Most of them over five, at least. We’re a family out there on the road and we have a great time. And like any family, especially when you’re on a small bus together for 12 months of the year, there’s, every now and then, a little aggravation here or there, but we all love each other out there.” – Read more at PopCulture.com

Simon Cowell Recalls Camila Cabello’s First Steps to Pop Stardom – The singer, who traveled to North Carolina from her hometown of Miami, Florida with her entire family, had been placed as a “reserve,” meaning that if time ran short, her audition would be cut. And on this specific day, the producers told Cabello that they were running short on time. Cabello was certain that her chances of getting on the show had been definitively shot down. But Cowell, the show’s salty judge and co-creator, took her destiny into his own hands.

I’m probably back in my seat in five minutes,’” Cowell recounted telling her. “And she comes down, auditions, and she blows the roof off. Literally, I mean that was it.” – Read more at Variety
