OK, auditioning might be a stretch, but the Scottish singer did return to the US version of the talent show to take part in a Champions edition of ‘America’s Got Talent’, and immediately reminded everyone why she became such a huge star in the first place.
Asked if she saw herself as a champion, Susan said: “For those who, maybe, don’t have the confidence to do things, for those that don’t have a voice, the ones who people tend to ignore. I feel I’m a champion for them.”
She then floored Simon and his fellow judges Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B with a stunning version of the Rolling Stones’ classic, ‘Wild Horses’, which impressed Mel so much that she ended up pressing her ‘Golden Buzzer’ for the 57-year-old star.
Mel told her: “I just want to say what an absolute honour and pleasure it is to be sitting here and listening to you. Your angelic voice and I want to be the woman who gives you something you deserve.”
Following a standing ovation, Simon added: “I can’t think of any other contestant who has defined this show better than if I’m being honest with you. You’re the one, you made a huge difference in a lot of people’s lives. I’m absolutely thrilled you’re here.”
Susan is now straight through to the show’s live final, which she is already being tipped to win.
