Simon Cowell: ‘Last year’s X Factor was very predictable’
Simon Cowell has described last year’s X Factor as “predictable”.

With a judging panel featuring Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne, the competition was won by prison guard Sam Bailey.

Speaking to Weekend magazine, he said: “It’s the talent that really defines the show. Last year, it was OK, but it wasn’t my favourite year.

“I think it was very predictable right from the get-go who was going to win and once the live shows started Sam Bailey was in a different league to everybody else.”

Cowell also said that the final, which was contested by Bailey, Luke Friend and Nicholas McDonald, could have been more exciting.

“Cheryl and I said if we had been mentoring Tamera Foster we would have got her into the final and that would have made it more exciting,” he added.

X Factor 2014: Simon Cowell takes swipe at “idiot” flop judges
X Factor boss Simon Cowell has put out a warning to his judges not to make themselves look like idiots.

Mentioning no names, of course.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming series, Simon claimed that members of The X Factor panel needed to be successful in order to prove their worth.

“To do what I do, the only thing that bothers me is whether or not I am relevant,” he explained. “If you are sitting on these shows and you are not having hit records or hit artists in your real life I think you look a bit of an idiot.

“All I care about is if I can sit on one of these shows and justify why I am there because in my day job I am creating hit artists.

“Otherwise you are just a judge for hire.”
