Was Susan Boyle, the international singing sensation who finished second on "Britain’s Got Talent" last week—and who was in a psychiatric hospital in North London—a victim of viewers calling a wrong phone number when they tried to vote for her?
That’s the question raised in a report by the Daily Mail. The London-based newspaper says that moments after Ms. Boyle’s final performance on the show YouTube, with the cooperation of the show, ran clips of her performance. But some of those clips carried the wrong voting number for her.
Ms. Boyle, who was considered the frontrunner in the show, was upset by a dancing group called Diversity.
