“Simon Cowell has brought a new meaning to talent shows and has made it a mega platform for people to show their talent and tell their tales,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “His honest, critical evaluation of talent has won him first place to fans’ hearts, and a star on our Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Leron Gubler will be accompanied by surprise guest speakers to unveil Cowell’s star. The event will be live-streamed on www.walkoffame.com.
The former American Idol judge is the creator of the X Factor and Got Talent franchises. Artists he has helped launch to stardom include One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Cabillo Cabello, James Arthur and Grace Vanderwaal.
