The Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has just been voted into the semi-finals of the show “Britain’s Got Talent,” after the judges and audiences worldwide were amazed by her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Misérables.”
The singer has become so popular that according to reports the Czech National Symphony Orchestra wants to record an album with her, and an American company is producing Susan Boyle dolls.
Last week, the head of Sony Music Entertainment Middle East, Kevin Ridgely told Arabian Business that Boyle is close to signing a record contract with the company, and it might include a world tour. And one of the stops would be Dubai.
According to our poll however, not too many people will be rushing to see the ‘hairy angel'; while 12 percent confirmed their attendance, close to 15 percent said that it would depend on the price of the ticket.
Around 29 percent said that they would not go to her concert, adding that people should leave her alone.
But the 47-year-old church volunteer, whose performance has received millions of views on YouTube, has obviously not touched many hearts in the region; the maximum number of respondents, close to 44 percent, asked “Who is Susan Boyle?”
