Susan Boyle receives standing ovation in US

Making her first debut stateside, Susan Boyle performed in front of 25 million viewers at the final of America’s Got Talent and was given a standing ovation.

Performing on the US version of the show that made her known worldwide, she received a rapturous applause after performing I Dreamed a Dream and her new single Wild Horses, a Rolling Stones cover.

The singer wore an elegant black dress for her appearance and was accompanied by a full orchestra.

Susan’s brother Gary has said she has become a lot more comfortable with her new found fame and is ready to take on America.
