Even with all of the success singing sensation Susan Boyle has had over the course of the past year, there are still quite a few knockers around with 'questions and concerns.'

One of these supposed critics is 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge (and former 'American Idol' executive producer) Nigel Lythgoe.

Lythgoe recently made some incendiary comments to the Oxford Union that have just surfaced in the press, and they aren't exactly falttering about the 'Britain's Got Talent' runner-up:

"I don’t think she’s ready for fame. It’s quite frightening. It’ll affect all reality competitions if something happens to her or to someone else who has been made to look like a fool.”

In a cruel turn of phrase Nigel also claimed Boyle was like 'Shrek's little sister,' a comment that was probably meant as a joke but will be met with a cruel reaction regardless.
