Susan Boyle's Meltdown Defended By Piers Morgan

'Britain's Got Talent' judge Piers Morgan has come to the defense of Susan Boyle after she lost her cool in a rather public meltdown.

"Cops intervened at 5pm yesterday after Susan went berserk in the lobby of the Wembley Plaza Hotel in North London when two strangers set out to 'wind her up,'" writes 'The Sun'. "The Scottish singer was heard to roar 'How f--king dare you! You can't f--king talk to me like that."

According to the paper, "when one of two cops stationed at the hotel went up and asked: 'Is there a problem?', Susan replied "of course there's a f--king problem" as she turned on her heel and marched out the exit followed by her family."

But Morgan says he can understand what happened and reveals Boyle was ready to quit the show: "I'm feeling more supportive of her today than I was before, because I feel really sorry for Susan."

"From what I hear she's been in tears the last two days. She even threatened to leave the show yesterday at one stage, because of the sheer amount of pressure on her."

"And you have to remember with Susan, she's a 48-year-old lady from a tiny village in Scotland who has never been exposed to anything like this kind of attention. And I think she's really feeling the heat."

"The hotel she's in is crawling in tourists, crawling in the media. I think maybe she overreacted. I don't know what happened. She denies, apparently, some of the things that have been reported."

"But either way, I know she's feeling a lot of pressure, and I think that most people watching this show and hearing about this will feel natural sympathy toward her. And I just hope it all calms down for the final. Because, on Saturday, she sings for the competition."

Meanwhile, Boyle has released her own statement: "I've spent weeks rehearsing – it's all I've been thinking about. I'm not going to throw away my big chance now. I want nothing more than to stay and sing."
