Scottish superstar Susan Boyle returned to the "Got Talent" series on Jan. 7 for America's "Champions" spin-off. She delivered another breathtaking performance in front of Simon Cowell just like the first time.
Boyle rose to prominence as a contestant on series three of "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009. Video of her powerful audition singing the "Les Miserables" classic "I Dreamed a Dream" went viral around the world. Though she finished as a runner-up, Susan's debut album later that year, I Dreamed a Dream, went No. 1 on almost every music chart across the globe. Released in late November, Dream became the biggest selling album for 2009 in only a six-week window. Follow-up records 2010's The Gift and 2011's Someone to Watch Over Me yielded similar successes.
Ten years since her big breakthrough, Boyle re-emerged for "America's Got Talent: The Champions," a special spin-off pitting the best contestants from all the "Got Talent" shows against each other. "I'm excited to show Simon how much I've grown since the last time," Boyle said in a pre-taped segment. A stunning Susan took the stage to sing the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" in front of judges Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown. Her voice soared and drew a standing ovation from the crowd along with Simon and co.
"I can't think of any other contestant who defined this show better than you," Cowell said. "You are what the show is," Mandel added. "I wanna be the woman that gives you something that you deserve," Brown said as she pushed the coveted golden buzzer, putting Boyle straight into the finale. "I'm very happy and very humble," Boyle spoke in front of the roaring house. "Thank you all very much." She came through with another beloved moment for the "Got Talent" cameras.
To see how Boyle fares in the competition, "America's Got Talent: The Champions" will air every Monday on NBC. Watch her original "Britain's Got Talent" audition below.
