While appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight, Simon Cowell addressed Elton John's recent statement claiming reality shows like X Factor "killed talent." Cowell tells Morgan:
- "Well, look. This is somebody who charges what -- a million dollars a private gig? Two million dollars, you know? I don't know whether he's concerned about himself .... and I always want to say to them, 'I tell you what, you just made a million dollars off -- off your last private gig. Go and give it to a bunch of young musicians you care about, put them in the studio. Go and nurture them. Go and spend some time looking after them.' Then I'll buy your argument. They -- they're only worried about themselves."
Find out which recently arrested pop singer will be a judge on the show ... after the jump.
Simon Cowell announced 30-year-old singer Christina Aguilera will be sitting at the judges' table. Gonna get dirrrrrty!
