Simon Cowell is known for being the tough judge on American Idol. But even he thinks he’s a little too harsh on the contestants sometimes.
Newly-engaged Cowell may be getting soft on us! He recently did an interview with Piers Morgan on his program Life Stories, and talked about his attitude on the Fox show.
He tells Piers, ''There's many, many times where I've watched the show back and I'm absolutely appalled.”
Simon admits that he hasn’t realized how harsh he can come off on camera sometimes. ''You do the show, you're not aware of what's happening in the room outside,” he explains. “You know, somebody just said 'My dog Lassie died yesterday', I'm in a bad mood and, you know, awful, and you see it in that context, it's very, very difficult to watch.''
Speaking of harsh, Simon didn’t hold back his criticism for the guys last night. It’s pretty obvious at this point that the talent level isn’t as high as other seasons. It just makes us think more and more that Simon is leaving at the right time, and X Factor is going to be the new hit show to compete on.
