Susan Boyle to defy pressure, fight it out in Britain’s Got Talent finalMay 30th, 2009 - 12:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 30 (ANI): Susan Boyle is determined to beat the pressure and perform in the finals of Britain’s Got Talent, insisting she would not let go of her dream to bag the title.
Susan had been struggling to handle the attention after turning into an overnight celebrity with her jaw-dropping performance of the song ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ on the talent show, followed by her stunning version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats song Memory in the semi-finals.
Judge Piers Morgan had revealed the singing sensation, 48, had thought of packing her bags and quitting the show following excessive media criticism.
But the Scottish church singer is set to defy the pressure and put up a fierce battle to bring home the title and the 100,000-pound prize money.
“This is my moment, it’s all that I’ve dreamed of,” the Sun quoted Susan as saying.
She added: “I want nothing more than to stay and sing in the final. I’ve spent weeks rehearsing, it’s all I’ve been thinking about. I’m not going to throw away my big chance now.”
Judge Amanda Holden also backed Susan, who has won fans all over the world including US President Barack Obama and Hollywood couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
Amanda said: “She did have her bags packed at one stage, because she was so sad and upset. She’s under a lot of pressure.”
But she added: “Susan will definitely be in the final and she’ll do a great job.”
Susan, the red-hot favourite to win the show, gathered a record 200million hits on YouTube, has been interviewed by US chat queen Oprah Winfrey, had name checks on cartoon shows The Simpsons and South Park, been invited to meet Obama and has even had a doll modelled after her. (ANI)
