I've got nothing against the BGT judges, but I am glad that they issued an apology. Piers Morgan said:
"I would just like to apologize to Susan Boyle, because I think it's long overdue, because, from the clip, you know, (millions of) people could see that Simon Cowell (the third judge that night -- he of "American Idol" fame) and I -- we don't have the best reputations, I think, for courtesy in America. I think we owe her on apology because it was an amazing performance. As I said, we were all laughing at her when she started, and by the end, the last laugh was on her."
Clearly, we have all learned a valuable lesson from this...you really can't judge a book by its cover! Susan Boyle...you rock!
