Simon Cowell has been sharing his thoughts on the new American Idol judging panel.
The 57-year-old music mogul and one of the original judges on the American Idol panel has spoken out after it was revealed that Katy Perry would be joined by Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
“I genuinely don’t care. Look, in my time, I will tell you the real story on what really happened there and it is an interesting story,” Simon told Extra.
He added, “You can’t recreate what we had before, you know, it was me and it was Paula and Randy and Ryan and it was an amazing chemistry there. When I hear all this talk about casting judges, I have to be honest with you, I think this is where they have it wrong – it doesn’t matter about the judges, it is about the contestants and that is why everything has gone the wrong way right now. You know when we cast Idol, it was done so quickly but the only thing that mattered was, ‘Do you have the right people to help you find the stars?’”
