Simon Cowell Gives Blue The Boot

Acid tongued AMERICAN IDOL judge SIMON COWELL has slammed British boy band BLUE for their latest chart attempt - saying it should be their last.

The outspoken music mogul is appalled at Blue's new single CURTAIN FALLS - claiming it made him feel "nothing".

Cowell says, "I think this will be their last single. DUNCAN (JAMES) is testing his solo career. If the sales on his singles go up, Blue will definitely split up."

The British pop guru also blasted hunky bandmember James as "utterly appalling" after his duet I BELIEVE MY HEART with KEEDIE, but surprisingly had more praise for his bad-boy bandmate LEE RYAN.

Cowell claims, "Lee's the biggest talent. Duncan is just BUTLINS (British holiday camp). I thought that last single he did was utterly appalling."
