If you’ve been watching Britain’s Got Talent for years, you probably know who Susan Boyle is. She was that woman who amazed the world with just her dream and talent.
As she returns to the series nine years later, this time on America’s Got Talent, she’s even more fabulous. With her black glittering gown, it wasn’t just her looks that changed dramatically from her first audition. She has clearly honed her talent further.
Susan performed the iconic tune “Wild Horses.” It was one of the songs on her I Dreamed a Dream album and the same song she performed on the 4th season of AGT in 2009. It marked her first ever appearance on US television.
As expected, everyone was so happy to see her back on stage. Simon looked surprised to see her enter the competition. Howie and Heidi stood up from their seats, along with everybody else, to give Susan a really warm welcome.
It turns out that they weren’t the only ones excited for the competition. Susan was also eager to step on the stage and show how much her talent has grown over the years, particularly to Simon.
Before her performance, she shared:
“[I’m] excited to show Simon how much I’ve grown since the last time he saw me. It’s my golden opportunity to have that promise fulfilled.”
And she did not disappoint as she delivered a really outstanding performance. She was able to hit the notes with precision and the emotion she poured into her performance was truly captivating. Everyone in the audience, as well as the judges, were amazed. It’s as if it’s the first time they’ve heard Susan perform.
And with that, Mel B pushed the Golden Buzzer for her, believing that she’s giving Susan something she deserves. She felt really honored to sit down in front of Susan and just listen to her voice.
Back in 2009, Susan made it to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent. However, she was beaten by the dance troupe Diversity, despite being the clear favorite.
Even after what happened, Susan continued to work hard for her dreams. After her loss, she was able to release her debut studio album, “I Dreamed a Dream,” which became UK’s best selling debut album in history. She has also been nominated twice for the Grammy Awards. She appeared in a lot of shows and performed in several events after the competition. She put a lot of effort into becoming a champion for those people who don’t have a voice and those people who are often ignored.
Truly, Susan isn’t just an inspiration but she’s also a champion for all of us.
