You know you're dying to know!

Now that the first week of auditions have been completed, Simon Cowell gives us his thoughts on the new season of US X Factor.

On Paula:

"You know I’ve been doing interviews for months, you know we’re talking about the show and getting people to audition and over and over again, whether it was radio interviews or TV interviews, radio interviews, the internet, but mainly the public, I was hearing one message loud and clear. We want Paula on the show. I listened to the public, because they make or break our shows!"

On disagreements with Paula:

"What’s interesting is is she’s snappy. Paula. You know, she doesn’t like something. I’ve forgotten what she’s like. She doesn’t like you to disagree with her. And there were one or two disagreements. But that’s why we wanted her on the show. I think it’s important that everyone has their own viewpoint. But she is good at spotting talent. I mean I thought she was really on it the last two days and I said to her afterwards, this is the best I’ve seen you in a long time."

On Cheryl Cole joining the show:

"There’s no question about it. Most British people that come over to these shows seem to be being mean or rude. Not me, but others… ! But but Cheryl, she’s not like that. I mean, she’s got a lot of fire in her, but you’re going to see a very different type of British judge with her and the audience really warmed to her."

Cheryl’s hair:

"I wasn’t really taken by Cheryl’s hair. It was the equivalent of her using five gallons of hairspray and then standing in the middle of a hurricane! There was a lot of purple going on in the outfits too…

I think the guys won in the style stakes on the first day…!"

On the show's groupwork:

"There is a massive opportunity for groups right now – how they normally happen is a manager puts them together but the best ones are groups who put themselves together. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got it totally right for the first audition if you haven’t got time – we will see potential. But I want to see as many as possible because I’m excited about this prospect. Get your mates together and form a group.

We had one good group but they were put together by their mother– the problem is mothers shouldn’t be putting together a pop groups! They were 12,13, 14– and the group should be put together by themselves. And they definitely don’t get styled by their mother!"

Any songs he's tired of?

"Yes! I’m really close to already banning Grenade by Bruno Mars. It all sounds the same . It used to be I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. Now we have got a replacement."

Ha! We love his honesty! So far the US X Factor sounds EPIC! Can't wait for the fall!

    Warmed to her? The audience booed her on her first day when she said NO to some deserving acts. Sound familiar? She thought one was singing in a different language and a 13 yr old whom she said 'looked liked they learned to dance off the tv'. AND YOU DIDN'T CHERYL?????? Shes a hypocritical disaster.

    Simon Cowell Is not a Respected music producer..HE is a BusinessMan and showbiz personality..The Toss music HE has put onto the British people over the years has been nothing but appalling..When the UK has such amazing talents..The only act of calibre to of come from these grotty talent shows is Leona Lewis..Who I know can sing!..Now He is poisoning the US with HIS mime-A-Long! Miss Cole will be liked ..Not for HER music talents or judging ability..As SHE has neither and No credibility within the industry…..Men will Warm to HER as SHE is a hot peice of ass..Nothing more..
