Cowell admits Boyle’s rise to fame could have been handled differentlyJune 21st, 2009 - 3:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 21 (ANI): Britain’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell has confessed that Susan Boyle’s phenomenal rise to fame and her subsequent emotional breakdowns could have been handled differently.
The show judge said show organisers could have been more careful in addressing Susan’s problems after she became an overnight star with her jaw dropping performance of her audition song.
“Looking back on it all, it has become clear to me that we didn’t handle the situation with Susan as well as we could have,” the Scotsman quoted him as saying.
“Yet, to be honest, I don’t know that I could have done it any differently,” he added.
Simon’s comments came as the show’s runner-up missed more live BGT concerts.
Susan sparked health concerns after a four-day stint at a rehab clinic following exhaustion after facing defeat in the show’s finals.
The 48-year-old later returned onstage and has been wooing fans with her live performances. (ANI)
