A Nail In Cynicism's Coffin

Perhaps you are not one of the eighteen-gazillion people who've seen this already. If you haven't, get ready to have your "glass-is-half-empty" template completely obliterated by the following few minutes, as this British woman, devoid of any single trapping that would make her a contender for a cultural phenomenon that bedrocks itself on narcissism and facade, breaks every rule.

Worth noting the snarky girl at 1:23 who wouldn't step out of her Ashlee Simpson doppelganger hairdo if her life depended on it. I have a feeling she may have had her attitudes rearranged for a bit. Even better, the two British guys that are backstage, totally relishing the reaction to the human plutonium they knew they just escorted to the stage:

I love how she was totally confident in what was about to happen - she rocked that audience!

I honestly watched this 4 times in a row! I love it when stuff like this happens - loved the look on the judges faces when she started singing. A bit of backpeddeling on their part - wouldn't you say?

That girl at 1:23 has taken a beating since this thing hit the internet, and of course everyone in that audience deserves a good smack, but knowing how crowd shots can be edited, there's no telling for sure who she was "snarking" at. Who knows, it may have been towards Simon. In that case, you go snarkey girl!
