The Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle is taking America by storm – from her trip to Disneyland to her much anticipated upcoming performance on America’s Got Talent.

It’s been five months since the “hairy angel” from Blackburn, Scotland became a YouTube heroine and Internet singing sensation. The road has been a bumpy one – from the “controversial” makeovers to her surprising loss on Britain’s Got Talent to a 10-person dance crew, but it’s also been a thrilling one (that kiss from Piers Morgan, the accolades … that voice!) and Susan Boyle shows no sign of stopping.
The singer is set to make her U.S singing debut on America’s Got Talent on Wednesday – she flew into Los Angeles Monday night where she was swarmed by a Hollywood-worthy crowd of 50 paparazzi and 1,000 fans, according to The Times Online. By all accounts Susan, wearing dark designer glasses and blowing kisses, thoroughly enjoyed the moment.
“Susan was smiling from ear to ear,” one eyewitness told RadarOnline.com. “She was loving the attention.”
Susan herself said, “I was delighted to be given such a warm welcome.”
