Susan Boyle in Louisville October 24
On the night of April 11, 2009, Simon Cowell's eyebrows raised up so high that they nearly wrapped around the back of his head. Cowell was sitting on the judge's panel for Britain's Got Talent when a dowdy 47-year old Susan Boyle introduced herself and stated she would like to be a professional singer. When he asked why it hadn't worked out so far, she replied that she had never been given the chance. She was given the signal to begin her performance and begin she did.

The audience was standing by the twenty second mark, and Susan Boyle was already adored. The lyrics of I Dreamed a Dream were perfectly suited to the occasion. The Scottish singer became an overnight sensation, and her success has continued with an incredible music career beyond her dreams.
