Lily Allen: Susan Boyle is Overrated

by at . Comments

Susan Boyle, the 48-year-old Scottish singer who has taken a nation by storm upon advancing to the final round on Britain’s Got Talent, hasn't won over the whole UK.

Despite Boyle's beating out seven other performers belting out "Memory" from the musical Cats to reach the finals, English songstress Lily Allen was unimpressed.

"I thought her timing was off on Britain’s Got Talent on Sunday - no control," the 24-year-old songbird opined on her official Twitter page.

"And I don't think she has an amazing voice."

Allen then made a comment that appeared to suggest that Susan Boyle is a mere gimmick: "She can sing," she said, "but it's not about talent with her, is it?"

She "seems like a lovely lady but, if the show is about talent, then that [Shaheen Jafargholi] kid should win." Who do you think has got more talent in Britain?

The Britain’s Got Talent finale competition takes place this Saturday.

Now I'd like to hear Susan's critique of Lily, especially since I have no idea who Lily is.

Susan Boyle can sing! Lily Allen did write that! Mandy took the time to write down, what was written on Lily Allen''s twitter page, but,, she was stupid enough to write down, only what she wanted to know! That can only mean, that she did not check, the twitter page, no, she only wrote down, what was written in the article. Lily Allen also included, that Susan Boyle seemed like a lovely person. Most of the twitter comment was about, how unfair, the judgment can be. You see people that don't like her, won't read her information, because they don't care unless it's negative. People that write about her put a twist on things, to get you're interest(..Yeah, yeah, you know that!!) But you'll show up when the story is something bad about Lily Allen, (>>It's a matter, of who cares about the facts as long as I can bash her kind of thing. ) Then you'll go back to the I don't give a sh*t idea, because you're an idiot.

Lily Allen's comments are a perfect case of 'pot calling the kettle black'...she is big here in Britain but I've yet to understand why. It's so funny that you guys haven't heard of her, and when you do hear her you're not impressed...I feel like I've been the only one sitting here wondering what the hype over her is all about!

I've never even heard of Lily Allen, so I did some checking. I listened to her on youtube and found her singing to be mediocre at best and I looked up some of her "songs" and found the "lyrics" to be total filth which apparently she has written herself. On Amazon most of her songs are labeled "explicit" with a few that have been cleaned up. Someone who writes and sings filth is not qualified to judge someone with the amazing talent of Susan Boyle. Lily, you aren't even fit to shine Susan's shoes!

Ummm. Who is Lily Allen? This trick is a "star" because she got on her knees in the right studio. If she had any class, and if she were truly an artist, she'd be gracious and wish this obviously talented woman the best of luck. Amy Winehouse may be a talentless crackhead, but she sure got this bee-atch's number straight off!

"I thought her timing was off on Britain’s Got Talent on Sunday - no control, and I don't think she has an amazing voice." As if Britain's little 'darling' can do any bloody better!! Lily Allen couldn't beat Susan in a singing contest to save her life! Let alone be deserving of Susan's worldwide popularity and fame. If Lily believes she is more talented than Susan, she is definitely taking Amy Winehouse's path and going on ecstasy. Believe it if you want 'darling' but as if anyone in the right mind would listen to you rant about people more talented than you. Cue Amy Winehouse.

Who is Lily Allen? I have never heard anithing about her in Norway. Susan Boyle has lots of fans all around the world, i dont think Miss Allen has it in her, she cant be happy for a raising star, so we should not stand by her in any way either.
