Susan Boyle is back! America’s Got Talent: The Champions kicked off last night
On Monday night’s season premiere of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, Susan Boyle returned to the stage. “People saw me as somebody quite ordinary. I lived alone with my cat, Pebbles. [Now], I’ve sold 20-million records!” she recalled. “Wow, even I’m overwhelmed. This has helped me fulfil the dream I’ve had since I was five.” Boyle, who found fame on 2009’s Britain’s Got Talent, explained that she is competing in the all-star version of the show because she wants to be a champion for “those who don’t have the confidence to do things, for those who don’t have a voice and for those who people tend to ignore.” She went on to belt out a beautiful rendition of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses.” Mel B was so impressed that she hit the Golden Buzzer for the singer, automatically sending her into the finals.
