In Britain, Susan’s debut album was recognised as the fastest selling UK debut album of all time selling 411,820 copies, beating the previous fastest selling debut of all time, Spirit by Leona Lewis.
In the US, the album sold 701,000 copies in its first week, the best opening week for a debut artist in over a decade
The title of this album came from the song Susan performed during her audition for the show.
I Dreamed A Dream is a haunting ballad from hit musical Les Miserables.
Susan shocked viewers at her initial audition, as she didn’t seem a likely star. In fact her old fashioned style, flyaway hair and awkward demeanour which was initially mocked by judges.
Susan herself spoke of this saying: “I know what they were thinking, but why should it matter as long as I can sing? It’s not a beauty contest.”
Her powerful operatic voice wowed the judges, who were quick to rescind their initial thoughts.
Now the singer has an estimated net worth of around £22 million, and has achieved her first audition goal of being “as successful as Elaine Paige”.
Lorraine is on ITV from 8.30am
