Britain’s unlikely singing sensation Susan Boyle, the frumpy church volunteer who wowed the world with her angelic voice, was on Saturday voted into the next round of a TV talent show that propelled her to global fame.
The 47 year old, who lives alone with her cat Pebbles in one of Scotland’s poorest regions, will now perform in a live show on Sunday, weeks after her surprising performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Miserables” shocked judges and charmed tens of millions of people worldwide.

Sara Lee, a spokeswoman for “Britain’s Got Talent” said that Boyle’s performance on Sunday will be available almost instantly on Internet, allowing her international fans a chance to watch the singer’s latest appearance.
But she refused to say what song Boyle will perform in the broadcast, which will be screened live in Britain.
Boyle set the internet record for the number of views in one week.
