Alice Tan Ridley, Gabourey Sidibe’s mother, just could be the next Susan Boyle. At least that is what she is aiming for. To that I say, you go girl! Not much biological information is known about Ridley at this time, however we will update as more information

Just recently Ridley made a go of it at The Hammerstein Ballroom in New York as she attempted to impress judges Piers Morgan, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne for the hit show America’s Got Talent. So how did she do?

About her performance, Ridley said, “I was pleased with my performance and I think that I did well actually. The judges knew who I was and the audience really supported me, so, I think that I can make it through to the next stage. I’ve been told not to say too much though. People will just have to watch the show to see how I did – I better not say anything else in case I get into trouble!”

So does Ridley think that she could possibly make it big? Well apparently so. She says, “It’s a big break for me and I would like to follow in Susan Boyle’s footsteps and become a star in my own right.”

America’s Got Talent is set to premiere on Tuesday June 1st at 8PM ET. This will be the fifth season of the show.
