LONDON (AP)—She dreamed a dream -- and it almost came true.
Susan Boyle's reality show journey ended Saturday with a second-place finish to a dance troupe called "Diversity" on the final of the television show " Britain's Got Talent."
During her finals performance, Boyle looked polished, wearing a sparkling, floor-length gown. She returned to the song that made her an internet sensation -- "I Dreamed A Dream" from " Les Miserables."
The winners earned a 100,000 pound ($159,000) prize and the chance to perform before Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Show.
