Entertainer Rosie O’Donnell was among the millions of Americans who were blown away by Susan Boyle’s performance at Britain’s Got Talent. Interviewed while showcasing her artwork at a Florida gallery on Sunday, O’Donnell told People the world should “enjoy (Boyle’s performance) for what it was.” “Here is this freaky miss, a fat, ugly girl, like Shrek comes to life, directing energy towards her soul,” O’Donnell told the magazine. “This was so rare … something authentic in a world that is usually manufactured. It was a perfect moment which will never happen again.”
