Susan Boyle may be in the nuthouse, but she won't likely end up in the poorhouse. Simon Cowell knows a goldmine when he sees one, and will still sign the Britain’s Got Talent second-place finisher to his label, sources tell the Mirror. “Simon knows Susan has a massive future,” said a source. “He doesn’t want to let such a talent go.” The reality star is expected to record a show tunes album with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.
Boyle, who will first perform on the Talent winners’ tour, could earn up to $16.4 million in her first year as a professional singer, the Mail adds. A series of high-profile appearances are planned, and an autobiography and film are expected—but one person who might not come calling is composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, who was miffed Susan did not perform his song in the finals, sources tell MSNBC.
