Susan Boyle is the definition of an underdog. She appeared as a contestant on the TV program Britain’s Got Talent in April of 2009. On her first appearance on the show, she had to sing in front of three judges to move onto the next round in the talent competition, one of the judges being the infamous and brutally honest Simon Cowell. If you were watching the show at the time, you most likely would think there was no way she would advance to the next round and get past the judges. Boyle was aware that the audience on the show was initially hostile to her because of her appearance, but she has refused to change her image. Boyle told The Sunday Times, “I know what they were thinking, but why should it matter as long as I can sing? It’s not a beauty contest.” Even the judges doubted her just by the look on their faces. Boyle is a classic example of never judging a book by its cover. We all thought “oh no, here we go again” and we were wrong. Now she is a platinum award singer who created the UK best-selling debut album of all time. Whenever people doubt you by who you are or what you look like, prove them otherwise with your inner beauty.
