SINGING sensation Susan Boyle has scored an interview with the biggest name in daytime television, according to US reports.
The 47-year-old Scot is to chat with talkshow host Oprah Winfrey via satellite from her West Lothian home as part of a talent show special.
The New York Daily News reported that Boyle will be interviewed as part of an episode
titled The World's
ot Talent to
be aired in the US on Monday.
Viewers will be taken on a tour of the contestant's home and may be treated to a song.
A film crew was in attendance at her house in Blackburn yesterday.
Boyle has emerged as an international star after wowing Britain's Got Talent judges with her performance of I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables.
Online video clips of the unemployed Blackburn church volunteer's performance on 11 April have been viewed more than 100 million times and she counts Hollywood actress Demi Moore among her supporters.
Boyle is favourite to walk away with the ITV1 show's £100,000 jackpot after wowing the audience and judges on her original appearance, and said she would be humbled to perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance – another part of the winner's prize.
