Susan Boyle, who skyrocketed to worldwide fame with her impressive and ubiquitous performance on Britain’s Got Talent, seemed like a shoe-in for first place in the competition. Alas, it wasn’t to be.
Boyle, the frumpy, quiet Scottish woman known for her prestigious pipes, was awarded second place on the reality show juggernaut today. First place went to some group called “Diversity”. Man, I hope Diversity is ready for some angry glares on the street. Boyle was something like a national hero over in Britain and was quite a sensation here in the states as well.
Recently, controversy had struck the show with reports of Boyle becoming angry and cursing out reporters. As well, rumor had it that Susan was thinking of leaving the show due to the immense amount of pressure from the media. I’m sure it couldn’t have been easy going from complete unknown to global superstar. Perhaps the voters were doing her a favor by sending her home. Now she can get back to living her perfectly normal life.
Oh, who am I kidding? Her life will continue to be a circus. This is the British media we’re talking about here.
