Simon Cowell Blasts Beatles
The music mogul - who once rejected the Spice Girls, the best-selling girl group of all time - says he would have kicked the iconic band off his British TV talent show unless they fired drummer Ringo Starr.
"With Ringo, I'm afraid, we would have said 'bad news'."
Speaking in a US television interview with his 'Britain's Got Talent' co-star Amanda Holden, Simon also revealed what drives him, saying: "I like winning, Amanda. That's what excites me."
Simon is now focusing on the career of Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle, who will perform on the final of 'America's Got Talent' next week.
Her debut album is due for release in November, and is expected to shoot to the top of the charts in America and Britain.
