A lesson from the older folks

Remember Paul Potts from a couple of years ago. Paul who? Paul Potts, he sang an amazingly heartfelt, not to mention beautiful, rendition of Nessum Dorma on Britain's Got Talent and ultimately went on to win the competition.

Now comes his female counterpart. Just recently, Susan Boyle (who is certainly no Edie from Desperate Housewives) sang I Dreamed A Dream. Yes, she actually breezed her way through this showstopper from Les Miserables. Below are both Paul and Susan. They could teach the yungins from American Idol a few things. It's always a good sign when even Simon Cowell is surprised.

By the way, Susan makes reference to Elaine Page who is a British singer and actress. She's been heard in Chess, been on Broadway in Chess and Sunset Boulevard and in The Drowsy Chaperone in the West End.
