If Simon Cowell gets his way, then yes. The former American Idol Judge told Extra that the YouTube singing sensation would be an ideal choice to sing at Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding in April. He also added Susan Boyle’s version of “Dreamed a Dream” would be the perfect choice for a wedding song. Personally, “Back That Ass Up” would a much better idea. It’ll throw everyone off and add a little flava to the mix. I kid.
So what makes Cowell such an expert on this topic. Apparently, the acerbic judge and Prince William are “friends” and he noted the royals are fans of “X-Factor“. Here’s what he said
“I’m actually friends with Prince Harry. Well, I wouldn’t say friends, per se, but he’s come down to the show,” Cowell said. “He and I get along very well. He’s a very, very nice guy. I like him a lot.”
In other Susan Boyle related news, the Scottish singer recently revealed she’d love to work with Beatle legend, Sir Paul McCartney, with whom she’s listened to since she was a youngster. Here’s what she told UK’s “The Sun”
“The Beatles are still around now, their records live on. I hope to be in the same calibre one day. I know I’ve got a lot to do yet though. I’d like to meet Paul. If he ever wanted to perform together, I’d have no problem with it – here I am, baby,”
Paul McCartney isn’t the only artist Boyle is eying as a potential collaborator. “What’s My Name?” singer Rihanna is on the Scot’s radar. She’s apparently a huge fan of the R&B singer and wants to test out her R&B talents with the songstress. OMG. I would love to see this happen stat. Whoever has the power to make this happen, do it now. How awesome would it be to see Boyle and RiRi in a music video together? That would put all other duets to shame.
