So I trust everyone has seen the Susan Boyle video? The one from Britain’s Got Talent . If you haven’t seen it, check it out (here). It’s one of those ones where Simon Cowell thinks the woman is going to sing shit, but then she throws out a belter. Ashton Kutcher Twittered about the clip, which apparently sent it into turbo boost around the world. I didn’t publish it, because I see amazing things every day and it didn’t tweak me enough. But it certainly tweaked you lot, as I discovered in my inbox.
So that was that. But then came along a little kid from Swansea, Wales, who is using Susan Boyle to mop the floor.
I’ll tell you about him shortly, but first I want to explain something to you. watching this video was pretty big for me as I had all the Michael Jackson videos as a kid. You know, those documentary-type videos about him growing up and the full story about his life. One of my most favourite parts was a video of Michael Jackson as a kid performing Smokey Robinson’s “Who’s Loving You” with the Jackson Five live on the Ed Sullivan Show, December 14, 1969. It was a bit of a mind fuck.
Before I show you the kid from Wales, check this out to understand the vibe.
Pretty impressive, wouldn’t you agree?
It kind of makes sense that he achieved what he did – and became as eccentric and bonkers as he did.
So that aside, you have to check out this video of Sheheen Jafargholi. He starts with Amy Winehouse’s Valerie which he KILLS. But then Simon Cowell stops him and asks if he’s got anything else. Turns out he does – “Who’s Loving You” by Michael Jackson, says the kid.
And then he nails it.
I come from a rich musical background and it takes a bit to impress me; and I’m not kidding you, I had goose bumps all over and a tear in my eye.
