Susan Boyle could be getting ready to follow in Cher and Celine Dion footsteps by playing in Las Vegas.

The Internet singing sensation is being lined-up to play at Planet Hollywood by American Idol guru Simon Cowell.

Cowell – who is a close friend of the casino’s owner Robert Earl – believes that Boyle would be a sensation on the world famous Vegas Strip and rake in millions of dollars in the process.

A source told the Evening Standard newspaper in the UK: “Simon is confident that Susan will be a huge success in America. She is already a household name despite the coming second on the show, and she is now being lined-up to play a number of dates in Las Vegas.  The Planet Hollywood bigwigs have been following Susan since she burst on to the scene and are keen to give her a run at the hotel.”

The singer is preparing to play at The Britain’s Got Talent tour in Edinburgh, Scotland, as her management team go into overdrive about planning her schedule.

Cowell has revealed that he is going to record an album with Boyle reportedly of Broadway hits with an orchestra in the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, Boyle seems to have recovered following her stay at The Priory Clinic in London after receiving a standing ovation when she sang in Glasgow, Scotland, on Monday night on the BGT tour.

Multi-millionaire Cowell hit back at claims that he exploited the fragile Scottish performer by exposing her on Britain’s Got Talent.

He said on British television show GMTV: “No one ever put a gun to her head and said you’ve got to enter the show.  I sat down with her and said: Look, if this is getting too much for you, you don’t have to go into the final. No-one’s going to force you – you do whatever you want .  And she looked me in the eye and said, No, I want to win this competition.”
