Susan Boyle (born 1961)[1] is a Scottish[2] amateur singer and church volunteer who came to public attention on 11 April 2009,[3] when she appeared as a contestant on the third series of Britain's Got Talent.[4] Boyle found fame when she sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables in the competition's first round.[5]

Before she sang, both the audience and the judges appeared to express scepticism based on her unpolished appearance. In contrast, her vocal performance was so well received that she has been dubbed "The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell."[6] She received a standing ovation from the live audience, garnering yes-votes from Cowell and Amanda Holden, and the "biggest yes I have ever given anybody" from Piers Morgan.[7] The audition was recorded in January 2009 at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland,[8] and was first broadcast on Saturday, 11 April 2009 in Britain.

The juxtaposition of the reception to her voice with the audience's first impression of her triggered global interest. Articles about her appeared in newspapers all over the world, while the numbers who watched videos of her audition set an online record.[9] By 20 April 2009, a mere 9 days after her televised debut, viral videos of her audition, subsequent interviews of her, and her 1999 rendition of "Cry Me a River" had been viewed over 100 million times on the Internet.[10] The clip is expected to pass the record for an online video of 120 million views in a matter of days.[11] Cowell is reported to be setting up a contract with Boyle with his Syco Music company label, a subsidiary of Sony Music.[12]

Cameron Mackintosh, the producer of the Les Misérables musical, also praised the performance, stating: "Just like the judges and audience, I was gob-smacked by the emotional powerhouse performance of Susan Boyle's show-stopping rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream". Vocally, it is one of the best versions of the song I've ever heard - touching, thrilling and uplifting. I do hope she gets to sing it for the Queen."[13]
