Well who woulda guessed it!
Simon Cowell admitting he's cocky….whaaat?!?!
But he does, and he says it's just his nature - which is why he thought X Factor would start out as huge a hit in the States as it was across the pond.
But he believes in the series and the next season, saying it's only gonna take some time for X Factor to blow up into the phenom it is in the UK!
Watch the video above. Seeing Simon admitting his cockiness is fun enough!
