Simon Cowell got his claim to fame by being the harsh judge on American Idol for eight years starting in 2002. Cowell is also the creator for The X Factor and Got Talent franchises. While often very blunt he has been responsible for creating some amazing talent like One Direction, Leona Lewis and Fifth Harmony.
Most recently he was about to start his own talk show, but he decided just moments away from the start of filming that it wasn’t for him, and he couldn’t talk that much. Well, whenever he spoke on the shows he judged we got a kick out of it so I’m sure he would have done very well.
