Susan Boyle appears on US TV as Oprah gets interested

17 APRIL 2009
Less than a week since Susan Boyle won the hearts of the nation with her rousing rendition of I Dreamed A Dream on Britain's Got Talent, the West Lothian church volunteer has become a global star.

The thrilled 48-year-old's story - along with the video clip of her wowing Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges during her audition - has been picked up by the media in countries as far flung as New Zealand, France and America.

Interest has been so high across the pond in the wake of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher mentioning her on their Twitter accounts, Susan was invited to appear on breakfast show Good Morning America.

Speaking by satellite from Britain, Susan who is expected to sing Whistle Down The Wind in the next stage of the competition - told host Diane Sawyer, "I can't really believe this is happening."

Simon had some more good news to share this week about her prospects in the US. "She just had an offer from Oprah to do her show," he said. "If she went on Oprah I think there's every chance of a number one album in America. I will predict that."

Already the favourite to win Britain's Got Talent, Susan - whose performance has now racked up an incredible 12 million hits on YouTube is expected to follow in the footsteps of former mobile phone salesman Paul Potts, who fulfilled his dream of becoming an opera singer after winning the first series of the show.
