A YOUNG Susan Boyle missed out on TV fame 14 years ago after Michael Barrymore failed to spot her star quality.
The Daily Record unearthed exclusive video footage of Susan auditioning for Barrymores My Kind of People talent show in 1995.
Her rendition of I Dont Know How To Love Him was caught on camcorder by 18-year-old Julie Febers, whose mum Elizabeth MacLean was also auditioning.
Susan, then 33, is dressed in a cerise pink jacket, navy skirt, and smart black shoes with her long dark curly hair pinned back.
But as Susan begins to sing, Barrymore starts acting the fool and lolls about on the floor trying to get a glimpse up her skirt.
Unfazed, Susan gamely continues and cheekily tries to kick the comic with her black patent stilettos.
But she fails to win over Barrymore at a packed Olympia Shopping Centre in East Kilbride. And as she finishes, he plants a huge smacker on Susanâ€™s lips - perhaps her first-ever kiss?
Standing just a few paces behind Susan in the audition queue was mum-of-two Elizabeth, 52, of Pollokshaws, Glasgow, who did get through with ballad The Power of Love.
Elizabeth said: â€œSusan was a few people in front of me.
â€œWhen she began to sing I knew she had a great voice, but Barrymore was intent on taking the mickey out of her.â€
for my opinion:
from that video i understand that :
britan got talent is a fake show
she is profesional singer.
and all of her ridiculous image at the minit that she first entered to the stage in britan gat talent was staged by the editor of this show .
thay told her to act like that to get hige reacction from the audience.
and she is smarter much more from the image that present to the viewer.
she will win in that show it's clear.
but britan got talent is fake show.
