    Biography

    Forty seven year old Susan Boyle from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, UK, is a church volunteer and contestant on the 3rd series of Britain's Got Talent. She surprised the judges and audience with a vibrant performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misarables in the first round of the competition that is scheduled to be aired on 11 April 2009. She got a standing ovation from the live audience and elicited the "biggest yes in three seasons" from Piers Morgan and "yes"-votes from both Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden. Simon Cowell is reported to be setting up a contract with Susan Boyle with his SyCo Music company label, a subsidiary of Sony Music.

    Susan Boyle's success has been widely covered by media.The majority of British newspapers carried articles on Boyle's performance and subsequent internet coverage. For example an article was published in The Sun, where she was given the nickname Paula Potts by Colin Robertson in reference to the contest's previous opera singing winner Paul Potts. During an interview with the Daily Mirror, Susan Boyle revealed the fact she had a meeting with the Sony BMG record company.

    Several international news websites too published stories on her such as the New York Daily News and Australia's Herald Sun. In the ABC News coverage which gave hint that Boyle may be "...Britain's newest pop sensation...". Its entertainment section posts the headline The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell. After susan's performance Cowell went on to say, "She had a great voice and I was really surprised by her."

    However, a columnist in The Guardian pointed out the difference between Boyle's hostile reception and the more neutral response to Paul Potts in his first audition. It is also suggested that society seemed to expect women to be both good-looking and talented, while no such expectations are made about men.

    Afterher performance on Britain's Got Talent, Susan Boyle appeared as a guest on STV's The Five Thirty Show.

    In addition, the most popular YouTube video submission of her audition garnered nearly 2.5 million views in the first 72 hours. It received 99 site honors based on views, ratings, and other factors. On 16th April 16, 2009, the video had been viewed more than ten million times and received over 50,000 comments.

    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. The same video also got famous on Reddit, with enough clout to top this site's front page.

    So far as her personal life is concerned, Boyle is the youngest of 9 children and lives in Blackburn with her ten-year-old cat, Pebbles. Boyle suffered oxygen deprivation during birth, thereby resulting in learning disabilities. Her classmates teased her because of this and also because of her appearance. She stopped her pursuit of singing to look after her sick mother who died in the year 2007, at the age of ninety one. Her performance on Britain�s Got Talent was the first time that Boyle had sung after her mother's death. She is unmarried and presently unemployed. Susan aspires to become a musical theatre singer in the vein of Elaine Paige.
