Inspired

I have been crying myself sick watching this clip from "Britain's Got Talent" and so I feel like I really MUST make you watch it too.



This is pure joy folks.

Okay, so I totally cried like a baby (or like Dane Cook in Beckie's blog) when I watched Tony Laf perform. He's a few clicks over from the Opera singer you posted. Shout out deserved by Connie the 6 year old as well. From those three videos it makes me wonder when the show "who's more talented Britain or America?" will air.

wow. i do believe i got goose pimples myself, as they may call them in britain. that was fantastic. thank you so much.

Oh my...

I have to agree with Coco here. I didn't see the Tony clip, but I did see the Connie clip from that show. We got so bored watching the American version... the British show seems way, way better! I think one of the things that gets me the most is to see such praise coming from both Simon and Nils, two judges who are known to be incredibly tough.

I DID MY BEST PAM, I DID MY BEST!

I love when Puccini falls into capable hands. One can only take so much Pavarotti. Bravo.

Dainon said...

I had to watch it twice. I thought he was lip sync'ing, he's just that good. Amazing.

f*bomb. said...

LAUGHING?!?!
You mean, CRYING!!!
My little gem...That was a real feel good moment for tonight. Thank you, Katie. Thank you.
(APPLAUSE)

brent said...

So, I was totally skeptical at the start...I thought Kate meant she was crying out of pity or because Simon had said something hysterically mean.

And then the guy started singing...and after I picked my jaw from off the floor, yeah, I did my best, too, and I failed miserably. That WAS pure joy. Brilliant!

Ditto Dainon and Brent. Amazing!

tim & brandi said...

Because it's always nice to share with your friends...

k8 said...

One of my friends sent me that clip a couple days ago, and I pulled it out to show my mom last night and she had already seen it on Brit Hume on FoxNews. And said she cried. And then we watched it together and cried. I love it!
