By now, everyone has probably watched Susan Boyle, a Scottish singer's audition video? On YouTube, Susan Boyle's performance has been viewed over 66 million times in one week..... so the Internet is her stage, and the 47-year-old who has said she's never heard of YouTube is the Web's hottest entertainer.
According to Visible Measures, which tracks videos from YouTube, MySpace and other video-sharing sites, Boyle's audition has generated 66.3 million views. On YouTube alone, it's been viewed more than 30 million times. The 7-minute video that was posted on YouTube last Saturday and then widely circulated online easily eclipsed more high-profile videos that have been around for months. Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin has clocked in 34.2 million views, said the folks at Visible Measures, while President Obama's victory speech on election night has generated 18.5 million views. In less than a week, Boyle topped them.
