It has been reported today that Britain’s Got Talent runner up Susan Boyle has been admitted in to a clinic suffering from exhaustion and has allegedly been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who clearly doesn’t have enough to do, a country to run, or thieving politicians to fire, appeared on GMTV this morning and disclosed that he had spoken to judges Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan to check on Susan’s progress. He then added,

“I hope Susan Boyle is OK because she is a really, really nice person and I think she will do well”.

Although sad I can’t say I was surprised when I learned of Susan’s admission in to hospital. While watching her performance on Saturday night during the BGT final I kept thinking ‘she doesn’t look well at all’.  You could tell from the expression on her face that the intense, often intrusive media attention and weeks of pressure had finally taken its toll and was about to implode.

But what of BGT 2009 WINNERS – Diversity?

Well runner up Susan Boyle still dominates news headlines here and around the world, and nobody really seems to be focusing on their fantastic achievement. It’s as if they don’t exist.

The street dance troupe appeared on GMTV this morning which was nice to see but presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd spent the first five minutes of their interview time talking about Susan.

As a matter of fact whenever Saturday’s final was mentioned Susan was the main talking point for about 10 minutes and towards the end of the segment Diversity finally received a brief mention, as if they were the runners up.

However BGT judge Piers Morgan said today that he hoped, “Diversity’s achievement wouldn’t become overshadowed”.

Too late Piers. It’s already happened!

  1. Much as i like susan( lovely lady) and wish her a good recovery, it’s upsetting that diversity are not considered news worthy.

  2. Did you just “say” the Prime Minister? C’mon dude, even Baba Go-Slow (i.e Umaru Yar’dua) no dey waste hin time like that. **Rolls eyes & lets out a hiss, that would make Medusa proud**
    **Attempts the neck snap/roll…crack**

  3. like i said before many times the uk generallly despises anything urban ( i hate that word)
    or hip hop and they will engineer any amount of excuses to avoid HAVING TO DEAL WITH IT APPROPRIATELY! OR GIVE IT THE ADEQUATE PROPS ITS DESERVES….

  4. She is a white woman in a white run country, therefore she will get first priority. Im actually surprised that a mixed heritage group won the competition.

  5. That’s cold, but fact. Reason i have watched x factor last 2 seasons. There was some broken pattern.

  6. Yes yes..big up Diversity. I had tears in my eyes watching. Big up the urban (what you call it?) talents and the dance crews..and big up’s also to Jonzi D’s ‘Breaking Convention’ which is selling out it’s uk tour. Street knowledge all round.

  7. I was surprised as well. The x factor till recently has not had black winners. Diversity winning over Susan Boyle was a shock.

  8. Funny that. I watched x factor and the pop idol and i had given up on black contestants ever winning. Diversity win was a surprise indeed especially over Susan Boyle. She is a nice lady.
