“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” is a reality television competition that has gathered some of the most legendary acts from talent shows all over the world to compete for one top prize. Of course, they could never have done this competition without legendary “Britain’s Got Talent” singer Susan Boyle, and she did not disappoint when she took the stage to perform on Monday night.
It’s been nearly ten years since Boyle burst onto the scene with her performance of “I Dreamed A Dream” on “Britain’s Got Talent.” On Monday, Boyle showed her fellow competitors that she is still very much the one to beat with a performance that completely blew the judges away.
“And what’s your name?” judge Simon Cowell said with a smile as she stepped onstage. “Oh my God this brings back so many great memories having you back. Genuinely, I’m beyond thrilled that you’re here tonight.”
Boyle then performed The Rolling Stones classic song “Wild Horses,” and she could not have done it any better!
“I can’t think of any other contestant who has defined this show better than you. You’re the one,” Cowell told her. “You made a huge difference to a lot of people’s lives and I’m absolutely thrilled that you’re here.”
Judge Mel B. agreed, saying, “I want to be the woman that gives you something that you deserve.” Mel B. then jumped up to hit the golden buzzer, sending Boyle through straight to the finals!
When asked if she felt like a champion, Boyle responded, “I think a champion for those who maybe don’t have the confidence to do things. For those who maybe don’t have a voice. The ones who people tend to ignore. I feel I’m a champion for them. So I couldn’t possibly walk away from my second chance.”
We wish Boyle the best of luck in the finals! Check out her performance below!
