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.”

Sir Michael Grade has admitted that ITV did make mistakes in their handling of Britain’s Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle.

Susan became a worldwide sensation almost overnight, but was later admitted to the Priory with exhaustion after failing to win the show.

Speaking to BBC , the ITV executive chairman said: “Nobody has ever been that famous so quickly in that short space of time, within days, within hours of the show.

“She threw herself into it all and probably didn’t pace herself. I mean, we didn’t pace her well enough. There were American news networks wanting interviews with her, Japanese networks wanting interviews with her and that demand, it was pretty exhausting.

“If you were an established star used to dealing with it, you would have found it pretty exhausting, so it was a difficult time for her dealing with all this stuff.

“But it was just an extraordinary situation and why shouldn’t she enjoy her success? She’s waited all her life.”

Show judge Simon Cowell recently recognised that he had made errors in his treatment of Susan Boyle.

Simon Cowell want to work with Susan Boyle

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.”

Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle has recorded her first track, which has already been praised by the toughest critic on television Simon Cowell.

“I’ve cut one track with her and she sounds fantastic on record. She’s so good, the album is not just going to be showtunes. We’re going to take our time with this,” the Sun quoted Cowell as saying.

When Boyle had first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, she said that she aspired to become a musical theatre singer “as successful as” Elaine Paige.

The 48-year-old had performed a rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables in the first round of the third series of Britain’s Got Talent, which was watched by over 10 million viewers when it aired on 11 April 2009.

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.”

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.

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.
