So much for judging a book by its cover - the judges and audience were just awful when she came out - I think she was so brave to do this - she must know the feeling very well of the rejection she was possibly facing. What an amazing woman!!!!!

What a talented lady! I hope she obtains her dream.

Oh my goodness..I have tears in my eyes. That was absolutely beautiful. The song, the voice, the success of her being able to achieve one of her own dreams!

I trust you, Nancy! Oh, yes!!! thanks so very much for sharing that, what an absolutely stunning day brightener! Life is GOOD!

WOW. Now THAT'S the kind of thing I like to see. You truly CANNOT judge a book by its cover and this plucky lady proved it in spades!

STUNNING! I LOVED her voice and her presentation, and if I were there, I'd give her a big YES! too!

May she achieve her dreams, and I'm sure she will!

Wow! I have watched this 5 or 6 times today and I get chills everytime I watch it! I love the look on Simon's face when she belts out the first few notes! Thank you for sharing!

She was a welcome ray of sunshine on this very wet day. I had tears in my eyes too.

Isn't she amazing? I saw this on the news, and the newsman actually said "you can't judge a book by its cover" I was stunned that someone would be so unkind with a hurtful statement like that! Her beauty is magnified by her voice! Thank you for giving me another look at this talented gal!

She's incredible. What a wonderful day brightener!!

I saw a bit of this on the news, but it's great to see the whole thing.

Thanks for sharing this.

That puts a smile on my face and chills up my spine.

Over here in the UK my kids actually watched this when it first went out on air but I was at the other end of the house so missed it, they told me about it straight afterwards. A stern lesson to us all not to judge people by their appearances - which is obviously exactly what the studio audience and the judging panel did - I wish her every success her voice was a delight to behold
