Cry Me a River by Susan Boyle

Leona Lewis move over? The hottest singing sensation around these days has got to be Susan Boyle, who appeared on the reality talent show "Britain's Got Talent" and shocked the judges, including Simon Cowell with her performance. Cowell is of course also the infamous judge on American Idol who rips contestants to shreds in front of studio and national audiences week in and week out. Susan Boyle managed to make Cowell pull a "Home Alone" hands-on-face jaw-drop-in-shock type moment when she wooed him and his two fellow judges with her singing skills on "I Dreamed a Dream" (Youtube). It not only shocked Simon, and his fellow judges but an audience of doubtful haters who chose to judge on appearance before hearing the talent. Now Boyle is making the rounds on various talk shows and may appear on the Oprah show soon. She claims one of her major goals is to one day sing for the Queen of England....

It appears that the first recorded song by Susan Boyle was done 10 years ago and is her rendition of "Cry Me a River"- not the cover of the Justin Timberlake song, but a cover of a classic by Ella Fitzgerald. It's been uncovered since the mass hysteria surrounding Miss Boyle came about this past week. The "Britain's Got Talent" show still has several weeks left but the ultimate voting goes to the fans and right now Susan seems to have the fans in her corner. Boyle's performance wowed and shocked the world, proving many doubters wrong. Good luck to this new sensation, but don't expect her to be outsellin the sex appeal of JT just yet, or recording collaborations with Timberland and Nelly Furtado. Then again, that just might be the next big thing...
