SIMON TO THE RESCUE

Even though Cowell is a notoriously hard task-master, there was one instance in which he rescued a singer the rest of the panel had rejected.

When Andrew Scholz, 18, stepped on to the stage, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato, and Paulina Rubio- who together with Cowell comprised the judge's panel- were clearly impressed by his good looks.

When Scholtz started singing, the three ladies quickly changed their minds. They were unimpressed by his performance of Alex Clare’s pop song, “Too Close”, even though Cowell was seemingly enjoying it.

The three women were unanimous in their criticism, but Cowell disagreed.

He felt that the song choice wasn’t right for Scholz, and suggested he sing “A Little More You” by the country band Little Big Town.

Scholtz nailed the song with his "country voice" and the ladies had to take their disapproval back, which left Cowell gloating more than a just a little.
