Perhaps Susan Boyle should not sing at the Royal Wedding.

The Scottish sensation, who continues to rule the Billboard album charts, had an unfortunate incident this morning on The View. Performing the classic song "O Holy Night," Boyle missed a note and lost her way. She motioned for the music to stop, but ended up standing awkwardly silent for a few moments before the hosts rushed in to save her.

See for yourself and then send in words of encouragement: hang in there, Susan! This was just a one-time hiccup:

He's already a reality show judge and record producer. But Simon Cowell is looking to add another title to his resume: wedding planner.

Speaking to Extra, Cowell offered up an idea for who should sing at the royal nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"Susan Boyle would be perfect," said the former American Idol panelist, adding that Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream" would be the ideal wedding song for the pair.

As the world knows by now, William and Kate got engaged last month and have scheduled their exchanging of vows to take place at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. Billions are expected to watch on television.

Would Boyle be able to handle that pressure? Do you think she'd made a good choice to sing at the reception?

Taylor Swift is reportedly holding on to a handsome man these days. And it's a good thing, too, because she's lost her grip on the top Billboard 200 ranking.

After spending two weeks at number-one with "Speak Now," Swift finds herself in second place today, due to the release of "The Gift," a holiday album from Susan Boyle. There really is no stopping this Scottish sensation.

"Singing is the best job in the world, it really is fantastic. I'm just an ordinary woman who showed a bit of determination and this is what has happened. To have a second No.1 album is wonderful and something I never expected," the crooner said upon hearing the news.

Susan Boyle has not lived a perfect life.

She recently opened up to Oprah about the bullying she faced as a child, and we all know how she suffered a couple breakdowns during her run to the finals on Britain's Got Talent.

But the Scottish singer has bounced back rather nicely, having released a record-breaking album and earning acclaim from critics and fans around the globe. Below, we've posted Susan's latest music video, for the single "Perfect Day." Watch now and react: What do you think of it?

In a recent PSA, Khloe Kardashian said was bullied because people compared her to Kim and Kourtney and because Perez Hilton wrote some mean things about her on his website.

That's unfortunate, but it's nothing compared to what Susan Boyle went through growing up.

The singer, who shocked the world with her performance on Britain's Got Talent last year, talked to Oprah about these experiences yesterday, and said bullies burned "my clothes with a cigarette" and "hit [me] on the head" during her teenage years in Scotland.

"That is the physical, but the more hurtful is the psychological," Boyle said. "Name-calling. Really repeating name-calling. It made me feel as if nobody loved me. I didn't really matter. I was just a target. Once you give bullies that power, they've really got a hold on you."

Susan Boyle did not have a perfect day when she was scheduled to perform on America's Got Talent a couple weeks ago.

The Scottish singer reportedly suffered a meltdown upon learning she did not have permission to sing Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" on that NBC competition.

But all licensing glitches have been worked out and Boyle will actually include this ballad on her upcoming album, "The Gift." Listen to her version of it now and then cast a vote:

What do you think of the single?

Just how much has the life of Susan Boyle changed over the last year? Consider this rumor:

There's a good chance the Britain's Got Talent runner-up will perform for Pope Benedict XVI when he visits England in September, TV Guide reports.

Negotiations are underway, though some believe this might not take place simply because the Pope could get arrested once he touches down in another country, due to his alleged child molestation cover-up. But that seems unlikely to take place.

Assuming he's a free man, Benedict XVI will hold Mass at Glasgow's Bellahouston Park on September 16. If all goes according to plan, Boyle will take the stage then, in front of her most important audience member to date.

No offense, Simon Cowell. But come on.

At some point this year, Ryan Murphy is hoping to combine two of pop culture's most buzzed-about recent phenomenons.

The Glee creator is on record as saying he hopes Susan Boyle would consider a guest-starring role on his hit Fox show. In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Murphy says Boyle wold make an ideal lunch lady in a December episode:

“I think Kurt would just die to give her a Christmas makeover. I don’t even know if she’s interested, but it’s been pitched."

In real life, of course, the Britain's Got Talent finalist has already undergone a makeover.

Just Being Susan

Less than a full season into its run, Glee has already welcomed such guest stars as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris and Molly Shannon.

Would Boyle be a good fit on the show? Should she be next?

Books are all the rage in Hollywood; some dumb, some REALLY dumb, and at least one hopefully inspiring.

Earlier today, we announced that the Kardashian sisters are planning a relationship-themed tome. Insert your own joke now.

Kelly LeBrock, the ex-wife of shady actor Steven Seagal, also plans to exploit her husband's alleged seedy side by penning a biography about the father of her three kids. How charming.

But Susan Boyle is here to rescue us from all this inappropriate madness. She'll tell her own story in The Woman I was Born to Be, a true autobiography due this fall.

”I think I’ve grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I’m not so frightened anymore," she said, adding:

“I’m writing this book to try to show that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and I hope it will benefit other people. My story demonstrates that you shouldn’t just look at the label, you should look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, and I hope that telling it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you’ve got courage and a willingness to go on no matter what the circumstances.”

Amen, SuBo! Will you purchase her self-written tale?

Almost exactly a year ago, Susan Magdalane Boyle garnered widespread, international attention when she appeared as a contestant on Britain's Got Talent.

Ever since she sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables that night, she became a sensation, and after nearly winning the competition, her first album was released in November of last year and debuted at #1 on charts around the globe.

Adam Lambert may not be one, but the surprise star has attracted legions of fans worldwide. The Scottish singer turns 49 today. What a happy occasion!
