Susan Boyle at home with her piano.Stressed-out Susan Boyle threw Britain’s Got Talent into chaos yesterday by threatening to quit just 24 hours before the grand final.

The Hairy Angel is cracking up over her amazing zero-to-hero star status.

Churchgoer Susan, 48, cannot take the pressure of being in the media spotlight every day.

And she has been left in tears by the recent backlash from critics – and celebs such as Lily Allen, 24 – slating her as over-rated and fake.

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen!

Susan is incredibly talented and we should appreciate her for that. Are we so starved for entertainment that we are willing to build this woman up only to tear her down? Get a life and just enjoy the music!

Irene... You took the words out of my mouth. Consider her age and add in she's had a learning dissability in her life, conquering social status must be extremely difficult. She's wonderful and I hope she sings before her Majesty QEII.

She is from Scotland the F Bomb is only a big deal in the US she never said Bloody Hell now did she?
Give the lady a break her talent is supreme. Someone in the States must explain to me how words got to be such a big deal when as a child I clearly remember Sticks N Stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you....well that was then and this is the overly sensitive now!

In all the ruckus everyone seems to have forgotten that all she wanted to do was to "make a record, sing in a show, and sing for the queen." all to prove to herself and her mother that she's "not a worthless person." Let her fulfill her dream, let her SING!!! I just can't under stand the negative comments – she's not a professional (yet) and the lyracist of Les Mis LOVED her and that should say a lot!!!

Good luck to you Ms. Boyle. This is just a TV show. You've been on television now more than anyone on this blog will be and you've proven your beautiful voice already. I hope that you grace us with another beautiful song. That would be nice. But there is no pressure. Either way, imagine yourself the winner. Your mother is happy. Just do your best under the circumstances. I admire your bravery greatly for going this far.

Your photos are great, by the way. You look real, and sweet. A face to remember pleasantly. That is also nice.
