Simon Cowell: Will Christina Aguilera Judge X-Factor?
Former American Idol host, Simon Cowell has dissed Christina Aguilera’s vocals during her Super Bowl performance of the National Anthem. Aguilera has received a lot of criticism for what many considered a poor performance; even Aguilera spoke out regretfully about having made lyrical errors. However, Christina also said that she hoped her performance would be judged by the heart that she put into it-something Simon Cowell clearly wasn’t impressed with.
Cowell, who is now involved in the American version of The X-Factor, was interviewed by Fox about Aguilera’s less-than-perfect performance.
Simon Cowell spoke honestly about Christina’s vocals and lyrical mistakes, without trying to sugar coat things. However, he did take Aguilera’s feelings into account as well, saying, “Well look, obviously she is regretting it now. She must be. I’m listening to it here in London and it didn’t sound great to me. But to mess the words up? Not great…But I always say this, this is what happens when you perform in front of an audience – even someone as experienced as Christina. You can get it wrong. That was bad.”
Christina Aguilera is also rumoured to be a potential host in the new X-Factor series. The singer appeared on the UK show to take part in a duet during last season’s finale.
