Britain’s Got Talent swings into the semi-final stage, treating the world to anther musical gem from Susan Boyle. Though no Andrew Lloyd Webber fan (a career of regurgitating the success of Jesus Christ Superstar), I do appreciate a few of his melodies, notable among them, Memories from Cats. Miss Boyle, her remake cunningly restrained, shows true grit in tackling this elusive song with its downbeat body and oddly placed crescendo. I don’t believe in song contests — art and entertainment are not really measurable quantities — but I am grateful when they reveal talent like Susan Boyle’ｓ. I doubt anyone with a love of music and an internet connection has missed her debut or this follow-up, but I’ll post it here just in case.
