Simon Cowell Mourns Death of 'X Factor' Fav Simone Battle

Simon Cowell is mourning the death of X Factor USA season one contestant Simone Battle, who was a member of his team that year.

Simone was one of Simon‘s favorite contestants that year and despite criticism from the rest of the judging panel, he kept her on his team and brought her into the finals.

“I am so sad to hear about the news Simone Battle has passed away. She was such a fun nice person. It’s such a loss. Rest in peace Simone,” he tweeted.

Cheryl Cole, who was a judge on the show briefly during the audition rounds, also commented on the death.

“Such tragically sad news to hear of the passing of Simone battle.. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones #RIPSimone,” she tweeted.

“I think you’re going to hear a different kind of singer this year. The show is going to look different in terms of the line up,” Simon told The Mirror during the event. “I’ve done the small room auditions already, and then we’re going back to arenas, which is the real test. I’ve already seen 5 or 6 people that have got massive potential. Some of these people, when you put them in front of the big crowds, they fall apart. And on the show this year there are a lot of hurdles to overcome. You’ve got to go from the small room to the arena to the six chair challenge, which I think is a great addition.”
