Cowell Failed To Launch Hasselhoff's Single

British music mogul SIMON COWELL failed to secure DAVID HASSELHOFF a hit single in the 1990s. The AMERICAN IDOL host, who worked for BMG Records, signed the former BAYWATCH star in the hope of producing his single IF ONLY I COULD SAY GOODBYE, which only reached number 35 in the UK singles chart in 1993. Hasselhoff, who has recently reunited with Cowell on US TV show AMERICA'S GOT TALENT, says, "We tried to break England and the record fell like an egg from a tall chicken... it just completely plopped."
