“He has a right to criticize who has a heart to help”

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 🙂

“Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.” ~ Winston Churchill

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 😉

Simon Phillip Cowell (born 7th Oct 1959) is an Emmy-nominated English artist and repertoire (“A&R”) executive for Sony BMG in the UK and a television producer, more commonly known as a judge on television programmes such as Pop Idol, The X Factor, American Idol and Britain’s Got Talent. He is also the owner of the television production and music publishing house Syco.
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.”

But yes the program is interesting because of Simon, that’s what I feel :). I am sure many of them love Simon for what he is and I think one should always pay attention to critics as well ;).

He has a good side too which media never brought up. Cowell has been involved in charity work for many years without getting much attention from the media. He supports children from The Association Of Children’s Hospices and invites them backstage to the screenings of The X Factor. When he can, he stops by some of the hospices to visit the children. He also supports animal rights and has appeared in a video for PETA in which he reminds drivers of the cruelty to animals that can occur when their pets are locked in cars in the summer.
In December 2003, Cowell published a book, I Don’t Mean to Be Rude, But …. In it, he told the whole story of his childhood, his years working in music and experiences on Pop Idol, Pop Stars Rivals, and American Idol, and finally, his tips for being successful as a pop star.

Was that too much for Simon…. Lol!
