Scottish singer ‘gobsmacked’ by overnight stardom

The Scottish woman who became an Internet singing sensation after her performance on a British talent show said Friday she doesn’t want fame to change her.

Susan Boyle, 47, has said she’s still the same humble girl next door despite her knockout singing on “Britain’s Got Talent.”

She shocked and inspired the audience, judges, and Web watchers with her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Misérables” in the first round of the show.

“I wouldn’t want to change myself too much because that would really make things a bit false,” she told CNN’s “American Morning” on Friday. “I want to receive people as the real me, a real person.”

Boyle’s appearance belied her talent, but in the end it was the very reason she won over the audience. There is speculation TV producers might give Boyle a makeover for the rest of the show, but she refused to say whether she’d accept one. Have you been judged on looks? read more

And finally, an interview for CNN

    More than her physical appearence (because there are a lot of women in my mother´s town looking like her), the biggest surprise is her amazing voice.
    I´m completely atonished.
    Now, I wish fame doesn´t change her too much…

    Fortunately, there are some TV programs to find people as good as Susan, who I’m sure wouldn’t succeed because of her age and appearance if she couldn’t participate on “Britain’s Got Talent, like our OT. But, why here in Spain we never could see performing people over their 30’s? I’m sure in Spain there people as well as Susan but now, in OT we have a very good opportunity to see YOUNG people on the screen singing, but only young people with good physical appearance, good-looking, … I think the aims of this “Talents Programs” are differents.
