Is 'Britain's Got Talent's' Janey Cutler The Next Susan Boyle?
"I'm over the moon just to have been able to perform on the program," Cutler tells the UK's Telegraph. "This unexpected interest is making it even more of a dream come true."Since her triumphant moment, Cutler has been the object of worldwide media attention -- she's even discussed her sudden stardom with CBS News. The great-grandmother, who has been singing since the age of 6, auditioned for the show at the behest of a friend after initially shooting down the idea on account of being "too old."
Aside from their similarly jaw-dropping performances on 'Britain's' stage, Cutler's own journey also mirrors that of Boyle's. She was discovered while auditioning in Glasgow, Scotland -- the same city where Boyle was found by the show. So what does Cutler think of the comparisons? She tells CBS News that she's "on her own" and doesn't compare herself to anyone.
After Betty White's triumphant 'SNL' episode, it seems octogenarians are having the best week ever. So what do you think, is the 81-year-old grandmother good enough to fill SuBo's enormous, albeit modest, shoes? Judge Simon Cowell sure seems to think so, giving Cutler "3,003" yeses -- one for everyone in the 'Britain's Got Talent' studio audience.
