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