It began on the Britain's Got Talent audition stage, when Boyle shocked the judges and the live audience by belting out "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. That moment spread across the Internet like wildfire, quickly making Boyle the most-talked-about woman in the world.
She didn't win Britain's Got Talent, but you'd never know it. She's since recorded a debut album that is topping the charts.
