(Newser) – Susan Boyle will likely be traveling to the US this summer to appear on America's Got Talent, reports People. “If she’s up for it and she is well enough, our feeling is she probably will," said judge Piers Morgan. "Absolutely.” The NBC talent show, back on the air later this month, is the US version of Britain's Got Talent, the show that catapulted Boyle to singing fame.

“Susan singing live to 25 million Americans? That would be great,” said Morgan. "She still gets a bit tired sometimes, but she is 48.” Boyle's brother says a trip to the US makes perfect sense because 95% of her fan mail originates here. Briefly hospitalized after the British show's finale, Boyle has since joined the show's live tour.
