Susan Boyle Won't Get "Makeover," Vows Judge
Don't expect Susan Boyle -- the Scottish singing sensation who won over judges on Britain's Got Talent -- to change her look. "I won't let Simon Cowell take her to his dentist and I certainly won't let her near his hairdresser," judge Amanda Holden tells the U.K. Mirror.
The frumpy 48-year-old "needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her," Holden insists. "She just looks like anybody who could live on your street." "The minute we turn her into a glamour-puss is when it's spoiled," she says.
A makeover "can perhaps come later when she has signed the album deal and conquered America," Holden adds. "For now we'll keep her exactly as she is because that's why we've all fallen in love with her. I think it's the underdog thing."
More than 11 million viewers have watched her perform "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical Les Miserables, and she has attracted a fierce celeb following, including Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, who said Boyle's performance "made me teary!" Has all the fanfare helped Boyle - who said she's "never been kissed" - find a mate? "No comment," she said, with a laugh, on Friday's Today show. She said the intense worldwide reaction "hasn't sunk in yet."
