Simon on Britney: “A Terrific Artist”

Okay, this is only slightly related to “American Idol,” but since it involves Simon Cowell, I had to post it…

Britney Spears will perform “Womanizer” on “X-Factor” November 15th. You’ll recall that “X-Factor” is Simon’s “Idol” equivalent in England.

So why is Britney performing there? Because Simon is a big fan. He told the “UK Daily Mail,” “I'm really excited about it, because she has got her act together and the new record is terrific. She has come back from a very dark place and is a terrific artist.”

Hopefully, there will be plenty of video on YouTube for those of us in the States…

“Boy, don’t try to front. I-I know just-just what you are-are-are…”
