    Denied! Lou Reed denied Susan Boyle permission to perform his song "Perfect Day" on America's Got Talent on Wednesday night. The cold, hard denial reportedly brought the British songstress to tears.

    A source said Reed's reason for the last-minute rejection was that he "didn't like" Boyle. How do you not like Su Bo? She has the voice of an angel and if the Pope grants her permission to perform before him, I think Lou Reed should stop being such a curmudgeon and let Su Bo sing "Perfect Day." Come on, Lou! Lighten up.

    An insider revealed that Boyle "had flown to America to do this and was very excited. Her version of the song was perfect. You could tell she was upset. It's very disappointing for her." Su Bo is back in London now.

    Team Su Bo or Team Lou Reed?
