Live-streaming Susan Boyle
Fans of the Scottish singing sensation just might be able to stream the semifinals live, starting Sunday.
Update at 6:30 p.m. PDT: Details on the semifinals have been added.
Fans of Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle have been counting down the days to the semifinals of "Britain's Got Talent."
Of course, most of us (yes, I am one of her fans, big time) don't normally try to watch British TV live. After spending a bit of time scouring the Net to figure out how to watch her performance in the semifinals, I found one of her fan sites that pointed to a Justin.tv channel's stream.
On Saturday's show, the judges revealed the 40 semifinalists. Boyle, of course, was among them.
On Sunday, the semifinalists will begin competing. According to the Associated Press, Boyle will be singing on Sunday and her performance will be almost instantly available on the Internet. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. GMT, which translates to 12:30 p.m. PDT.
A single video featuring Boyle's first "Britain's Got Talent" performance has lured more than 59 million views, pushing it into YouTube's top 25 most-viewed videos ever. But her true reach is hard to calculate. As of May 1, which feels like an eon ago, videos of her performance had altogether been viewed 186 million times, according to market researcher Visible Measures.
By the way, if you have any other suggestions for live-streaming "Britain's Got Talent," please share.
