It was bound to happen. Britain's Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle has gotten a makeover. The 47 year old Scottish singer has shocked and amazed people around the globe with her powerful voice and her unpolished and, dare we say, frumpy appearance. The next round of judging for Boyle will be on May 23.
It was just a matter of time before she would feel compelled to make a few changes. The angelic warbler has had her hair cut, colored and straightened and it looks like she may have had her heavy eyebrows shaped. She also had a facial to brighten her skin and she is wearing a touch of makeup.
She has been shopping as well. Photographers captured shots of her wearing red pumps and tan fitted slacks, topped by a white blouse and fashionable leather jacket and Burberry scarf.
Simon Cowell weighed in on Susan's sudden desire to change her appearance. He told ET, "I am tired now of hearing about the way she looks or the kissing or this or that. Get yourself together, sweetheart, for the big one, which is the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent. Chose the right song. Focus yourself. Shut your front door and maybe take a holiday and come back as the person you want to be, not the person you think you should be."
Part of her appeal has been her unadorned persona. Hopefully her huge viewer following will accept these minor cosmetic changes and still be drawn to her magic. For a walk down memory lane, we've got performance video. Listen to Cry Me A River here. Check out I Dreamed A Dream here.
It looks like Susan's toughest competition will come from 12 year old Shaheen Jafargholi. Check out his amazing rendition of the Michael Jackson song Who's Lovin' You here.
It turns out one of Susan Boyle's idols is Donny Osmond. She confessed that she would love to sing with him. He is reportedly thrilled at the prospect.
