Susan Boyle tells The Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday that she doesn't think she'll win Britain's Got Talent, the singing competition which provided her the platform to become an overnight household name.

The 48-year-old, whose riveting rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables garnered 100 million YouTube hits in a matter of weeks, talked to the show via satellite from her home in Blackburn, Scotland.

She told Winfrey she did not think she could outdo her talented rivals on the show. She joked her beloved cat, Pebbles, would be a bigger star that she is once given the same international exposure.

She told Winfrey that, despite her spinster lifestyle, she does not view herself as lonely.

"Everyone has been so nice," Boyle said, according to The Daily Star. "I've got millions of new friends now."

The special episode, titled The World's Got Talent, will also feature Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell; it is expected to draw more than 10 million viewers when it airs Monday. (Photo: Sipa Press/Fame Pictures)
