Susan Boyle Vs Barack Obama and the Today Show

A sign of the times?

It seems Barack Obama is no match for Susan Boyle when it comes to primetime.

The American President had hoped to broadcast a televised press conference at 9pm today on NBC to explain his plans for reforming America’s private-sector health care system, but Mr Obama was rebuffed by the network in favour of the Britains Got Talent runner-up.

Instead, The White House was forced into moving President Obama’s latest prime time news conference to 8pm, when it will be aired live on three US networks, including NBC.

A US television insider told the Daily Express: “The television networks normally comply even if it is in prime viewing.

“It can lose them ratings and millions of dollars in advertising revenue. But NBC dug its heels in and refused to push Susan out of the prime time slot, so The White House had to just blink.”

The 48-year-old Scottish spinster has enjoyed worldwide success following her sensational performance of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ from Les Miserables on the hit ITV show, of which the clip took the internet by storm.

Check out the video of a revamped Susan Boyle on the Today Show, talking makeovers, meltdowns, overnight fame and err Harpers Bazaar.

    Am I the only one who feels she has an air of arrogance about her?
