pressure cooker

Susan Boyle  felt like she was in a pressure cooker during Britain’s Got Talent.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Susan  explained that she had not been prepared for all the media attention and ended up being admitted to The Priory following the show’s final.

“Everything had built up and I was exhausted,” she said. “There were a lot of press people outside my door, a lot of television people, a lot of people who wanted a piece of me. I thought, ‘God, what’s happening here? I’m a reasonable singer but I never expected that’.

“It got to the stage where I couldn’t even go outside because the media – American television crews too – surrounded the house. I had to draw my blinds, and even after that they started hammering on my door.

“I was quite frightened. I felt very vulnerable, because I was living on my own. There were phonecalls 24 hours a day. They kept me awake for three weeks, until I changed my number. It was just constant. I don’t know anybody else from a talent show who got that.

“It was like being inside a giant pressure cooker, where the lid bubbles up and bubbles up and soon the pressure cooker goes.”

Boyle added that the pressure continued to increase as the show went on, explaining: “It was totally out of control, like a steamroller. It just got bigger and bigger and bigger, until eventually it can flatten you.”

Susan who had  became unwell after finishing in second place due to the enormous pressure, said she had been determined to perform

“I just went through to the dressing room and I don’t know what was wrong,” she said. “I couldn’t even see properly. I hadn’t eaten for about a week, hadn’t slept properly. It was like looking at everything through a glass, and the feeling was one of extreme exhaustion that manifested itself in firing off at everyone.

“It was like the dream had gone pop – a baby that’s had the sweeties taken away. I was just being childish. I so desperately wanted to make a record. I wanted to prove myself a bit more, but maybe I was pushing myself a bit too hard. I felt I’d got so close.

“I don’t remember much else. I just know someone sent for an ambulance and I went to The Priory. I needed to sleep. I was too tired to even think straight. I’m much stronger now, though.”

Susan Boyle has confirmed that she wants to stay in the public eye following her success on Britain’s Got Talent.

The 48-year-old star is currently working on her debut album after finishing in second place on the ITV1 talent show Britain’s Got Talent in May.

Susan Boyle’s original audition for the programme became a YouTube sensation earlier this year, but her achievements were later marred by reports of an emotional breakdown due to the pressures of fame.

Speaking about her experiences for NBC News, the star revealed: “It’s just been unbelievable – it’s indescribable. Being plucked from obscurity is a bit like going on a long journey, really – you don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know how it’s going to end.”

She added: “I don’t want it to end. It’s just really good.”

Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell recently promised that Boyle’s debut single would be “fantastic”.

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.

Simon Cowell Boyle could not cope with losing

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.

Piers Morgan: ‘Susan Boyle is fine’

Susan Boyle Biggest star on planet

Piers Morgan has said that Susan Boyle is “mentally fine” and will play a number of dates on the ongoing Britain’s Got Talent live tour.

Ahead of Boyle’s performance last night in Glasgow, Morgan told BBC HARDtalk that it was the attention of the media and not the reality talent show that had resulted in the singer’s admission to The Priory.

Morgan said: “She did three great shows and is now having a rest and she’ll be back for a few more shows. Susan’s fine.

“Susan Boyle’s fine. She has always been, in my view, mentally fine. The problems she found difficult as anybody would was this incredible worldwide attention.”

He added: “What I find even more hypocritical is that the broadcast media, and broadsheet media as well, they want to cover this story and the best way of covering it and to get the acres of publicity that you want for ratings is to somehow try and turn it into something more sinister than it was.”

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 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.
