Early Night for X Factor USA’s Simon Cowell!
He may have seemingly had every reason to celebrate, after another successful season of X Factor USA, but 54-year-old Brit Simon Cowell made sure his exit from the LA wrap party this evening was less than full-on, leaving early and by a back exit.
The media and music mogul was seen leaving the party at Mixology 101 on West Third Street with very pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman just hours after the act he was looking after took the crown in the TV talent signing series.
Their departure followed the end of the third season, won by Cowell’s act, Alex and Sierra, who receive a $1mn recording contract with Sony. The 22-year-old lovebird from Florida took the title after beating loveable Carlito Olivero, 24, and hard-up single dad Jeff Gutt, who’s 37.
No wonder Cowell said he felt like Christmas had come early – he’ll also be making a fortune out of them.
Also performing at the final were British boy band One Direction, who came third in the UK version of the contest in 2010 – they are now estimated to be worth around a staggering $99mn.
