Lily Allen: Susan Boyle isn’t an amazing singer

Lily Allen has criticised Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle.

The singer was disappointed with the Hairy Angel’s performance of Memory from West End show Cats in the first semi-final.

‘I thought her timing was off on Britain’s Got Talent – no control, and I don’t think she has an amazing voice,’ she writes on her Twitter page.

Lily, 23, reckons 12-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi – who last night also reached the final – has more to offer than Susan.

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