Donny Osmond supports Susan Boyle

SEVENTIES crooner Donny Osmond is to help stressed out Scots star Susan Boyle – by making a get well call offering his support.

Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan has been staying at top London clinic The Priory after claims she threw a backstage tantrum when she lost out to Diversity in the Britain’s Got Talent final.

Friends and family say she is simply exhausted and just needs support and reassurance that she hasn’t let everybody down.

And now she’s set to get some words of wisdom from her childhood idol – after Los Angeles radio host Billy Bush organised the call from the Osmond.

Susan’s brother Gerry, 55, revealed: “One of the radio stations in Hollywood has organised for Donny Osmond to call Susan to wish her well and calm her down.

“Donny is a big fan of Susan and wants to reassure her that even though she did not win, she still has a career ahead of her and people still want to hear her sing.

“This will absolutely make her day.

“She was a lot younger when she loved the Osmonds, but everybody has a childhood hero and to get a telephone call from that person will just be phenomenal for her.

“His posters were all over her walls when she was younger.

“She would lock herself in her room and play the records over and over again singing along as loud as possible.

“It used to drive me mad when I would hear it start up for the hundredth time. But our mum would say ‘Leave her alone, it’s all she’s got’.

“It’s really something that he wants to get in touch and have a chat with her.”

And Gerry hinted that Donny might even be interested in performing with Susan or recording a duet with the shattered star.

He said: “If they did sing together, the Americans would go absolutely wild for it. The Osmonds are like American royalty and Susan is so popular over there.

“We really appreciate all the support she’s been getting from fans there – it’s like a real-life fairy tale for Susan.”


  1. This is great news. How comforting to see her family and friends rally around Susan at this stressful time. I lwill look forward to seeing her all smiles again. She is such a dear abd dearly loved !

    • I can’t wait to hear that Susan is okay and hoping she be alright to go on an perform and take Pebbles with her. I hope she tours the USA. I sent her a card. She is a sweetheart. I hope everything goes well for her and her future. I’m anxious to buy her music or see her in concert. I have played her episodes on BGT probably 100 times at least. I have been so concerned for her. It is absolutely awful how some people can be so cruel. But it sure sounds like she’s getting so much more praise and she’s probably just as popular as Donny Osmond was at one time. I loved him too.

  2. Oops so sorry for all the typo’s in my above post. I wanted to say she was such a dear and dearly loved ! We love you Susan! Susan and her music lives on my blog ; )

  3. The most import thing at the moment is that Susan is gonna be better soon! She is a strong beautiful lady. Susan is a charming lady with an exreme beautiful voice!
    I hope she’ s gonna sing with Donny Osmond. And in the recording studio’s it will never be a problem to do it over over and over again, cause Susan knows how to sing!

  4. I sincerely Hope that Suan boyle is not judged by her recent admission to a mental health ward , The stressed caused by the nasty media looking for something to put in their papers. How well would other performers fare if that was them in the same situation . and what do we really know about the other performers , I dont recall anyone being shown their house on TV or their pet , Its all gone way too far just let her sing and be who she wants to be not what others want her to be .

  5. What a wonderful and thoughtful gestture. My heart broke to watch her get 2nd place, but she is 1st rate, and 1st place in all our hearts. What is really terrific is that she is free from BGT policy & procedures, and can take life, and her career at her own pace. Get well soon Susan, we’re waiting for that CD. Huugggs from Canada.

  6. Susan Boyle’s favorite song is “Puppy Love”! Check out her answer in this interview:

    Are you guys going to watch the Susan Boyle special on TV Guide Network tomorrow night? I was talking to some other fans and they hadn’t heard about it so I wanted to make sure you knew! Tell your friends about it, because that’s the only time and place they’ll be able to see it in the US!”
