As most of you already know.

Susan Boyle came in 2nd place last night on the highly successful show in England. (Britain's Got Talent)

Do anyone agree with me that Susan will become a Millionaire by the end of this year anyways?

I don't think she has anything to worry about:
Boyle backlash -- but Susan set to cash in - CNN.com

Boyle could still be the real winner from the series, which became a global hit after clips of her audition of "I Dreamed a Dream" racked up millions of hits on YouTube.

"£6M superstar" said the Sunday Mirror, claiming that "Britain's Got Talent" impresario Simon Cowell plans to take Boyle across the Atlantic to "conquer the U.S."

The News of the World upped Boyle's likely earnings on the back of "Britain's Got Talent" to £8 million ($13 million).

On top of a multi-million dollar record deal and share of album sales, Boyle is also set to earn from a Hollywood movie of her rags-to-riches life, a book deal, and millions more from image rights, endorsements and television appearances, the paper said.

In an interview with the News of the World, Cowell said Boyle could be the biggest star he had ever discovered.

"They don't care in America whether she wins a British TV show -- they care about the woman they saw singing on YouTube," a Cowell insider also told the paper. "If anything, £8 million in her first year might be an underestimate."

My post above confirmed that Simon Cowell has already signed her for not only a record deal but also a movie, book deal, endorsements, television appearances, and more.

No. No she shouldnt have. The group that one first place was far more amazing. Did you see the group that won?

Susan is a good singer and should do very well performing. I doubt that she will ever ever have a CD available. She's more of the perform on broadway stage type singer. I think she's so popular (especially on CD) because she's just like most women who visit here every day - frumpy, older, not attractive, single. But she's become a hero because nearer the downside of her life, she achieved some of the success that she always hoped for. This makes many people connect with her.

The dance group that won was amazing. I mean, they were more amazing than the Jabawakeez (sp). I think the Brits got it right with who won this show.

She needs it. The thing is, many of the women who like her will all of a sudden not like her so much if she does that. Some where already complaining that she "changed" by plucking her eyebrows, dressing differently and wearing makeup. If she goes out and gets plastic surgery done the mid-lifers and elderly women who make up her fan base will no longer like her.

Yet "dance groups" are not easily marketed for profits. How many people will actually pay to see them perform? Add to that, how many people will pay multiple times to see them perform?

Dance groups are not money-makers. The bottom line will be the bottom dollar (or pound).
