Britain's Got Talent : Susan Boyle Has A Makeover


Oprah, the second most famous person in the world, had Susan Boyle, the most famous person in the world on her show today (Monday May 11, 2009).

Susan Boyle opened her house and welcomed the Oprah film crew in to give the world a glance at how she lived.

Susan told Oprah that she has been singing all of her life, except for one small break when her mother died in 2007. "After that, there was a wee period where I didn't sing," she said.

She said she began singing when she was 9, to compensate for a learning disability. "I was kind of a slow learner at school, so getting something like singing was a good way of hiding behind that and so boosting my confidence," she said.

Susan is loving her new found fame, off the back of the reality show Britain’s Got Talent. "It's like a dream come true," she says.

As for recent makeover, she denies it was one.

"It depends what you mean by a makeover," she says. "I said to my best friend, I said, 'How's about you do my makeup?' I mean, that's hardly a makeover."

Susan Boyle rose to fame only 5 weeks ago when a “gobsmacking” performance of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ on Britain’s Got Talent.

Every week since, the producers of the show have tried to throw a competitor in to trump Boyle’s performance but has so far failed to achieve their sidetrack.

This week, the musical equivalent of the bearded lady, a male opera singer who looked like a rock star and sounded like a woman won the show.

They have tried a male Susan Boyle, a cute kid dancer and a boy who sounded like Michael Jackson but the fact is that once their 15 minutes of fame was over, no-one remembered their names. None of them were a Susan Boyle.

Boyle’s sudden fame surprised the show’s Simon Cowell, who didn’t allow her to sing on the Oprah show this week, claiming it was an unfair advantage over the other contestants.

Cowell spoke highly of Susan. "You've got practically the whole world behind you now," he says. "So I want to say congratulations and wish you the best of luck."


Susan, the youngest of nine, says she started singing when she was 12 years old. Music, she says, helped her cope with a learning disability. "I was kind of a slow learner at school, so getting something like singing was a good way of hiding behind that and so boosting my confidence."

Susan says her biggest supporter was her mom, who died in 2007. "After that, there was a wee period where I didn't sing," she says.

To help cope with the loss, Susan says she auditioned for Britain's Got Talent. "I am very slowly getting over it," she says. "One of the reasons I applied for the TV show was to try to see if I could perform in front of an audience."

It was the performance of Susan's life—and everything changed overnight. Paparazzi now camp outside of the home she's lived in for 48 years, and her mailbox is filling up with fan mail—with a few letters for her cat, Pebbles, mixed in

Susan says she's embracing every moment of her newfound fame. "It's like a dream come true," she says.

Despite constant public scrutiny over her appearance, Susan says she hasn't had a makeover. "It depends what you mean by a makeover," she says. "I said to my best friend, I said, 'How's about you do my makeup?' I mean, that's hardly a makeover."

Though she cut and colored her hair, Susan says it wasn't part of a dramatic transformation plan. "I did a bit, but that was just to tidy myself up like any other female would have done," she says.

No matter what, Simon says the competition is all about Susan and her voice. "You've got practically the whole world behind you now," he says. "So I want to say congratulations and wish you the best of luck."
