LOS ANGELES — Susan Boyle is bringing her act to America.

The Scottish sensation of “Britain’s Got Talent” will make her U.S. TV debut on the season finale of “America’s Got Talent,” according to a person close to the series. The person, who lacked authority to release the information, spoke Friday on condition of anonymity.

The dowdy Boyle surprised viewers of “Britain’s Got Talent” with her soaring rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream.” But she herself was taken aback by her sudden fame, which she has said hit her like a “giant demolition ball.” She was hospitalized for exhaustion after the British show.

The two-part finale of “America’s Got Talent” airs Sept. 14 and Sept. 16 on NBC, both at 8 p.m. EDT.
