Best Impersonation of a (Formerly) Northwest Musician

Susan Boyle

Remember when Mick Fleetwood auditioned for Spinal Tap wearing a flame-retardant suit? Fans of Britain's Got Talent or Aberdeen upstarts the Melvins can be forgiven for briefly believing that grumpy frontman Buzz Osborne was attempting to pull a similar stunt when his unkempt doppelgänger Susan Boyle took the stage in front of Simon and company for her now-famous rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream." She had the curls, the grin, and the attitude. Like Osborne, she likely—albeit inadvertently—inspired a generation of budding singers.—Chris Kornelis
