Susan Boyle Vs. Shaheen Jafargholi on 'Britain's Got Talent'

Britain's Got TalentLast week, everybody on both sides of the Atlantic was buzzing about 'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful Susan Boyle, a frumpy cat lady who claimed to have never been kissed.

The Scottish singer defied the audience's and judges' expectations by blowing the roof off the place with a gorgeous rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream.' Since then, tens of millions of people have watched her performance on YouTube, she's been on 'Larry King Live' and 'The Early Show and there's even been talk of a movie deal.

But Boyle hasn't won yet, as judge Simon Cowell noted, and now she's got some stiff competition in the form of 12-year-old Welsh boy Shaheen Jafargholi. He even got a standing ovation from Simon after a jaw-dropping performance of Michael Jackson's 'Who's Loving You.'

So, who's better? Watch the auditions videos, then decide yourself.

Is Susan Boyle done already?

Susan Boyle on LarryWell, Andy Warhol said everyone gets 15 minutes of fame, but has Susan Boyle's quarter-hour already expired? That's the opinion of New York columnist Michael Musto, but I think his Rolex knock-off is running fast. Musto thinks Boyle is done, but, you watch, Susan will be around for at least another week or two.

She was on Larry King Live on Friday. There's rumors that she's going to appear on Oprah, and I wouldn't put it past American Idol and Simon Cowell to spring her on us, giving 20 million Americans a chance to be amazed by her sweet voice and reviled by her hairy eyebrows.

Susan Boyle sings Cry Me A River

Susan BoyleBritain's Got Talent has yet another clip currently sweeping the Internet, and it's in the form of Susan Boyle and her striking voice. In a craze that has made me never want to hear "Never judge a book by its cover" again, the clip of Boyle singing her heart out and wow-ing the visibly skeptical crowd has reminded us to never judge a book by ... its ... cover. Damn it, it's unavoidable, isn't it?

Well, point is, people want more, and thanks to some digging, The Daily Record has found a recording of Boyle singing "Cry Me A River" from an extremely limited 1999 charity CD. Give it a listen, Boyle fans. You'll be delighted.

And no, it's not the Justin Timberlake version.

Simon Cowell producing Paramount's One Chance - VIDEO

Simon Cowell will produce One ChanceSimon Cowell is producing One Chance at Paramount. The film will be about Paul Potts, the opera singer who competed on Britain's Got Talent. The performance on the show was his last effort at a music career. Potts, a cell phone salesman, had hit a streak of bad luck and only auditioned on BGT in 2007 on a whim. He ended up blowing away the judges, Cowell one of them. Potts won the show, went on an international music tour, and released an album.

Justin Zackman, the scribe from The Bucket List, will write the screenplay. Zackman is also working on Planetwalker, an environmental drama for Universal.

This is the American Idol judge's studio debut. Cowell is also working on a project about a musical reality show called Star Struck. I wonder if that will be anything like American Dreamz which starred Mandy Moore and Hugh Grant.

The video of Paul's audition for Britain's Got Talent is after the jump.

Britain goes wild for Michael Jackson - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted May 1st 2008 2:02PM
britain's got talentIn the past few days, British viewers have uploaded at least two dozen copies of a recent performance on Britain's Got Talent. It's Suleman Mirza (aka "Signature"), who calls himself the "Michael Jackson Dancing Machine." He's an Indian performer with his own YouTube channel featuring all of his Michael Jackson-style dances. Mirza has a bit of an advantage in the show-- his bio says he's been performing Michael Jackson tribute dances for quite some time and has danced with some famous Bollywood stars.

I'm not going to ruin it for you, but let's just say that Suleman has a few tricks that drive the crowd wild. It's far better than anything that ever aired on America's Got Talent. Simon Cowell is a judge for the show and brings up a good point, though. Where can he go from this initial performance that had the audience jumping out of their seats?

Video is after the jump:
