(Newser) – In an almost eerie rerun of the Susan Boyle incident, Britain's Got Talent has found yet another unlikely star: angel-voiced 81-year-old Janey Cutler. The video of Cutler's "spine-tingling" performance of Edith Piaf's "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" has racked up 407,000 views on YouTube, and, according to the Daily Mirror, has already started a bidding war between US networks, including NBC and CBS, who want her to make an appearance stateside.

“They know how big Susan Boyle went, and they want to get in on the act fast,” said an industry source. Cutler says she's flattered by the attention. “I'm over the moon just to have been able to perform on the program,” she says. “That's all I ever wanted to do. The subsequent interest is making it even more of a dream come true.”
