Britain’s Got Talent Susan Boyle is YouTube hit

A video of Susan Boyle’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent looks set to become the most viewed YouTube clip ever.

Less than two weeks after it was uploaded to the site Susan’s audition has been watched more than 100million times – closing in to smash the previous record.

And it has been watched five times more than US President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony in January, which has had 18.5million views.

The current most watched clip on YouTube is comedian Judson Laipply’s Evolution Of Dance, which has been viewed 118 million times since it was uploaded in April 2006.

The 47-year-old Scot left viewers open-mouthed with her sensational rendition of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from the musical Les Miserables.

She is the red-hot favourite to walk away with the television programme’s £100,000 prize and to perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.

She said: “I’m doing all this as a tribute to my Mum. If she could see me now, she’d be very proud.”

I’m just waiting for the impending makeover.
