American Idol judge Simon Cowell denied accusations that he disrespected the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings by rolling his eyes after contestant Chris Richardson expressed sadness over the incident. Said Cowell, “I was saying to Paula, `What does he mean, he sang nasally on purpose?’ […] Then my eye rolled, given what I was saying to Paula.”
We don’t mean to be rude but that excuse was just dreadful.
‘American Idol’ judge Simon Cowell claims that he’ll leave the show if Sanjaya Malakar wins the competition. Said Cowell, “He’s not going to win. I won’t be back if he does!” While Malakar’s odds of winning appear to be slim, Cowell seems to underestimate America’s history of voting for unqualified candidates.
