Simon Cowell Weighs In On New 'American Idol' Judges

Simon Cowell is sharing what he thinks of the new American Idol judging panel, which was just revealed today.

The 57-year-old television personality spoke out after it was revealed that Katy Perry would be joined by Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

“I genuinely don’t care. Look, in my time, I will tell you the real story on what really happened there and it is an interesting story,” Simon told Extra.

He added, “You can’t recreate what we had before, you know, it was me and it was Paula and Randy and Ryan and it was an amazing chemistry there. When I hear all this talk about casting judges, I have to be honest with you, I think this is where they have it wrong – it doesn’t matter about the judges, it is about the contestants and that is why everything has gone the wrong way right now. You know when we cast Idol, it was done so quickly but the only thing that mattered was, ‘Do you have the right people to help you find the stars?’”

See all that Simon had to say in the video below…

    No she is just interviewing him ,she works for Extra and she at lest knows Simon but this was for work.

  • Ulysses Joyce

    Honestly ,I wish Cowell ripped the show a new one .This and the the voice need to be stopped. The music business is not what is was decades ago with the internet age.

    There is no money to be a singer today.Please do not give people false hope.
