I dreamed a dream

There's been substantial coverage of the British singer, Susan Boyle, and her appearance on England's version of American Idol. More than 30 million people have seen her singing on YouTube.

On the one hand, I'm happy for her. Indeed, she's a talented songstress.

On the other, I'm slightly perplexed. Why is everyone so surprised? Honestly, what does her appearance have to do with her being able to sing? Why is this such a shock?
