Susan Boyle performed her signature song I Dreamed a Dream on the Britain’s Got Talent finale.  Did her performance win the hearts of Britain?  Unfortunately, it did not.  The pumped up, innovative dance group Diversity blew the British viewers and judges away.  Wow!  What a performance.  Amazing choreography paired with great music selections.  My favorite performance, however, is Julian Smith, a music teacher.  He gave a very moving performance of Somewhere from West Side Story.  Although he finished third, I hope he gets his chance at fame one day.  Kenny G, watch out!

Susan Boyle was a gracious contestant.


If you are looking for a great book to read over the summer, read The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. The book is about a librarian (Henry) who has a gene that allows him to involuntarily time travel. While he time travels, he would meet his future wife (Claire) from her childhood to adulthood. I read this book about two years ago and I can’t stop raving about it to friends. It is a science fiction and a romantic novel combined in one. I have to say that both men and women will enjoy this book. It gets better! Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana will play the leading roles in the film adaptation!!! OMG. It will be released in theaters this August 14th. I can’t wait to see it!
