Susan Boyle

Screw 'Talent'

I'm Going 'Dancing'

10/4/2010 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Not everyone in the U.S. hates Susan Boyle -- TMZ has learned the singer will return to The States to perform on "Dancing with the Stars" ... just weeks after she left "America's Got Talent" in tears.

Susan Boyle Dancing with the Stars
Sources tell us Boyle is scheduled to perform on Tuesday's live show -- and unlike her experience on "Talent" ... we're guessing she'll make "Dancing" producers clear the song she wants to sing -- "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen -- before she touches down on American soil.

As TMZ first reported ... Boyle was blindsided moments before she was supposed to perform on "America's Got Talent" last month ... when she found out Lou Reed wouldn't give her permission to sing his hit "Perfect Day." Boyle was so devastated, she broke down in tears and caught the first plane back to the U.K.

But Susan has a pretty good history with "Dancing" -- last year, she appeared on the show to perform her signature song, "I Dream a Dream" ... and that went off without a hitch.

Susan was never emotionally ready for her fame. If any little thing comes up, she crumbles and looks completely unstable. So what if a song writer pulls the song at the last moment. Big deal-move on and fly home. Her answer is to throw some fit and cry. VERY immature. Perhaps she lived with mommy to long into her adult life.

@ Dee Dee-Poster #2....

NO, never bought or listened to her music. Heard her once. That was enough. Not my style. I can't see her fame as long lived. She will be in the nut house before that.

I think she pretends to be cuckoo for cocoa puffs to get the pity vote.But she is still a great singer. She is crazy like a fox.

Susan is set for life. She has been offered all kinds of work lately:

1) Kotex offered her a gig as a dancing tampon in their commercials.

2) Mucinex wants her in a Christmas themed commercial where she plays a booger ball that gets banished from Santa's nose.

3) Parents for a Drug Free America want her to appear as herself...as visual proof of what crack can do to you.

4) The Christian Coalition want her as well...to show exactly why brothers & sisters should not marry and reproduce.

5) She's been offered a role in the upcoming "Hobbit" movie where she'll play the part labeled "Hobbit barmaid who gets it on with donkey's on stage at the Prancing Pony."

6) Arnold Shwartzenegger wants to produce "Twins 2" with Susan playing the female version of Danny DiVitto's part.

7) Now that teh Musters is coming back to TV, other serie's as well want her. The most recent is Green Acres...where she will play Arnold the Pig.

8) Dr. Drew is planning a summer special called "When Ugly Folk mate"...Guess who has a starring role?

9) Trojan condoms is willing to pay 1 Million dollars to be able to use her photo on the inside of its condom wrappers. The slogan will be "Out of Trojans but still hungry for nookie? Then look right here to lose your woody!"

10) A new show called "Woman you'd never bone in a million years - extreme makeover." Susan gets to play the before AND after photos.

Anyone hear of other gigs she has been offered?

Oh no, not Hallelujah again! There's a story that Simon Cowell owns the publishing rights....maybe that's why HIS singers sing it to death!

To Dee Dee -- Yes, I think people actually do buy Susan's music.
She broke records with her debut album, had the best selling album of 2009, and earned 65 plantinums last year for her first cd. Have you been living under a rock???? Like it or not, this woman is here to stay, get used to it.

Well said, John!! Why do the Susan haters have to ruin everything? I wish they would all just get a life and stop reading articles about Susan even though they know they don't like her just to stir up trouble. I don't get why some don't like her because her voice is pure and angelic and she has a beautiful heart. Her sensitivty makes her a very caring and compassionate person, not fragile. One of the reasons we love Susan is that we see us in her, and she's not afraid to show her human side.

I think it was right she not perform, but not for the reasons everyone is talking about. The show is called "America's Got Talent", not "Talent Show For Anyone Who Can Buy A Plane Ticket To The Show". If it's America's Got Talent, shouldn't one of the prerequisites be that one BE an American? If I'm not mistaken, Susan Boyle is British. If it's called America's Got Talent lets see America's talent. If anyone from anywhere can enter call it something else.

I can't believe the cruelty in the comments made here. Despite her handicap, her age, her lack of experience, she went after a dream that friends and family encouraged her to pursue. Her voice is absolutely beautiful. Even if her choices aren't your taste, her ability to sing is undeniable.
Apparently many of you on this site are incapable of getting past your petty little rash judgements and attack her character.
You are a bunch of small minded twits. Grow up!

They called Susan to be on the show because they know that if they didn't do something, Bruno is the iceberg that struck the Titanic. Susan has a nice personality, and can sing like an angel WITHOUT AUTO-TUNE (Auto-Tune is the reason I stopped watching Glee, by the way), so she is a perfect choice to try to save the show. TV critics have already said that Dancing With The Stars might take a ratings hit because of the Michael Bolton/Bruno Tonioli feud. I like Susan and I love to see her sing LIVE WITHOUT LIP SYNCHING. The Dancing With The Stars band will be doing the instrumentals, so no CD/MP3 backing track will be needed.

I can't believe all the hurtful things that all these people are writting. How cruel can you get?????
So the lady gets upset when things don't go the way she thinks they should. Is that a reason you all of you to be so hateful??
I think all of you should be ashamed of yourselves.
She has a wonderful voice. None of us know anything about her life or troubles. All of you should take a good hard look at yourselves.

It always strikes me how unusually and distinctively cruel people from NZ are. It's like a sort of national treasure. You can recognize a person from that Country out of his/her first remarks most often because they seem to enjoy putting other people down.
