Britain’s Got Talent star Shaheen Jafargholi will reportedly join songbird Leona Lewis on tour next year.
Simon Cowell, who met 12-year-old Shaheen at his first audition and mentored Leona during her 2006 X Factor victory, is plotting a 14-date world tour — featuring a Garden of Eden theme — that will star the preteen sensation and the “Bleeding Love” hitmaker.
Shaheen, a native of Wales, shot to fame earlier this year with his rendition of The Jackson 5′s “Who’s Loving You” on BGT last spring. He later went on to perform the song at the King of Pop’s public memorial service.
A source tells The Mirror: “Simon is convinced Shaheen can be a global superstar.”
