1. Ugh... I have no TV... Will need to wait for it to show up online...
I'm glad she did well... The Wild Horses single is on a few websites, and it's a great cover.

5. I'm sorry, but I think LENO is going to kill off our 10 P.M.ET line-up
I've never liked him, but he killed my Dave for 17 yrs, and at this hour I want to chill with whatevever beyond our heavy duty pundits.

18. As a choir director told me last April, "Boyle's a BEAST of a singer." High praise, indeed.
I guess he was right.

I haven't done a study on 'epic' but I'll wager 'epic fail' is much funnier now than it was a year ago.

I dig that about her

45. maybe that's why it sounds like it has so much feeling
I sang at a funeral recently, and let me tell you, not easy to sing when you're got the added issue of holding back the tears.

51. I'm not really a singer
I sing karaoke from time to time, and I've sung at a few family weddings and funerals. When I was in high school, I won a trophy for "Most Valuable--Chorus" but I'm not going to tell you how many years ago THAT was. LOL

50. Wow....
Who would have guessed what a great song choice that would be for her?

She really does have a lovely voice, and I'm glad she didn't just become an internet flash in the pan.
