X Factor: Simon Cowell Admits That Rhydian Roberts Should Have Won
X Factor judge Simon Cowell has admitted that the wrong person won last years X Factor.
Earlier in the year Simon publicly backed Leon Jackson, the winner of the 2007 series, but since his album and single failed to top the charts this months it seems that Simon is losing interest.
In a recent interview with Piers Morgan Simon commented “If you are going to be a star, you need to have steel in your eyes. I don’t think last year’s winner had steel in his eyes.
The Times have also reported that Simon finds Leon lacking and speaking before Roberts’s recent performance of ‘The Impossible Dream’ on The X Factor, Cowell told the newspaper: "Well, I think he’s going to prove something tonight, which is that he should have won.
"I know I’m not supposed to say Rhydian should have won but it’s true. I believe that 100%."
