A few years ago Paul Potts came along. Welsh, a cell phone salesman, and all around awesome fella. If you haven't seen the video of his performance, you should click the link above.

Then in the last week or so everyone has been talking about Susan Boyle. And with good reason,though I do think the reaction of the crowd and the judges betrays an ugly side to our common culture. Anyway, if you haven't checked out the link above, you should.

What I don't understand is why people aren't talking about Stavros and his son. It's worth checking out. :D

That was a spot on parody.

However, I think the main difference between Potts/Boyle and Stavros was that the first two are "ugly" people who have a stunning and singular talent, going against the TV norms that only attractive folks can do things well, and Stavros and son are decent dancers who primarily make you laugh because it's fat folks with their shirts off making fun of an egotist.
