(Newser) – Susan Boyle’s tour troubles continued last night when she was dropped from a third Britain’s Got Talent show. Spokespeople said she was “just tired,” but witnesses saw her crying for her cat on her hotel room balcony, the Daily Mail reports. “She kept shouting, ‘I want my cat. I need my cat,’” said one. “I think people felt sorry for her as she was clearly unhappy.”

Even so, a series of Las Vegas shows are still in the works. A source says Simon Cowell "is confident that Susan will achieve a huge amount of success in America. She is already a household name despite coming second on the show, and she is now being lined up to play a number of dates in Las Vegas. The Planet Hollywood bigwigs have been following Susan since she burst on to the scene and are keen to give her a run at the hotel.”
