Susan Boyle Hospitalized After Losing 'Britain's Got Talent'

On Saturday, Susan Boyle lost “Britain’s Got Talent”. On Sunday she was admitted into the Priory clinic suffering from exhaustion. All of the attention finally proved to be too much for the 48-year-old, who was new to celebrity. She rose to fame only seven weeks ago when her first audition for "Britain's Got Talent" became a You Tube sensation.

"Britain's Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan told the BBC that Susan Boyle was feeling "physically and mentally drained" prior to her admission to the clinic. Priory is a private facility,known for helping celebrities deal with mental health issues. In the week leading up to Saturday's final, Susan Boyle's behavior was scrutinized by the British press after two foul-mouthed public outbursts.

On Saturday night, Susan Boyle was gracious in defeat. The dance group Diversity bested her in the public vote, receiving 24.9% to her 20.2% of the nearly 4 million votes cast. When the result was announced, Susan Boyle smiled and told show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, "The best people won. They are very entertaining lads," before turning to Diversity to say, "Lads, I wish you all the best."
