Simon Fuller, founder of XIX Entertainment and creator of global sensation American Idol, received the 2,441st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.
The star studded event (he's responsible for launching countless successful careers) was held in front of the W hotel, and attendees included: Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony, Victoria Beckham (Fuller created the Spice Girls), and Idol winner Carrie Underwood, who told the honoree after he won, "You deserve this more than anyone I know."
Fuller gushed at the ceremony after receiving his honor: "Whenever I see that star, I won't see my name, I'll see all names of the people I've worked (with) and all those amazing artists and people that have helped me achieve this stuff."
Fuller has also managed the careers Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse, Idol champs Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and David Cook, and soccer stud David Beckham.
