Footage of Britain's Got Talent contender Susan Boyle is likely to become the most viewed on the internet.

Videos of the 47-year-old's performance of I Dreamed A Dream have already beaten footage of President Obama's inauguration speech.

Boyle's audition has now reportedly been viewed more than 100 million times.

One of the videos of her performance has already had over 36 million views in a week.

Currently the most watched clip on YouTube is the video for Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend.

The unemployed Scottish church volunteer is the current favourite to win the series.

She's been offered a spot on Oprah Winfrey's chat show in the US, and has been interviewed by various TV channels since her appearance.

Even Hollywood stars have shown their support for Boyle, with Demi Moore posting an appreciative comment on Twitter.
