Susan Boyle's First DVD To Top the Charts!

Scottish singing sensation,Susan Boyle, has launched her first album entitled "I Dreamed a Dream" just in time for Christmas, The album is guaranteed to be a great success and is already one of the best-selling Christmas gifts on Amazon.

Susan Boyle, was totally unknown until she sang on the show Britan's Got Talent just a few months ago but is now the world over and has been seen by over 100 million people on the Internet. Although by some strange quirk she came csecond in the show.

Gennaro Castaldo from HMV said Susan Boyle was set to sell 150,000 copies just in Britain on the first day.

"HMV is now revising significantly its estimate for the total weekly sales upward from the 300,000 that we initially projected to a figure closer to 400,000," Castaldo said.

"This would easily make the album the biggest and fastest-selling release of 2009.

"You would have to go back a year to the release of Take That's 'The Circus' in December last year, which sold 432,490 copies in its week of release, to find anything comparable during the past 12 months."

Susan Boyle is set to wow New York at Manhattan's Rockefeller Centre where she will be performing three songs from her debut album.

Susan told People magazine: "The album itself is like a reflection on my whole life. I've waited so long to become a professional singer and now it's become real."

Susan Boyle Doing Well

Susan Boyle Cashes in On Fame

Wasn't Susan Boyle in the Priory Clinic ? Well apparently she only spent 5 days there. She is now singing at corporate events and charging £100,000 ($160,000) to sing three four minute songs, which is pretty good going. So if she did ten such corporate events and sang 30 songs that would make her £1 million ($1.6 million) - not bad going.

Her agent Andrew Pountain, of Industry Music Group, revealed these fees in ane mail to the News of the World.

A 'source' said "She's the biggest star to have come out of Britain's Got Talent, so her price to sing reflects that."

"These fees mean it will take ten dates for her to make a million pounds, which is unprecedented for a reality show winner."

"Now we can start making her some serious money. We have to do it soon to capitalise on the huge interest in her, especially in America."

Of course she will have to pay inncome tax at 50% in the UK, so maybe soon she will be moving to sunnier climes?

Susan Boyle Celebrity Problems

Susan Boyle Might Pull Out from Britain's Got Talent

The strain and stress of fame is apparently taking its toll on Susan Boyle, who reportedly is close to quitting Britain’s Got Talent.

She has been criticized recently for both her behaviour and her singing, Piers Morgan said “I’ve been told she’s Susan Boyle Piers Morganbeen in floods of tears."

“Yesterday she was actually going to leave the show, packed her bags to go because she couldn’t see the point in going on if all she was going to get was all this sniping.”

“I think there’s a lot of cynicism building up about Susan, a lot of unnecessary criticism about her. She’s just two days away from the biggest show of her life, the biggest moment of her life, and we should give her a break.”

TV executives are also said to be considering pulling Susan from the live final tomorrow night.

There is talk that she may have gone into hiding after a number of unpleasant incidents.

Television officials will take medical advice to check that she can cope with the stress of the live final.

Britan's Got Talent is a blockbuster in the UK, in particular this series due to Susan Boyle.

One ITV official said: “If it is felt that she is too vulnerable to perform, she will be withdrawn from the show.”

Susan Boyle's behaviour has been a little strained at times, including four-letter word outbursts and making V-signs at Piers Morgan. (The UK equivalent of the finger).

“Simon Cowell and Co aren’t happy but there is a much bigger picture here. If anything was to happen to Susan live on air it would be ITV that got the blame. Her well-being is the absolute priority.”

TV companies have has “a duty of care” to people who appear on their channels and if Susan Boyle or a viewer were to lodge a complaint after the final, ITV could risk prosecution.

Susan Boyle's brother John said: "Susan is finding it very difficult at the moment. She has become a global sensation and is finding that she doesn't have any of the protection and support that big stars normally do. She is just a normal woman from a small village in Scotland, who all of a sudden is being forced to cope with this on her own."

One expert on reality shows said Susan Boyle was "clearly not prepared" for fame and could find the pressure too much.

Dr Linda Papadopoulos said: "Somebody who is unprepared for this type of celebrity will find it hugely difficult to deal with. Part of being a celebrity is trying to control your emotions rather than your emotions controlling you and I don't know how capable she will be of doing that."

Miss Boyle has been criticized lately, Craig Revel Horwood from Strictly Come Dancing rather unkindly said she "sucks" and he din't like her singing.

Max Clifford said "She's not dealing at all well with this situation. The dream that everyone first bought into, that she was a sweet lady devoted to her mother, is quickly fading."

Susan Boyle is still favourite according to the bookies but her odds have lengthened.

So let us hope that she does not in fact crack up but that she goes on to surprise everyone and sing like she did in the first round. I'm sure that most of the audience will be rooting for her !

Oprah asked Ms Boyle about her new worlwide fame and her fans to which the singer answered : “I’ve been getting quite a few fan letters. It all takes a bit of time to take in, it’s awesome.”

Oprah asked her if she would be having a makeover, to which Susan replied : “My best friend helps me with my make-up, that’s hardly a makeover."

Asked if she had dyed her hair she said “I did a bit but that was just to tidy myself up like any other female would have done.”

Speaking about how much she loved singing, she said: “I was kind a kind of slow learner in school, so getting into something like singing was a good was of hiding behind that and so, boosting my confidence.”

On her mother’s death she said : “I am very slowly getting over it.One of the reasons I applied for the show was to see if I could perform in front of a live audience.”

Simon Cowell was also on the show entitled "The Worlds Got talent" and he wished Susan good luck.

Susan Boyle Says Nobama

Susan Boyle Says No I Can't to Barack Obama

Susan Boyle said "No I Can't" to a dinner date with US President Barack Obama on Saturday.

Ms Boyle said she was too nervous to attend the star-studded ego fest in Washington.

According to the News of the World : "She was shocked and thrilled by the invite - but it was all too much too soon for her so she said No."

"She has been told President Obama has seen clips of her on TV and loved her singing. And she is delighted."

"But instead she'll have no doubt stayed in with her cat Pebbles, washed her hair and watched Britain's Got Talent on telly."

American TV networks were apparently fighting to invite her to the annual Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC on Saturday night. President Obama was the guest of honour and invitations are very hard to come by.

Susan Boyle is concentrating on the Britain's Got Talent competition, as despite what peopl emay thin, she hasn't won it yet - she would have met many of the rich and famous Hollywood A-listers at the 5-star Hilton Hotel . . . and of course President Obama who is a big fan.

"She knows she would have been incredibly nervous if she'd gone," said the News of the World source. "But her dream is to sing for President Obama one day."

"She loves him and thinks he is already a terrific president."

Susan Boyle on Oprah

Susan Boyle - Song List and Oprah Winfrey Appearance

Susan Boyle Oprah WinfreyAs rumoured weeks ago, Susan Boyle is to appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Susan Boyle hasn't won the talent show Britain's Got Talent but she is odds on favourite to do so later this month, but she is already an international star.

Susan Boyle will be on Monday's episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show and will give viewers a tour of a Scottish council house - currently the singer's modest home, complete with new fence.

The Oprah team visited Susan Boyle's home in Blackburn, Scotland, on Tuesday for several hours. They were treated to a guided tour and a chat to the neighbours.

Susan Boyle is also expected to be interviewd by Oprah.

In the meantime it appears that Susan Boyle's songlist for the semi-finals has been leaked. The Daily Record in Scotland has reported that she was photographed carrying a list of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs - including Tell Me On A Sunday, Take That Look Off Your Face, the title song from and Here Again Phantom Of The Opera.

Whichever song she chooses is sure to see a boos to its sales in the UK.

The song Here Again - “Wishing you were somehow here again . . .” - is sung by the character Christine in the Phantom of the Opera for her dead father, and as Susan Boyle has lost both of her parents these would be very poignant.

Susan Boyle Rare Video Footage

Susan Boyle - Rare Video Footage

A rare video has emerged of Susan Boyle taking part in a talent show back in 1984. She didn't win, but the video now has a hisotirc interest.

The tape belongs to Gerry McGuinness, who was in the audience at Motherwell Football Club's social club in Scotland, when Susan Boyle performed her song.

Mr McGuinness says : "She was so shy, but she was also very attractive back then--she turned a few heads when she came in. She didn't win the contest, though. I didn't recognize Susan as the girl on my video when I first saw her on Britain's Got Talent until a relative called and asked me if I still had the tape. It's great she is finally getting some recognition."

As for Susan Boyle's current fame, some people think that Simon Cowell is handling the situation all wrong, but let's face it, he is a professional in this area. he himself has said to the Daily Record "She's got the world at her feet right now - but there's no need to panic. I read about her family saying they want to capitalise on this and right now I think that would be a huge mistake.

"The offers she is getting from people won't go away. There's going to be as much support for Susan in one year's time or two years' time."

"I had a very similar situation with Paul Potts, where people were asking should he capitalise on his fame, but I said 'no, this is just part of the process'. He went on with the rest of the competition, he was treated fairly, he won and sold five million records."

Susan Boyle Makeover

Susan Boyle - Makeover

Susan Boyle has after all dumped the frizzy hair and the bushy eyebrows. In a surprise makeover she has been seen on the cover of The Sun with dyed and styled brown curls and less eyebrows. Susan Boyle Makeover

She said on Larry King Live "why should I change?" but she clearly changed her mind.

Toni Jones, assistant fashion editor of The Sun, said "Compared to what she had, it's a 200 percent improvement. But our readers think this is as far as she should go. We want her to stay one of us, not get hair extensions and a fake tan."

Boyle got her hair done at a local salon for £35 ($50) rather than travelling over 300 miles to London to get it done for for £200 ($295). David Beckham famously had all his hair shaved off for a cost of £300 ($450) when a razor would have done the same job in his bathroom for £1.

Max Clifford, the most famous publicist in the UK, said the makeover could be a major risk as it could destroy the connection between Boyle and her global audience.

"Keep her as natural as possible for as long as possible," said Clifford. "It's more about protection than promotion. She's got the voice. She has to make sure that the person people all around the world fell in love with remains the same."

Miss Boyle has also got herself some new clothes. A stylish black leather jacket and what looks like a Burberry scarf.

The next round if BGT is live on May 23 when Susan Boyle will larn if she has got through to the final. Bookmakers in the UK have made her hot favorite to win the competition.

Susan Boyle No Official Website

Susan Boyle - Dozens of Fan Websites Created

The extraordinary reaction to Susan Boyle on the talent show Britain's Got Talent has led to the creation of dozens of websites and blogs by fans and so-called "cybersquatters" interesting on riding on the coat-tails of the latest Internet phenomenon.

Simon Cowell will be making plenty no doubt as he signs up recording contracts etc... for Susan Boyle and likewise Internet entrepreneurs have ssen a niche and bolted for it.

She has been on Larry King Live already and will be on Oprah at some stage, she has also now been mentioned in South Park and I guess the Simpsons would be the next port fo call.

The West Lothian council has seen fit to put up a new fence and since Miss Boyle's appearance on BGT over 30 websites have sprung up like mushrooms.

Boyle, who was an unemployed charity worker in Scotland, was generally ignored by all and sundry before she appeared on BGT, now everybody is very PC and wants to be her friend ! What a funny old world we live in.

Susan Boyle's Youtube clips have been seen by over 85 million people worldwide.

Miss Boyle herself does not yet have an official website, but people have registered sites in her name in the US, Europe and Turkey ! If your name really is Susan Boyle I suggest you register a site quick, it may soon be worth something. was registered on 10th April and set up as a fan site.

There is however another Susan Boyle - a Texas based artists called Susan K. Boyle - and she owns the domain name, which has seen a huge surge in visitors in recent weeks. At some point somebody will be offering Susan K. Boyle a lot of money for her domain name.

A word of advice to Susan K. Boyle - if you want to sell your domain name make sure you get a LOT of money for it and also you should renew it now, it expires in January 2010 so best to renew early for a few years.

Susan K. Boyle herself says "I can only hope there are one or two art lovers/buyers among the vistors."

Susan Boyle The Hollywood Movie

Susan Boyle - The Movie

It is April 22nd not April 1st so I guess we have to take this story seriously. It appears that Hollywood is interested in making a film of Susan Boyle's life !

And reports have it that Simon Cowell is fighting off offers from Hollywood, as he is keen to produce the film himself

Would Demi Moore be interested in portraying Susan Boyle on the silver screen ? She is after all credited in part for Miss Boyle's worldwide superstar status.

It is rumoured that Darla Rae has already sent Susan Boyle a movie role - an offer to perform a singing part in the movie Section B.

But Cowell is said to want to handle any deals through Syco - his own production company Syco.

The Daily Star has reported : "He is amazed as anyone about how Boyle-mania has gripped the world.

"Simon can see the business potential in Susan. He's not only seeing album deals in the UK and the States but also movie and merchandising.

"But he would want the move to be based around the Britain's Got Talent brand rather than Susan's life.

"It would follow her dream of getting on the show and then, of course, she would have to win."

Susan Boyle has seen a dramatic shift in her life since her appearance on the Britain's Got Talent talent show. Her performance has been watched over 35 million times on Youtube, she has appeared on larry King Live and numerous other US chat shows. She will be appearing on Oprah Winfrey's show. The council has put up a new fence ! (A minor miracle in itself to get a council to do anything).

Copies of the CD on which she sings Cry Me a River have been selling on Ebay for over $1400.
