(Newser) – Seemingly sweet Britain’s Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle ranted against fellow contestant Shaheen Jafargholi last night at a London hotel bar, the Mirror reports. When judge Piers Morgan called the 12-year-old's performance “the best singing we have heard in the semifinals so far,” Boyle, 48, allegedly made a rude gesture, shouted “fuck off” at the screen, and stormed upstairs to her room.

“Everyone was stunned by her reaction,” one onlooker said. A Britain’s Got Talent rep denied the report: “As far as we are aware Susan was not at the bar during Shaheen's performance. She started watching the show there but left early and watched some of the acts in her room as she was being asked for interviews in the bar by journalists.”
