As I love music and my friends all know what I feel without music how life would be 🙂 so am sure you wont be surprised if I say I love to watch American Idol as much as any other music related program.
I watch this program for two reasons – one of course music but I get to hear the new talents and that too so many youngsters which makes you feel proud too about the effort that they put in through. Secondly for Simon Cowell hahaha yes! I am a big fan of him.
I actually like his criticism which is direct without going around the bush he speaks straight. His words might be strong but if you take things in positive criticism and a bit with pinch of humor it goes all well 🙂

I some how like him so much that my friend teases me – Don’t call me Simon as I am not …lol!
This post is basically to tell Simon Cowell that I like him and his clear cut thoughts on candidates when they come for audition.
I think many times his remarks are similar what we think about while watching the show. Whether it’s the dressing sense, performance or even voice…may be the words are not as what Simon puts in – I would say that’s Simon color coating to the words 😉

Cowell is notorious for his unsparingly blunt and often controversial criticisms, insults, and wisecracks about contestants and their singing abilities, or lack thereof. He is often parodied in pop culture. His judging is usually blunt but honest. He is known for combining activities in the television and music industries, having promoted singles and records for various artists, including television personalities
In 2006, Cowell signed to two more record-breaking deals. In the USA, he agreed to remain as a judge on American Idol, earning £20 million ($40 million) per season for another 5 years. He also has a deal with FOX which allows his production company to broadcast Got Talent and American Inventor on other networks, but he may not appear on them In 2006, Cowell signed to two more record-breaking deals.

According to AOL News a reporter for the British newspaper The Mirror conducted an interview with Cowell in mid-August where he claimed that he would complete the three seasons remaining on his contract with American Idol and then “that was it”. Cowell explained, “There has to come a point when I will step down from being on camera and remain behind the scenes because you can’t keep doing this forever…I think by [the end of my contract] that the public will be sick to death of me anyway and it will be time to go.”
