Susan Boyle Launches Her Own Singing Competition

Susan Boyle must have taken some notes from Simon Cowell! The Britain’s Got Talent finalist wants her fans to be able to have the same chance at fame as she did, so she’s launching her own singing competition.

She’s been working on her next record The Gift, and wants to bring on more singers to collaborate on the album. So she’s created a search to find a singer to duet with her on the album!

She says, "Last year my dream of becoming a recording artist came true after auditioning on Britain's Got Talent. Since then, I've had an absolutely fantastic time. It's been a real gift to me and now I would like to pass on the gift to someone else...

"There are a lot of people out there who wouldn't have the confidence or perhaps the means to enter a big competition like Britain's Got Talent. So this might be a lot less daunting for some people as they can record the song in the privacy of their own home. I'm hoping that people who have always wanted to sing will give it a try. I wish you all good luck."

The competition is being run on Boyle's official website until July 23rd. Fans are asked to upload videos of themselves singing Silent Night to try and win the contest.
