The singing sensation, Susan Boyle, sang I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables on the final round of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent Saturday. She received a standing ovation from the audience and judges for the song she had chosen for her initial audition in April. Unfortunately, she placed second in the final, losing the crown to a dance troupe called Diversity.
The 48-year-old Susan Boyle had been the favourite of bookmakers and millions of fans around the world. But round-the-clock media scrutiny had begun to get on her nerves. Earlier last week, she got into a shouting match with two reporters who were harassing her.
Rumours soon followed that Ms. Boyle was on the verge of leaving the show before the finals and was on the verge of breaking down. However, she was moved to a “safe house” and made it to the final on schedule.
You can see her wonderful performance here.
