    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.

    I wasn't critisizing her I was just surprised. I thought for sure she would win.

    I couldn't believe she didn't win...but it won't matter in the long run...she has "made" her name...so we'll get to enjoy her CD's for years to come. Oh yes...she will most definetly be recording!

    about the temper comment, i just meant i didn't blame her. (my Mother always blamed her temper on being Irish) i never believed her.
    I'd get upset too if reporters were hounding me. they really need to make some laws about giving people space. that is what those zoom lenses are for anyway. :mrgreen:

    I agree about the reporters, they can be really overbearing. BTW I didnīt take offence I was just joshing with you. I was grinning when I wrote it,

    Think like you said Patti, she is made, she didnīt need to win, The first contenstant that ever won on Britains Got Talent was Paul Pots, in 2 years he has made over 5 Million Pounds. Now if only I could sing LOL

    She is unforgetable....lots of people can sing and dance...but when she starts you turn to look and see where that sound come from. Who wins these contests is who knows the most electronics. I would love to hear her in person :D

    Yes it is about electronics, but I think she has a better voice than some of the so called super singers we have that make records, Brittany comes to mind along with a few others. I know Brittany does sing that kind of song, well perhaps she couldnīt :wink:

    The news said today that Simon Cowell has made her one of his contracts and she is likely to make up to 8M. Not bad.
