Let $\lambda^{*}>0$ denote the largest possible value of $\lambda$ such that $$ \{{array}{lllllll} \Delta^{2}u=\frac{\lambda}{(1-u)^{p}} & \{in}\ \ B, 01$ and $n$ is the exterior unit normal vector. We show that for $\lambda=\lambda^{*}$ this problem possesses a unique weak solution $u^{*}$, called the extremal solution. We prove that $u^{*}$ is singular when $n\geq 13$ for $p$ large enough and $1-C_{0}r^{\frac{4}{p+1}}\leq u^{*}(x)\leq 1-r^{\frac{4}{p+1}}$ on the unit ball, where $ C_{0}:=(\lambda^{*}/\bar{\lambda})^{\frac{1}{p+1}}$ and $\bar{\lambda}:=\frac{8(p-1)}{(p+1)^{2}}[n-\frac{2(p-1)}{p+1}][n-\frac{4p}{p+1}]$. Our results actually complete part of the open problem which \cite{D} lef
