After Being Denied Singing a Lou Reed Song on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ Susan Boyle Will Get a ‘Perfect Day’ After All

Susan Boyle will be getting her "Perfect Day" after all, reports the British newspaper the Guardian

The singer appears to have worked out rights issues which kept her from performing the song earlier this month on NBC’s "America’s Got Talent," the story says. As previously reported, Boyle dropped out of the show at the last minute after Lou Reed told her she couldn’t perform it, with Simon Cowell calling Reed "petty, so pathetic."

But the Guardian reports that the decision was not personal but simply red tape, since Boyle’s label had only secured U.K. rights but not U.S. rights.

"Perfect Day" will be the lead single on Boyle’s second album, called "The Gift," which will be released on Nov. 9 and include Crowded House’s "Don’t Dream It’s Over" and Leonard Cohen’s "Hallelujah," the story says.
