Susan became an overnight reality TV and Internet star after her appearance on ITV show 'Britain"s Got Talent" on April 11. She came second in the show, behind dance troupe Diversity, but won fans worldwide including actress Demi Moore, 47, and singer Elaine Paige, 61.
Initially dubbed the Hairy Angel because of her unkempt looks, Susan has now had a full makeover. “Eight months ago, no one was aware of the talents of Susan Boyle," The Daily Express quoted Julian Monaghan, head of music buying at Amazon.co.uk, as saying.
“Now, she has generated more Amazon pre-order CD sales globally than any other artist. That is an incredible achievement and is testament to the fact that she has captured the hearts of people all over the world," she added.
