The global buzz around Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle is still going crazy with clips of her audition being streamed more than 16 million times on YouTube.

Frumpy Susan, from West Lothian, stunned both the judges and the audience on the ITV1 show on Saturday night with her powerful rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables.

And by Thursday morning, one clip of her audition had been viewed more than 11 million times. Eight more clips had notched up views of between 100,000 to well over a million.

“Without a doubt that was the biggest surprise I have had in three years of this show,” said judge Piers Morgan, admitting that before her performance ‘everyone was laughing at you’.

He added: “No one is laughing now. That was stunning.” And clearly internet users worldwide agree.

Susan, from West Lothian, who admits she has never been on a date or been kissed, is now favourite to win the show.
