Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle to Appear on Oprah Today, 1/19
Recent singing sensations Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle will join forces on today's syndicated episode of Oprah. As per the Daily Mail, a US source reveals that, "Oprah bosses have been really keen to get Susan on. America has gone Susan Boyle crazy and as US TV's biggest show, it makes sense for her to appear. It just goes to show what a huge star Susan Boyle has now become in America." Oprah airs at 4:00pm on ABC.
After an audition for "Britain's Got Talent," in which Susan immediately impressed the judges, the audience and then anyone with access to YouTube's expectations by singing her way through a version of "I Dreamed A Dream" from Les Miserables. A tornado of rumination and amazement grew around Susan Boyle feverishly, with over 300 Million YouTube hits and nearly two million Facebook friends to prove it.
'I Dreamed A Dream' was recorded during the summer of 2009. Susan first entered a recording studio in July in Edinburgh, picking songs that resonated with her. The final results shocked both her and veteran producer Steve Mac with its beauty and musical impact. "It was important that I could feel everything I was singing," she says. The 12 track collection features Susan Boyle performing signature songs such as "I Dreamed A Dream", "Cry Me A River," as well as her haunting rendition of The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," Madonna's "You'll See," The Monkees' "Daydream Believer," and "Who I Was Born To Be," an original recording written especially for Susan.
