Meg takes Londontown!

Hello mates! I just returned from my whirlwind trip to London! I was sent there Friday to cover Susan Boyle and the show "Britain's Got Talent". In this photo I am inteviewing fans outside the finale of the show on Saturday. If you have not heard of Susan Boyle, all you need to do is pick up a paper or find her singing "I dreamed a dream" on you tube...this woman was blasted to superstardom in a matter of weeks, finished 2nd on the show and now is recovering at an upscale rehab facility in London. I ran around London for a few days, interviewing people about her care and how she is doing, as well as questioning if the producers of reality shows really take good care of their contestants. This poor woman obviously needed more help along the way... On a happier note - she seems to be getting better and might join the Britain's Got Talent tour which kicks off June 12th. What was interesting is that this woman attracted press from all around the world. I was interviewed by French, Russian and Japanese press about why America loves Susan Boyle. I also appeared on Sky News and the BBC. London is such a pretty city! From my runs in Hyde Park to the yummy food and delightful people ( that accent is very contagious!)... I think London is one of the most enchanting cities on earth and I can't wait to go back! Cheers!
