The 47-year old Scottish woman stepped onto the stage and wowed the judges, including Simon Cowell with her rendition of I Have a Dream from Les Miserables. Now, a long-forgotten track of Boyle singing Cry Me A River, made famous by Julie London, has been found. See photos and videos below.

  1. There is a lot of chatter going on analyzing why Susan is such a phenomenon. Don’t they know angels walk amongst us? True, such are rarely revealed on such a huge stage. I prefer it a lesson on how the Lord sees His children. Imperfect but for the unmistakable stamp He has placed on each one. With that special gift we are made complete. I’ve watched that video at least one million times of the 50 million, and counting. Susan is perfect, and she is an angel.
