Simon Cowell has claimed that Susan Boyle’s debut album will surprise many listeners.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge insisted that the LP will not include throwaway “show tunes” and claimed that the Scottish singer was “blown away” by some of the tracks they picked to record.

“We’re not going to throw out some souvenir album of show tunes which everyone expects,” he told Extra.

“We went through about 350 to 400 songs to choose from. She was blown away by some of the song choices… She’s going to surprise a lot of people with this record.”

Boyle finished runner-up on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, behind dance troupe Diversity.

Simon Cowell has claimed that Britain’s Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle sounds “fantastic” on her recently-recorded debut track.

The Scottish singer, who finished runner-up in the ITV reality show, is reported to have completed her first song during a brief break from the ongoing live tour.

Speaking to People, he said: “She sounds fantastic on the record. She’s so good, the album is not going to be show tunes. We’re going to take our time with this.”

It is understood that the 48-year-old star, who was hospitalised for exhaustion earlier this year, also visited the Sony Music headquarters in London for a meeting with executives last week.

An insider has claimed that Boyle was told that she could walk away from the project at any time, adding: “There’s no pressure on her to do this at all.”

Susan Boyle has been offered the opportunity to perform on America’s Got Talent.

The 48-year-old Scottish singer will appear on the US version of the talent show as long as she is “well enough”, according to judge Piers Morgan.

“If she’s up for it and she is well enough, our feeling is she probably will [appear],” he said. “Absolutely!”

America’s Got Talent, which is judged by Morgan, David Hasselhoff and Sharon Osbourne, begins on NBC on June 23.

“Susan singing live to 25 million Americans? That would be great!” added Morgan.

Boyle’s brother John has previously revealed that 95% of the reality TV star’s fan-mail comes from America.

Susan Boyle’s comeback

Susan Boyle returned to the stage last night for her first public performance since she checked out of the Priory clinic.

The Scottish singer reportedly wowed fans with renditions of Les Miserables number ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘Memory’ from Cats on the first night of the Britain’s Got Talent live tour in Birmingham.

Boyle’s involvement in the project was thrown into doubt after she checked in to the Priory with exhaustion earlier this month.

However, it was later suggested that Boyle would go ahead with the live gigs after Simon Cowell boosted the star’s confidence by predicting a bright future for her.

The 48-year-old singer is believed to have received a standing ovation from fans following last night’s set at the Birmingham National Indoor Arena. The concert also featured show winners Diversity and the programme’s other finalists.

One crowd member told the Daily Mail: “Everyone was wondering how Susan was going to do. But she looked confident and her voice sounded amazing. She didn’t look like someone who was in the Priory just a week ago.”

Boyle is expected to start working on a West End-themed album after the 23-date jaunt finishes later this month.

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 no regrets over Boyle

Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan has insisted that the show’s producers did all they could to protect Susan Boyle.

The ITV1 programme was accused of exploitation after Boyle checked in to The Priory clinic with exhaustion last week.

Reports also claimed that the Scottish singer had suffered a breakdown after facing press criticism and losing out to dance troupe Diversity in the live final.

Writing in The Mail On Sunday, Morgan explained: “I don’t blame the papers, TV and radio for pursuing the story, or even how they pursued it. But I do find some of their shameless finger-pointing faintly ridiculous.

“I cannot think of a single thing more that anyone could have done for Susan. Or a single rule change that could be made to protect future contestants from dealing with the unique problems of experiencing the unprecedented worldwide attention she has had.

“Susan wanted to be on this show, has no regrets about doing it, is well on the road to a full recovery already and came out of The Priory last week after just a few days.

“Now she wishes to pursue her dream of making an album, a disc that I would guess might sell somewhere north of ten million copies given her astounding popularity in America, making her the biggest selling female artist of the next 12 months.”

Boyle was recently tipped to make a comeback on the Britain’s Got Talent live tour following her recovery.

Susan Boyle tipped for comeback at Britain’s Got Talent tour

Britain’s Got Talent chiefs are hoping that Susan Boyle will take part in the programme’s live tour, according to a report.

The Scottish singer’s involvement in the shows was thrown into doubt after she checked in to The Priory clinic with exhaustion earlier this week.

Boyle finally left the facility yesterday and is now said to be making plans for her future in the music industry.

A source told The Mirror: “I would be very surprised if she didn’t do [the tour].”

Boyle reportedly felt “emotionally drained” after losing out to dance troupe Diversity in the show’s live final last weekend.

The insider added: “I think her breakdown was because she didn’t win and didn’t understand the industry. She thought her career was over. But now she has been told that she still has a shot at success – and she’s raring to go. The decision’s been very much put in her hands. She’s under no pressure.”

The Britain’s Got Talent tour begins in Birmingham on June 12.
