Susan Boyle defeated on YouTube too?


Boyle's Got Talent but, unfortunately for her, not the crown

Boyle's Got Talent but, unfortunately for her, not the crown

The nation’s favourite Scottish lady lost out to Diversity on the Birtian’s Got Talent finale last night. Who would have thought it? The clear favourite from the get-go will not be performing at the Royal Variety Performance, at least not as BGT victor.


More surprisingly, her popularity seems to have dwindled a little online throughout the month.

Boyle’s finale performance (below) is only the 9th most viewed today, surprising considering her previous run on the top spot.

Perhaps the singer lost her place in some public hearts when the story of her alleged anger towards rival acts and journalists was reported?

What’s sure is that an awful lot of bookmakers will certainly be smiling this morning.

And it’s not just Boyle who hasn’t won on the YouTube ratings scale. Diversity, the actual winners of the contest, miss out this morning to Aidan Davis, everyone’s favourite George Sampson of 2009.


The video of Hollie Steel breaking down on stage follows as a close third.

In future posts, we’ll be looking at the impact of virals on celebrity, so make sure to keep checking back for more Boyle-based fun.
