'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful Janey Cutler has become an overnight internet sensation.
The 81-year-old great-grandmother - who wowed the judging panel during Saturday night (08.05.10)'s audition round of the talent show - has become an instant success, with over 309,000 people around the world watching her audition on video website YouTube over the weekend.
Janey has now been dubbed the "new Susan Boyle" because of the speed in which her audition has become so popular.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm over the moon just to have been able to perform on the programme, that's all I have ever wanted to do. This subsequent interest is making it even more of a dream come true. I'm really excited about it."
The Scottish singer received a standing ovation for her rendition of Edith Piaf's 'Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien' - with judges Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan raising to their feet with the audience.
The video on YouTube has been flooded with comments from fans of the Glaswegian pensioner.
One wrote: "What a lovely lady! She's a real inspiration. I hope she has a ball. Go Janey!"
Another added: "Wonderful song, wonderful voice, charming individual. What's not to like?"
