Susan Boyle is looking at a fairytale end to a fairytale year.

She is being tipped to top the charts in Britain and America this Christmas.

Susan stunned America earlier this week with her spine-tingling version of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses."

Now, British bookies Ladbrokes say her album "I Dreamed A Dream" is a hot favorite to top the charts in both countries when it is released around Thanksgiving.

The shy songstress has kept a low profile after she rocketed into America's hearts on Wednesday.

Poignantly, she visited Disneyland in California, saying she was fulfilling a long-held childhood dream.

It's funny how we take these things for granted in America.

I can remember as a boy growing up in Tipperary how I would hear stories about coming to America.

Stories about Hollywood and Disney and all the things that children dream about.

I got to live my dream here in America and I've visited all the places I used to dream about when I was a kid.

I'm delighted that Susan is getting to live her dream too.
