After two weeks blocked from the top slot of Billboard Hot 200, Susan Boyle is predicted to rule the chart once again next week. Her recent performance at "The Oprah Winfrey Show" reportedly becomes the main factor that boosts the selling number of "I Dreamed a Dream".

The only heavy contender for taking the No. 1 position is Lady GaGa's "The Fame", so HITS Daily Double reports. Should the "Britain's Got Talent" runner-up return to the hot spot, the dance queen has to be satisfied only by sitting at No. 2, rising two slots from this week's position.

Susan Boyle was recently snubbed by BRIT Awards at this year's nominations list despite the fact that she sold million copies with her debut album. "I think it's a crime," said Ged Doherty, who is the head of Susan's recording company Sony.

As for Lady GaGa, the singer who has scooped multiple awards over the course of 2008 and 2009 leads the pack with three nods along with Lily Allen, JLS, Pixie Lott and Florence and the Machine. She is nominated for International Female Solo Artist, International Album and International Breakthrough Act.

beautiful music, a voice so pure in tone and quality, so moving, a lovely lady in her simple life. In Canada we have our Rita McNeil, with a pure, pure voice. She's done well and she's well loved. Physically she is not attractive, but character, charm, personality, she's won our Canadian Hearts. I believe Susan has all those qualities, it would be aterrible thing to lose her to up front media. Beauty is where you find it and where you see it. I saw Susan at her debut. I saw a shy, demure lady come out on stage. I heard the suttle comments from the audience that she wasn't glamorous like they expected. In my mind's eye I said wait, there must be some reason she is here. So I waited and she burst into song with the most beautiful sound, so original so unique. And I new I was not the only one. The Judges, the audience, for a long, long moment, were totally captivated. Susan you have a beautiful voice, all that I've seen of you your a very lovely scottish lady. I'm a Canadian, I had a very lovely Scottish Grandmother, from Aberdeen. This late in life, from what I know you've led a sedate life. Has it been a good life? This beautiful voice of yours is going to be exploited by the worst ;nefarious, opportunistic scum. Everything they tell you is lies. They are going to try to downplay your appearance. They'll assure you they will work with that. Make your appearance more presentable

I'd say that having the #1 album of 2009, globally, and achieving it in 6 weeks is reward enough for Susan Boyle. She knows she's smashed records, knows she's #1, and by this point must know that the Brit Awards are obviously meaningless.

It seems Susan needs someone to really mamange her career..does she not have a traveling companion...and her own security. She needs time and guidance to make her way in what must be overwheliming to her. I love Susan and pray her talent doesn't get misused or trashed.

Susan will have so many awards this year that she'll have to add on to her house to hold them. As to the Brits award nominating committee - SHAME on you! Susan is the best of the best.

Brits Awards is a joke. We international fans don't care about it at all. We just want to hear Ms. Boyle's music, which is so good.

Susan doesn't need the Brit Awards. She's a top international entertainer whose fans put their money where their mouth is. She's broken just about every record there is - why bother with some minor celebrity filled circus? That's for wannabees. She's above all that.
