    [excerpt]
    "In her much-hyped encore, however, Ms. Boyle appeared to be nervous, and began her rendition of 'Memories' from the musical 'Cats' singing slightly out of tune and clutching her abdomen," a blogger for The Wall Street Journal wrote.
    The New York Post was a little more harsh toward the Scottish singer.
    "Don't send me letterbombs or anything, but how awful was Susan Boyle's "Britain's Got Talent" semi-final performance of "Memories" this weekend? Between the mental images of Susan singing this song to her cats and the pleas to "touch me," it all just came off a little desperate and a lot pitchy," Jarett Wieselman ranted.
    Even celebrities dissed Boyle's performance.
    "Susan Boyle is so overrated," she tweeted. Adding, in a second post, that "yes, she can sing, but it's not about talent with her is it? she seems like a lovely lady but if its about talent, that Shaheen kid should win."

    She was nervous, well after the huge publicity who can blame her? But later she hit those big notes pretty well. Now imagine her with some formal training.

    NYPost - the bastion of culture :lol:

    (I admit I'm uncouth but I still wouldn't read that crap paper).
