susan-boyleSUSAN Boyle Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Susan Boyle in the news.

FRAGILE” Susan Boyle is “charging an astonishing £8,000 A MINUTE to perform live.”

Well, if she’s that fragile, it might be her last show… Dan Wootton has more:

The Britain’s Got Talent star is being booked by corporate clients for £100,000 per 12-minute set, the News of the World can reveal.

That’s £8,333 a MINUTE. Or it’s £140 a SECOND-£10 more than the £129.64 a WEEK the singer, dubbed the Hairy Angel, lives on.

The gigs will quickly add to the £8million fortune SuBo will amass after signing a recording contract with show boss Simon Cowell.

So many facts. But what of the story?

Susan’s bookings are being handled by top agent Andrew Pountain of Industry Music Group. They have been hired exclusively to book out all the BGT finalists outside the show’s tour.

Roll up, roll up. Get your company touched by recession-busting Susan Boyle and rise faster than Lazarus on a trampoline…

We have obtained an email exchange between Pountain and one corporate client inquiring about booking Susan to perform three four-minute songs at an event in August.

However did you get the email from the agent about his amazing star?

He replied the fee would be “100k plus VAT”-meaning the total cost for booking Susan would be £115,000.

So that’s the asking price, as quoted to one – ONE – punter. What did Susan Boyle actually get?  Less agents fees and other costs, and taxes?

On her current rate, just one performance would give her more than enough to buy the £80,000 house. She would even get a £15,000 discount on the purchase because she is the current tenant.
