SUSAN BOYLE was met with rapturous applause last night as she took to the same stage in Glasgow where her Britain's Got Talent dream kicked off a few months ago.
Boyle thrilled 9000 fans at a packed SECC to cast aside any doubts she would perform in the Britain's Got Talent live show.
A day earlier the now world-famous singer from West Lothian had pulled out of the event in Manchester.
But the plucky church worker wowed the crowds as she belted out I Dreamed a Dream, the song which made her a global superstar.
Not only did she receive a standing ovation at the end of the Glasgow gig, the packed hall took to their feet as she walked on to stage in a floor-length sparkling dress and twice during her performance, which included Memory from the musical Cats.
Host Stephen Mulhern introduced her by saying, "Now it's time to welcome the most Googled lady on earth. "The world's talking about one lady. This lady."
Many fans were waving home-made banners, some said "We love you Susan" and "Susan is the best".
Her performance included strong versions of Memory and signature tune I Dreamed a Dream.
One fan, Bryan Felvus, 23, from Motherwell in Lanarkshire, said: "She was brilliant. She had to be here tonight. She was great and deserved every bit of support she got and she got the loudest cheer of the evening."
