London (ANI): Singer Susan Boyle is being lined up to appear for a guest role in this year's talent competition X Factor, host Dermot O'Leary has revealed. Show bosses apparently want Susan to coach finalists during the appearance, which would also give the singing sensation a chance to share the stage with the contestants she mentors.
Dermot said: "Who she's going to duet with - that's the fun part," The Sun quoted Dermot as saying. The presenter further revealed he admires the 48-year-old songbird, who ended up as the runner-up in Britain's Got Talent finals. He added: "She was brilliant. I think finishing second was probably the best thing that could have happened to her."
Dermot also said added the Scottish singer could play the muse for older contestants, who could pick pointers from her during a special episode. He said: "I think we all need to be ashamed of ourselves in the sense that as a public we all did look at her and go, She's not good looking, she can't possibly have a good voice. I'm glad that she did so well."
