Thoughts on Susan Boyle II

Susan Boyle did not win the finale of Britain's Got Talent.

She finished runner up to a dance troupe called Diversity.

I cannot help but think her outburst with reporters who were haranguing her as well as her subsequent threat to withdraw from the competition probably cost her some votes.

But Boyle was gracious and congratulated Diversity. "The best people won. They're very entertaining. Lads, I wish you all the best."

So where does she go from here? Even though she didn't win surely there are record companies and concert promoters who will come calling and a public willing to buy her recordings and see her concerts.

Or perhaps Susan Boyle will say her fifteen minutes is up and time for us to move to the next flavor of the month. If that is the case it has been well worth our time.
