The only other video from this show that I've seen was a couple years ago when some ugly, chubby guy with bad teeth sang his ass off in a similar manner. The shock doesn't seem to be coming from the fact that they are good singers, as there are a lot of good singers on these types of shows, the shock seems to be that they are ugly and good singers. As if it's so amazing and absolutely astounding that someone who isn't physically attractive could possess this kind of talent. To be clear, I think this lady is an amazing singer, and there would have been a reaction had she been pretty, or even "average" looking, but I doubt it would be all over the internet and on World News Tonight with Charlie Gibson (where I first saw this). People seem amazed that someone who is fat and ugly can do something other than sit there being fat and ugly.
