"Britain's Got Talent" sensation Susan Boyle has unwittingly sparked a massive makeover debate. Her bushy brows, lack of makeup, wild hair and sudden rise to superstardom make Boyle seem ripe for a makeover, but these factors are exactly why judge Amanda Holden thinks Susan Boyle should steer clear of a makeover.

Susan Boyle "needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her," said Holden to the UK Mirror. "The minute we turn her into a glamor-puss is when it's spoiled," she says.

For her part, Susan Boyle doesn't seem to want a makeover either. During an appearance on Larry King's talk show, she responded to his burning makeover question with, "Why should I? Why should I change? Particularly my identity."

Boyle and Holden haven't put out the fire for a Susan Boyle makeover, however. In response to a request from "Extra," Daily Makeover conducted a virtual makeover for Susan Boyle.
