Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) July 21, 2009 -- Taking second place to a Dagenham dance group, named Diversity, in 'Britain's Got Talentâ, the 48 year old vocalist Susan Boyle, from the Scottish village of West Lothian, has discarded the mop of unruly curls, bushy eyebrows and outmoded dress. Now fashionably dressed, carefully made-up and well groomed, she presented her new sophisticated image in her first interview since the finals, on the United States chat show, Today.
It has been a long road for Susan, from the dowdy figure who first stepped onto centre stage at the universally televised talent show. A middle aged frumpy looking lady with a broad Scottish intonation, whom nobody really anticipated would be able to sing, as was seen in the raised eyebrows and rolling eyes of the audience. The disbelief on both the faces of both the judges and audience when liquid amber poured from Susan's mouth, will go down as being one of the most memorable moments of entertainment.
Boyles video of the performance on YouTube, was hit on by hundreds of thousands people, turning it into one of the most watched videos of all time.
"Being plucked from obscurity is like going on a long journey. You never know how it's going to end. I don't want it to end", replied Susan when asked about how she is coping with success.
Distressed from exhaustion, Susan was sent to The Priory, straight after the final of 'Britain's Got Talent'. Since recovering she has been recording on her debut album, under Simon Cowell's SyCo Record Label. The album is reportedly to be released in time for Christmas.
Boyle gained stardom status overnight, with her rendition of 'I Dreamed A Dream', from the musical Le Miserables, stealing the hearts of millions. Although her next appearance on the talent show did not have the same lustre as her first appearance, there was no doubting the strength and quality of her voice.
Susan can no longer be called the 'Hairy Angel' and her golden voice will be heard for many years to come.
