Britain’s Got Talent 2012: Someone should tell Simon Cowell he is not Michael Jackson … Or Elvis
Someone should tell Simon Cowell he is not Michael Jackson … Or Elvis
On the day that he told the press: “I got a bit too cocky. We got a big wake-up call,” and had now changed, the music mogul proved that in reality he had not.
The night before the auditions the judges had a nice dinner with Ant and Dec, but Simon wasn’t there. A bit strange, as it would have been nice for the new guys to feel welcome.
Ok, maybe he had to do some last minute work before the auditions started, but still.
But then today the auditions started. It was pouring with rain, but the fans had come out in droves to see the judges arrive.
The first to arrive was the, always polite, David Walliams. He was sweet to the audience, shared a kiss and a cuddle and had his picture taken. He brushed off the staff that wanted to cover him with an umbrella as he didn’t ant to let the people down. He didn’t care that his newly styled hair became a mess. The girls obviously went in a little quicker, but were on time.
15 minutes later, no Simon, 30 minutes later, no Simon, 50 minutes – well I think you get it by now.
Where was Simon? Well, he arrived almost two hours later as the king arriving at the castle. Yes, he met and talked to people, but it just sat a little different compared to the others. With him it seemed as if someone royal took a moment of his precious time to talk to his subjects. And not a word on why he was so late.
Also the major placards that were everywhere stating “the king is back” were a bit uncomfortable. No, Simon, you are not the king, no matter how much you may think so.
You are a man, a very lucky man I give you that, that created a few shows that were successful but not original. It was clever, but it doesn’t make you a king. You live of other people’s talent. If you discover a singer someone else has to hone their talent and write their songs, if you find a dancer they have to choreograph their dancing themselves.
Simon has not created these people, they had the talent to sing or dance long before Simon was around. Simon himself does not have an actual talent, except coming up with ideas and be sarcastic on the panel. He is not creative like for example Berry Gordy, whom not only was the founder of Motown, but wrote many of the most famous Motown songs as well (he wrote “I’ll be there” for example!!)
Until the last few weeks I really liked Simon, I thought he was fun. But something in his new attitude just doesn’t sit right with me. Why is he still sneering to Will Young? There was no need. Why did he dump Dannii Minogue for Alesha at the last second just to spite the BBC, that’s just silly. Why does a creative talented man like David Walliams feel the need to look up to him as if he’s God? He is friends with Elton John, George Michael and Roger Moore, people who are stratospheric and have proved themselves for much longer. But the way David talks it seems as if nothing is bigger then Simon and he is just hired to bring “Comic Relief” and has not got enough talent. Having proved himself as an actor, a comic, an accomplished children’s and TV writer and swimmer what talent does he think he’s lacking?
What is it with Simon that hypnotises everyone into babbling yes man? It seems that only Louis Walsh sees him as a normal person.
It is very sad that in the past the major stars were the artists. Michael Jackson was a creative force who build an empire with his talent: singing, dancing, song writing, producing. A perfectionist who went global with the music he created and earned the title of the king.
It’s sad that these days it’s the owner of the label who thinks he is a star in the same right for just paying people to be creative for him.
