Susan Boyle Did a Show-Stopping Musical Theater Duet with Donny Osmond
The Britain's Got Talent Season 3 finalist has been a long admirer of Osmond's.
In 2012, Britain's Got Talent Season 3 runner-up Susan Boyle and Donny Osmond joined forces on Dancing with the Stars for a thrilling duet of "This Is the Moment" from the 1990 musical Jekyll & Hyde.
The performance started out with Osmond crooning the first lyrics with his signature rich tone. Although Boyle appeared shy at first when it was her turn to sing, her voice soared and sounded majestic when she hit the sustained notes. Check out the performance here.
In this sweet interview behind-the-scenes of DWTS after the performance, Boyle revealed that she had listened to Osmond's albums at an early age and was a big fan of his. Osmond returned the admiration, saying that he cried when he first heard her Britain's Got Talent Audition and that he watched it "probably 20 times."
Unsurprisingly, the crowd "went bananas" when the two performed "This Is the Moment" live. "It was just the most amazing moment for me, too. Because I got the chills when you sang," Osmond complimented Boyle's performance.
About "This Is the Moment"

"This Is the Moment" lyrics
This is the moment; this is the day
When I send all my doubts and demons on their way.
Every endeavor I have made ever
Is coming into play, is here and now today.
This is the moment, this is the time
When the momentum and the moment are in rhyme
Give me this moment, this momentous moment;
I'll gather up my past, and make some sense at last.
This is the moment, when all I've done
All of the dreaming, scheming and screaming becomes one.
This is the day, just see it shine
When all I've lived for becomes mine.
This is the moment, this is the hour
When I can open tomorrow like a flower.
And with my hand to, everything I've planned to
Fulfill my grand design; see all my stars align;
This is the moment, my final test;
Destiny beckoned, I never reckoned second best.
I won't look down, I must not fall;
This is the moment, the sweetest moment of them all.
This is the moment, forget all the odds
This day or never I'll sit forever with the gods.
When I look back I will recall, moment for moment
This was the moment,
The greatest moment of them all
