This is such a nice story – Susan Boyle was reportedly left “starstruck” after a meeting with her idol Elaine Paige.

According to The Sun, the Britain’s Got Talent star discussed a potential duet and the troubles of fame with the Radio 2 presenter.

“Susan was completely starstruck. It was like watching a kid at Christmas,” said a source. “It really was a dream come true.”

Paige voiced her support for the singer throughout the ITV1 talent show after Boyle claimed that she aspired to be like the veteran West End performer at her first audition.

Boyle is currently working on her debut album, which Simon Cowell has claimed will “surprise” her critics.

She is rumoured to have recorded a cover of Ella Fitzgerald’s blues track ‘Cry Me A River’ for the LP, a song she previously performed on a charity CD in 1999.

Time to place them bets on Susans Xmas number one I think ๐Ÿ™‚

Susan Boyle will release a West End-themed album before Christmas, say tabloid reports.

According to The Sun, the 48-year-old spent Wednesday in a recording studio with producers from Sony Music.

The tracklisting will apparently include Boyle’s favourite West End hits, her cover of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and potentially a duet with her idol Elaine Paige.

“Wednesday was Susan’s first day as a recording artist – she had a brilliant time,” said a source. “She talked about what songs she wanted for the album – itโ€™s going to be a case of trying to pin her down to her favourite ten or so.”

Boyle is expected to only appear at a limited number of Britain’s Got Talent tour shows because of her recent admission to the The Priory clinic with exhaustion.

The 23-date jaunt, which features all the acts from the ITV1 show final, opens in Birmingham tonight.
