Simon Cowell thinks that Susan Boyle debut album ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ will sell millions when it is released in November this year.

For a a time Susan future seemed uncertain after she was admited to The Priory clinic after coming second on Britain’s Got Talent earlier on this year.

Susan who had been the favourite to win after becoming a youtube sensation, came second to dance troupe Diversity in the final.

Speaking about susan , Simon told a US TV show: “I think at the point where she didn’t win, she was afraid everything would be taken away from her and she was going to go back to that little house. She didn’t want to go back to that life.”

“After all the dust settled, she was happy. She is stunning on record. She’s going to sell millions of records this year.”

Amanda Holden – I predicted Boyle’s breakdown

Amanda Holden has claimed that she predicted Susan Boyle’s would have a breakdown days before it occurred even though she earlier stated ‘Susan Boyle has no underlying mental issues’

Susan Boyle was checked into The Priory rehab clinic after coming second to Diversity in the show’s final.  The shows producers later confirmed that she was “exhausted and emotionally drained”.

Reflecting on the whole event , Holden told the Daily Star: “I was worried Susan wouldn’t be able to handle it. Then, a week later she checked into The Priory. I was like Mystic Mandy.”

Susan Boyle eventually left the after five days and was instantly snapped up by Simon Cowell‘s record label. She is now currently working on her debut album.

Simon Cowell recently stated  that Susan’s breakdown came because she “didn’t know how to cope with losing”.

Susan’s brother  Gerry has agreed with the music mogul’s view, commenting: “Susan doesn’t take rejection very well. That’s not to say she doesn’t bounce back, she does. It’s a lack of confidence and a case of getting overworked up. With Britain’s Got Talent, it all just became too much.”

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”.

Susan Boyle amazes Aberdeen

Susan Boyle proved to fans at the AECC in Aberdeen that she was a singing phenomenon, as she performed in the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

The singer earned a standing ovation as she belted out the hits Memory and I Dreamed a Dream.

The air was filled with anticipation as the audience waited to see if Susan – nicknamed SuBo – would appear.

Doubts had surrounded Susan Boyle’s appearance in Aberdeen after she missed a number of dates of the Britain’s Got Talent tour to rest.

But Susan, from Blackburn, thrilled thousands of fans by showing off the voice that shot her to global stardom.

Susan Boyle wasn’t the only star of the show as the 10 finalists from the Britain’s Got Talent put on a spectacular show.

Winning dance troupe Diversity got the crowd clapping with their energetic and impressive routines.

Twelve-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi also stunned fans as he sang love songs including the Michael Jackson hit Who’s Loving You.

And the audience were speechless as saxophonist Julian Smith played the tune All By Myself.

Other Britain’s Got Talent acts included 10-year-old Hollie Steel who confidently showed off her vocal range.

An act which sent the audience into fits of laughter was comedy duo Stavros Flatley.

The pair got the crowd on their feet as they ran across the stage in red jackets and blond wigs, while pulling comical faces.

And later the father-and-son duo made a hilarious appearance as they joined dance troupe Flawless in an upbeat number.

The girls in the audience went crazy for Shaun Smith, who sang the classic U2 hit With or Without You.

Screams filled the arena as the 17-year-old wooed his female fans in a tight unbuttoned white shirt and jeans.

Grandfather and granddaughter duo 2 Grand entertained younger members of the audience as they performed a hit from the children’s film Aladdin.

Dancer 11-year-old Aidan Davis also excited the crowd with his tight and effortless moves.

And the dance turns kept coming as the crowd enjoyed a special guest appearance by last year’s winner George Sampson.

Presenter of the Britain’s Got More Talent show Stephen Mulhern entertained with gags and surprises as he hosted the live show.

And the night was complete with an appearance by DJ Talent.

Dermot O’Leary has said that Susan Boyle will appear on the next series of The X Factor.

According to The Sun, programme bosses want the Britain’s Got Talent runner-up to mentor finalists in the over-25 group and perform alongside the singers.

O’Leary said: “Who she’s going to duet with – that’s the fun part.”

Regarding Boyle’s appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, he continued: “She was brilliant. I think finishing second was probably the best thing that could have happened to her.”

O’Leary added that The X Factor would have to improve if it is to beat the 19.2 million viewers recorded during the final of its reality talent competitor.

“We peaked at 13 million last year so we’ve got to get our act together. I’m sure that I will bump into Piers Morgan who is bound to remind me about it,” he said.

Gordon Brown Britain’s Got Talent is really interesting

Gordon Brown has said that Britain’s Got Talent is an “interesting” programme that could hint at the future of the country.

The Prime Minister told The Guardian that the show gives people with talent an opportunity to benefit from their qualities.

Brown said: “I think Britain’s Got Talent is really interesting. What annoyed me when I was at school was that there were lots of people with obvious ability who could’ve benefited from opportunities and were told: ‘It’s not for people like you.’

“And now they’ve got more open ways of coming forward. Surely the future for our country is more that Britain has got talent than it is that Britain is a broken society.”

He suggested that Simon Cowell is liked by people because of his honesty as a judge of talent.

The Prime Minister has publicly praised this year’s winners Diversity and sent a congratulatory letter to Alexandra Burke when she won last year’s X Factor.

Simon Cowell Boyle could not cope with losing

Simon Cowell has admitted that he made errors in judgement over his handling of Susan Boyle.

The Britain’s Got Talent singer was admitted into the Priory clinic earlier this month after suffering from exhaustion following losing out to Diversity in the talent show’s final.

He told The Mirror: “I suddenly realised she didn’t know how to cope with losing. We didn’t handle it well.

“At the crucial point in the final, I looked at her face and thought, ‘Christ, she doesn’t know how to deal with not winning’. It was a bad moment.”

Boyle cancelled a fourth performance of the reality series’s live concerts in Cardiff last night.

Earlier this week, Cowell’s fellow judge Piers Morgan said that she was “mentally fine” and further accused the media of hypocrisy.

Susan Boyle’s comeback impresses fans

I am back of my holiday and time for a catch up 🙂

Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle will charge £8,000 per minute at a series of corporate gigs this summer, a report claims.

According to the News Of The World, the show’s runner-up is being booked to perform 12-minute sets for clients at a price of £100,000.

A source told the newspaper: “She’s the biggest star to have come out of Britain’s Got Talent, so her price to sing reflects that.”

Boyle has already been tipped to become a ‘global superstar’ over the next year, despite losing out to dance troupe Diversity in the competition’s final last month.

The 48-year-old singer recently checked out of the Priory clinic after receiving treatment for exhaustion and later made a well-received comeback on the first night of the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

Boyle’s corporate bookings are reportedly being handled by Industry Music Group agent Andrew Pountain, who is also working with the programme’s other finalists
