Susan Boyle Is Classy And All, But What About *This* Version Of 'Wild Horses'?
Cowell's main glove this week is Susan Boyle, whose I Dreamed A Dream set a record by having the best opening sales week for a debut album in U.K. history. The LP sold 410,000 copies. Here in the U.S., I Dreamed A Dream is expected to move well over 600,000 units when the new chart is announced later in the week.
As if that wasn't enough to monsoon your knickers, Boyle's rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" debuted at #9 in the singles chart. Meanwhile, remember when that hot kid sang "Wild Horses" in Camp? Good times. That trashy flick was kind of the precursor to Glee.
What the hell ever happened to him?
Back on the U.K. singles chart, ot much else going on, other than Mariah Carey flopping her way to #19 with "I Want To Know What Love Is" (at least it's a hit somewhere), and Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" entering at #30.
