    Oooh dear, poor Susan has had a rough week. She has got into the finals (of course) of Britain's Got Talent, being the top voted act on Monday night's batch of semi-finalists. But since then the British media attention and the overall pressure seem to be getting a bit over the top:

    Poor thing. Can you imagine what it must be like for her. I'll be rooting for her on Saturday night in the finals but she's got some tough competition from some very cute young singers and some really hot dance groups!

    I'll keep you posted!

    I certainly don't blame her for losing her temper. and besides, she's a Scot.
    I do wonder who talked her into this in the first place. and if they are still considered a friend. I'm supposing she will get some money out of all this.

    This has to have been a shock to her system. To go from relative obscurity to international attention has to be hard.

    Give the girl some breathing space! Wouldn't want to be in her shoes, but I do love her voice. And I think she's got spunk! I was afraid for her because I thought she was awfully shy, but sounds like she can take care of herself! :lol:

    Don't you hate it when Paparrazi ruins things...I don't know how she stands the pressure! Hope she hangs in there though.

    I understand all of the above but what was that little dance she did last week? She didn't look so demure then,

    Well she didnīt win, but I donīt think that matters much, people in the places that matter know her talent is worth caring about and she will go far.

    She did a happy dance, no it wasnīt demure, but is showed just how ordinary a person she was.

    She was a very gracious looser and said some nice things to the winners. I think she has a great sense of fun.

    the guys that did win were fabulous.
