Susan Boyle performed on Dancing With The Stars Tuesday.
She san her seminal hit, “I Dreamed A Dream” with aplomb. While she sang a couple of people be-bopped around. The audience cheered and everyone seemed to have a good time. But her voice didn’t steal the show. What really caught our attention was her awkwardness.
When Dancing With The Stars teased her performance they showed Boyle standing in front of a lovely draped set. However, the shot lingered far too long and Boyle had no clue what to do. She just stood there and waved. It was hilarious.
Boyle is the 48-year-old songstress who rocketed to fame after singing “I Dreamed A Dream,” from Les Misérables on the U.K. reality show Britain’s Got Talent.
Her performance was uploaded to YouTube and eventually viewed 300 million times.
Land of Punt expects Boyle’s DWTS show to garner big ratings. Her September appearance on America’s Got Talent drew 25 million viewers.
On Nov. 23, Boyle will release her debut album, I Dreamed a Dream.
Already it’s Amazon’s best-selling album in pre-sales
The first single from the collection is “Wild Horses.” Yes, the “Wild Horse” penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Other tracks on the album include “You’ll See,” “I Dreamed A Dream,” “Memory,” (of course) and “Cry Me A River.”
Three days later, on Nov. 26, Boyle will perform ONE song in Toronto on the Waterfall Stage at First Canadian Place. Boyle, whose nickname is “The Hairy Angel,” is scheduled to take the stage at 12:15pm.
The show, if you want to call it that, will be Boyle’s only performance in Canada for 2009.
Singing one song may seem odd, but fellow BGT sensation, and ugly duckling, Paul Potts, did the same thing two years when his debut album dropped.
