“I have goosebumps on my goosebumps,” marvelled Cowell. “Oh my god, Susan, that really, really took me back, all those years. I can remember vividly… how disgusting I was on the day before you sang.
“And then what you did and what happened afterwards and to end the show… it’s been an amazing night. I mean, seriously, it was fantastic. You’re a champion.”
Fans took to Twitter to praise Boyle’s stunning rendition of the song.
