OTRC: Susan Boyle botches performance on 'The View' when her voice cracks

Susan Boyle performs on ABC talk show 'The View' on Nov. 30, 2010.
Susan Boyle recently performed the Christmas song "O Holy Night" on the ABC daytime talk show "The View" but was unable to hit the high notes and cited a "frog" in her throat.

Cohosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd quickly rushed to the stage and began interviewing the 49-year-old, who became a YouTube sensation due to her "Britain's Got Talent" audition in 2009.

"There is something about your voice that just carries people to a different place," Goldberg said. "It's such a nice thing because it's so rare."

Last month, Boyle topped the U.S. Billboard 200 chart with her second album, "The Gift". The record contains Christmas carols such as "O Holy Night" and covers of Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over", Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Lou Reed's "Perfect Day".

The Scottish church volunteer's debut album, "I Dreamed a Dream," named after the "Les Miserables" musical track she sang during her the "Britain's Got Talent" audition that made her a viral hit, also topped the chart last year and spent six weeks in the No. 1 position.

Rock singer Lou Reed recently Susan Boyle film a music video for her rendition of his 1972 hit "Perfect Day" after she was initially denied permission to cover the song.
