The X Factor is making its highly anticipated US debut Sept. 21 and Simon Cowell is making his press rounds. He recently chatted with reporters during a conference call, making an interesting American Idol Emmy prediction. Read on to find out what he had to say about AI’s chances at this weekend’s Emmy Awards…
Do yo have The X Factor in your fall rotation? If you don’t, Simon Cowell probably won’t like that very much.
The former Fox American Idol judge is out and about promoting his new show and during a recent conference call with reporters, he couldn’t help but take a stab at his old show.
According to Reality TV World, when asked about AI’s chances of winning Outstanding Reality Competition Series at this weekend’s Emmy Awards and whether he’d feel threatened, Simon Cowell said, “Well I’d find it very amusing that after all these years, the year that I wasn’t on it, it would win the Emmy. I think that would make me laugh, so it probably will.”
So, he’s going with a win based on irony, not merit? Typical, Simon.
If you think he’s going on the defense, think again. “With regards to being threatening, no. I don’t see it as threatening.”
He added, “I think it would be more ironic, but I think either way, I’m going to say if it does win this year, it’s for all the years we did before. So, whatever happens, I’m going to claim the victory. (Laughs) I promise you, I’ll replicate the Emmy with my name on it.”
Of course he’d make his own Emmy! We wonder if he’d be frozen with his fake Emmy when he dies.
Do you think American Idol is going to win the Emmy?
