Susan Boyle tops the UK and US charts simultaneously

After the news that Susan Boyle has topped the U.S album chart, she has now gone one step further and is at the top of the UK chart, too.

This impressive feat has propelled her into the position of the first act in 40 years to be at the top spot, simultaneously, in the U.S and UK charts. Other artists to have achieved the same success have been The Monkees in 1967 and The Beatles in 1969.

In addition to this incredible achievement, Boyle has also sold over 10 million records worldwide after being discovered on a British talent show. 

Watch her perform 'Perfect Day' live at the Pride of Britain Awards here:
