Yes she is!
Britain's Got Talent mega star Susan Boyle is using UK tour of I Dreamed A Dream, the musical based on her life, as a test to see if she could handle a bigger tour — a GLOBAL tour.
SuBo has yet to do much touring at all since she won the reality show in 2009. Right now, the Scottish singer is nerves about an 11-week tour, where her only responsibility is singing the one song at the end of the show.

That's right, gurl! Stand up!
Ricky Gervais really overstepped being funny and right into hurtful with his comments about Susan Boyle's looks.
Here's what he said about her:

It seems the Queen of Pop has refused to let Susan Boyle use one of her songs (You'll See) for I Dreamed A Dream, a musical based on the British operatic singer’s life.
While Les Miserables legend Cameron Mackintosh was pleased to allow SuBo’s musical to use Les Mis’ signature song as the TITLE, Madge was not having anything to do with the production.
But, not to fret, as Sue sure isn't. The Britain's Got Talent singer says about her life/musical:

Looks like Simon's got ambitious plans for his return to BGT!
Last month, ITV president Adam Crozier confirmed that Simon Cowell would be returning to Britain's Got Talent as a judge, following The Hoff's firing!
Now, Simon has opened up about his return to the show, and he's aiming HIGH this season:

Susan Boyle values her worth! And she thinks she can party hard with Kings of Leon and Lady GaGa!
The UK talent is serious in her desire to collaborate with the music heavyweights, and even though we're not sure if the world is ready for that, we'd LOVE to see her sing with the Sex on Fire band!!
Or even better — she and GaGa should Marry the Night together in the video! LOL!!
Okay, okay, enough with the silly, back to the serious (because, really, she is).
SuBo dreams big for her next album, saying:

In many ways, Birdy is a lot like Susan Boyle.
Both are British female vocalists who began their careers in talent shows and went on to do mostly cover songs. And we don't usually love artists that mainly do cover songs, but something about these two is quite compelling.
We've posted about Birdy before and we love her. We just got her new album and it is more of the same, which is more songs featuring her haunting voice against stark arrangements - like in People Help The People, a song originally by Cherry Ghost.
We do look forward to hearing original songs from her. But she's only 15! That will come with age!
Check out People Help The People (above). Then CLICK HERE to listen to more music from Birdy!
