Simon Cowell on the Ellen Degeneres Show – VIDEO

Simon Cowell

  • Simon thinks it will come down to song choice, and for that reason, David Cook will win.
  • He explains that he wouldn’t have said that 9 or 10 weeks ago, but that over the weeks, Cookie had two or 3 performances that were “staggeringly” good, while Archie sorta flat lined.
  • Simon doesn’t think Archie has the personality to be the American Idol. He thinks he would struggle a bit on the interview. Simon thinks he’s been “trained to do this over a period of time” and that he really hasn’t experienced life.
  • Simon has seen worse stage parents on Idol. He said he had “mothers practically attacking him after the show.” He says Jeff needs to relax a bit.
