Susan Boyle - Susan Boyle Stops Midway Through Song On Live Television

SUSAN BOYLE, the 49-year-old Scottish singing sensation, suffered an embarrassing mishap during a live television appearance on 'The View', yesterday (30th November 2010) after she stopped singing midway through her song and asked "Can we do it again?", reports the UK's Daily Mail.
Boyle began her rendition of the Christmas carol 'O Holy Night' during a live taping of the US chat-show, but viewers saw the singer suddenly begin coughing and clutching her stomach. After leaning away from the microphone, Boyle asked the crew whether they could re-record the performance, seemingly unaware that the show was going out live. Hosts SHERRI SHEPHERD and WHOOPI GOLDBERG rushed across to where Boyle was standing and the singer remarked, "I'm sorry, I had a bit of a frog in my throat".
Although the mishap was witnessed by east coast viewers, Boyle was able to re-record the song for the rest of the country. Her performance was part of a promotional tour for her second album 'The Gift', which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 last week, with sales increasing by 5 per cent in its second week.

I just happened to see Ms. Boyle's performance here on the east coast and her obvious distress trying to catch her breath and coughing could not be ignored. Despite past trash news and harassment when she came out of nowhere with this amazing talent, I do hope that responsibility will be the order of the day in just LEAVING THIS EPISODE ALONE! As for Ms. Boyle, I say thank you for an exquisite and thrilling (though abridged) rendition of my all time favorite hymn, O Holy Night. Listening to her is, as the ladies said, like hearing the angels sing. I get chills just from her opening notes and I will follow her music as long as I can. Hurrah to you, Ms. Boyle and Cheers To The New Year!!

Thank you Susan for doing your performances live, proving that you are the real deal, and not lip snicing! I loved the cute expression on her face when "the frog" won! And what a trooper to redo the song flawlessly, receive a standing ovation from the audience, and have it for the later performances in the rest of the country. Susan and her voice are truly The Gift!
