When Susan Boyle makes her debut performance in the U.S. on Wednesday for the finale of America’s Got Talent, it won’t be just her singing that impresses the audience. The Scottish singing sensation will be wearing a stunning, bespoke dress created by British designer Suzanne Neville that is set to “really wow” the crowd. The designer tells PEOPLE exclusively: “The brief was to make Susan look super elegant and so we created a long, classic black gown for Susan to wear.” Three weeks and two dress fittings later, Boyle was thrilled with her one-of-a-kind gown, which has now left the designers store in upmarket Knightsbridge and is on its way to the U.S. with the singer’s stylist. Neville’s rep tells PEOPLE: “Suzanne said she was a delight to work with and seemed very excited about both the dress and the performance.” Neville who is known for her bridal and evening wear, has also designed outfits for previous X Factor contestants, another of Simon Cowell’s talent shows in the U.K, as well as celebrities such as Jerry Hall. –Monique Jessen
