Susan Boyle Performs Iconic Les Miserables Song, Giving Audience And Judges Goosebumps. Susan Boyle, a Scottish singer and international superstar, not only returns to America’s Got Talent, but also to the song that launched her career, in her latest performance.
Susan takes the stage after receiving the Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell for her performance of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” in this sneak peek from America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
At the beginning of the video, the 47-year-old singer says: “I’ve wanted to sing since I was little.” Music helped him overcome difficult moments in life. But it wasn’t until her mother passed away that Susan decided to follow her dream, something her mother always encouraged.
“Everybody has dreams, you have to follow those dreams.” I feel like I’ve been given a chance,” she says. And she certainly has, having sold over 20 million records. And it all started with this song – ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from Les Miserables. She has a sequence of beautiful dress and a mystic background – the instrumentalists covered fog and silver light with trees in the background.
The judges and the audience are on their feet when she finishes her performance.
Mel B tells her that if she had another Golden Buzzer, she would press it again for Suzanne. And Simon says he has “chills on his skin” and goes on to explain how her performance has brought him back, admitting he wasn’t so kind to her on day one, but she’s become the epitome of a champion.
Watch below the video of the song that made her famous.
