If you’ve got tickets to the final episode taping of this season’s China’s Got Talent you’re in for an extra treat. It’s just come in that Susan Boyle, the overnight Scottish singing sensation, will make a special appearance on the final episode of the hugely popular China’s Got Talent. The finale will take place right here at Shanghai’s Grand Stadium on July 10 where Boyle will sing a few classical songs with local acts. Her contract appearance was signed many months ago but China’s Got Talent production did not want to release the news until now for fear she may cancel for health reasons. Last year, the 50-yr old singer was booked to appear on Jiangsu Satellite TV’s NY Eve special and canceled last minute citing poor physical and psychological health.
As you might remember, Boyle shot to fame on the original UK version Britain’s Got Talent. Watch her audition that grabbed the world’s attention in 2009 just below.
And she’s not the only celebrity stopping by the show. You can expect NBA star Yao Ming to be a part of the taping at the semifinals episode. When asked why he accepted the invitation to appear as a special guest he says, “My wife and my mother-in-law are big fans of the show. The talents displayed by the contestants are exciting and inspiring.”
