“Britain’s Got Talent” is again in the eye of another controversy. In a recent blog in the social networking site Twitter, Lily Allen had criticized Susan Boyle as an “overrated” singer. Incidentally, Boyle has reached the finale of this immensely popular and must-watched TV show in England. She fought and struggled against other singers and has ultimately reached the final rounds of this show. But Lily Allen’s criticism and comments questioning the merit of this singer has raised many eye-brows. Allen had said that though Boyle can sing, she could never really be a finalist because of her limited vocal expertise. Allen’s favorite is the 12 year old singer Shaheen Jafargholi, who is still struggling to reach the last round of “Britain’s Got Talent”.

Allen claims that Boyle’s timing is all wrong, she has no control over her voice modulations; moreover, she does not have an extraordinary voice, as claimed by others. “Overrated” is the term that she uses throughout the post to describe this contestant. As a matter of fact, Allen is not the only one to have criticized this middle aged singer. In a report “The Sun” had also claimed that Boyle had disturbed a lot of people while practicing for the show, with her unpleasing voice. A hotel guest is quoted to have‚ said that her “cacophony” had kept him up all day!

However, Susan Boyle has had her share of supporters too, even among the celebrities. The Hollywood couple, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, was a part of the‚ crowd that cheered her on during the competition. Moore and Kutcher have‚ always been staunch supporters of Boyle even in the face of all criticism.
