The clip I’m linking to below is the sort of emotional pornography best left for made-for-television custody battle melodramas or tearfully exploitative episodes of Extreme Home Makeover.
But, for whatever reason, I’m feeling particularly maudlin today. So here goes.
Below, find an audition from the UK version of America’s Got Talent — entitled Britain’s Got Talent. I’m not sure which actually came first (probably the UK version — it always seems to work out that way), but I’m not sure either country really wants to claim it. The three judges are Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell and hot English woman.
The following audition is from a plain-looking middle-aged woman who is a self-professed virginal cat lady. When she comes on stage, the audience clearly expects her to fail miserably — like the ridiculously cruel first few episodes of every season of American Idol.
