Simon Cowell Most Proud Of Leona Lewis!

Simon Proud Of Leona Lewis


Simon "secretly has a huge heart and probably really likes to cuddle" Cowell was recently interviewed and point-blankly asked who he was most proud of breaking and producing over the years.

To that, he said without much hesitation, Leona Lewis!

Here's what he said exactly:

"I would say Leona Lewis. When I first met her, she auditioned on the X Factor. She was very shy and didn’t believe in herself and then turned into this fantastic artist by the end. So I guess Leona, because she’s the reason why we do these shows."

Such good reasons, Simon!

He also had some wonderful advice for aspiring kids, which we def have to share with you:

"Ok, let’s assume I’m talking to someone aged between 12 and 16, because this is a new category we’re bringing into the show this year. I would say: Never listen to your parents. And work it out for yourself, who you want to be, and don’t be afraid to be different because this is a time now where being original or being different is paying off. And don’t be afraid of criticism, like the girl [Rebecca Black] who did that “Friday” song, one of the most famous people in the world right now. Most people can’t stand her record but everyone’s talking about her."

What a beautiful way to inspire the young talent, Simon. And it was such a nice thing to say about Rebecca, we're sure she's thrilled!

We can't wait for X Factor!

Bring it like a boss, Simon!

Will U be watching??

    Well of course… She brought in the the most money for Simon. She has a great voice, of course and she was the last good winner of The X Factor. After third season, X Factor became total crap

    Wow who would have ever thought Simon Cowell had a soft side lol o_O

    I think he meant that a kid should never listen to their parents when it comes to career if they want to be a performer. He's right about that. Anyone that has a passion should pursue that passion. In the end, they'll be successful in one way or another.

    I'm starting to believe this show can't possibly live up to all its hype.

    And Leona Lewis has gone about as far as she can in the U.S.–and that ain't very far, either.

    hahaha…He praises "Friday"…Seriously ???
    and why ??? because "the girl is one of the most famous people in the world right now"…hahaha

    His criteria is beyond belief …That guy is known for being a complete sell-out…
    Cowell´s only interest is RATINGS, VIEWS, MONEY…What about the quality ??? content??? daaa?

    Leona Lewis was massive for a while in the UK and I have to admit she has a lot of talent. I can see why Simon would be most proud of her…

    Brits aren't obnoxious. Of course some are but not all of us
