Taylor Swift vs. Susan Boyle In Epic Battle For Year's Top-Selling Artist

Taylor Swift vs. Susan Boyle In Epic Battle For Year's Top-Selling Artist-photo

The epic struggle for a global music domination has come down to this: the young phenom teen-heartthrob-dater, Taylor Swift vs. the never-been-kissed, coal-mining town, overnight success story, Susan Boyle for the title of top selling music artist of the year. And we can think of only one reasonable way to settle this: a pudding-wrestling match to the death.

JK but seriously, neither of these ladies were on anybody's radar just a year or two ago.  Now, they're scooping up awards and their CDs are flying off record-store shelves. 

Consider the fact that Swift and Boyle are competing for the top spot, and that this year has also seen major breakouts from the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, and this most definitely can be labeled as music's Year of the Female Artist.

Tell us who you are pulling for as top selling music artist of the year?

    Can't wait for the day when you eat those words Robbie: I hope Taylor does go to Japan and if so I wish her every success. I have no problem with that. I was just trying to point out that Susan is "Global" whereas Taylor,so far, is not. No offence intended!!!

    I am a massive Taylor Swift fan but wouldn't mind either way who won. Both are completely inspiring but ,hey I'm Scottish, won't offend my own kind so rock on Susan! She's one of a kind. The best to the both of them. x Hey H - Nice to have you on board. Done any "Glasgow Kissing"? No, you're too nice for that!!!!!

    Susan Boyle's fans can sit on their computers and cheat the polls all they want but Taylor is the best. Susan cancelled Canada twice but is going to Japan because she wants to win over Japan next. She's all about numbers and money - that's all she cares about. She stinks big time.

    No thanks. I would much rather listen to the one who doesn't sing like she has a haggis stuck in her throat. Roger: I noted your liking for "Haggis" I therefore wondered if you would like to join a "Haggis Hunt" on one of my estates in Scotland next month. Price negotiable. Accommodation,breakfast included.

    dolly ~ Susan Boyle is an "old hag???" Does she look like an "old hag" in the photo above??? (Thank goodness they used a nice photo of her. These articles aren't always so kind. Not everyone looks their best 100% of the time and they are often caught off guard in photos.) I have to assume that you are very young. Age 48 is not "old." Wait until you get there and it suddenly won't be so old. Your age is certainly showing in the insults you hurled at her. A mature person would just graciously state their preference without putting the other person down. Have a heart for someone who has been pursuing her dream for many, many years and is FINALLY getting the recognition and validation that she so deserves, and the "professional singing career" that she has longed for, for so many years. Bravo to Susan for not giving up on her dream!! Taylor is also very talented and I wish her the best. shes an old hag because her old c**t stinks

    Susan Boyle isn't winning. Taylor Swift is winning and will win again. Well the 19 year old over the road from me who normally plays Heavy Metal or Donk loves wild Horses and thinks Subo is cool! Tammy Todd the Twitter entertainment reporter has noted that Susan has crossed the boundaries for all ages, genders and crucially colour, and its NOT just white female baby boomers buying her album. Kids are tweeting about her, young men in the Bronx, she crosses many divides. My friend took her kids to see the BGT tour live and they were not bothered about her, they were more interested in the teenage acts, and came back raving about her - said she was charismatic and had an awesome voice which knocked your socks off. At the end of the day taste is subjective, you may not like the song choices on the album, fair enough, but that does not mean she does not have talent. People like Barbra Streisand - who says she is "like a poet singing", Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Bette Middler, Lulu and Liz Taylor all rate her singing highly. Elaine Paige says her voice is "glorious", Michael Ball says its "beautiful". The woman who coached the entire cast of Andrew Lloyd Weber's new show said she has "one of the bets musical theatre voices I have heard." Susan has a pure an old fashioned musical theatre voice and she sings it straight and from the heart. He strength is in interpretation,. Comparing her with someone who is of a completely different genre is futile and pointless. Both these singers are very gifted in their own unique ways. Why does everything have to be a competition - there is room in the world for both? It would be a sad and boring world if all the singers looked and sounded the same , we need singers who are different, and different does not mean better or worse, it means just that different. We need diversity from singers and performers and we all have different preferences. We should celebrate that diversity instead of squabbling and resorting to bullying. Good luck to both of these very talented and gifted ladies, may they each succeed and be happy in their own field of endeavour and may we all continue to enjoy listening to them.

    Taylor Swift is a darling. She is always cheerful and happy. Susan Boyle is an old hag who looks like she wants to peel someone's skin off if she had the chance. Taylor handled the Kayle West thing like a professional. If it were Susan, she would have turned it into a freak show. dolly ~ Susan Boyle is an "old hag???"

    Accept this as a fact. Susan should have won BGT but she didn't because no one wanted her singing for the Queen including the Queen herself (special request). Simon has allowed Susan to ride a little high for awhile to make up for what he had done. Susan has already had her day - now it's over for her and Simon will be leaving the talent show business. OMG, you are really one sick individual. Special request...........lololol. I guess the Queen told you that herself. I'm so glad I read this, it's the best laugh I had in a long time. Thanks.

    Taylor Swift's CD has been out a full year, Ms Boyle's less than 2 months, so in that respect Ms Boyle is already the clear winner. Can she top Swift in the short time left? After all she's already accomplished it would not suprise me. I very much hope she does, she's earned it. Get help before you become a danger to society.

    If he'd jumped up when Susan was on stage - He'd a got a "Glasgow Kiss" which would have "Hospitalised Him" and quite right To. To those not acquainted with Glasgow a "Glasgow Kiss" is a head butt applied to the Victims Head. Most commonly witnessed at "chucking out time" in the city's bars on Saturday evenings

  • Glasgowdan

    No one jumped onstage and embarrassed Susan Boyle in front of millions. Taylor is only 18 years old. Someone so young with so much talent and is as grounded as she is simply amazes me. She has beauty grace and charm like a princess. When she speaks she glows with confidence. She is a role model for young people at the time when they need it the most. Taylor is not only a very talented vocalist, she's a very creative song writer too. Taylor is the best thing that happened to America in a very long time. If he'd jumped up when Susan was on stage - He'd a got a "Glasgow Kiss" which would have "Hospitalised Him" and quite right To.

    I'm sorry Darcy. I didn't mean to attack or offend you - I was responding to the rude suggestion that Susan Boyle was lipsynching/miming. I re-read my post and it does seem very rude, so please accept my apologies.After wading through pages of very cruel, rude, bullying and ignorant comments about Susan Boyle, by the time I got to that one I was in a horrible mood. So, I guess the bullies won that round. No more though.Yes, I am saying she wasn't lipsynching/miming and suggesting to the previous poster that she actually watch the video because it's obvious she's singing live.Thanks so much for posting the video and for calling me out. :)Happy holidays!

    Bill, Susans CD wasn't released until Nov. 23rd. It has not yet been out for 1 month. I think this is quite unfair to expect her to beat someone who has more than a full year lead. Susan's CD is outselling everyone, Taylor included. How can you compare someones album that has been out for 12 months and 1 week to someone's that has only been out not even 4 weeks?

    Susan had plenty of support - her parents. Not many grown children get to live their whole lives with their parents. I was speaking of support in the educational system and from those who were monsters toward her. The fact is that, education has come a long ways since Miss Boyle and I my self were in school. Educators know more how to handle and stimulate those with learning disabilities now than they did then. Even Albert Einstein had learning disabilities and look at what he was able to accomplish. Had he had the benefit of today's educators and what they know now he might have created a fuel system that wound never deplete and would be environmentally sound. Miss Boyle's parents did what they could but, those who were charged with educating her were simply woefully ill equipped to bring her along and accentuate her abilities and gifts. I think that one of the good things that can come of her success is that educators can learn a lesson from Miss Boyle and help others who have similar problems today. It is a shame that no one it seems can help the rude and pugnacious individuals who pick at and bully. Alas they shall remain damaged.

    Thank you JDJ! Wonderful comments. You're obviously a good personYes, if she had received support earlier in her life, things may have been very different.

    They call Susan Boyle simple Susie and yet they are the one's so simple minded that they have to get on the Internet and belittle some one for what purpose? I do not care what they say. I do not care who sells the most albums. I wish the best for Taylor Swift who is obviously a very talented young lady. I wish the best for Susan Boyle as she has had a tough life and is also very talented. I like Susan Boyle's music and will continue to listen to it and buy it. I have never bought a Taylor Swift album and have never listened to one of her songs. It is not because I have any thing against her it is simply because I have never heard of her before now. Now I plan to give her a listen. I may like her and I may buy one of her albums I don't know yet. But to name call and belittle people as those have on this site is simply simple minded. If I belittled Miss Swift (especially having never listened to her) just for the sake of promoting Miss Boyle I would be equally simple minded. Why can't people just be happy for them both and stop the ugliness? The tabloids profit from this and no one else. I have to smile thinking of Miss Boyle running through the streets in the raw even if I don't believe it. She is a gutsy lady and she has her problems, but if she had been given help and support instead of being called names and had things thrown at her maybe she would have been an even nicer person than she is. Thank you JDJ! Wonderful comments. You're obviously a good person Yes, if she had received support earlier in her life, things may have been very different. But, then of course, we probably wouldn't have her music and emotional delivery as it is now. (JDJ - I've taken the liberty of putting in some paragraphs just to make your quote a bit easier to read. :)

    Tori - You are so 20th Century. If you have 350million hits on the internet you do not have to sell singles to promote your Album.Although "Wild Horses is an outstanding single few bought it in UK - They just waited to get it on the Album. Susan is global, Taylor is not - Just accept this as a fact!!!! Accept this as a fact. Susan should have won BGT but she didn't because no one wanted her singing for the Queen including the Queen herself (special request). Simon has allowed Susan to ride a little high for awhile to make up for what he had done. Susan has already had her day - now it's over for her and Simon will be leaving the talent show business.

    Surely this debate is only about one thing - "The Voice" Everything else is peripheral. In this aspect Taylor sadly cannot compete. So the answer is simply - Let Taylor write the songs - and let Susan sing them! Problem solved!!!! No thanks. I would much rather listen to the one who doesn't sing like she has a haggis stuck in her throat.

    Her CD is only number one because her fans keep filling their closets with her CD. I guess they figure they can retire nicely from it LOL. The only original song on the entire CD isn't even a big hit. Usually when a CD gets up there - there are one or two songs on it that is a number one hit all over. Its those number one hit singles that get people to buy the CD. Her CD is depressing as hell and who needs to listen to that? If I want depressing, I'll watch the news.

    They call Susan Boyle simple Susie and yet they are the one's so simple minded that they have to get on the Internet and belittle some one for what purpose? I do not care what they say. I do not care who sells the most albums. I wish the best for Taylor Swift who is obviously a very talented young lady. I wish the best for Susan Boyle as she has had a tough life and is also very talented. I like Susan Boyle's music and will continue to listen to it and buy it.

    This article really has brought out the sad ones filled with hatred that they' dump on unsuspecting internet users and celebrities who don't care about them. Well, if people like Erin and Tommy need to make themselves feel better by attacking a woman who's never done anything to them or anyone, go for it. Guess what .... Susan Boyle doesn't care. And neither does anyone else. Which is, I suppose, the crux of your problem. Her CD is only number one because her fans keep filling their closets with her CD.

    No one jumped onstage and embarrassed Susan Boyle in front of millions. Taylor is only 18 years old. Someone so young with so much talent and is as grounded as she is simply amazes me. She has beauty grace and charm like a princess. When she speaks she glows with confidence. She is a role model for young people at the time when they need it the most. Taylor is not only a very talented vocalist, she's a very creative song writer too. Taylor is the best thing that happened to America in a very long time.

    I think if you were to add up all record sells Taylor would win this one hands down. Taylors cd came out in 2008 and sold millions last year. If it came out this year she would have sold 4 or 5 million. Most of songs on her cd are gold or platinum as singles, but who really cares, Im sure they dont. I love Susans voice but I wander who picked the songs for her cd. Is Daydream Believer the best they could come up with? I am sad that there are people saying bad things about Susan, she brings joy to alot of people. I am a Taylor fan and what I love about Taylor is that she has class. If you are a Taylor fan please show some class, Susan and Taylor are a gift from God to make our days a little better.

    Natalie 77words in one sentence - Is that some sort of record?Your English teacher must be in despair! However, I feel I must defend Susan. Susan was unknown one day and had the whole world on her doorstep the next.She then had 6 weeks to wait before the could perform again in the semi finalswith the whole world awaiting her performance. The pressures on her were enormous. In the circumstances she coped pretty well but did crack right at the very end - which was quite understandable. Good luck to you Susan! if I was her and I saw what I looked like on the front page of a newspaper I'd freak out too. She probably scared herself seeing what she looked like - dumpy and looking like a man.

Guess you're not someone who minds hurting others. It must really be irritating, eh? You attack, bully, belittle and dismiss Susan Boyle and yet...... she beat you.

    When Boyle-in-the-BAG can write songs as good as Taylor is the day she will be better.But then that day wont come as she is a mad nutcaseSO TAYLOR WINSTES YES YES For the millionth time - she is disabled. The comments here (from many) are hateful, ignorant and disgusting, and by the way, prejudiced and discriminatory. You are targeting a person's behavior caused by a disability. Does it make you feel important? Would you say such hateful things about someone who walked funny because they had a stroke, or took extra time to get up a hill because they're in a wheelchair? If not, then why attack Susan Boyle. Except to make yourselves feel bigger.

    Thanks for the info. It's also true that Susan couldn't care for her mother most of the time either. A neighbour had to do it but the neighbour doesn't get much credit. Susan treated her mother pretty badly sometimes. Susan has made herself look like a saint. Put a gun in her hand and she would kill someone. The truth always comes out in the end and the real Susan Boyle will too. So now the truth comes out - not about Susan because I don't believe one spiteful word from either you or Diane - but about so many of the people of Blackburn, Scotland. How horrible. You tormented Susan Boyle her entire life and now you do it here on this website. Have you ever tried to care for someone who's dying 24 hours a day? You'd need help, too, that's for sure. Amazing that Susan had to give up performing with her choir and doing the work with her church to stay home with her Mom since she did nothing. Amazing. First, she's regularly tormented in school. Then, she's followed, had things thrown at her and laughed at her whole life. Now, you have the nerve to come onto this website and continue your attacks. She's disabled. She's tough, strong and doing the best she can. And to her incredible credit, she's never said one bad word about any of the scum from Blackburn, Scotland who bullied her for years with impunity and continue with this bullying campaign here. (acknowledging that there are many wonderful angels also in Blackburn) On behalf of all those with brain-located disabilities, I say take your jealous selves somewhere else. The world has acceped Susan Boyle just as she is, whether you judgemental, close-minded, ignorant people few do or not.

    The salient point here is surely that all the great "Superstars" - Presley, Lennon and especially Jackson have been "Crackers" Susan is hence destined for "Superstardom" whereas Taylor ho seems fundamentally "sound", will merely be a "Star" Who do I love? Susan of course!

    natalie, have you ever seen the papparazzi do to anyone what they did to Susan Boyle? Why did they do that, she never did anything to deserve it, she just wanted to sing. It was a brutal 7 weeks for her and she couldn't take it. Yes, she was in a clinic for 5 days, so that's hardly a breakdown, it's exactly like they said, exhaustion. When people get very little sleep it affects them terribly, both physically and mentally. What about all the young singers that drive drunk and are drug addicts? Will you not listen to their music because of that? Those are actions that they do by their own choosing. Susan can't help her disability and I"m sure it's not something she chose to have happen to her. She's doing the best that she can and trying to make something of her life despite a disability. Things need to be put into perspective here.

    It's sad to me to see this fighting between these two fan groups. Please, may I make a suggestion? Do not respond to provocative posts. Don't get into a contest. Both of these women are very talented and deserving. Personally, I enjoy Susan Boyle's music and musical interpretation more, but I'm really happy for Taylor, also. She's a classy young woman and a terrific songwriter. Neither of these women would say one bad word about the other - they wouldn't even engage in a simple comparison. As their fans, I think we should honor them by acting with the same class, kindness and dignity they've both shown over the past year.

    The question was "who are you pulling for?" Not "what is the most juvenile, trashy thing you can say about the other one?"

    Taylor Swift is a darling. She is always cheerful and happy. Susan Boyle is an old hag who looks like she wants to peel someone's skin off if she had the chance. Taylor handled the Kayle West thing like a professional. If it were Susan, she would have turned it into a freak show. You're wrong on that one.. Susan Boyle has had many more unusual events happen to her and she handles them perfectly. It may be that you do not like how she handles them. Taylor Swift is a lovely young artist. I hope Susan Boyle wins, but will be pleased if Taylor wins. Susan Boyle will be the overall and biggest winner for sure.

    Sorry but they do on the Susan Boyle fan site where no one can see them do it like a bunch of rednecks that they are. They wouldnt do it here because they want the media to think they're sweet like Susan Boyle. Canadain Bill whatever - you all sound the same. "Rednecks that they are" This just illustrates my point, name calling. I don't say that Taylor fans are ignorant baboons, I would say Taylor is a talented young lady but I feel that Miss Boyle's voice is more powerful and pleasant to my ears. I don't have to say ugly things about Taylor's face or what she did to get where she is to say I prefer Miss Boyle's voice. That is one thing that has made Susan Boyle so popular, she sings she does not try to sell her music packaging and gimmicks. I will just say this and drop it from here. I wish both artists the best. Not every one can do what they do. I certainly can't. I don't wish for one to prosper more than the other I just have a preference and I do not need to call Taylor names to express my opinion. I don't care what those on the fan site do, I choose to rise above childish name calling and rude language. Good night to you, and good luck Taylor Swift and Susan Boyle.

    It's a shame they both can't share top honors. Taylor is adorable and can sing. Susan, also adorable, fiesty, funny, and can sing you into ecstasy (no drug need be taken). Susan's dream touches everyone, men and women, young and seasoned, rich and financially challelnged. Susan is the 'miracle worker' who has touched hearts from around the world in her special way. The year 2009 belongs to Susan Boyly and she will continue to be a contender in 2010. If there has to be one winner for the top prize, hands down, it will be Susan, the Singing Sensation from Scotland.

    I still cannot fathom why a few very nasty people feel the only way they can comment on Susan Boyle is to make mean and degrading remarks. If you do not prefer her music, why not simply say so. I greatly prefer her music over Taylor Swift's but that does not give me any right to bad-mouth or make fun of Taylor. Shame on those of you who are so mean spirited.

    YOU, get over it. Susan is more talented that most of the young twits on the radio. Obviously, you are very young and don't appreciate REAL talent.

    Taylor is good and has earned all her accolades and has a decent voice -- but she is also "ordinary". She is the same as Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, etc. They are all of the same mold. Susan is a step above. She cannot be matched by Taylor with breath control and octave range. Susan knows how to deliver a song so the listener actually feels the song. Susan wins this hands down.

    There's a song on Susan's CD that was specially written for her. Susan thought it was going to be a smash hit but it wasn't. It's not played on the radio like Taylor's songs. Susan's CD is number one because her fans are buying them up. Not because its a great CD. I guess radio play doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. Sure Susan's fans are buying her music, and yes, it's because they like her music. You might not, but your taste is your taste and not everyone will agree with it. I'd think that it's Taylor's fans buying her music too. DUH!!

    Susan Boyle has accomplished so much in such a short period of time. This seems like a no brainer to me. Taylor Swift is nice but I'll take Susan Boyle any day.

    Susan Boyle is good but her album as nothing new to it, been done many many many times now. Grammys wont vote for it.Swift is new and she writes most of her songs while boyle cound only dream of doing as she needsa few more brain cells Mary, she's done pretty well for herself with those brain cells. Maybe you could do with a few more yourself so you'd realize you shouldn't knock someone with a disability. That remark showed ignorance.

    I have nothing against Taylor. But my vote is for Susan Boyle. If my youngest daughter was voting she would vote for Taylor hands down. Susan has come so far in a short amount of time. She deserves the spotlight for many years to come. It's well over due.

    Needs more brain cells? What a disgusting thing to say. Could you go from obsucrity to world wide fame with the grace Ms Boyle has? I seriously doubt it. She is humble, self-aware, modest and very talented. Susan is a dope. Get over it.

    I like both Susan and Taylor. Taylor seems to be a little sweetie and I wish all good things for her. She is so young and has a lot of years to soar. Susan, on the other hand, can reduce me to tears. There is something about her (besides her obvious talent) that touches my spirit like no other singer ever has. She makes me feel love and goodwill toward others...that's why I think there's a spiritual thing going on here. I may buy Taylor Swift because I DO like her sound. I will NEVER pass up an opportunity to hear Susan whenever I can.

    Susan is a genuinely talented singer - you feel every word she sings. No doubt, her next CD will featured more original songs written just for Susan. In just shy of one month, Susan's CD has gone platinum - Taylor's CD was released over a year ago. Again, no contest.

    Susan can actually sing without going flat all the time. I would listen to a million covers by her before listening to one original by Taylor. And at no time did Susan think anything she did would be a smash hit. Where on earth did you get that lame idea ? She said repeatedly I hope you like the album. That is all she ever said. And it hasn't even been one month. No contest.

    Susan is unique and has an extraordinary voice. Taylors' good but would just have been another "Trolley Dolly" Country Singer if she has appeared on BGT. She would have done well though - but Susan is in another league!

Most music on the radio today is not worth listening to.

    For natural talent, it would be Susan. She has rocketed to the top in less than a month from the release of her CD with her beautiful voice and no gimmicks. Go, SUSAN!

    As much as I like Susan, I have seen her video 100 times but her cd has 10 covers and just 2 or 3 I would ever listen to. So if I had to buy one I think it would be Taylors.

    I think Susan Boyle deserves to win because she has such a beautiful voice and a sweet personality. Her music is breathtakingly stunning and she did a beautiful thing by putting her dreams on hold to take care of her mother.

    Taylor Swift is a darling. She is always cheerful and happy. Susan Boyle is an old hag who looks like she wants to peel someone's skin off if she had the chance. Taylor handled the Kayle West thing like a professional. If it were Susan, she would have turned it into a freak show.

    While I like Taylor Swift and think she is a lovely and very talented young woman my highest acclaim would always be for Susan Boyle. I find her voice thrilling to listen to and I like her as she is just - one of us.

    They say Taylor is a breath of fresh air? Susan is more of the breath of fresh air. Breath of fresh air means "new" Taylor has been here a few yrs. Susan is the newer of the two. So SHE is the breathest of freshest air :) I dont need to say anymore. GO SUSAN!

    Susan for sure should win-look what she has accomplished in such a short time. I do not like Taylor Swift's voice either and that has nothing to do with Susan Boyle.

    Susan Boyle by far. She IS a breath of fresh air in today's world that focuses on looks rather than true talent. She has a fantastic voice that touches my very soul!

    Taylor Swift's CD has been out a full year, Ms Boyle's less than 2 months, so in that respect Ms Boyle is already the clear winner. Can she top Swift in the short time left? After all she's already accomplished it would not suprise me. I very much hope she does, she's earned it.
