Britain's Got Talent sensation, Susan Boyle, gets 20m hits on YouTube as Oprah aims to make her a star
She’s the undisputed talking point of the week and now Oprah wants to make Britain’s Got Talent sensation, Susan Boyle, a mega-star in America, too.
Following Susan’s performance on the ITV1 talent show, which has already generated more than 20million hits on YouTube, American chatshows have been falling over themselves to sign the 48-year-old Blackburn resident.
She’s already been filmed singing into her hairbrush for one show, but Oprah‘s offer has overshadowed all the other publicity.
‘Wow! Put me down for it. I’m shaking!’ Susan apparently said when told about the plan.
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell believes Susan has a great future ahead of her, dodgy hair and teeth not withstanding.
‘If she went on Oprah I think there’s every chance Susan will have the number one album in America,’ he told The Sun.
And while Susan herself says she’s up for a makeover, Amanda Holden has vowed not to let anyone change her.
‘I won’t let Simon make her go to his dentist and I certainly won’t be letting her go to his hairdresser,’ she said.
‘I think she needs to stay exactly as she is because that’s the reason we love her.
‘The minute we spoil her by turning her into a glamourpuss is going to be when it’s spoilt.’
