When Simon Cowell stood up for Adam Lambert on "American Idol", it was not the only one he would like to give out this year. The notoriously acid-tongue and blatant judge got up from his seat for Susan Boyle on another talent show he's judging "Britain's Got Talent" after the 47-year-old woman delivered her rendition of "Memory".

Boyle, whose first audition performance received millions of hits on YouTube, went through to the semi final round on Saturday, May 23 and amazed judges and audience once again on Sunday, May 24 with her performance of the Broadway piece. All the three judges, along with the in-studio audience gave her a standing ovation and rave applause after she finished.

Host Ant & Dec asked what she's feeling in the past few weeks with all the publicity in both U.K. and U.S., and she said "unbelievable". Further asked whether it added up pressure to the night's performance, Susan answered "What pressure? It was really good tonight, I really enjoyed it ... I'm very happy to be here and thank you all for your support."

Cowell then offered a word of apology to Susan. He said, "You know what, I just want to apologize because of the way we treated you before you sang the first time. You made me and everyone else look very stupid and I'm very happy for you, very proud for you."

After the Sunday round, Susan was declared one of the two contestants that have won a ticket to the finals. The live final will be held on Saturday, May 30.

Susan, just inspiring! Your voice is suited to these big numbers; it really shows it off. I loved the crescendos on the high notes! Check the tuning on your notes in the lower register of your voice and the half steps. Good luck on the finals...sing who you are and fly free.

She didn't hit out of the ballpark as strongly as the first time, but she did well.

Wow! Susan you are magnificent. I didn't think you could top the last performance, but it just as mind blowing. I am from the US. America got it wrong with Adam Lamber, but I bet Briain's Got Talent will get it right. All the best!!!

No pressure? I can't imagine that she wouldn't have felt a lot of pressure to sing well. She did seem a bit nervous, but I think she did sing well under those difficult circumstances. I'm so proud of her and wish her the very best.
