When First Impressions Are Wrong

Susan Boyle, age 47, took the stage at Britain’s Got Talent to sing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables.
The way she looked…
The way she moved…
The way she talked…
I’ll admit, I was looking for something like Mrs Miller from the 1960s Ed Sullivan show…so bad that it was entertaining.
But then they cued the music…
And she brought a skeptical crowd to their feet.
I watched the video four times.
Talent speaks louder than first impressions.
A great reminder to us as we prejudge the people we meet.
What you see isn’t what you get!

PS:  Note how Simon Cowell uses the rule of three to get a laugh during the judges comments:  Surprised, Surprised, Not Surprised.
