Simon Cowell Feels Like He Was "Wrong" With Chezza For X Factor

Simon Admits Guilt

It takes a big man to take responsibility for his mistakes, let alone what some people view as a mistake for entire show.

When asked to expand upon the decision to send Cheryl Cole packing, Simon admits that it was probably a wrong decision:

I worked with her for years in the U.K., and she was sensational. We shot a couple of days, and I just had a feeling — and I was probably wrong - and I think she would disagree with this. And I thought she would be more comfortable on the U.K. show, and we spoke to her.

Initially she agreed to it, and we were way into a negotiation. And it all went public and it all went horribly wrong. And she was offered to come back to the show. And she didn't want to go on that. It was one of those decisions you have to make as a producer.

This doesn't mean, however, that he's unhappy with Nicole!

Either way we are SO ready to watch us some X Factor!!

    They threw her under the bus.

    Before reading the post, Perez, your subject title makes it sound like he felt he was wrong with having Cheeza sign up for X-Factor US in the first place. Which is probably the reality here.

    We don't need England's trash here; we have enough of our own. And this chick is nothing but chav. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  4. 4

    It seems to me that Simon gave her a job, and she did not live up to the expectations of the job. Simple.

    jesus! did he have a stroke!? what the heel is wrong with his face!

    He's so not good looking. He thinks that torso of his is awesome. He looks like a guy that once weighed in at 600 pounds that shed it all in a day. How can he wear those shirts in public. The problem is he has too many yes-men around him. Nobody is going to tell him what a clown he looks like. Oh well.

    umm I wouldn't necessarily define this as "taking responsibility for his mistakes". It sounds more like "well she went back and forth and changed her mind… and then the media spun it out of control…" but I will say that it does sound plausible.Accent or no, I'd prefer Cheryl . I personally don't care for Nicole.

    I think he should rightfully trust his instincts when it comes to business. Girls her age like to twist things into a cause, and especially when they've had a taste of diva-dom. She may have been miffed, but should have understood, acted professionally and risen to the equal or even better offer in the U.K. I think she wanted the U.S. market, and didn't care about Simon.

    Sooo Simon, stop armchair quarterbacking this shiz and just say " I'm sorry that Cheryl was treated so badly…that would sho a lil integrity

    what is wrong with his eye?

    one of the thinks that made Simon popular with audiences (not to mention a very rich businessman) is the fact that the majority of time his instincts are dead on!

    She was given a massive opportunity and she choaked. Simple.

    Thank God the leftard Cheryl Crow was kicked off! No one wants to see or cares about this moronic imbecile anymore! Since she only uses one sheet of toilet paper to wipe her fat @ss, she is a smelly cow!

    Re: Hate Low Class People – Sheryl Crow has revealed in an interview that a wild rumor about her using only one square of toilet paper per visit was "part of a comic routine" and was taken out of context when the media jumped on the story last year."They took something that was part of a comic routine we were doing on the Global Warming college tour, and set it up as it if was something that I believed in, to embarrass me," Crow explains.
