American Idol: Simon Cowell on Season Seven
The audition portion of American Idol - arguably the best part of the whole bloody show - will begin airing next week, and judge Simon Cowell (my personal favorite) will no doubt light into singers with his usual acerbic tongue. But Cowell says even his criticisms are meant to be constructive.
Speaking from London (don’t worry - he’ll be Stateside in time for Idol’s seventh season), Simon explained it all in an interview: after listening to bad singers for seven years, it can all get rather trying - and sometimes, words probably do come out a little harsh. Really? Tell me more. I can’t wait to listen to the Dreamcrusher at work.
The host said this year’s crop of talent is strong, young and more interesting. Than who - Sanjaya? That’ll be hard to beat. Cowell called the cast “fresh” and “memorable,” but admittedly they don’t have a tough act to follow.
The judge went on to say that he might be finished with Idol when his current contract expires in two more years. Good - maybe then he’ll do his own show. That’s something I’ve been waiting on for years.
