During a live performance of "O Holy Night" today on The View, Susan Boyle's voice cracked. She ended the song without giving it another try. Sherri Shepherd, trying to smooth things over, said it was "beautiful."
That was really beautiful, and I don't think Sherri was trying to smooth anything over ~ I think she was being truthful. Clearly SB's voice just wasn't all there for this particular song, at this particular moment, but I'm sure she's more than capable of performing O Holy Night (a really challenging song), magnificently. She did the right thing; better to stop and preserve your instrument than soldier on and strain your voice.
