runs, she just carries on as if it was NOTHING!! I hope her former teacher, Mr. O'Neill is watching and taking personal bows. He taught her well!!
Posted by katladyd on June 24, 2009
I just watched Susans' Birmingham performance on You Tube. I have never thought Memory was Susan's best song...until now. She sings it even better that Streisand! What stage presence and appeal. This lady is a born performer. How was she not discovered before this. Whatever anybody thinks of BGT, they gave Susan a chance to show the world her stuff. I will always thank them for that. What if we had never heard of her? Too sad to think about. Dear Susan is the greatest discovery since Tut's Tomb. Absolutely mind-blowing! Quite simply the best singer alive today.
Posted by protectsusan on June 24, 2009

Posted by aliz on June 24, 2009
we need to write simon and piers and tell them to watch these last few days videos and tell them they had better put susan in some of her own shows because they will be losing a gem by just having her onn AGT and singing for private businesses. They will make a whole lot more money if they don't limit her and her talents.They will never be able to find a person who draws you in as she does. They can't reproduce nor bottle what susan has.

She must just breathe with the song she's singing. A lot of youngsters are falling for her, especially the ones who see her live.

I do beleive Susan must be nominated for a Grammy or two. Best New Artist and Album of the Year? What do you guys think?

aliz I have been a marketing professional for 25+ years now and to see how Susan has gone from complete anonimity to where she is now is beyond me.

In my mind, she's the perfect storm - a once in a lifetime combination of talent, stage charisma, humble beginnings, one very magic moment on BGT and a fanbase that seemed to be waiting for her to come along.

When I hear Piers talking about finding the next Susan Boyle on AGT, I just don't see it happening. The thing they will be hard to duplicate is the emotional impact she has on us.

When all is said and done, we won't be measuring Susan's impact on ratings, ticket sales, web hits or CDs sold. We'll be measuring her impact on the buckets of tears she's brought to our eyes.

Great video of Susan in Birmingham tonight. It's good to see her up close and smiling and throwing kisses to the fans.

There are no words to describe the incredible journey Susan is on..she cannot get BETTER each time can she? Yet she does..blows my mind. She hit every note, every phrase, every up and down (happiness is, memory too ) exactly. So smooth and seamless. Her breathing seems to fascinate some people. You cannot see it or hear it..Amazing. If you watch those videos where she is shown close up and her diaphram area shows..look at her dress..the glittering material allows you to see the movement of her diaphram..seems like she is breathong and singing at the smae time. Glorious performance tonight. My children are coming from Arizona and California for a family reunion and I have done NOTHING to prepare. Will be up all night and have banned myself from this computer. Ba away for 4 whole days... I feel Serious Susan withdrawl coming..have a grat weekend, stay kind and ...,Love to All

Joining in the conversation about Judy and Liza and Susan. Agree that those who love Judy and Liza would probably love Susan. Never did see Judy in concert but I have her recordings on CD and vinyl (yep, still have a record player LOL). I see such a resemblence of Judy in Liza, and not in a good way. But it seems Liza keeps pulling herself together and keeps on keeping on. God bless her. Susan has joined the world of the belters. Not many of those ladies anymore . . . Judy, Liza, Barbra, Susan and Ethel Merman . . . the belters club :-) And each one of them is in their own league. Love them or not, everyone has got to agree there is noone else like them. Each are in a league all of their own.

For sure Katladyd... I'd be shocked if she wasn't invited to the Grammy's this year.
Posted by aliz on June 24, 2009
You know not seeing where she breaths is not just training. That is part of the technique she has developed and elaine paige says that is is a natural talent. I have watched and watched for the breaths there are none that I can notice, You see it in babs and celiene., but not susan. I haven't watched renee fleming yest to see if you can see her breathing yet. I'll let you knw. And don't you know those reporters on tv and newspapers here are going to be so asamed of themselves when she sings here.

Tell someone your close to where it is if you go weak in the knees.Hee hee. She does seem to breath and sing at the same time how is that possible. I have watched all of the vidoes thus far for her breathing, but I have to say she has me stimed!

I'm still kinda shocked at tonight's performance. Is it just me or did it seem like her voice grew and got a lot stronger between Aberdeen and tonight's performance? If she has that type of voice that's going to keep on growing, just wait another 5 years, we'll all be blown off our seats.

WAMcKinley, I liked your post about tonight's performance. When you said, "How gratifying it must be to her to see all of those people on their feet, clapping and cheering," it reminded me that she said in a BGT interview right after her audition that she wanted to make people happy. She is sure doing it.

Was so nice to see a good clear video with beautiful sound.

Video was by aliijuddsex

Her comment was:

The audience absolutely loved her, I don't know if you can hear but somewhere during her 2nd song some people were even chanting her name. She was fantastic !She got a standing ovation(sp?) after both songs, as you can see, she was truly incredible. The star of the show by far and I'm personally a Diversity fan.I loved watching her. She was captivating on stage .I think she's getting all her confidence back because of how well the crowds reacted to her on .She's just awesome!

treesmary: One of the things I love best about Susan's performances is how she gives back the love she gets from the crowds. They cheer and applaud---and she opens her arms to them as if to say, "Thank you,---I love you, too!!" It's just so beautiful to watch. She gives---and she receives. What a sweet, loving soul she is!!
Posted by Patricia's Art on June 24, 2009
@WAMcKinley . About Susan's breathing one thing may be a facter and that is she walks everywhere. She doesn't drive. So since she has been walking everyday all her life that must have kept her cardio vascular system in good shape. Plus she sings everyday so she has built up her breathing capacity.
Posted by Marie-Fan Forever Canada on June 24, 2009
Thank you Susan !!! Enjoy it all !!! So happy when I hear you sing !!!
We get bits and pieces as we are so far away from you...yet you're so close with internet...it will be even more of a great treat when some of your CDs reach us...can't wait but will wait...when the time is right for you...

Posted by WAMcKinley on June 24, 2009
@patriciasart: Good point! I had forgotten about the walking. Teesiel mentioned that someone in Blackburn commented that Susan walked "all the time,"---everywhere. They would always see her out walking. I'm sure that has a lot to do with her stamina and certainly her breathing capacity. Would that I followed such a regimen! That's SO healthy!!
Posted by 2SusanBFans on June 24, 2009
Susan was fantastic tonight! The best yet! Thank you Tommy for posting the link. We are so lucky to see all these performances...I had never been to Youtube until there was Susan. It's good she is enjoying the performances.

Wackinley did you notice how she had her hands out and motioned with her finger to come closer or come to me for a hug, and know I love you dearly. That is the first time I saw that. I am very observant and my student have all commented on my seeing and hearing every little thing. I tell them I am very ADHD and I am very easily distracted so pay attention to what I am teaching them. And you know what they know I understand where some of them are truely comming from.

...It was great to see the kids too. One boy said with huge pride, "She's Scoatish". Do you think that the Scottish speak a dialect, or is it another language? Would love to know. Some of the dialogue is pretty hard to understand.

”Let’s hope we get a few interviews with fans travelling down to Aberdeen tonight from Peterhead or Fraserburgh. That could really test even some of the Scots here. I remember many years ago seeing an interview with a fisherman from Peterhead on the BBC Scottish news. His reply had subtitles even for Scottish viewers.

Yes, we have different accents and dialects across Scotland and the rest of the UK as you have across every country but the language is English.

There is an ancient Scottish language, Gaelic but that is now only spoken by a very small percentage of the population mainly in the Highlands and Western Isles.”

Dear Roaccy,

I never saw anything like this in my WHOLE life- loved her then, and now- i love her amazing re-inventing of herself every day- you see, this is what Susan thought about every day, yu guys! that is WHY she seems to be turning into such a butterfly- SHE knew that she could be this great, and this stunning and all she needed was the break- I am so privileged to see this and I know many of you feel like I do.

Wow. Susan was so beautiful in the Birmingham performance. That dress is just swimming on her now. And her hair is growing so fast.

She has succeeded in proving everyone against her wrong. This is a once-in-a-lifetime performer, filled with grace, warmth and love. It was there at the audition, we saw it. But now she has come into her own and she is right, "The sky is the limit."

Aboslutely breathtaking and I am filled with awe.

When she has her own show, I want to see her in red, purple, bright colors that match her intensity.

Something else, I'm excited for all her young fans who are getting to experience REAL talent and singing. We older fans can remember this but they haven't been exposed to it and you can tell they find Susan enchanting. I find that really exciting.

Posted by sassyone on June 24, 2009
She is so relaxed now, go watch the first Birmingham performances, then watch tonight's Birmingham performances. It's like night and day. When she first started this tour, she really did have performance anxiety. But not now, she walks on with confidence. She waves at the audience, blows many kisses. Responds to them too, by saying "she loves them too." she is really growing into the superstar skin. And you know, I don't think she's as tired as before.

IT envies me to know that I can't see her live, thank god for those who capture it on video.

So, a great thank you goes to all those who truly love her and want the world to see her sing.

@jayhawk Galveston was yesterday -- and it was great! We took a canopy and put it up on the beach so we had shade, there was a great breeze & the kids had a blast playing in the gulf. The city doesn't look too bad, although you can still see quite a bit of damage. There is nothing surfside where the shops used to be & the hotel & restaurant were out over the water. The Strand is back to about half -- our favorite place, the old fashioned ice cream shop is still closed. Lots of folks there, though, so people are supporting what's there.

Looking at the BGT schedule, it looks like they have this Sun and Mon off, then again Thurs. Susan might be advised to take some time off to rest her voice, but if she has her druthers, I think she will do the rest of the shows. She is having the time of her life.

Wow - wonderful performance tonight! She seems more relaxed and confident with each performance - it seems that doing this tour has been just the ticket for her. It must have been unbelievably hard to get up there the first few shows, but now she surely knows that people want to hear her and that not winning bgt doesn't make one whit of difference to her achieving her dream.

One Word: SUSAGODDESS!!! on her June 24th Birmingham performaces!

Thanks Chrisk & Tommy for getting the link! I'd been monitoring YouTube since 16:00 California PDT, would have found it same time as y'all if had stayed on line JUST a few minutes longer - darn! Had despaired (re. my earlier post) nobody would have even recorded the performance (aren't I a fool!)but am ecstatic that it had been AND was posted a "decent" hour for me to view.

Did something had been reluctant to do until tonight: pester my neighbors who have DSL for me to view both of Susan's performances - complete - via their PC; been totally unable to up to now because of heavy dial-up server traffic here after 18:00 PDT - THANK YOU Bob & Bev next door for that!

Could go on AND on about Susan's magnificant performance tonight but will only say that she'd KILLED'EM and am thrilled she'd waved at folks during "Memory" in a "home-town way" I'd found absolutely endearing!

Susan IS going from strength to strength now, she was genuinely happy tonight performing and in full stride to complete the BGT tour on July 5th. The "Trashbloids" now will have to write something else about her other freak'n out about not having Pebbles around (they WILL come with something vile sooner rather than later alas...) but until then watch for faux rapturous stories about her and her singing (gag!).

All LOVE from Cameron Park, California Susan, DO come to the U.S.A. soon so we can honor our Heavenly Lady of Blackburn and line the Victory Path on which you walk with fragrant flower petals and crown thy head with laurels!!!

@Aliz -- I don't think that was you -- I've seen comments here from bibi before.............just don't know what that garbage was all about............forget it, hon........we all love you!

The comments from Bibi are not good. It'll be gone soon, so don't worry about it. @Aliz, we know that is not you!

Aliz....if those were your comments I sincerely apologize to you. Did you read bibi's comments and then right after that there were a bunch of your comments that didn't seem right but what do I know! I am sorry. Lets call it a night.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 24, 2009
No one's calling you a troll, Aliz,---relax. All jayhawk fan said was that someone might be posting under your name. But that wasn't so. It was posted under bibi's name. Anyhow,---no harm/ no foul. All's cool. I'm sure BethinUSA is fine, too. We just ignore trolls when they appear. And we all know Aliz is NOT a troll. Okay?? GREAT!

Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
aliz, sorry I did not answer you sooner, I was getting some business done (I love internet business, I can do it in the middle of the night if I want).

I'm sure no one thinks you're a troll. A siren is nothing like a troll. A siren is very alluring, which is what I thought you were trying to think of in describing Susan. I can't think of a word to describe the force of nature that you were looking for.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 24, 2009
Ah,---MAN!!! I can't keep all this stuff straight!! But I'm sure Paul can figure it all out. I have no idea how someone can post under another person's name,----but he probably understands all that stuff and will get to the bottom of it. I still say, if we just ignore trolls, they'll just disappear in time. There was just one thing from that one-----and then, POOOFF!! Gone. Not worth fretting over, IMO.

How can Susan possibly continue to get better and better? Each time I think her latest performance was the best yet, she comes along and out does herself again. Like I said before, Sorry Elaine Page, our Queen Susan reigns over Memory now. And the transformation of I Dreamed a Dream from Susan's audition until now is amazing. When is that CD going to be released? I can't wait!!!
Posted by Sandra-R on June 24, 2009

Susan's dress is beginning to sway like an empty sack in the breeze. Am I imagining it, or has Susan lost weight?

Susan was so amazingly comfortable and happy with the stage tonight in Birmingham. Is she finally able to accept that people do appreciate her, and love her?
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
@grits, sorry, I meant to say "the post", not "the posts". Oh, boy.
Posted by Susan43212 on June 24, 2009
I thought the same thing. Susan has lost some weight. I'm beginning to see a waistline.
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
Ignoring the post would have saved some very hurt feelings tonight. I think that has been a good lesson for all of us. Just ignore the wacky posts and quietly report them to Paul.
Posted by judyokla on June 24, 2009
Ok, will you people just stop it!!! Do not type another word about Susan for the next 8 hours! I’m worn out!!

Ok. Sorry about that. Where’s my manners….hi, I’m Judy. Only been a member since sometime this month, but haven’t had time to post anything. Been a mess since April… duh…can’t leave the computer and have my nose impression permanently embossed on the screen. Thought once Susan was touring I could relax, but NOOO. Found this site and can’t get caught up with everything and post too. Have 7 tabs open all the time on the puter – listening, downloading, watching, reading, and still can’t keep up with everything.

Posted by AFan2 on June 24, 2009
It appears to me also that Susan is losing weight and looks great. The down side is...that while she is losing weight we are all gaining it (sitting tapping away at these keys!).
:-)
Posted by Susan43212 on June 24, 2009
Ain't that the truth AFan2. Maybe that is where Susan's lost weight is going....right to our waists :)

AFan2 - not me.....I'm losing weight! Can't be bothered getting up from here to cook and eat, much less go to the supermarket to shop :-)
Posted by jordie on June 24, 2009
Marvellous, marvellous, marvellous...Susan just keeps getting better and better. She is so comfortable now and seems to be enjoying every minute of her performances. I still can't describe her...she has an "aura" about her that is hard to not be attracted to her...a magnetism. She must be thrilled to bits at the audiences' reaction to her. It is like a fairy tale, come true. You are so special OurSusan..

I am very sure that Simon and Piersy are seeing her
performances at each venue. If they don't have someone
taking the videos in the audience, they are falling down on the job. Darn, half my comment block has disappeared.
Ok again.
Cee: You are having a time with your computer. I have the same problem..patience is a virtue trying to download different parts of the Fansite. Also, if you can't get a video to open in the smaller format which is what you get when you click on whichever one you want, click on the little square in the right hand corner of the video to enlarge it..often that will get things going properly.

Many, many thanks to the geniuses who posted the Birmingham videos from today's performance. What would we do without you guys and girl...

A comment on "Home Sweet Home" video. It is superb and and the music is brilliant. What a lovely region OurSusan was born into. No wonder she looks so healthy. Imagine the clear air there. Hmmm lovely..

In regard to bibi. To give the benefit of the doubt, do you suppose she/he was giving us an example of a Scottish dialect?

Nite all, kisses all round....12:45 a.m.EST, Canada

Our lovely girl has once again given an amazing performance as always. No matter how many times I see her, she always makes me cry. I am SO proud of her and love her as dearly as if she were my very own child.

I put this on Piers Blog (after I said I banned myself from the computer..famous last words Hee Hee) I do not know where else to put it. Does anyone know where to email or blog him in the US? If you do..and think my words are worthwhile, send them to him while I am gone this weekend. My statement may not be literary(?) but it comes from the heart. Here goes........

Piers-tried to read all the blogs above and some are a little.....wellllll..This is the deal. They are all about Susan aren't they? She has a vast fan base and they are vocal and protective. Watch Susan's second performance in Birmingham on June 24.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?=WM3MoHh_7Wk. WATCH THIS VIDEO OF SUSAN. Is she amazing or what? Yes she IS. I have read 1000's of comments and blogs about Susan and most of the comments about YOU were positive. You were her champion when things were bad. You almost singlehandedly turned things around for her. It's getting so much better now, BUT 1000's of people are looking to you to continue to protect her from the vultures, what ever form they take. Please do not turn your back on her. Watch this video. WATCH IT. Can you see how special she is and how astounding her talent is becoming? Listen and watch the audience reaction. Look at her face when she reacts to them. Please watch out for her. I admire what you did when things were bad. Don't let us, or more importantly HER down now. Know you are busy with AGT. Just DO NOT forget her. Don't get so busy that you are not paying attention. She is so special and you KNOW she deserves the best. Please help make sure she at least gets a fair shot at her Dream. Janet in Texas.
Posted by HereToday on June 24, 2009
Susan's performance tonight was incredible. Maybe she is gaining more confidence back now that she can see how much the crowds love her and even the tabloids seem to have given up posting negative attacks and drivel. In the recent videos you can hear people calling out her name and in London she couldn't even hear the music because of the crowd's cheers, must be comforting to her to see how much she is loved.

G'night, All. Tomorrow's another day of Susa-watching. My schedule says tomorrow is HMV,---whatever THAT is,---Hammersmith Apollo. Two performances: 2:30 and 7:30. Anyone know if that's right?? Then I have nothing until Tuesday, the 30th--at Dublin---7:30.
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
@patriciasart, bibi_36 started out saying, "Posted by booboo_37.6983805_minus 38_plus_a-whole-bunch" which makes no sense (there is no such member as booboo_37.6983805_minus 38_plus_a-whole-bunch), then quoting rocky_10, a quote that Paul had already deleted! Then bibi proceeded to reply to other members in a way totally unlike anything bibi has written before. It's all very mysterious, and I suspect a hacker. We've made it to the bigtime! Facebook members gets hacked all the time.
Posted by Fassbrig on June 24, 2009
Every time I see a new performance from Susan it is incredible to believe that she is even better than the performance before. The difference is that Susan is healthier, more relaxed, more confident and now believes that audiences want to hear her sing and truly love her.
Posted by WAMcKinley on June 24, 2009
Sorry,---I was totally wrong. The 25th is Coventry (Ricoh)---7:30; Friday is Bournemouth at 5:30 and 8:30. Then SATURDAY is Hammersmith Apollo in HMV (Wherever that is). Then nothing till Dublin on the 30th.

Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
@fassbrig, yes, it looks like the doubt is gone, she has supreme confidence that people are wild about her! Her stamina also seems better, but some of that may be linked to her confidence.

She is feeling her power, at least I hope she is. She's a smart lady, so I'm sure it hasn't passed her by that because the crowds love her, that means a lot of power that she can use to her advantage in any negotiations. Considering that Simon Cowell is part of the equation, well, you see my point?
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
G'night, Retired! Don't let the bed-bugs bite! LOL
Posted by Sandra-R on June 24, 2009
I agree. Susan is now a bona fide professional singer, and we are so fortunate to have her.

Goodnight all.
Posted by sassyone on June 24, 2009
To beth and Fassbrig, yes, I see that too, she's gotten so strong and confident with her performances. She's also not so tired anymore. I don't think she'll have that long break like she did over a week ago. She's growing into her new found skin and it glows. I'm so happy for her. EVERY single show she's had 2 or 3 standing ovations.

To others that have commented on her weight loss:

yes, she has lost weight, and it shows. I think it's a combination of proper diet (not a crash diet) but a diet that has vitamin B12 (good for energy) and her constant traveling would do it too. Which is why she gets tired quickly. I do believe she will probably miss tomorrow's show, but will be back on the next night because she wasn't tired in this show.

If you ever feel tired, take vitamin B12 you will find yourself motivated and raring to go.
Posted by B.J. on June 24, 2009
Someone pointed out the fact that Susan always walked everywhere has probably been a big factor in her excellent breath control -- makes a lot of sense and could definitely have made a difference. Also, the fact that she sang A LOT since age twelve. I do remember reading, however, that after her mother died she stopped singing for quite awhile and rarely went out of the house. Lots of very quiet, solitary moments to think and reflect. It's still completely amazing to me that she found the courage to audition for BGT. It was her mother's suggestion, and I know after someone close to you dies, there can be a very strong motivation to do something to honor that person's memory. Just think about the profound impact that suggestion from Susan's mother has had!! Susan said later that the audition was nerve-wracking, but she seemed very confident to me on that stage. The whole thing, and clearly the path that she's been on since she first sang IDAD, have simply been amazing. Absolutely amazing. . . .and fantastic!! I don't think if Susan had been on BGT at age 25 that she would have done as well. She needed time to mature, both vocally and emotionally, to experience more of life, and to take singing lessons from a vocal coach. At age 47 she is ready, and boy, does she deliver!! Her voice is rich, clear, expressive, emotional, and well-controlled, and she completely blows us away!! I am totally captivated by her voice and her story. What a thrill to watch her follow her dream.

Okay, thanks for listening. I'll stop for now. Goodnight, all.
Posted by BethInTheUSA on June 24, 2009
@sassyone, I take it because once in a while I feel like my brain is foggy, and nothing I was doing before helped, not eating right, not getting more excercise, caffeine, nothing. I decided to try B12, thinking it wouldn't work, but lo and behold it did! (Sorry for the commercial :P)
Posted by DR on June 24, 2009
It's been great fun watching Susan grow into the woman she dreamed of being. But, it has been hard to see the pain along the way. It has reminded me of watching my children grow up. They are wonderful men now, but had hardships to face in the getting there. Bless you Susan - I am in awe of your strength and determination.

Thankyou for posting this video.
I thought Susan did an amazing job once again.
But I thought she looked a little strained. She was not joking in the video as she has done in the past. I worry about her getting exhausted. She has such high expectations for herself. Protect her and God Bless her

10:54PM in SoCal and I come home from a late night at work to hear Susan first thing. Her Birmingham performance was amazing; all the power and energy was flowing! Maybe the best I can remember, and there were some good ones! She was totally in control. What a performer and a lady.
Posted by nnels54 on June 24, 2009
Susan had never sung before a live audience before her first BGT audition. Her voice had been contained in saloons and family living rooms and church choir and 3rd rate talent shows. She said, she'd always wanted to perform in front of a large audience - and once that voice was off the leash, it leapt into hearts around the world. I swear, she hits notes that are like a tuning fork that reach to my very soul.
Posted by sassyone on June 24, 2009
Beth, I take it too, that and iron supplements because I am anemic and I have low levels of energy. When Susan rests, it not just because she's resting her vocals, but maybe she's anemic. It sure sounds like it too me.
Posted by Dougie on June 24, 2009

I have a question if there's anyone still awake. I wasn't affected by the Elvis or Beatles mania, even tho I'm old enough. Just have never been interested in singers, etc, but does this Susan phenomenon feel different to you? Maybe this is what I should have felt when I was a teen, but, boy, this is intense. I have never been this obsessed!! :)

The video of Susan in Birmingham June 24 is a treasure to behold. What confidence and happiness we can see here. Her growth as a performer has been like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. This performance was the absolute best I have seen her do.... so effortless yet so personal, warm and inviting. I only wish I could have been there in person to be part of this extraordinary experience!

Susan has had a continues to have a profound effect on many, many, many people around the world. She has the "it" factor, that intangible quality in her voice and her persona that touch the very heart and soul of people lucky enough to hear and see her.

My thanks go to the young person who took this video. What an experience this must have been for her.

Just watched the latest Birmingham tape. I think it is the best singing we have heard from her!!! She was in tremendous voice on this tape. And the nicest part of all was that she was smiling so much as she was singing--and during the breaks. She simply radiates when she smiles--and draws people to her. It is a privilege to watch her grow with each passing day. It is obvious that she is working VERY hard behind the scenes to improve her singing with each performance--and she DOES look like she has overcome her nerves, relaxed, and is really enjoying performing. Will watch this Birmingham performance over and over. It's a hard one to beat!
Posted by stevieboy49 on June 24, 2009
Good morning from West Lothian. I have just watched Susan's performance in Brum last night. Best yet, and wasn't wonderful to see 'oor lassie' smiling so much. She looked so happy and so IN CONTROL! The audience were a lucky bunch, tonight, for they witnessed a true delight.
If you compare the two Brum shows, you can see how beneficial has been the journey Susan has been on. Sure, it has taken it's toll on her health, for the rest days have been clearly necessary, but she now looks far more relaxed, happy and responsive to an audience that clearly loves her singing and which is communicating that fact to her. It's almost like a mutual appreciation society!
Maybe, time for another break now, for that is four in a row! Where is she due now? - I have lost track. I must write that itinerary down sometime!
Cheerio for now.

I keep saying every one is my favorite, but she just gets better and better. She just glows when she smiles, and it is so wonderful to see her more relaxed, smiling and waving. I could watch her all night, but I'll be falling out of my chair if I try. Thank you for this video!

When I find the video stopping and the circle going around and around, it appears I have too many things running on my PC. So, I click on the "pause," close all other programs and any other tabs, then go back and play the video. It works for me. Hope this helps.
Posted by Joly on June 25, 2009
I heard SuBo used shortly after the audition and it was definitely affectionate, and I don't see any evidence that it isn't. Most of us create little names for those close to us, so it's a good thing I believe. I do not like to disappoint you, but the songs "Porgy" and "Summertime" are both for colaratura or at least lyric soprano, aren't they? (Susan is a mezzo.) I had been thinking "I Did It My Way" until someone mentioned "You Raised Me Up", and that would be a WOW. I read somewhere that BGT winners are under some sort of limitation to BGT for a year after their win. I also think I understood Gerry Boyle to say that he and Susan trust Simon, who would be involved in managing Susan's career, and the accountant supreme would be involved in protecting her interests. I have some fears but will give space to hope that Simon is going to do this just right. My personal reason for not wanting Susan to appear on AGT is that when I viewed the online video of Paul Potts on AGT because it was being talked about, the audience was so unbelievably horrid that I was really shocked, and deeply embarrassed for my country. I could not believe that people could ever think it ok to behave like that. Then under an article talking about AGT inviting Susan, the comments were brutal toward Susan. I do not want her ever being subjected to that kind of treatment again. None of the other winners of these kinds of shows has had to. I definitely hope that Susan would tell him to fly a kite if he wants her as a contestant, and if she appears as a guest, they had better not allow any of the booing. She does not need to be constantly put up like that. But the cheering while Susan is singing on tour, I think is good, for this reason: what made the Beatles' career was when they came on Ed Sullivan and girls in the front rows screamed and cried and swooned, on tv, which sold them to the American public. The girls were hired by the group to do that, which of course our public was too naive to realize at the time. It occurred to me that in Susan's initial tour concert there could have been some paid cheerers, just in case--but if so, it is one of the few times I would give Simon a big hug. As far as being rude, it is not a Carnegie Hall or Boston Pops type concert. It is more a family night out, rock kind of concert, or maybe gig would be a good word. Lots of family fun. As I see it, the cheering helps support Susan and shows the world how loved she is, and I think we can all be grateful for it. Her other time will come, nothing can hold this river back.
Posted by DR on June 25, 2009
Joly - I think the winner's under obligation to BGT for a year, but Susan didn't win. Is everybdoy under obligation or just the winner? Could that be why Susan didn't win? So she wouldn't be tied to a contract that would hold her back?

I keep thinking since lastnights performance that with Diversity winning BGT, it's really funny to watch now because every stage Susan has stepped on in this tour, she's brought down the house. Even the Diversity boys watch her sing, lol. After so many performances and so many people seeing her on stage now, I bet the votes would be a lot different. People just can't get enough of her singing. Got to love her for the inspiration she shares with the world.

Good morning. Don't you just love it that she's so much more relaxed, smiling and waving and blowing kisses now. Got goosebumps before but, wow, she can still bring tears to my eyes.

Bibi's post was just an example of the ancient Gaelic language. Some people were asking if Susan had used Gaelic sometimes because she said things that were hard to understand. Bibi posted and explained that it is rarely used these days then answered several people's posts in Gaelic.
This is a good example that people are not really reading the posts and that often causes confusion when someone gets the tail end of the conversation.
Bibi, I loved reading your Gaelic post. It was fun trying to decide what the words mean in English.

2:33 pm CDT ~~ It has taken me a whole day, with stuff done in between, to finish this blog. Even though I made an earlier post on the new blog (2nd Perf. at Birmingham). It's like I don't want to miss a post, now that an obsession! Well, I know what I'll be doing when the BGT Tour is over: catching up on the other 73 or 74 post that I haven't read. I hope my eyes and seat hold out.
@ delly~~you are so right regarding the bibi post. I did attempt to read thru it and it was charming how things were said but I found no offense in it. I suppose villager looked at it quickly and thought it was a "problem". No problem, just someone trying to share their language. Remember we are a Susan global village and we almost took away the Welcome mat. It was a long post and it was late but be careful before you yell foul.
Peace and love to Susan and to the global village.
