Susan has revealed that she decided to have a makeover after seeing herself on television.

She explained that she was very unhappy about being described as the “Hairy Angel” by the press.

“I was fed up with being called that,” she explained to the Daily Mail. “I didn’t know what I looked like on television until I saw myself on Britain’s Got Talent. I saw this wee wifey with the mad hairdo and the bushy eyebrows and said, ‘Hmm, not really telegenic’.

“So I decided to spruce myself up a bit. When I look in the mirror now, I see this sophisticated lady. I’m still a bit like that wee wifey inside, but more refined in some ways. Would you want to look like the Hairy Angel? I don’t think so.”

pressure cooker

Susan Boyle  felt like she was in a pressure cooker during Britain’s Got Talent.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Susan  explained that she had not been prepared for all the media attention and ended up being admitted to The Priory following the show’s final.

“Everything had built up and I was exhausted,” she said. “There were a lot of press people outside my door, a lot of television people, a lot of people who wanted a piece of me. I thought, ‘God, what’s happening here? I’m a reasonable singer but I never expected that’.

“It got to the stage where I couldn’t even go outside because the media – American television crews too – surrounded the house. I had to draw my blinds, and even after that they started hammering on my door.

“I was quite frightened. I felt very vulnerable, because I was living on my own. There were phonecalls 24 hours a day. They kept me awake for three weeks, until I changed my number. It was just constant. I don’t know anybody else from a talent show who got that.

“It was like being inside a giant pressure cooker, where the lid bubbles up and bubbles up and soon the pressure cooker goes.”

Boyle added that the pressure continued to increase as the show went on, explaining: “It was totally out of control, like a steamroller. It just got bigger and bigger and bigger, until eventually it can flatten you.”

Susan who had  became unwell after finishing in second place due to the enormous pressure, said she had been determined to perform

“I just went through to the dressing room and I don’t know what was wrong,” she said. “I couldn’t even see properly. I hadn’t eaten for about a week, hadn’t slept properly. It was like looking at everything through a glass, and the feeling was one of extreme exhaustion that manifested itself in firing off at everyone.

“It was like the dream had gone pop – a baby that’s had the sweeties taken away. I was just being childish. I so desperately wanted to make a record. I wanted to prove myself a bit more, but maybe I was pushing myself a bit too hard. I felt I’d got so close.

“I don’t remember much else. I just know someone sent for an ambulance and I went to The Priory. I needed to sleep. I was too tired to even think straight. I’m much stronger now, though.”

Susan Boyle is to appear on the The X Factor on the 22 of November and will sing her debut single ‘Wild Horses’
Susan’s appearance is also timed to help the hit ITV show X Factor win the ratings war against the  BBC One rival Strictly Come Dancing
“We’re going all out to annihilate Strictly this year,” a source said. “These big signings will really help us.
“Simon Cowell is very excited about Susan coming back but wants to make sure she excels. It’s going to be nerve-racking for her being at the very same place where she lost Britain’s Got Talent. The pressure can get to her and he’s decided not to sign another big-name act for that night so everything is focused around her.”
It was also confirmed yesterday that Susan  will be performing on the hit US show Dancing With The Stars.

Michael Buble on Susan Boyle

Michael Bublé has admitted that orignally he did not see what all the fuss and media hype was about regarding Susan Boyle.

Bublé explained that he would now love to work along side Susan, who he also described as “lovely”.

“I didn’t understand Susan Boyle,” he told the Daily Express. “I was cynical and critical because I had never seen her in that first show where she comes up and says, ‘I want to be a singer’ and the audience looks at her and says, ‘Oh please!’ I got goosebumps.

“I’m going to go when this record comes out and buy 20 copies… because what a beautiful story of an underdog. It gives me faith in the human condition that we still have that kind of feeling that we actually want the good guy to win.

“It killed me. It really is a beautiful, beautiful story.”

Bublé was also full of praised for Susan Boyle’s success after she shot to fame on reality show Britain‘s Got Talent.

“It’s proof that they can be more than just a flash in the pan,” he said.
