American Idol to have Simon Cowell week

Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell have lunch togetherAmerican Idol is planning to dedicate a week to judge Simon Cowell, according to British paper The Sun. This stems from Cowell — and the rest of the judges — frequently complaining that the contestants have made poor song choices. Host Ryan Seacrest asked Cowell why he doesn’t choose the songs himself, to which Cowell replied that he would love to do that. Each week gets a theme, wherein the singers have to choose a song by a particular composer, group, singer or era. Now, one of the upcoming themed weeks will see Cowell choosing his favorite songs for the contestants. In the meantime, eight wild card contestants compete tonight to see who makes it into the final top 12.

    lol to be honest simon is usually the one who is right, hes brutally honest but he calls out who is going to win early on and always gets it right……..anyways im sure some of the songs will suck but he will make good choices for each singer, i’m looking forward to it!!!

    Cut Simon some slack. Yes, he plays his role as the mean judge to perfection – but if you haters realized that he actually does know what he’s talking about – perhaps you’d save the vitriol for Paula – who can’t find anything wrong with even the worst performance.

    Anyone see Idol last night? I’m thinking Lil Rounds has an excellent chance at winning this! All of them are really really good, but she is exceptional. I thought Adam’s performance was amazing as well.
    My satellite is out, better be back on in time for tonights show!
