X Factor 2014: Simon Cowell says Gary Barlow was a rubbish judge, basically
X Factor boss Simon Cowell has taken a bit of a swipe at the show’s former judges.

After announcing his return to the panel last week, Simon more or less branded last year’s panel a bit rubbish.

The music mogul instead reckoned the line up of judges that included himself (obviously) and Cheryl Cole worked a lot better.

“The judges weren’t as good as we were and that’s just the truth,” Simon said. They didn’t do a bad job, I just think we did a better job.

“The big, big year for X Factor was the final year we did it — 2010 — and I’d love to get the show close to that again.”

X Factor boss Simon went on to complain that other judges on the show have failed to uncover stars.

He explained: “Being a judge is like running a record label. Some people are better at it than others. The one thing I’m confident about, though, is that we can find the talent here.
