Susan Boyle garnered worldwide attention when she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2008, performing the song “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables..
The 57-year-old stunned the audience and the world when she put forth her impeccable vocals. While she was the clear favorite to win the show, she ended up coming in second place behind the dance troupe Diversity.
Fast forward to today and Susan is back, competing on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” This time she’s going for the win. Early in the season Susan performed “Wild Horses,” featured on her 2009 debut album I Dreamed a Dream. Following that performance, Susan received the golden buzzer from judge Mel B, advancing her to the finals.
The Scottish singer took the stage in the Finals and brought us all back to where it first began. Susan saved the best for last, performing her debut hit, “I Dreamed a Dream” as her song of choice.
“This is the song,” Howie Mandel said as Susan began her performance.
Following a flawless performance the judges and the crowd rose to their feet in applause and cheers. Simon so enjoyed the performance he threw his hands in the air in excitement.
“You’re so classy and elegant and effortless. If I had another golden buzzer I’d press it again and again and again for you. You’re just brilliant. Absolutely brilliant Susan,” Mel B said.
“Susan Boyle is in the building everybody. You singing that song is everything. It gives me goose pimples and I just loved it. I love you. It was amazing. It was absolutely amazing. Thank you, Heidi added.
But Simon brought it all back to where it began.
“Oh My God Susan, that really, really took me back all those years. I can remember vividly how disgusting I was on the day before you sang and then what you did and what happened afterwards. It’s been an amazing night. I mean seriously, it was fantastic. You’re a champion,” Simon said.
And Susan summed up her experience on “AGT” the best. “I’ve enjoyed every second and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being in America. Thank you so much.”
