Susan Boyle delights singing supermarket worker with karaoke duet

Susan Boyle could have her pick of just about any artist in the world to duet with, but the singing superstar was more than happy to perform alongside a local at one of her favourite Blackburn pubs last week.

Supermarket worker John Dickson couldn’t resist asking Su-Bo to sing with him when he spotted the Britain’s Got Talent star enjoying her favourite tipple - a lemonade - in The Crown bar.

He was shocked when the bubbly 51-year-old agreed and asked what he would like to perform.

The 23-year-old told the Daily Record: “I was surprised because I did not expect Susan to say yes but she’s a good sport.

“However, I am not so sure we will do it again even though it has become a talking point in the town.

“And a lot of folk have started calling me JoBo.”

The Blackburn belters rocked a unique rendition of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton favourite Islands in the Stream, much to the delight of the stunned onlookers.

And, of course, thanks to the wonders of technology, John himself is now enjoying his moment in the spotlight, after someone filmed the performance and uploaded it to YouTube.

You can watch the interesting duet here… not sure it will be making it onto Susan’s next album.
While Susan is one of the biggest artists in the world, with millions in the bank, she has stayed true to her Blackburn roots, choosing to live in the humble council home she grew up in and even bagging the odd bargain in pound world.

Earlier, this year, the star is said to have delighted locals by throwing a party to thank them for their support since she shot to fame in 2009.

She told The Sun: "It was to say thank you and show my appreciation for all their support over the last few years.

"We had a great time and it was lovely to be with the people who have helped me along this incredible journey." What a lovely lady.

SHE DREAMED A DREAM
