Watch the new Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle’s Memory video here. The singer delivered a sensational performance of the song from the Musical Cats on the Semi-Final on May 24, 2009. See photos and the new video here from the semi-finals.
There may have been competition in the Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Finals, but nonetheless, the 47 year old Scottish singer, YouTube sensation and international star landed a place in the finals. We will soon be witnessing the next Susan Boyle video, destined to go viral.
She choose a technically challenging song, Memory from the musical Cats, and got off to a slightly awkward start. Her momentum grew with every note as the singer delivered an emotionally powerful rendition of the classic.
Susan Boyle from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland has attained international stardom in a matter of weeks with tens of millions worldwide witnessing her brilliant,touching rendition of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from Les Miserables on Britain’s Got Talent, which won over the panel of cynical and disbelieving judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden and a contemptuous audience who had no idea of what to expect from the singer who declared she wanted to emulate the successful career of West End legend Elaine Paige.
Now the Susan Boyle Memory video of her latest brilliant performance shows that she gained a standing ovation from all of the judges and accolades from each of them.
Piers Morgan told her she looked beautiful and went on to say, “The world is going through a pretty tough time and looking for a bit of hope and inspiration. Along came Susan Boyle to provide it, and, on behalf of the whole world – because they’re all watching you tonight – thank you, Susan, because you’ve been terrific.”
Amanda Holden said she had been biting all of her ‘acrylic nails’ and that she was so happy for the singer, that she ‘nailed’ the performance.
Simon Cowell, told her, “You are one special lady, I have to say, you really are.’ He went on say, ‘I just want to apologize because of the way we treated you before you sang the first time. You made me and everyone else look very stupid.’ He added: I’m very happy, I’m very proud of you.
With only a very slight Susan Boyle makeover (after incessant talk on the subject), the singer had beautifully coiffed dark hair (recently dyed) and wore an elegant but simple dark purple dress.
Here are several Susan Boyle pictures from the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals performance, revealing her new look.
One can only imagine how it could have been to sing with literally the world watching, and after weeks of intense speculation, and millions who had already seen the initial Susan Boyle video that has become a worldwide YouTube viral video sensation, a media star, and an inspirational story around the world. You can see the video that launched her international recognition on YouTube here.
But the Susan Boyle Memory video reveals the singer prevailing in the BGT semi-final on May 24, 2009.
In an interview Susan Boyle said:
“All my life I’ve always striven to prove that I can be accepted; that I’m not the worthless person that people think I am, that I do have something to offer.
“Being on Britain’s Got Talent is a chance to turn things around; to fulfil the dream. I just want that chance to perform in front of the Queen.”
Susan Boyle, along with dance troupe Diversity was selected for the finals. We will soon witness the singer perform again on May 30, 2009 on the Britain’s Got Talent Finals.
The competition is not over, as the international star continues to reiterate her strong desire perform for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance, which is the privilege granted the Britain’s Got Talent winner along with the cash prize of £100,000.
Here are the Memory lyrics.
