Susan Boyle and Simon Cowell beware – Here comes the power of Shaheen Jafargholi, Twitter and Demi Moore..Britain’s Got Talent alright!!!
Posted April 20, 2009on:
Simon Cowell and Susan Boyle are shaking in their pants, respectively. Britain’s finally got some talent. Enter boy wonder Shaheen Jafargholi. The 12 year old from Wales has taken the world by surprise. A week ago and nobody would have beleived if you’d said Susan Boyle may not win the show. She practically owns the show or atleast almost all of the psychic air-waves in Britain which she uses to convince viewers that she is in fact a “never-been-kissed virgin” living with her cat, Pebbles(who by the way i totally believe deserves some recognition for putting up with someone as ‘deliberatley unkempt’ as Susan)
Shaheen Jafargholi is the nemesis and i’m loving it. I know he’s small and cute and all but the lad sings really well. Demi Moore is in love with him. She tweeted “Wow this kid is something else!” after watching the boy’s performance online. Once Twitter loves this boy, he should be a worthy opponenent to the “not-so-cute-anymore” Susan Boyle.
Shaheen performed the Motown hit, Who’s Lovin’ You. The song was originally sung by the young Michael Jackson who also happens to be Shaheen’s idol. Bookies consider the kid to be the strongest threat to the much-hyped Susan Boyle and her wily ways.
Simon Cowell went on GMTV last week to say that there is still a contest. Of course there is..there needs to be one..or else why would anyone turn their televisions on. The shrewd businessman he is, Simon Cowell has sensed that rumours are starting to gather heat whether Susan Boyle really is what she claims to be (which she is, so not). He needs the show to stay ‘riveting’ for atleast a couple of more weeks before everyone knows the ‘oh-so-obvious’ truth.
The only problem with Shaheen’s performance was that even though he passed the goosebump test, he did’nt make anyone cry like Susan did. I still think people cried beacause when she sang, they realised that they would have to look at ‘that face’ for a long time to come.
Time will tell if the boy-wonder could defeat the evil Simon Cowell and his wily ‘cash-cow’ Susan Boyle.

Susan Boyle is a sensation. She is Britain’s talent, the new face of “embracing womanhood” and a living example of success sans beauty. She is “oh my god…blah…blah…love her…and some more blah“. I have had enough of it already. Somebody please wake up the viewers from their fantastic journey into the dreamy lands of Susan Boyle and the despised comb. I’m still reeling under the fact that not just Britain but Simon Cowell’s masterpiece has spread like wildfire all across the world. The media lights go flashing and Simon Cowell goes cashing. Every time I see Susan Boyle and Simon Cowell together, I can’t hear her ‘brilliant’ songs but all I hear is ‘Ka-ching‘.
The reason why I wrote this and you read this…
I am amongst the chosen few on the path of enlightenment, attempting to wake the gullible millions but my attempts go futile daily. Well, there’s always a tomorrow and if I don’t get them, reality sure will. I am sure the recession has had some effect on the feel-good factor that Susan Boyle brings to the table. I wonder how many of the job seeking men and women wake up everyday to go for an interview and show up with ‘unkempt hair’. How many actually ‘dare to dream that dream‘? I sometimes feel helpless, sitting there watching millions of videos being thrust in your face of a woman who is against washing her hair and being hailed for it. Billions of people searching online for her, if she has clean teeth, six fingers on a hand or tattoos under those grandma dresses. I feel like the last guy on the planet to see through this bullsh** but there is someone or something that lurks behind the shadows. Someone who knows all about Susan Boyle, her ‘boyfriends‘, her ‘virginity‘,’kisses‘ and a lot more…Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Pebbles, Susan Boyle’s cat.
Pebbles : I dreamed a dream and Susan killed it…
Pebbles has seen it all and very tired of its owner’s startling episode of stardom. Pebbles has been with Susan since she had been singing with combs but never brushing with them. Pebbles was with Susan when Simon Cowell came up with one of the biggest scams in the history of ‘reality television’. Pebbles was there when Susan dreamed a dream to become the female Paul Potts. Pebbles has seen it all and is very tired. It had hoped that Susan would start combing her hair at least for television but that never happened. It had hoped that the Grandma dresses would return to the drawers but they never did. It had hoped that Simon would stop visiting but that’s not going to happen anytime soon. So, Pebbles, too, had dreamed a dream but Susan, not life, killed it. A dream of a clean owner with less than two chins, lazy mornings with no choir practice and some Tuna once in a while. It not working out well for Pebbles. I feel for it. Maybe we all should be feeling for Pebbles rather than Susan Boyle because if anyone or anything has got talent to putting up with sh** 24×7…it’s my good friend, Pebbles.
If you feel for Pebbles, leave a word, shout or a meow for him…
Susan Boyle is an enigma in reality TV circles these days. The 47 year old Scottish woman has touched millions of hearts with her unkempt hair, her puppy dog face and her blanked expressions. The lady is an overnight superstar with more searches and hits than Britney Spears at the present moment, which brings me to the worrying realisation that what if it’s all a gimmick? What if under her loose clothes and even looser skin, lurks a diva just biding her time before the finale erupts on unsuspecting Britain. Considering the fact that she is the most popular thing in Britain at the moment, what would you say is stopping her grabbing a comb, throwing out her grandma pants and unleashing the ‘diva’ within? Well it is the dark lord, alright. The dark side of Simon Cowell is much darker than we thought. His ‘cruel remarks’ on reality television is an art in itself but with Susan Boyle, he has taken the game to a whole new level.
He says Britain’s got Talent. I say they got talent alright. It takes a lot of effort to reassure audiences initially that Susan Boyle got through the first few rounds as she could sing well. Well, my cat can sing well too but it never leaves the house without brushing its hair. What reality television demands are lookers and by god, Susan Boyle is precious in these times. She is Simon’s hidden weapon which disarms viewers from their personal insecurities of the contestants looking better than them and then takes the same viewers to a whole new level filled with pity, sympathy and admiration. Simon Cowell has endured Paula Abdul long enough to know that ‘Make-up’ is not the answer to everything. He has gone for the ugly duckling instead.
Media is filled with reports of “The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell.” She is the new face of hope. Susan Boyle is the ray of light that has banished the ‘Dark Lord’ from his lair. I say give me a break and a big one at that ’cause while everyone seems to be falling head over heels on Simon’s masterpiece, I wonder how many of us can actually see the light?
This is what is happening ( or could have happened for all those who are going to come back to this page when I’d be saying” I told you so”). Susan Boyle is not what she seems. Susan Boyle is youngest of nine and I’m scared to think what the other eight look like. She has a ten year cat Pebbles that probably gets a spanking every time it tries to fix Susan’s hair. It’s not the cat’s fault. They like owners with combs and Pebbles hasn’t seen one on Susan since she got used to the fact that Simon visits more now than ever before.
She say’s she’s never had a boyfriend. I say not till she met someone like Simon. She say’s she’s never been kissed. I say once she wins this thing, we’ll have her singing “I kissed a girl” live with Katie Perry. They say she is the most talented woman on TV today. I’d say if you look closely through that lovely set of hair and you’ll see Paul Potts beaming at his second coming.
Simon Cowell has created an enigma which he knows very well how to market. He’s got talent. Britain’s got Susan Boyle. Everyone’s got fooled. She is a dream come true but only for the producers who are laughing all the way to the bank, right as we speak. Media suggests Simon Cowell showed his softer side after Susan’s performance. I say he was just falling in love with the woman who’s giving him what none could give before. Sky rocketing TRP’s.
When this show gets over, everyone would be glad Susan won. Simon Cowell might be the richest in UK, maybe after the Queen. Susan would get a long-due make-over and transform herself into another Paula Abdul (well she’s been kept away from the mirror too long, I think she deserves it). Simon would then be heart-broken at what could have been. Susan would become a multi-millionaire pop star. The viewer’s would be shocked. The world would be in a tizzy at all that’s happening around them. All that would be left are me and Pebbles shaking our heads. If only you had taken Pebbles more seriously. I did.
The Final 7 results of American Idol saw Kris Allen’s brilliant performance transforming him from a ‘cute looker’ participant to almost a second favorite to win this season’s American Idol. The bookies, namely William Hill, have Kris Allen down to 6/1 whilst Danny Gokey is 4/1 with a couple of the bookies. Even American Idol David Cook has singled out Adam Lambert and Kris Allen as his favorites this year.
Kris performed “Falling Slowly” from the soundtrack of the movie “Once”. The song was the 2007 Academy-Award winner for Best Original Song, composed by professional partners Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
On the results show, Kris stood with Lil Rounds, while Ryan announced one of them was in the bottom three. I felt kinda silly to feel tense ’cause i knew Lil Rounds had the worst night amongst everyone so she had to be the one to be in danger and as expected, she was. What was not expected and very surprising was Simon Cowell when he said that he did not get to comment last night but “Kris, you were brilliant”. Coming from Simon, I’m sure the weeks to come would see Kris Allen slipping past Danny Gokey to set up a finale with Adam Lambert, who i must say is worthy to win so far. I think the Season 8 heartthrob is just about to bring his best his best to the show in the coming weeks.
As expected, the Oscar winning song has become the latest craze for music lovers.It is currently at the 29th most downloaded song on iTunes. After Kris’ performance, millions of fans swarmed the internet for lyrics and details of “Falling Slowly“.
Do you think Kris has got what it takes to go all the way? Leave me your opinions below…
