I heard she was doing a cover album Susan Boyle sings Motorhead and if that is successful she is going to do a Black Sabbath album.

Susan Boyle has never toured. When did Enya last tour? Never. Don't get your point.

Yep. And it's worldwide news believe it or not. Been picked up by the NY Times, and CBS, NBC and ABC TV in the States and Canada, OZ, NZ and Malaysia, Indonesia, name a country with media. Movie will be in theaters at Xmas plus Subo will also have CD #5 out then, too. Haha. Another day, another $$$ million. POOR SUBO.

SB will never tour. She can only remember two songs at the most. That's why she guests with people like donny osmond.

There's a lesson in there in making good television.
No, there's a lesson there in making popular television.

Basically, spoon-feed horse muck to cretins who are dazzled by the fact that a reasonably nice voice could come out of an unattractive face.

Quite all right. I'm sure no one else ever has. My charitable effort for the day.

But Susan Boyle's sensational debut was 4 years ago. She's still making albums and still selling. Not in the millions anymore. Her 4th album released last November is at 500, 000 + sales WW, but not bad for a middle aged woman, who sings standards and never gets radio play and, to date, has not toured. She has a "proven fan base" as Sony says, and that fan base will at least look at anything she's involved in, including the new MW commercial in the US, and now, this Xmas movie out next December. 90% of current singers would kill for her opportunities and wealth.

Subo keeps chugging along. "The Little Engine That Could".

....with only a few hundred hours of TV coverage, multimillion pound promotional campaign, endless press coverage, and micromanaging by one of the richest and most influential men in the business. Truly a great underdog story.

Enya's style of music doesn't (chillout/ambient) suit live concerts, while Susan's does.
So comparing them is a wrong choice.

The new ifpi report says her last album only met sales targets in New Zealand, eveywhere else it flopped. That is why they stopped all the promo early.

Total shipped was 500K in 2012, expected was 1.3million.

Also, her fanbase is quit small. The best way to tell would be to release outside of q4-sales would be less than 300k without xmas sales.

The endless press coverage was in 2009, my dear. One of the reasons Subo, is so profitable to her label is that there are no multimillion$$$ promotion campaigns. A couple of appearances on the usual talent shows and that's it, plus free media. And still she chugs on, living simply, with occasional splashouts on Spanish vacations and bling. And that is why, when she retires, she'll still have $$$millions.

I tell the truth, read the ifpi, it's all there. Sony even says it. But I guess you can't accept it.
You miss the point, Sunrise girl. I am a fan of Susan Boyle. I enjoy her voice and am waiting to hear her fifth album. And wish her well in every possible way.

But what is YOUR motivation? You clearly don't like Susan Boyle for some obscure reason of your own. And you seek to put a negative spin on any information you can find. There must be something else you can find to amuse yourself. Or perhaps not.

To be frank, I thought Susan Boyle's original BGT audition was as manipulated as hell by producers and editors to get the exact reaction they got so I'm not really a fan of that one.
I think the whole thing was planned and storyboarded down to the last detail before Susan even turned up ..

I quit like Susan, but it's her fans who are giving her a bad name. Said this before, they make things up, believe it and then expect others believe it 's true.

I tell the truth.

And enya cannot of course sing live, as there is so much post production and layering used on most of the popular album tracks.

Yeah, It wouldn't work live. While Susan's is a straightforward vocal style, and performed in every theatre in the world this way.

She got annoyed yesterday in Ireland, she threw a strop because she couldn't have a wheelchair to board a plane when there was nothing wrong with her.

All these talent shows are set up, the producers know the contestants life stories before they even get pass round 1, and they hear them first before the judges so they know who is good and who is bad and who will be the underdog etc. Plus then u have the editing and the judges must have an idea of who is coming as they know the right questions to ask
