Music mogul Simon Cowell has admitted that he has made some mistakes with The X Factor USA. He revealed that he was a bit cocky about the launch of the show here in the States. He also made a prediction that the show would get twenty million viewers.
In a new interview, he said, “I’m cocky by nature. But I’d come off a massive final in the U.K., I had adrenaline, I couldn’t wait to put the show on here and it’s gonna take a little bit longer than I thought.”
He’s still rooting for his remaining contestant, Melanie Amaro, but said that he made some bad song choices during the show. He said, “I learned that I’m not American – that was a big factor of where I got things right and where I got things wrong.”
When speaking about Melanie’s final song, he added, “The song was too British and too old for her — I’m trying to think American.”
