Earlier today we wrote about the alleged smackdown Lou Reed gave Susan Boyle with regards to her planned performance of his song “Perfect Day” on yesterday’s episode of America’s Got Talent. And while the masses were denied hearing SuBo sing the 1972 ballad, we’ve got her recorded version of the song for your listening pleasure below.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/01-A-Perfect-Day.mp3" text="Susan Boyle - Perfect Day" dl="0"]
Boyle’s official site has a new update stating the following:
“Yesterday afternoon Susan was due to perform a chosen song from her new album The Gift on America’s Got Talent in Los Angeles. It is with real disappointment and regret that she has been unable to do so due to unforeseen circumstances relating to the song.
“Susan is very disappointed as she had been looking forward to it immensely. She is now on a plane heading back to London with a heavy heart. She would like to say thank you to all those fans who traveled miles to lend their support today.
“Your support is really appreciated by Susan and please be assured every effort was made to try to find a solution. Susan really looks forward to being able to perform her new songs very soon.”
As noted earlier, those “unforseen circumstances relating to the song” involve Reed saying no to Boyle’s performance on AGT because he “doesn’t like” the singer, according the UK paper The Sun.
So what do you think? Now that you’ve heard Susan’s cover, is it much ado about nothing? Or should Lou take a walk on the wild side and let the Britain’s Got Talent alum belt out his tune on TV?
