British singer Susan Boyle poses for photographers upon arriving at Narita International Airport in Narita, east of Tokyo, Japan yesterday.

Susan Boyle, the Scottish spinster whose talent show performance catapulted her to global stardom, arrived in Japan yesterday to perform on a New Year's Eve music gala watched by millions.
Boyle waved cheerfully to fans as she was escorted through Narita airport east of Tokyo, declining a request by television networks to give an impromptu song on the spot.
She is due to appear on Japan's best-known music extravaganza, public broadcaster NHK's year-end "Kohaku Uta Gassen," which literally means "Red and White Song Battle" and has been running since 1951.
The plain, single, unemployed 48-year-old's soaring voice was discovered in April when she stunned judges on the "Britain's Got Talent" television show with her performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Miserables."
