The OG Judge on American Idol is not interested in the show anymore. Simon Cowell had an interview with The Hollywood Reporter where he spoke on his thoughts on the show that brought him to fame.
“I’m genuinely not interested,” he said when asked if he’s been watching the show. “I think when we were on it years ago, it was a fun show. It was different, it was kind of naïve, lots of surprises…. I kind of think we’ve been there, I’ve been there, time for something new.”
“And we have some good singers on the show this year. Interestingly, on Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent, I think we get better singers on the Got Talent shows than the other singing show. I don’t know what it is,” he added.
America’s Got Talent has returned to NBC and is expected to do extremely well in the ratings for the network.
