Scottish diva Susan Boyle will take on megastars like Lady Gaga in the hope of landing a Grammy, but she has already admitted that she really does not expect to win.

Boyle was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut I Dreamed A Dream, but the album, which has sold more than 10 million copies, is up against Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster and Katy Perry's Teenage Dream.

Boyle told the press this week: "Up against wonderful artists like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, 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 Grammy awards will be given out at the 53 annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in February.
