Simon Still Fuming Over Louis’ Decision To Kick Out Ashley

Simon Cowell has apparently commented to the Mirror about Louis’ decision to kick Ashley out and keep Robert, saying:

“I’m angry because I thought Ashley was very good and don’t believe he should have gone. I was annoyed because I don’t believe you should be tactical when you vote in this show. I would even kick my own acts out, if necessary. He knew that Ashley had a much, much better chance of going forward in the show. I called him spiteful because he used something personal against me to affect someone’s career and I don’t think that is acceptable.”


  1. build a bridge …and get over it simon!

  2. Simon is so right. Ashley is amazing. A lesson to be learnt Louis: Do not mix business with pleasure!!

  3. Simon talks with forked tongue. Who was it last year who mentored those dreadful irish girls and then voted for them against Maria and left it to Louis to banish her with the ‘irish vote’!!!

  6. Simon, GET OVER IT! Louis did not vote for robert to stay in coz ashley was a threat, but coz ashley was NOT great, would not make a good recording artist, and as you sooooo often say, ‘would be found in a hotel bar doing late night/early morning shows.’ So STOP going on about it.

  8. Ashley will definitely sell records, but he’s not an X-Factor finalist - he’s too limited and too undisciplined. He should be off doing his own thing and not worrying about singing songs that he can’t sing properly. He lacked the emotional experience to really think about what the less appropriate songs were saying. He was just lost at sea with The Winner Takes it All. I think he was so preoccupied with remembering the words that he forgot about the feelings in the song. Besides, it’s a song about humility and having failed, something I doubt he has the emotional maturity to ‘get down’ with.
    Simon’s disappointment is a bit self-indulgent, really. I mean, just sign the lad and get some hit records out! If The Macdonalds win I bet Ashley will still have the last laugh - just like Lemar.

  9. maybe it is time to change the judges, Simon is the only judge who gives constructive comments and criticism, whether it’s his own artist or one of the others, where as Sharon and Louis are just vindictive.
    they are only interested in keeping their own artist in the contest regardless of their performance. Sharon and Louis’ behaviour last week when Ashley was voted out was absolutely appalling!! it’s time to say goodbye to these two churlish spiteful little people.

  11. Simon tries so hard for his acts,but he’s gone down hill with them, he flew off to America, which was bad,cos they didnt no what to do, and I didnt like the fact that he said that ashely was a threat and far better than Robert, cos he sooo isnt Robert deserved to be there even if he’s not there now,but he’ll still sell records. Sharon is a bit too faced, like one minute she loves Simon, and the next she’s slagging him off, but its entertaining to watch, and she’s a good laugh and cares so much for all her contestants

  12. Ashley had something about him though don,t you think?

    But when he was on stage it was like he couldn’t give a sh*t and let us know he didn’t.
    He seemed fascinated by the ceiling though, maybe there was a mirror up there!

    He did have some good sound in his voice , but he needs ooodles of vocal work. He could be a good baritone with training.

    Not a star yet. But you never know we might see him next year!

    Wonder how many votes Ashley got when he was in the bottom two? More than Robert I wonder?
