  • Lily Allen blasts Susan Boyle's semi-final performance

    It seems no one is safe from Lily Allen‘s tongue-lashings – and now the singer has a few choice words for Susan Boyle: ‘overrated’ being one of them.

    The Fear star took to Twitter to reveal her thoughts on Susan’s semi-final performance, in which she sang Memory from the musical Cats.

    Lily wrote: ‘I thought her timing was off on Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday – no control, and I don’t think she has an amazing voice.

    ‘She can sing, but it’s not about talent with her, is it?’

    Allen had kinder words for 12-year-old singer Shaheen Jarfagholi, who, she said, is more talented than Susan.

    ‘She seems like a lovely lady but, if the show is about talent, then that Shaheen kid should win.’

    Susan defended her rocky start on Saturday by saying she had a cold.

    ‘I said to myself, “Well, you’d better just pick yourself up and keep going”… the audience reaction was really stunning.’

    The final of Britain’s Got Talent will be aired in a live show this Saturday on ITV1.
