It's happening!

A musical about Susan Boyle's entire life story is in it's final stages of planning according to The Sun.

And here's a shocker: SuBo has been cast to play herself!

The Britain's Got Talent phenom, said:

"I'm definitely going to be on stage. I'd rather that than having to sit watching people up there looking like me. I want to be doing the music parts, so I'll be coming in and out of the show. I'm looking forward to doing some live work. It'll be really nice to see so many of the people who have supported me in person."

We can't blame her. Those are some tough shoes to fill.

Highlights of the musical will include performing for the Pope, the success of I Dreamed A Dream and The Gift and of course that audition that made her famous.

Sounds like it's going to be quite the show!

But who will play her cat?

Ha!

After two weeks at number one, Taylor Swift's Speak Now was dethroned by Susan Boyle's holiday album The Gift.

And SuBo was so gracious about her victory!

She said:

"Singing is the best job in the world, it really is fantastic. I'm just an ordinary woman who showed a bit of determination and this is what has happened. To have a second No.1 album is wonderful and something I never expected."

The Gift is the highest-selling holiday album in recent years, even outselling Josh Groban's Noel.

Impressive.

Susan Boyle’s New Album Already A #1 Best Seller!

She’s amazing!

It was only three days ago when Susan Boyle announced the release of her second album, The Gift, but it’s already climbed to the #1 position on Amazon’s Bestsellers chart!

"It's pretty significantly No. 1," said Craig Pape, Amazon’s director of music. "The Gift has leapfrogged fourth-quarter efforts by Taylor Swift, Eric Clapton, and Neil Young on the Bestsellers tally, with only pre-orders of Bob Dylan's "The Witmark Demos" coming close to Boyle's sales.”

It’s unclear whether or not The Gift will surpass her first album’s pre-order sales (3.8 million), but it could be close.

"I personally expect to see it in that top slot for quite a while," said Pape. "Through street date and beyond, through Christmas, sales should stay very strong."

Congrats, bb!

She's back, bitches!

Our beloved Susan Boyle's much-anticipated second album, The Gift, will be released on November 9th!

The tracklist includes a mix of holiday songs, as well as pop covers, including the now notorious Lou Reed track Perfect Day!

SuBo says:

"When making this album, I really wanted the songs to touch hearts. Music has always been a companion to me, particularly on special occasions. I wanted there to be a mix of songs that would flow with all our moods this holiday season. As much as the season is a time for reflection, it is also a time for fun and enjoyment with those closest to us."

Lovely!

We can't wait to give it a listen, bb!

It Wasn't Lou Reed's Fault!

Filed under: Music MinuteSusan Boyle

It was previously reported that Lou Reed was the reason Susan Boyle was unable to perform on America's Got Talent last night, but that's not true according to his reps.

Apparently it was a contractual issue and that his song "Perfect Day" was not cleared in time for her to perform in America as it was in the UK.

She also didn't have another song prepared for the show making her unable to perform.

Reps for Susan released a statement:

"Susan was due to perform a chosen song from her new album The Gift on America's Got Talent in Los Angeles. It is with real disappointment and regret that she has been unable to do so due to unforeseen circumstances relating to the song.

"Susan is very disappointed as she had been looking forward to it immensely. She is now on a plane heading back to London with a heavy heart. Susan really looks forward to being able to perform her new songs very soon."

Chin up, girl!
