The comment I left for this YouTube video

I would like to see a legitimate Susan Boyle fund started. I never contributed to an Internet fund; this would be a first for me. We all pay for entertainment in one form or another.

This was the highest level of entertainment I've ever witnessed.

Thank you Susan Boyle for the greatest theatrical event of my life, you touched me in a way I’ve never been touched before.


Another British invasion has begun. And her name is Susan Boyle!

Thanks to YouTube, Boyle has become a worldwide sensation after her jaw-dropping performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the Broadway musical Les Misérables on Britain's Got Talent. As of this afternoon, her seven-minute clip has received close to 12 million views.

"Susan...has so much courage, and such pluck, really," the Tony winner said, adding, "My husband and I watched [Boyle's performance], and I started to cry. It made me cry."

Boyle may have the stamp of singing approval from a sharp-tongued critic like Cowell, but she's really only doing this for one person. "I wanted to do this as a tribute to my mother," she said of her late mum.

Boyle follows in the footsteps of past winner Paul Potts, who judges initially also doubted because of his less-than-sophisticated appearance. Like Boyle, Potts won them over with his voice. Post-Talent, Potts' debut album One Chance went on to claim the No.1 spot on the U.K. Albums Chart less than a week after its
