Sandra Bernhard has hit out at American Idol judge Simon Cowell, describing him as a "greasy, stinky Englishman".
The comedienne hates the way the show demeans wannabe pop stars, dubbing it "banal and horrible" - but she reserves most vitriol for Cowell.
She says, "He's just pathetic. He's like a greasy, stinky Englishman. He's disgusting."
