It’s down to the final five contestants on this season of American Idol. This has been one of the most talented group of singers the show has ever seen and it’s getting harder to determine a clear winner. Ever wonder what Simon Cowell thinks?
Simon recently told ET, “I would put my money on Adam and Danny … It is going to be Adam and somebody. I would like to see Adam and Danny because I think they are the best two singers, and at the end of the day that is what should happen.”
He also commented on the controversial choice of bringing on a fourth judge by saying, “I like Kara. The more I get to know her, the more I like her. You can’t make the same show forever. You have got to make changes because people will get bored. So anything that promotes change, I will push for.”
And what about all those rumors we keep hearing about Simon quitting American Idol after this season? He said, “Maybe I did speak a little too openly in the beginning. I hinted at [at leaving] and then people started asking me questions. If you asked [FOX], they would say the same thing. We always said there would be a finite time. I have had a good eight years. We never thought we would get beyond one season. I can honestly say it is the best eight years of my life, but you get to a point where you go, ‘Maybe it is time for a change.’ It has got nothing to do with the relationship with FOX, because we get along brilliantly. We haven’t even sat down [to negotiate]. I may be premature. They may say, ‘We don’t want you.’”
Well, I highly doubt that will happen.
