Leona Lewis live X Factor-

Simon Cowell is an English reality television judge, entrepreneur, philanthropist, film, record, and television producer. He is most recognized as a judge on the British TV talent competition series Pop Idol, The X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent, and the American TV talent competition shows American Idol, The X Factor, and America's Got Talent. Cowell owns the television production and music publishing house Syco.

As a judge, Cowell often makes blunt and controversial comments, including insults and wisecracks about contestants and their abilities.

When it came to Leona Lewis, Cowell's insults magically vanished, and his temperment towards her after she would sing was: stunned.
