Simon Cowell Talks About Boring Season 7
Earlier this week, Simon Cowell made it known that changes - good or bad - will be a-coming.
The American Idol judge told reporters that given Nigel Lythgoe’s departure, he felt it was important to have more input for Season 8. As it was, Cowell felt a bit “bored” with last year’s contest - so this may be his only way of saving the show from sinking any further.
In an interview with reporters, Simon said that despite stories about overbearing stage dads and gay-stripping pasts, he thought Season 7 lacked the proper amount of controversy. By the time of the finale, he was left with no surprises.
“I felt I had known the contestants for years. And the other problem was that they were so media savvy, these contestants, that they never really showed us their true personalities - they were like robots. I didn’t know much more about them at the end than I did in the beginning. I think that it [‘Idol’] could be more interesting and controversial than it was last year - you’re definitely going to see a change and I think it will be an improvement.”
