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.

Mariah Carey Susan Boyle

Mariah Carey Feels Sorry For Su-Bo

Susan Boyle can add pop superstar Mariah Carey to her list of famous friends after the diva (Mariah, not Su-Bo) insisted she’s not surprised the Scottish singing sensation is freaked out by her sudden rise to stardom.

Boyle became an international star overnight when she showed off her singing skills on U.K. TV show Britain’s Got Talent, but the instant interest became too much for the spinster to handle – she checked into a mental health clinic after her final appearance on the show.

Carey, who herself suffered a physical and emotional breakdown in 2001, is far from surprised. She says, “I feel bad for her… We build people up so quickly now that of course it’s going to freak some people out. It’s difficult. It’s got to be tough.”

Susan Boyle moved to safe house

Can Susan make it to meet the Queen?

Can Susan make it to meet the Queen?

Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle has been moved to a “safe house” as she prepares for Saturday’s final.

One judge, Piers Morgan, confirmed that she had become so “distraught” at negative media headlines this week that she almost quit the ITV show.

He said the singer from West Lothian was now relaxing with one of her closest friends from Scotland.

A former psychologist for Big Brother said she should be withdrawn from the contest to protect her mental health.

The 48-year-old church volunteer from Blackburn became an international sensation after her performances attracted millions of hits on video sharing websites.

But she is reported to be feeling the pressure, apparently losing her temper with tabloid reporters in the lobby of a hotel in North London.      If Britain’s Got Talent was an experiment in any university we would have to draw a line on that experiment
Professor David Wilson

Speaking on BBC Radio, Mr Morgan said he did not believe she would quit the show.

“She had a rocky moment a couple of days ago when she woke up and saw some very negative headlines and suddenly felt the pressure of world attention,” he said.

“You have to remember this is someone who has gone from complete anonymity to global stardom in the space of six weeks.

“It’s understandable. People should give her a bit of slack. She’s 24 hours from the biggest day of her life and she’s starting to feel the heat.”

The former tabloid editor said Ms Boyle had been reduced to tears several times during the week.

Psychological help

He said psychological and medical help was available to contestants, although he could not say if she had asked for such assistance.

“She is very distraught, to the extent where she packed her bags and was going to leave the show,” he said.

“She just didn’t see the point of continuing if every time she picked up the newspapers there was another avalanche of abuse.”

Responding to his comments, Professor David Wilson, a former psychologist for reality TV show Big Brother, said Ms Boyle should be stopped from going into the final.

He said: “I am amazed by the honesty he showed in revealing the depth of how distraught Susan Boyle is.

“If Britain’s Got Talent was an experiment in any university we would have to draw a line on that experiment because ethically we would be putting the person at the heart of that experiment through emotional turmoil.

“It’s a duty of care, it’s about a moral responsibility. The harrowing week that Piers was describing hasn’t been created by the press. The harrowing week has been created by the programme.”
