She's already made a name for herself across the pond, and now Susan Boyle's management team are pulling out all the stops to boost her career even further.
The 48-year-old's vocal coach made a 2,000 mile trip from Chicago to Los Angeles to prepare Susan for a three-minute-long television appearance reports the Mirror.
Yvie Burnett - a regular voice coach on The X Factor - made the last minute dash to the studio of Oprah Winfrey where Susan was recording.
"Yvie gives Susan support and she attended the TV special," says a source.
"Susan likes having Yvie there. Her team decided it was worth spending thousands to get her there even if it was only for one song and at the last minute."
The show will be shown in the US next week.
