Piers Morgan Rushes to Defense of Susan Boyle

by at . Comments

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.


She lives like 15 miles down the road from me, no joke.


This is what happens when the tabloids do their best to tear someone down.
I guess they felt that Susan deserved so much scorn, after all, she had the audacity to enter a talent show.


I think that BGT should be protecting the contestants from the media during the week of the semi-finals and finals. The stress has to be enormous as it is without being bothered by people whenever they leave their motel rooms. Furthermore, Susan is from a small town and not used to having to deal with the "sharks". Certainly, she will probably have to learn, but it's a bit much to have that to deal with on top of the stress of getting ready for the finals. I commend Piers for defending her.
