SIMON COWELL ENDORSES SCOTTY MCCREERY ... sort of
Idk if we care what Simon thinks, but I will post it anyways.
Now that Simon Cowell is no longer on "American Idol," he apparently isn't even bothering to keep up with who is currently on the show. Just how in the dark is he at the moment? Speaking to New York Magazine, Cowell admits that he has seen this season "once" -- and that Scotty McCreery is really the only contestant he remembers:
"The only person I can remember is the young kid with the deep voice, the country singer. But I'd be lying if I said that I knew enough about any of the contestants to have an opinion."So is this really an endorsement of the youngster? It depends on how you look at it -- in the case of Cowell, it may merely be good that Scotty is finding a place somewhere in his memory. Scotty has been the favorite of many thus far -- including the audience. He has yet to be in the bottom three, and has also not been met with too much in the way of harsh criticism. (Then again, the judges have been nice to pretty much everyone all year.)
