Susan Boyle's Performance Garners Over 60 Million Views in One Week
Posted on April 19, 2009Susan Boyle has gone from obscurity to a household name in just one week. The Washingon Post reports that Susan Boyle's audition on Britain's Got Talent has now been seen over 66 million times. The Post says this breaks a record for the number of views a video has been seen in a week. Over 30 million of the views are from the YouTube video alone, which appears to be racing for the top of YouTube's most-viewed list.
It's amazing how Susan's performance has viraled around the Internet so quickly. Services like Twitter and Facebook allow people to share information very quickly and this has really helped the number grow rapidly. Susan Boyle has also been on a number of talk shows including the CBS Early Show (see clip and CNN's Larry King, where she covered Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Susan hasn't been on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yet but he used her video in a skit for his show. These appearances plus people sharing the video on social networks really helped Susan Boyle obtain a massive number of views very quickly.
We hope this incredible coverage will result in a big music career for her.
