Cheeky Susan Boyle: She Dreams a Dream
I Dreamed a Dream (Les Miserables)
The studio audience enjoying Britain’s Got Talent this weekend broke out in laughter when they got their first look at Susan Boyle. The unemployed Scottish woman drew giggles from the judges when she told them her ambition was to be a professional singer. Frumpy, nervous and inching toward late middle age, the dowdy 47 year-old Susan Boyle ended up wowing the judges with her smashing performance in the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent, singing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. No one’s laughing now, because she’s become a Cinderella Diva!
For now Susan Boyle, the middle-aged church volunteer whose soaring performance turned her into the world’s newest instant celebrity, is trying to catch her breath. “All the attention has been quite an upheaval, and she is quite tired,” Miss Boyle’s brother, John, told reporters on Thursday outside her little cottage in tiny, previously unexciting Blackburn, Scotland. “I have taken her away to let her have some peace and quiet before the next round.”
