Susan Boyle Gets a Frog in Her Throat, Cuts Song Short on 'The View' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 1st 2010 1:15PM
Quick! Somebody get Susan Boyle a lozenge! On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Boyle cuts a rendition of 'O Holy Night' short after she gets a frog in her throat and comes to a coughing stop.

During the song, Boyle grimaces and her voice gets raspier and raspier. Eventually, she halts the song altogether.

"Oh my gosh! Susan, that was amazing!" said Sherri Shepherd, who apparently heard something different than the rest of us.

But Whoopi Goldberg address the gaffe head-on. "When you're a singer ... that happens to you periodically. And, when you're performing, what can you really do except stop and say, 'I've got a frog in my throat'?"

Barbra may be a "Jewish Princess", but Joy Behar is not Jewish. She's Italian. She made light of this because everyone assumes wrongfully that she is.

Jerry, I am guessing your standards are something like watching nascar or other mindless programs that don't include thinking, which explains why you can't handle the conversations of intelligent women.

They were nice to her because she can't vote here so they had no other choice but to act human for a change.

Susan at her worse is better than most want to be singers out there now. She presents real music and a very beautiful voice. Leave it to TV Squad (Donald Deane)to make a mountain from a molehill. Too bad this reporter is so negative that he/she only hears the tiny little frog in Susan's throat instead of the beautiuful notes that most of the world hears. One stupid reporter asked if Susan would be able to come back from this "fall from Grace." They are trying to put negative into the general audiance minds but it will never happen. Normal,average people are smarter than dumb -@$$ reporters who are so jealous of real talent, they try to destroy them.

Sorry, people, but Susan Boyle's voice went out on her because she has not been properly trained. If she keeps singing without getting proper training, it will happen more and more frequently until her beautiful singing voice is completely gone.

Thank you, The View, Whoppie and other black girl for being so nice to Susan Boyle. Anyone can get a frog in their throat and the smoke bubbling up probably didn't help. I would not expect Joy Blowhard to do a thing except sit there and laugh...... that piece of worthless meat. I am so glad you are not like Salon. Remember when Barbara Steisand sang and forgot the words to the song in front of thousand and thousand ofs fans? Oh, but she's a Jewish Princess!

Susan has a beautiful voice. This was only one unfortunate performance she is human give her a break. Perhaps if she were beautiful would everybody overlook it? I wish her nothing but success and I hope she doesn't let this unfortunate situation spoil her confidence. Nothing but success for you Susan you deserve it.
