Susan Boyle amazes Aberdeen

Susan Boyle proved to fans at the AECC in Aberdeen that she was a singing phenomenon, as she performed in the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

The singer earned a standing ovation as she belted out the hits Memory and I Dreamed a Dream.

The air was filled with anticipation as the audience waited to see if Susan – nicknamed SuBo – would appear.

Doubts had surrounded Susan Boyle’s appearance in Aberdeen after she missed a number of dates of the Britain’s Got Talent tour to rest.

But Susan, from Blackburn, thrilled thousands of fans by showing off the voice that shot her to global stardom.

Susan Boyle wasn’t the only star of the show as the 10 finalists from the Britain’s Got Talent put on a spectacular show.

Winning dance troupe Diversity got the crowd clapping with their energetic and impressive routines.

Twelve-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi also stunned fans as he sang love songs including the Michael Jackson hit Who’s Loving You.

And the audience were speechless as saxophonist Julian Smith played the tune All By Myself.

Other Britain’s Got Talent acts included 10-year-old Hollie Steel who confidently showed off her vocal range.

An act which sent the audience into fits of laughter was comedy duo Stavros Flatley.

The pair got the crowd on their feet as they ran across the stage in red jackets and blond wigs, while pulling comical faces.

And later the father-and-son duo made a hilarious appearance as they joined dance troupe Flawless in an upbeat number.

The girls in the audience went crazy for Shaun Smith, who sang the classic U2 hit With or Without You.

Screams filled the arena as the 17-year-old wooed his female fans in a tight unbuttoned white shirt and jeans.

Grandfather and granddaughter duo 2 Grand entertained younger members of the audience as they performed a hit from the children’s film Aladdin.

Dancer 11-year-old Aidan Davis also excited the crowd with his tight and effortless moves.

And the dance turns kept coming as the crowd enjoyed a special guest appearance by last year’s winner George Sampson.

Presenter of the Britain’s Got More Talent show Stephen Mulhern entertained with gags and surprises as he hosted the live show.

And the night was complete with an appearance by DJ Talent.

Paul Potts not competing with Susan Boyle

Paul Potts has insisted that he does not regard Susan Boyle as a rival following her recent success.

Boyle has secured a strong international fanbase since making her debut on Britain’s Got Talent in April, mirroring Potts’s own experience on the ITV1 programme’s first series in 2007.

The Scottish singer is expected to soon join Potts on Simon Cowell’s record label, however the show’s original winner does not believe that they are in competition.

Speaking to Seven magazine, he explained: “We sing different styles of music. And one’s a male voice and one’s a female voice, and that makes a difference.”

Potts also revealed that he has become more ambitious since making his TV debut two years ago.

He commented: “It’s good to get a day off occasionally. But when you’re in the market, you think: ‘What could I be doing with today to become even more successful?’ You think: ‘Just get me some work. Get me a performance on a channel’. You don’t get too many opportunities and you have to grab each one, because I have to be a success if I’m going to continue to do this.”

Potts released his second album Passione earlier this month.
