2011: X FACTOR USA; SIMON COWELL IS A BULLY

03 Dec

The X Factor USA is heating up as the final 5 contestants fight it out to the finish.  But the judges are also at war, and during the past few weeks one thing has become more clear…Simon Cowell is a bully! 

It’s amazing to watch just how angry Simon gets when the other judges don’t agree with him whole heartedly.  He has been especially cruel to Nicole, bashing her every move.  She seems on the verge of tears just about every week, after he hits hard with his punches.  But he also recently told Paula to “shut up” when she tried to give her opinion on one of his mentee’s performances.  Since she is used to his “bully mentality”, thankfully she seems more immune to him now. 

L.A. Reid seems to get under Simon’s skin, but he is fearless when taking his abuse. This obviously does not sit well with Simon, because you can practically see steam coming out of his ears when L.A. gives it right back.

The problem with Simon coming across as a bully, is that he hired the judges to offer feedback.  But when they try to do exactly what he pays them for, he pounces on them.  Why doesn’t he just judge for himself and get rid of the others if only his opinion counts?

While I like Simon Cowell, his fame and power has obviously gone to his head.  If he does not back off a bit, he may just find himself all alone next season.  Or maybe he will replace them with weak “Yes Sir” judges who have no backbone and repeat everything he says.  Then he can continue to be a bully and run the show.

Simon, if you want to meet your match, look me up.  I’m up for the challenge and bullies don’t scare me!  And you may want to read this message to bullies…to put you on the right track.  It would be good if you show your judges a bit of respect and let them judge, this is why you selected them.

    I disagree, show me any judges that like it when their singers are criticized by the other judge. Rarely has Simon put down other contestants unlike LA who puts down most unless it is his people. I.E. constantly complaining the some only sing the same stuff when all of his can only do one thing. I feel the show has encouraged this bantering although I personally don’t like it. After all isnt the show about the contestants and not the judges and as far as you volunteering for the job Nicole, LA, and Paula can put with a lot for their million plus salaries you services wont be needed.

      Richard, I agree about with some of your points; sometimes the judges fight amongst themselves so much they forget about the contestants. It really should revolve around the singers, with critique’s that will help. Sometimes the other judges do seem to want to “get Simon back” with their comments which is unfair. However, Simon has said really rude things to how Nicole or Paula have mentored their contestants, which is actually putting them down in an indirect way. In the end, they all really need to get back to what they are supposed to do, and that is help the contestants grow.

    L.A. and Simon are pushing THEIR acts instead of voting for the best singer over all. This is suppose to be fair competition not a personal vendetta. L.A. and Simon, shame on you. Your egos are in the way. But don’t you think for one minute that the american public is not seeing this childish behavior. You both might loose the votes and the dark horse, Josh Krajcik is walking away as a winner……………
