Simon Cowell pampers x factor contestants

Aww! Simon Cowell, you shouldn't have.

The creator of X Factor appreciates the 160 contestants singing their hearts out so much that he dropped $500,000 to upgrade their Miami hotel accommodations.

Instead of warming up their vocals in a "regular" hotel, the singers competing for the 32 spots on the show will staying at the exclusive Mondrian Miami South Beach Hotel.

To make the man known for being a meanie look even nicer, he's even paying for all of their meals during the audition process!

That's a pretty nice gesture from the guy who regularly berated auditions while judging American Idol.

Maybe he got a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Reality Competition Past, Present and Future last week! LOLz!
