Most televised talent shows have proven to us that looks can be deceiving. Remember Susan Boyle? This lovely lady first appeared as a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 where she sang the famous Les Miserables song, “I Dreamed A Dream”. Before her performance, the audience as well as the judges (well maybe just Simon Cowell), were unsure of what to think of Susan when she first came up on stage, but this quickly changed when she started singing. 14 year old Shiane Hawke from the X Factor Australia also wowed the judges last year with her jaw-dropping performance of Duffy’s “Mercy”. She might have seemed shy in the beginning, but Shiane blew everyone away with her powerful voice. There are so many more like them in other shows such as American Idol, where we saw powerhouse Jessica Sanchez and soulful Heejun Han rock the AI stage.
