The world first met Susan Boyle in April 2009, when the shy and unassuming singer performed “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent.

At the time, the mild-mannered, middle-aged Scottish native was living alone with her cat. She was the epitome of an underdog.

Though Susan was the runner-up of her season, she went on to sell 20 million records and became a pop culture sensation in the States.

Nearly 10 years later, Susan has returned to the reality talent show on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. This was the first time she performed in front of Simon Cowell since her big TV debut. He, along with the entire audience, completely lit up when she walked onstage.

Once again, Susan blew the judges away with her powerful voice and beautiful rendition of “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones — so much so that the 57-year-old immediately advanced to the finals once Mel B slammed the coveted Golden Buzzer.

When Susan broke down in tears, Simon jumped up from his seat and ran onto the stage for a heartwarming embrace.
