LONDON - What’s next, a fake tan?

Britain is buzzing over singing sensation Susan Boyle’s mini-makeover, with some worrying that her new look may cost her some support in the “Britain’s Got Talent” competition that catapulted her to international stardom.

Boyle, 47, became an instant YouTube and Internet celebrity after appearing on the British TV show with gray frizzy hair, bushy eyebrows and a jowly face above a remarkably unflattering dress. The contrast between Boyle’s un-adorned looks and her angelic singing voice endeared her to viewers the world over.

But on Friday, Boyle appeared on the cover of The Sun tabloid sporting freshly dyed and styled brown locks and newly shaped eyebrows.

While no one could accuse Boyle of turning into a WAG — as the highly stylized Wives and Girlfriends of England’s wealthy athletes are called — the difference was shocking.

“Compared to what she had, it’s a 200 percent improvement,” said Toni Jones, assistant fashion editor of The Sun. “But our readers think this is as far as she should go. We want her to stay one of us, not get hair extensions and a fake tan.”

Jones praised Boyle for getting a 35-pound ($51) hair cut at a local salon near her home in Scotland rather than trekking to London for a 200-pound ($295) cut at a celebrity salon.

But Max Clifford, Britain’s most prominent publicist, called the makeover a major risk because it could jeopardize the phenomenal connection between Boyle and her worldwide audience.

“Keep her as natural as possible for as long as possible,” said Clifford. “It’s more about protection than promotion. She’s got the voice. She has to make sure that the person people all around the world fell in love with remains the same.”

In addition to the new haircut, Boyle has also upgraded her wardrobe. Instead of the plain beige dress she wore on her first TV appearance, she was recently photographed wearing a stylish black leather jacket and what appeared to be a Burberry scarf.

Judges of “Britain’s Got Talent” will decide May 23 whether Boyle gets through to the next round. Britain’s bookmakers have made her the firm favorite to win the competition.

Yeah. People love the underdog, problem is once you've become famous you can't remain one for very long.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Oh Susan, Susan.......WHY????

I adored her as she stood on the stage so confident, sassy and NATURAL.
Who told her she needed to get a makeover?? She's lived a certain way for 47 years, why change now??

What's next? Pilates? A gym subscription? Plastic surgery? Liposuction?
Bahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!.....

Susan dear - don't change a THING!!!!.....It's a TALENT competition and not a beauty contest!

Have you ever seen a pic of yourself and thought "Oh shit! I look like that!? You'd think it would be the same face/body you see in the mirror, but somehow you always look different (and mostly worse) in pics or on video/tv than you do in that mirror.

I remember hearing her mention her surprise at the way she looked when she saw herself on tv, so perhaps she decided she needed a bit of a change for herself. And if it makes her feel good, why shouldn't she? I mean it's not as if she had a boob job and a face-lift. She's not exactly glam -- she still looks like a nice middle-aged woman with no pretensions.

On a satirical news program over here Have I Got News For You, Katy Brand a comedienne mentioned how she found it very patronising the discussion over how she looked, even when people are saying oh she shouldn't change. In a sense it's like a reverse snobbery, we only liked you because you were frumpy, now that you're not well you aren't that great anymore. So you either have to be beautiful or be ugly (i'm loath to use the term ugly, but it's been bandied about the media quite a bit).

if she wouldn't have changed her appearance at all it would also be conceived a gimmick
I can understand not doing yourself up for auditions of shows like that
but of course you'll do up your appearance when you go through to the next round and know for sure you'll be on tellie
unless you lack self respect

she's got a very good voice
I wonder whether she was perhaps nervous during the audition and could sound even better (control her vibrato a bit more, mostly)

calm down, all she did was tweeze the eyebrows and get a cut and colour that any normal woman would get. Are we supposed to applaud her for looking as shit as possible on national tv? I think its a looooooong way from a fake tan and hair extensions, she is just tidying her appearance up because she might have watched herself and though, yeah i could do a few things. Does it make her any more attractive? Are there now thousands of men baying for her all over the world? I don't think so, she still looks the same.

The other thing is, there are plenty of woman like her who sing opera who are not beautiful. I suppose its because only shallow shits watch the show, and have no idea that there are other singers out there besides your latest gang banger rapper and britney spears.

I mean look at American Idol at the moment, those singers are absolutely SHIT, but somehow are staying around. Beauty gets you through, not talent.

Simon Cowell is working on a movie about Susan Boyle. It's anything to make a buck.

It looks like Susan may have a little competition.

I honestly kind of find the kids on these shows to be creepy. I'm really not fond of their parents peddling them like this, and I actually kind of don't care for precocious kids with a talent...show them to me in 10 years, and we'll talk.
