Following the much-ballyhooed Susan Boyle meltdown from this week, Piers Morgan is rushing to the defense of the singer.
On CBS' The Early Show Thursday, the Britain's Got Talent just said he feels sorry for the burgeoning celebrity.
"From what I hear, she's been in tears the last two days. She even threatened to leave the show yesterday at one stage, because of the sheer amount of pressure on her," Morgan said. "And you have to remember with Susan, she's a 48-year-old lady from a tiny village in Scotland who has never been exposed to anything like this kind of attention. And I think she's really feeling the heat."
Susan Boyle, seen here dealing with British policemen following a run-in with journalists, is feeling the pressures of fame.
Morgan continued, citing the conditions under which Boyle reportedly flipped out:
"The hotel she's in is crawling in tourists, crawling in the media. I think maybe she overreacted. I don't know what happened. She denies, apparently, some of the things that have been reported.
"But either way, I know she's feeling a lot of pressure, and I think that most people watching this show and hearing about this will feel natural sympathy toward her. And I just hope it all calms down for the final. Because, on Saturday, she sings for the competition."
Can Boyle overcome the pressure and win Britain's Got Talent?!? A world awaits the answer.
