Susan Boyle has confirmed that she wants to stay in the public eye following her success on Britain’s Got Talent.

The 48-year-old star is currently working on her debut album after finishing in second place on the ITV1 talent show Britain’s Got Talent in May.

Susan Boyle’s original audition for the programme became a YouTube sensation earlier this year, but her achievements were later marred by reports of an emotional breakdown due to the pressures of fame.

Speaking about her experiences for NBC News, the star revealed: “It’s just been unbelievable – it’s indescribable. Being plucked from obscurity is a bit like going on a long journey, really – you don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know how it’s going to end.”

She added: “I don’t want it to end. It’s just really good.”

Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell recently promised that Boyle’s debut single would be “fantastic”.

Simon Cowell insists Britain’s Got Talent acts are a surprise

Piers Morgan has said that Britain’s Got Talent judges are not given any prior information about auditionees on the show.

During the last series, critics had suggested that some elements of the programme had been scripted or pre-planned, a claim denied by contestants and producers.

Morgan told The Futon Critic: “Simon Cowell, the creator of the Got Talent format, he’s absolutely adamant we should never have any warning from the producers about what is going to come on stage in terms of their ability because, you know, sometimes we might get told their name and that’s about it.

“What Simon believes and I think he’s absolutely right is that if you have prior warning that someone’s going to be great then you don’t act surprised. I mean, why would you, you know?”

He added: “If we knew Susan Boyle had a voice like an angel we wouldn’t have been pulling all those faces and being rather condescending towards her.

“We would have been thinking, well let’s give her a couple of seconds to sing and then we’ll all know she’s great.”

Slipknot star ‘obsessed’ with Susan Boyle

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has admitted that he is obsessed with Susan Boyle.

The rock star described Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent audition as “incredible” and admitted that he was mesmerised when he first saw it.

“Susan Boyle is incredible. Somebody told me about the show and I said, ‘I have got to see this – ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, are you kidding me?'” Contactmusic quotes Taylor as saying.

“I put it on and she was fantastic. The people on that panel were in tears! When Susan leans into it, she’s great.”

Taylor, who hails from Des Moines, Iowa, added that recent press focus on Boyle’s health problems was unnecessary.

“She’s a little bit crazy, but aren’t we all? Anyone who’s worth their salt is a little bit bent out of shape,” he said.

Slipknot released their fourth studio album All Hope Is Gone in August 2008.

Paul Potts not competing with Susan Boyle

Paul Potts has insisted that he does not regard Susan Boyle as a rival following her recent success.

Boyle has secured a strong international fanbase since making her debut on Britain’s Got Talent in April, mirroring Potts’s own experience on the ITV1 programme’s first series in 2007.

The Scottish singer is expected to soon join Potts on Simon Cowell’s record label, however the show’s original winner does not believe that they are in competition.

Speaking to Seven magazine, he explained: “We sing different styles of music. And one’s a male voice and one’s a female voice, and that makes a difference.”

Potts also revealed that he has become more ambitious since making his TV debut two years ago.

He commented: “It’s good to get a day off occasionally. But when you’re in the market, you think: ‘What could I be doing with today to become even more successful?’ You think: ‘Just get me some work. Get me a performance on a channel’. You don’t get too many opportunities and you have to grab each one, because I have to be a success if I’m going to continue to do this.”

Potts released his second album Passione earlier this month.
