Piers Morgan Talks With Susan Boyle in a Revealing One-Hour Interview about Her Journey to Superstardom
LOS ANGELES (January 5, 2011) - TV GUIDE NETWORK announced today that it has acquired the exclusive U.S. rights to Britain's highly rated Susan Boyle episode of "Piers Morgan's Life Stories" which will air on the Network on Monday, January 10th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
In the special, the Scottish singer, who made international headlines while competing in "Britain's Got Talent," sits down with the reality show's judge for a revealing interview about her tumultuous life events after she lost the competition and her journey to become a global superstar. Boyle discusses the panic she felt after coming in second place, her frightening experience at The Priority Clinic and addresses the media reports about her bad temper and meltdowns.
Morgan has said about his extended interview with Boyle, "This unlikely superstar has had to put up with people calling her mad, stupid and backward since she first burst to fame 18 months ago. To all those who vilified her, I simply command you to watch our encounter, and see for yourself the intelligent, eloquent, passionate and incredibly endearing woman that I've always said she is."
