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.

Susan Boyle won’t manage entire Britain’s Got Talent live tour

Susan Boyle will reportedly only take part in a number of shows on the Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

The 48-year-old, who was admitted into the Priory clinic suffering from exhaustion after losing out to Diversity in the ITV1 show final, is said to be conserving her energy to record an album.

Boyle is currently in London where rehearsals for the 23-date live show are taking place, however organisers are yet to confirm whether she will perform on the opening night in Birmingham on Friday.

“Everything depends on Susan and how she feels. We have made it clear that we are in her hands and we just want to make sure that she is fit and well,” a source told The Sun.

“At the moment it looks like Susan will join the rest of the BGT finalists on stage on some of the dates, but she won’t do the entire tour. The details are still being worked out.

“Susan is most excited about starting work on her album and we have a responsibility to make sure she is cared for and is happy and well.”

Boyle’s brother Gerry recently dismissed speculation that the talent show star had a learning difficulty.

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.”

Katy Brand has criticised Amanda Holden

Katy Brand has criticised Amanda Holden for making “patronising” comments about Susan Boyle’s appearance.
Holden, 38, recently vowed to veto plans to give the Britain’s Got Talent star a makeover, insisting that a new look would jeopardise her unique appeal.
Speaking earlier this month, the show’s judge claimed: “She needs to stay exactly as she is because that’s the reason we love her. She just looks like anybody who could live on your street. The minute we turn her into a glamour puss is when it’s spoiled.”
However, appearing on last night’s episode of Have I Got News For You, comedienne Brand admitted that she was unimpressed by Holden’s remarks.
“I think Amanda Holden should stop patronising other women and let her do whatever she wants to do,” Brand explained.
Commenting on Boyle’s audition, the Big Ass Show star said: “When she walked out on-stage, all of the judges treated her like there was no way she could have any talent and they all laughed at her because of the way she looked.
“Then she started singing and they all did that prime-time jaw-dropping thing that they like to do.”
Boyle recently ignored Holden’s comments and went ahead with plans for a new look.

Susan urged not to have a make over

Amanda Holden, a judge on Britain’s Got Talent who said it was a privilage listening to Susan Boyle has warned that giving the surprise sensation a Hollywood make over would spoil everything.

She needs to stay exactly as she is because that’s the reason we love her. She just looks like anybody who could live on your street. The minute we turn her into a glamourpuss is when it’s spoilt. That can perhaps come later when she has signed the album deal and conquered America. For now we’ll keep her exactly as she is because that’s why we’ve all fallen in love with her. I think it’s the underdog thing.

Amanda said that fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell wanted to give Susan Boyle whiter teeth and a new hairstyle.

Susan Boyle Makeover

Susan Boyle MakeoverSusan Boyle MakeoverOnce people stopped marveling at Susan Boyle’s voice, they started talking about her look, including her caterpillar-like eyebrows. Let the makeover debate begin.

This past week, Boyle won over the  judges on “Britain’s Got Talent” and millions of viewers who have watched her performance via the Internet.

“I won’t let Simon Cowell take her to his dentist, and I certainly won’t let her near his hairdresser,” ” Britain’s Got Talent” judge Amanda Holden told the UK Mirror.

The matronly 48-year-old “needs to stay exactly as she is because that’s the reason we love her,” said Holden, who happens to be a flaxen-haired beauty with a flawless complexion. “She just looks like anybody who could live on your street.

“The minute we turn her into a glamor-puss is when it’s spoiled,” she says.
