Nine years after she came in second on Britain’s Got Talent, Susan Boyle once again found herself singing in front of Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. The newest version of the show features former winners and other finalists from around the world competing to be crowned champion of champions.
Despite now being famous and having an estimated worth of $33 million, Boyle still hopes to win a Got Talent series. “For those who maybe don’t have the confidence to do things, for those who maybe don’t have a voice, the ones who people tend to ignore, I feel I’m a champion for them,” she said.
Boyle received a standing ovation after performing the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses.” Cowell said, “I can’t think of any other contestant who has defined this show better than you, if I’m being honest with you.

Mel B agreed. “I just want to say what an absolute honor and a pleasure it is to be sitting here and listening to you, your angelic voice,” she said — then surprised Boyle by pressing the golden buzzer, thus sending her straight through to the finals.
America’s Got Talent: The Champions airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
