We love it when this honest Brit comes out to play!
Simon Cowell was in a great mood chatting with us on the red carpet at last night's X Factor finale part one!
In addition to talking about his favorite moments this season and what he expects to see next year, the daddy-to-be also spoke candidly about the sad departure of the ultra-adorbzies Demi Lovato!
You'll never guess how long he's already known she was on the way out!
Ch-ch-check out the whole AH-Mazing response in the EXCLUSIVE! interview (above)!
And don't forget to tune into X Factor tonight — a winner will finally get crowned!
