Susan Boyle : something to be seen!!!!!!

By Krikor K.

It was 11 April 2009 when Susan Boyle appeared on the stage of the talent show "Britain's Got Talent" (3rd series) to make her dream come true : to sing in front of a big audience. She managed to surprise both judges and audience after singing "I dreamed a dream" from "les Miserables" in the competinion's first round elicting the "biggest yes in three season" from all three judges!

Take a look at the comments of the three judges :

Piers Morgan :
Without a doubt that was the biggest surprise I have had in three years on the show. When you stood there with that cheeky grin and said, "I wanna be like Elaine Paige", everyone was laughing at you. No one is laughing now. That was stunning, an incredible performance. Amazing. I'm reeling from shock.

Amanda Holden : I am so thrilled because I know that everybody was against you. I honestly think that we were all being very cynical and I think that's the biggest wake up call ever. And I just want to say that it was a complete privilege listening to that.

Simon Cowell : Susan Boyle, you can head back to the village, with your head held high, it's three yesses.

The majority of British newspapers carried articles on Susan Boyle's performance and subsequent internet coverage, including "The Dainly Telegraph" and "The Sun" where she was given the nickname Paula Potts in reference to the contest's previous opera singing winner Paul Potts. In an interview with the "Daily Mirror" Susan confirmed she had a meeting with Sony BMG record company but said "I can't say much about it. It's early days and I'm taking baby steps!!"

International news websites also carried stories on her such as the "New York Daily News" and Australia's "Herald Sun". In the "ABC News" coverage which suggested that Boyle may be "...Britain's newest pop sensation...", the Entertainment section posts the headline The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell. Cowell went on to say after her performance: "She had a great voice and I was really surprised by her"...

On the day following the performance, the YouTube video was the number one article for all categories on Digg, with nearly triple the votes ("diggs") of the second most popular.

Susan is the youngest of nine children and lives in Blackburn, West Lothian (Scottland) with her ten year old cat, Pebbles. She stopped her pursuit of singing to look after her sick mother who died in 2007 at the age of 91...
