it seems to me Susan's negative press in the tabloids and CNN, plus tweets on Twitter may have worked against her.
It's been a week and I still can't get enough of the Susan Boyle phenomenon -- I've watched her video countless times.
They both have 'the X factor,' 'the Wow factor,' that certain je ne sais quoi.
To win the contest Boyle should revert to a song that shows her greater strengths, one which is in her complete range so that she can demonstrate she deserves to be a musical star.
In his frankest interview ever, Simon Cowell opens up about his lonely single life.

Idol needs to look relevant: the problem with being the most-watched, biggest moneymaker on network TV? There's nowhere to go but down.
So is this the finale? Is Simon right when he says Adam Lambert is fated to win? Or could Kris Allen or Danny Gokey surprise everyone the way David Cook did last year?
Where's the suspense? Adam, Kris, and Danny are like a presidential election between Barack Obama, Ralph Nader, and Lyndon LaRouche.
We'll see tonight if all the praise and support pays off for Lambert, or fuels a backlash that cuts his Idol dreams short.
The bottom line is this -- Lambert has shocked judges each week with his strong rearrangements of songs, wailing vocals and fashion sense. A mustache seems the next logical step for Lambert.
EW took an inventive step in noting Adam's sexuality by making it a "footnote." This move is quite symbolic.
Lambert has completely dominated the competition since his first appearance. Writers have hurled superlatives as if he were the second coming of Elvis and Streisand.

Ever since Cat Stevens embraced Islam, the West has been clueless when it comes to accepting the former superstar. His latest release, Roadsinger, is a good start in rebuilding that emotional bridge to Stevens.

The world of opera is a mirror image of the Susan Boyle circus. Serious fans regard good-looking singers with suspicion, fearing gorgeous looks are becoming more important than gorgeous singing.
I JUST DON'T GET THE BIG DEAL WITH SUSAN BOYLE. I watched the video on YouTube. In case you haven't seen it (but almost everyone I know has), it's a...
Something to remember about this year's singing is that it's only part of an evolving notion of what popular singing is.
Then Susan Boyle sang. She didn't just sing. She overwhelmed. She was perfect. The audience was on its feet. Simon was simply fooled and couldn't wash that "I've been had" smile off his face.
At a time of losses worldwide, banks failing, jobs gone, success has become sweet and natural again.
At the risk of alienating everyone on the planet, I am going to raise my voice against the Susan Boyle phenomenon.
Beyond his part in the Susan Boyle juggernaut, Mr. Cowell was also the central attraction on the top-rated television shows on separate continents las...
