Lily Allen brands Susan Boyle "overrated"

Lily Allen has been causing controversy on her Twitter page again after branding Britain's Got Talent contestant, and saviour of humanity during these tough economic times, Susan Boyle "overrated".

The London chanteuse was none to impressed by the plucky Scot's version of Memory from the musical Cats and made her thoughts known via the micro-blogging site: "I thought her timing was off on Sunday - no control, and I don't think she has an amazing voice".

Instead Allen backed 12-year-old singer Shaheen Jarfagholi to scoop the popular reality show's top prize and sing in front of the Queen: "She [Boyle] can sing, 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 kid should win."
