I feel this album performed well with not a lot of promotion in the US and did as well as or better than many other established artists.
Have to agree - aside from a week in Australia, promotion was negligible, especially when compared with Buble/Bieber who were everywhere constantly it seemed.
The next step for this album will be the stage production musical, 'I Dreamed A Dream' starring Elaine C. Smith, with Susan Boyle appearing for the finale of each (or most) shows for the first 11 weeks. The musical will feature many of Susan's songs.
