Boyle is nominated for a Grammy
Friday 03 December 2010
Susan Boyle will take on Lady Gaga and Katy Perry in a bid to bag a Grammy award, but said she does not expect to win.
The Scottish singer was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut album I Dreamed A Dream. The record, which has sold more than 10 million copies, is up against Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster and Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Justin Bieber and John Mayer were also nominated.
Boyle said: "I don't expect to win for a moment but how fantastic just to be recognised like this with a nomination on my first album."
The honours will be presented at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in February. There was more British success with folk-rockers Mumford & Sons and Florence and the Machine nominated for Best New Artist. Veteran guitarist Jeff Beck picked up five nominations.
