Anyone remember the Sharon Osborne/Louis Walsh/Glass of Water interface? The one where Louis Walsh threatened to walk out of a show he partially owns? The show that was experiencing a ratings drop against Strictly at that precise time? **** laughable really. Last nights shennanigans were just more of the same. Cowell didn't get to be as wealthy as he is without knowing how to hype crap. He is a master at it and good luck to him. The eye candy is there to be eye candy and basically does what its told.
Nothing wrong with the show, its entertainment, just don't confuse it with real life, which it isn't.
