The bitter tongued American Idoljudge, Simon Cowell, may lose his mean reputationonce this story gets out. After getting one of the contestant’s jobs back after she quit it to pursue a career in the music industry, he has proven that he indeed has a heart.
During American Idol season 8 auditions, contestant Adeloa Adegoke, 18, was a little over-zealous and quit her job because she was so confident that she would make it to theHollywood round. When the singer failed to impress the judges during her performance, she told Simon Cowell that she had quit her job.
Simon Cowell told the American Idolproduction staff that they should get the young lady’s boss on the phone and they did just that! After the call was set up, Simon Cowell said, “I am phoning to see if she can have her job back. I think she’s terrific.”
Awww, nowwasn’t that a sweet thing for him to do?
