Simon Cowell want to work with Susan Boyle

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.

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.

Piers Morgan has vowed to kiss Susan Boyle live on air when the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals begin.

Scottish singer Boyle claimed that she had never been kissed when she auditioned for the ITV1 reality series earlier this year.

The 48-year-old later became a YouTube phenomenon after her audition aired in April – and she remains the bookies’ favourite to win the competition.

Speaking to the Daily Star, show judge Morgan explained: “After Susan auditioned for the show and said she’d never been kissed, I did say that I would break her ‘kissing duck’. That offer still stands.

“I have not seen her since the auditions. So when we meet again, if Susan asks for a kiss, I’ll do it – on TV.”

Britain’s Got Talent continues at 8.20pm tonight on ITV1.
