It wasn’t looking good but in the end Susan Boyle
was well enough to appear at Birmingingham’s Arena last night for the first show in the Britain’s Got Talent
Despite having been treated for exhaustion at The Priory
, the 48-year-old from West Lothian sang I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables and Memory from Cats.
Despite losing out to Diversity in the ITV talent contest, Simon Cowell
has reassured the eccentric Scot that she still has the world at her feet.
‘Our only priority is Susan
’s recovery,’ says a spokeswoman for Sony BMG
. ‘What she does next is entirely up to her.
‘When she feels ready to carry on, she will sit down with Simon and his team and decide the path she will take.’
Simon, 49, is predicting big things for Susan.
‘She’s going to have potentially huge album sales, particularly in America,’ his publicist Max Clifford tells the Daily Record. ‘Americans absolutely love her.
‘Everyone wants her on their show singing. That gives her massive potential and Simon will make sure she has the best songs and the best productions.’
