Scottish diva to sing at talents final

Susan Boyle will perform with Chinese talents at the final of the second season of China's Got Talent on July 10 at the Shanghai Stadium, officials said yesterday.

The Britain's Got Talent star is expected to sing classic songs for the local audience.

She will reveal more details about her collaborations with local talents in Shanghai in early July, said organizers.

Meanwhile, Chinese media celebrity Yang Lan replaced Jerry Huang, who is currently on his honeymoon, as a judge for the semifinal of the competition, recorded yesterday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Beforehand, Yang said she would judge as a woman, a media critic and an ordinary audience member.

However, it has not been decided whether Yang will replace Huang for the final.

Basketball star Yao Ming was invited to be a special observer for the semifinal, representing views and comments from the audience.

"My wife and my mother-in-law are big fans of the show," Yao said. "The talents displayed by the contestants are exciting and inspiring."

Scottish singer Boyle shot to fame as a contestant on Britain's Got Talent in 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables.
