The real reason we don’t hear about Susan Boyle anymore
Susan Boyle, 47, stood on the stage of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 and announced to host Simon Cowell, “I’m trying to be a professional singer.” Defying every expectation, she proceeded to stun viewers with a voice no one saw coming, slaying “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables. Host Piers Morgan, just as gobsmacked as everyone else, bluntly declared, “When you stood there with that cheeky grin and said, ‘I want to be like Elaine Paige,’ everyone was laughing at you. No one is laughing now,” The Guardian reported at the time.
This one performance completely changed her life. She got a dazzling $7.1 million payout within the year, according to International Business Times, and in the following months, she would sing for the Pope, the Queen, and President Obama. So where is she now? Well, you don’t go viral and disappear for no reason. Here’s why we don’t hear much about Susan Boyle anymore. – More
