Simon: “Alright, thank you very much, Susan. Peers.”
David: “Without a doubt, that was the biggest surprise I have had in three years on this show. When you stood there, with that cheeky grin, and said, ‘I want to be like Elaine Paige,’ everyone was laughing at you. No one is laughing now.

That was stunning. An incredible performance.

Amazing. I’m really shocked. What about you?”

Amanda: “I am so thrilled, because I know that everybody was against you. I honestly think that we were all being very cynical and — that’s the biggest wake up call ever.

And I just wanted to say, that was a complete privilege listening to that.”

Simon: “Susan, I knew the minute you walked out . . . on that stage, that we were going to hear something extraordinary.

And I was right.

Susan, you are a little tiger, aren’t you?”

Simon: “Okay, moment of truth, peers, yes or no?”
David: “The biggest ‘YES’ I have every given in any place.
Amanda: “Yes, definitely. Brilliant.”
Simon: “Susan Boyle, you can go back to your village with your head held high with 3 yeses.”
