By Carol Forsloff     Jan 19, 2010 in Entertainment
Susan Boyle was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show today. During the show, Winfrey announced Boyle's album had sold more copies than any other female performer.
Boyle, who became famous following her appearance on Britain's Got Talent with her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" appeared on Oprah Winfrey's show, performing one of the songs in her first album entitled, "I Dreamed a Dream." Singing before an enthusiastic audience, Boyle appeared confident, happy and grateful. She thanked the audience for giving her the opportunity to have achieved the musical status she has attained, specifically the sales of her first album.
This follows a recent story in the Daily Mail describing Boyle's behavior at the airport prior to her departure to the United States to appear on the Oprah show. The report gave the following description of those events that took place at the airport lounge in the Heathrow Airport, "She was seen dancing and singing with a mop in front of fellow first class passengers. She also shouted obscenities and tried to polish a passenger's shoes with the mop." The Mail goes on to describe several other incidents where Boyle's behavior was labeled as erratic. The article went on to say that Boyle's managers explained her behavior as a result of conflicts she had been having with some of them.
The Daily Mail's report is in stark contrast to the report on Susan Boyle's appearance in Japan where she was said to have "rang in the New Year in spectacular style performing ‘Who I Was Born To Be’ on Japan’s legendary Red And White Show which was watched by a record number of viewers peaking at almost 40 million during Susan’s slot." She was also said to have slept on the airplane, watched some movies and worked on learning a little Japanese
On the Oprah Winfrey Show Boyle, dressed in an elegant gown, sang, "Who I Was Born to Be." When asked during the interview whether the song fit her own life story, she indicated it did and went on to say that what happened to her shows anyone can realize a dream.
