Still Dreaming after all these years: Susan Boyle’s breakthrough reprise

Superstar Susan Boyle made a triumphant return to the Britain’s Got Talent stage last night – 10 years after her first audition propelled her to fame.

The singer glided on to the stage wearing a sparkling silver gown before launching into I Dreamed A Dream, the song which made her name.

The audience roared with delight as the lights lifted to reveal BGT’s biggest success story. Her performance came a decade after she wowed the judges when she was still an unknown singer from Bathgate, West Lothian.

Judge Simon Cowell went on stage to hug the 59-year-old, telling her: “You’ve still got the magic, Susan, haven’t you?”

Another Scots star in the making emerged on last night’s show in the shape of 12-year-old singer Kerr James.

The Glasgow schoolboy won a standing ovation from the four judges – Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams – for his rendition of Try a Little Tenderness.

Watched by his parents in the audience, Kerr belted out the Otis Redding classic to secure his place in the next round. Cowell gushed: “Apart from your astonishing voice, you’re a really great performer.”

Asked how much the reception meant to him, Lewis said: “Everything. I can’t describe it.”
