(Newser) – Overnight sensation Susan Boyle may see yet another dream come true. The aspiring singer, whose voice stunned viewers of Britain's Got Talent last week, has been invited to perform with her idol, British theater icon Elaine Paige, reports the Guardian. "It seems her performance has captured the hearts of everyone who saw it, me included," Paige wrote on her website. "Perhaps we should record a duet?"

Boyle cited Elaine Paige as her role model, to snickers, right before blowing away the audience with her performance. And Paige isn't her only celebrity supporter: "It made me teary," tweeted Demi Moore. An Oprah appearance may also be on the cards. Though Boyle is taking the attention in stride, she acknowledged, "I could get used to it."
