Susan Boyle is unassuming, unemployed, and not only is she unmarried, the 47-year-old says she's never been kissed.

Not quite what you'd expect from Britain's new singing sensation.

The Scottish church singer has become a smash Internet hit since wowing a cynical audience and judge Simon Cowell in the first episode of the new "Britain’s Got Talent" series.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore even wrote to each other about the performance on Twitter, reports the London Times, with Kutcher tweeting: “This just made my night," and Moore replying: “You saw it made me teary!"

Boyle was initially greeted with scornful looks after confessing she lived with her cat and had never been kissed, but her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical "Les Miserables," earned her a rare standing ovation.

Boyle is now considered a favorite to win the competition whose prize includes the equivalent of about $147,000 and a chance to sing for the Queen.

Cowell is also reportedly organizing a record deal for her, the Times reported.,2933,516815,00.html
