'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful Janey Cutler is set to turn down offers to become a huge star in America because she doesn't want to leave her beloved dog Tara
'Britain's Got Talent' star Janey Cutler is set to turn down offers to break America because she doesn't want to leave her dog.
The 81-year-old great grandma - who has been dubbed the new Susan Boyle following her stunning performance of Edith Piaf's 'No Regrets' on Saturday's (08.05.10) show - has been inundated with offers to fly first-class to the States and perform on a number of high-profile shows.
However, the Scottish singer can't bear to be parted from her beloved 12-year-old border collie Tara.
Janey - who lives alone with the pooch - said: "I'd hate the thought of leaving my wee dog."
Her friend added: "Janey is devoted to Tara."
However, Janey has made one appearance on US TV by appearing via satellite on CBS' 'The Early Show', but viewers were left baffled by her Scottish accent.
Host David Price quipped: "I'm just getting a translation right now - we'll put that on the web."
Janey's audition has become a huge hit on YouTube and could follow in the footsteps of fellow Scot Susan, who has become an international star.
However, the 49-year-old singing sensation has had to make one sacrifice for her career - she no longer lives with her cat Pebbles because she couldn't give her enough time and devotion.
