As Scottish singer Susan Boyle made history this weekend with her new release, music mogul Simon Cowell has expressed his pride and admiration for her.
"I'm incredibly proud of Susan as well as being delighted for her," says Simon, who masterminded her debut album.
"The success could not not have happened to a lovelier person. She did it her way and made a dream come true."
Susan has sold more than 410,000 copies of I Dreamed A Dream since its release on November 24, making it the fastest-selling debut album in British history.
