  • Hello. How are you doing?

  • I'm good. How are you?

  • My name is Susan Boyle.

  • I'm nearly 48.

  • Currently unemployed, but still looking.

  • And I'm going to sing for you on

  • "Britain's Got Talent" today.

  • A little nervous?

  • Yeah, sure. Yeah.

  • Well, that's not surprising don't you know!

  • I got faith, wouldn't you know!

  • At the moment I live on my own

  • with my cat, called Pebbles

  • But I've never been married.

  • Never been kissed.

  • Oooh!

  • Shame!

  • But it's not an advert!

  • And have you done this for many a year?

  • Since I was twelve.

  • Since you were 12?

  • I've always wanted to perform in front of a large audience

  • I'm gonna make that audience rock!

  • Hi, what's your name, darling?

  • My name is Susan Boyle.

  • Ok, Susan. Where are you from?

  • I am from Blackburn near Bathgate, West Lothian

  • That's a big town?

  • It's a sort of... a collection of

  • ...a collection of...

  • ...villages.

  • I had to think there

  • And how old are you, Susan?

  • I'm 47.

  • and that's just one side of me.

  • Heh, heh! I love her!

  • Ok, what's the dream?

  • I'm trying to be a professional singer.

  • And why hasn't it worked out so far, Susan?

  • I've never been given the chance before,

  • but here's hoping it will change

  • Ok, and who would you like to be as successful as?

  • Elaine Paige. Elaine Paige?

  • What are you gonna sing tonight?

  • I'm gonna sing "I dreamed a dream" from "Les Miserables"

  • Ok.

  • Big song!

  • Yeah?

  • Yeah!

  • I dreamed a dream in time gone by

  • When hope was high

  • And life worth living

  • You didn't expect that, did you?

  • Did you? No!

  • I dreamed that love would never die

  • I dreamed that God would be forgiving

  • Then I was young and unafraid

  • When dreams were made and used and wasted

  • There was no ransom to be paid

  • No song unsung

  • No wine untasted

  • But the tigers come at night

  • With their voices soft as thunder

  • As they tear your hopes apart

  • As they turn your dreams to shame

  • Wow!

  • Look at that!

  • And still I dream he'll come to me

  • And we will live our lives together

  • But there are dreams that cannot be

  • And there are storms we cannot weather

  • I had a dream my life would be

  • So different from this hell I'm living

  • So different now from what it seems

  • Now life has killed the dream

  • I dreamed

  • Hello!

  • Hey, come back here!

  • Yes, yes. Get back, get back!

  • Alright. Thank you very much Susan. Pierce?

  • Without a doubt, that was the biggest surprise

  • I have had in 3 years on the show

  • When you stood there with that cheeky grin

  • and said I want to be like Elaine Paige.

  • Everyone was laughing at you.

  • No one is laughing now

  • That was stunning!

  • an incredible performance!

  • Amazing, I'm reeling from shock.

  • How about you two?

  • I'm so thrilled because...

  • I know that everybody was against you.

  • I honestly think that we all were all being very cynical,

  • and I think that was the biggest wake-up call ever!

  • and I just want to say that it was

  • a complete privilege listening to that.

  • It was extra brilliant!

  • Susan, I knew the minute you walked out

  • OH, SIMON!

  • on that stage that we were gonna hear something extraordinary

  • and I was right.

  • What a load of touch!

  • Susan, you are a little tiger, aren't you?

  • I don't know about that.

  • You are. Ok, moment of truth,

  • Pierce, yes or no?

  • The biggest YES I have ever given anybody

  • Amanda?

  • Yes, definitely! It's brilliant!

  • Amanda?! You too?!

  • Susan Boyle, you can go back to the village

  • with your head held high.

  • It's three "yeses"

  • Well, I think you enjoyed that just a little?

  • Wouldn't you have?

  • What a voice!

  • Incredible!

  • Congratulations!

  • Oh my God!

  • Congratulations!

  • Oh my God!

  • How do you feel?

  • Bloody fantastic!

  • Pierce has the biggest yes

  • he's ever given on the show!

  • in three series! - Yeah!

  • Oh my God!

  • Mind blowing!
