Today, Susan Boyle performed "O Holy Night" on The View. About 30 seconds into the performance, Boyle's voice cracked so badly that she was forced to cut it short, before Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg awkwardly danced around the debacle.

Update: Holy shit, can we talk about this a bit more? As many commenters have pointed out, there are some things in the video besides SuBo's performance that need mention, including:

  • Goldberg looking like the Grim Reaper in a graveyard as she walks across the stage (1:15 mark), and
  • a phantom belch (1:40 mark).

If you notice any other noteworthy moments, leave a comment and I'll add to the list.

Second Update: Someone on Twitter alerted me to this YouTube video on The View's official channel, which features a different (and full!) performance by Boyle of the same song—which suggests that she was allowed to re-record it at some point. Yay for second chances? Watch below:
