Simon Cowell on American Idol Season 8 – “I’m 100% a Guy Will Win this Year”

Simon Cowell, interviewed by ex-girlfriend and Extra correspondent Terri Seymour, is already predicting the winner of next season’s American Idol.

“I’m 100% a guy will win this year.”

Really? 100% a guy will win?   Is he serious? Has he picked a winner already? Or is he just screwing around with the fans…  He also calls new judge Kara DioGuardi, “mouthy, ” but claims, “I’m beginning to warm up to her… I think she knows what she’s talking about.”

Simon sucks, but not enough to deserve this crap. From the Guardian:

Lawyers acting for The X Factor judge Simon Cowell have warned UK newspapers not to harass their client after a tracking device was allegedly found attached to his Rolls Royce last week. Law firm Carter-Ruck sent the warning letter to national newspapers on Friday after consulting with the presenter’s publicist, Max Clifford, who told that “enough is enough”.

According to Clifford, the letter pointed out that the use of a tracking device is illegal and could lead to prosecution. He added that the identity of the journalist who allegedly attached the device is known to him and the individual concerned has been approached.

“We now who he is and we have marked his card and told him to never do anything like that again, ” Clifford said.

Nutty!   Also, in the Extra interview, Simon praises Britney Spears, who performed on his British talent show, The X Factor on Saturday to huge ratings. Is anybody watching this show? Thoughts?

“A star is a star is a star. Incredible. She’s back on top.” Cowell added, “This girl’s got huge star quality… You’ve got to hand it to her. She’s a great performer.” And how would he rate her? “Britney’s back… 9.5 (out of 10)!”

I posted Brit Brits’ performance in Sunday’s Headlines, but in case you missed it, check it out after the JUMP…

Hm.   Not the disaster her MTV performance was, but she’s still lip syncing to lame dance moves.   Not very impressive…

Ugh, Simon tells Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, that he’d love to have Britney on American Idol… Oh, the irony of having a performer lip sync on AI…

He also claims Britney was “in awe” of him. Uhhm…

The real Simon manged to break through for about a second when he said about his break up with Terri Seymour, “I take it day by day, that’s the only thing you can do…”
