The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell

The success of the singing plumber inspired her to audition on this year's "Britain's Got Talent," Boyle told the Evening News.

"Andrew Muir was fantastic last year and somebody local going on a show like that definitely inspired me to go on," she said.

Another possible inspiration? The unlikely winner of the show two years ago: Paul Potts. The Welsh mobile phone salesman with the crooked teeth is now a millionaire after selling more than 4 million copies of his album "One Chance" and topping the charts in 14 different countries.

Boyle is set to go the same path as Potts and become an international singing sensation, according to some reviewers. The winner of the show receives prize money of roughly $147,000 and the chance to perform in front of the Queen at the annual Royal Variety Performance.
