Susan Boyle is on the mend after being hospitalized Sunday night.
"They are saying they weren't surprised by what happened, due to the speed of everything that happened, with her getting worldwide fame in seconds," he continued. "Provided she's given a few days and then allowed to be as normal as possible, she should be fine. All she wants to do is sing."
Boyle was hospitalized for exhaustion soon after placing second in Talent's Sunday finale. Last week, the singer — who became an overnight sensation for her rendition of Les Miserables' "I Dreamed a Dream" — reportedly had an altercation with British journalists at her hotel.
Clifford said he expected Boyle to fully recover soon, and that Cowell plans to help her with her career. And as for attracting fans following her post-Talent struggle, Clifford said he expects a full image recovery, as well.
"It shouldn't be too difficult to get it under control," he said. "She's going to have potentially huge album sales, particularly in America. Americans absolutely love her. Everyone wants her on their show singing. That gives her massive potential, and Simon will make sure she has the best songs and the best productions."
