The most popular name circulating on the net, Susan Boyle, did an interview with CBS' "The Early Show". Brought along through a phone interview was Patti LuPone who is the original Broadway singer for "I Dream a Dream", the song that Boyle sang during the audition of "Britain's Got Talent".

LuPone recalled how she was taken aback when watching Boyle's performance and talked a bit about the song itself. LuPone said that it is not an easy song to sing, especially that last part. Boyle was also asked about her hard childhood and her struggle with her ill mother.

Additionally, CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" managed to have Boyle singing behind her piano at home, again reprising "I Dream a Dream".

Boyle becomes a star before the show even crowns her a winner. Her rendition of "I Dream a Dream" amazed the judges and the audience of "Britain's Got Talent" that the YouTube video received million of hits, the latest being over 12 million.

Boyle is 47-year-old who made a promise to her mother on her death bed that she would give her voice a try. Prior to the audition, she was unemployed and volunteered for the church in her native Scotland. She admits to never been kissed and lives with her cat Pebbles.

Following her instant popularity, Twitter has been set on fire with comments including the ones from celebrities. Ashton Kutcher wrote, "That just made my night" while his wife Demi Moore wrote "You saw it made me teary!". A fan has even set up a fan site that has received more than 7000 members.
