GONE VIRAL:

Britain's Got Talent: profile of 'singing sensation' Susan Boyle (Daily Telegraph, 4/17/09)

Ms Boyle, 47, is unemployed and as a devout Catholic, spends much of her time as a church volunteer.

She shares her pebbled-dashed semi with her cat and admits she has never been kissed.

After spending years caring for her widowed mother Bridget, she said she found the courage to appear on the show as a tribute to her mother who died two years ago.

On last weekend's show the audience sniggered and judges raised eyebrows as she told them she dreamt of becoming a singer as successful as Elaine Paige.

But when she started to sing the crowd rose to their feet and the judges were stunned.

She is now the bookies' favourite to win top prize on the show to beat 75,000 other hopefuls.

Millions of people have since viewed the clip of her performance on YouTube, making her an overnight internet phenomenon.
