Sharon Osbourne 'Wants To Make Sam Bailey US Star'
Mentor reportedly thinks 'Screwbo' can become the next SuBo...
The prison officer is the hot favourite to win this year's series - with the grand finale taking place this weekend.
But The Sun newspaper claims that while show supremo Simon Cowell reckons she is only likely to have a hit record in the UK - her mentor Shazza is thinking bigger.
The paper reports that Sharon is planning on getting "Screwbo" to appear on her US chat show The Talk and trying to drum her up a record deal Stateside too.
A source said: "Sharon is fully behind Sam and thinks she can have an amazing global career.
"Everyone is working on the assumption that Sam will win and will bag the record deal with Cowell. While he thinks she can be a big success in Britain, he doesn't see her as having a big global impact like One Direction or Leona Lewis.
"But Sharon thinks Sam could be as big as Susan Boyle around the world and is determined to help her. She wants to take her on her American chat show The Talk and says she will even help introduce her to music executives in the States."
Sam will be competing against Nicholas McDonald and Luke Friend in the final on Saturday, with the winner set to be revealed on Sunday.
Meanwhile the final three have united to perform a Christmas classic for fans...
