Susan Boyle’s audition is most watched YouTube video of 2009

Susan Boyle’s audition video for the reality TV show, Britain’s Got Talent, was the most watched YouTube video of 2009 with over 120 million viewings, more than three times higher than the second most popular video uploaded to YouTube.

Her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” on the show catapulted her from an unemployed church choir singer to an international media sensation. She almost did not audition for Britain’s Got Talent, but a former coach persuaded her to go out for the show despite Susan’s belief that “…she was too old and that it was a young person’s game.”

Susan Boyle released her first album in November 2009. It debuted as the number one best-selling CD on the charts around the globe.


  1. I still remember watching it the first time on TV here in England. It was a great magical moment. Her new CD is out now as well. It’s good!

    Yeah, although Susan didn’t realize it at the time she was in alignment with her dreams. The confirmation was the YouTube success and selling over 700,000 copies of her debut album the first week.

    Congratulations to Susan!!!

    Heres to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Theyre not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.,

    Susan Boyle has a great voice, if she only look good then she could have been a fast rising star. the music industry is also like showbiz, somehow you need to look good if you want to become famous fast.
