Subscribe to Susan Boyle alerts

Susan Boyle was surprised with an early Christmas gift on U.K. TV as she received a platinum record for her history-making album sales.
The Scottish spinster skyrocketed to fame after appearing on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year (09) and fans around the world have since proved their love for the 48 year old by snapping up thousands of copies of her debut album, I Dreamed a Dream.
The record-breaking disc has sold more than five million worldwide since its release in November (09), topping the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the U.S. and the U.K.
Her life-changing year was capped off in style as she was handed a triple platinum record during her own TV special, I Dreamed A Dream: The Susan Boyle Story, prompting her to break down in tears as she clutched the prestigious prize.
Journalist Piers Morgan, a judge on Britain's Got Talent, told Boyle, "To celebrate you, we'd like to give you a little treat, a little surprise. In recognition of your astonishing achievement in selling over one million records, here is the triple platinum record.
"Very few artists in history have done this. Susan Boyle, you dreamed a dream - this is your dream come true!"
The special aired in Britain on Sunday (13Dec09).
