Susan Boyle Makes a Triumphant Stage Return in London’s Wembley Stadium

Susan Boyle made a triumphant return to the stage after missing four concerts this week on the Britain’s Got Talent show’s live tour. The singer had taken a hiatus after stellar performances in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland, and returned to the tour at Wembley Arena where she delivered yet another standout performance. The 48-year-old singer received a standing ovation when she appeared at Wembley, in London. She gave a standout performance of I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables, which brought her international fame when she first performed it on the ITV1 show.

Susan Boyle from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland defies categorization and expectation, and prevails despite sometimes negative media coverage and rampant speculation. She demonstrates that whether or not she is able to appear at all of the BGT tour dates, she is resilient in pursuing her music career.

Susan Boyle Live in Glasgow: Subo Goan Yersel!!

It’s been a few months, a time of exhausting worldwide fame and rehab, but finally last night (6/15/2009) Susan Boyle returned to where it all began. Susan was back in Glasgow, this time not auditioning, but as the undisputed star of the live tour of Britain’s Got Talent. To thunderous applause, the singer looked a million dollars in an outfit fit for a star as she took to the stage. Host Stephen Mulhern introduced her by saying, “Now it’s time to welcome the most Googled lady on earth. The world’s talking about one lady. This lady.”

The crowd of 9,000 rose to their feet and roared with joy as Susan walked onto the stage. On television, her performances of Memory had sometimes been a bit shaky, but last night she belted out the song in a clear, powerful voice. The end of the song saw her second ovation as she took in the screams of fans of all ages. As the crowd roared on, Susan went straight into her signature tune, I Dreamed A Dream, and with more ovations and cries of “Susan, Susan” and “Subo Goan Yersel!” she waved happily at the crowd of admirers.

Susan Boyle Sings Memory: Delivers the Performance of Her Life

Susan Boyle, Britain’s Got Talent sensation, delivered the performance of her life in the semi-finals on Sunday 24th May 2009.  She sang Memory from the musical Cats, made famous by Elaine Paige.  Susan won the viewers vote for this heat and will now compete in the finals on Saturday 30th, May 2009.

Even the always ever-so snarky Gawker website had this to say about Susan Boyle today:

At this point, she could cover Sid Vicious covering Sinatra’s My Way, and we’d be there with a YouTube embed, ready to lap it up.  And that’s kind of okay.  Susan Boyle’s one of the few things keeping us all sincere.  What I mean by that is: if you don’t like Susan Boyle, you can go die.  This bitch’s on wheels, and kiss, no kiss, nothing’s getting in her path to the top.  Nothing.”
