Susan Boyle fever has now hit the US.

The Scottish singer performed live at the Rockefeller Plaza in New York and had American fans going wild with a note-perfect live performance yesterday.

She seemed to have had a New York make-over and |appeared slimmer and stylishly dressed.

The Britain’s Got Talent star was mobbed by fans holding signs and waving Scottish flags in frenzied scenes as she arrived in the States on Sunday.

Her security team was forced to hold back the crowd to allow her to get her to a waiting |limousine.

The 48-year-old is in the US to promote her album, the Gift, which has already taken top spot on both the UK and US charts, just as she did with her debut record, I Dreamed a Dream.

According to her record label, the singer is only the third act to achieve that feat twice within a year.

Columbia Records said only the Monkees in 1967 and the Beatles in 1969 have simultaneously topped both charts twice in the same 12 months, Columbia Records said.

You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
