Let's give Simon Cowell some credit

After all the slagging off of Simon Cowell this week, let's at least give him some credit.

It takes an enormous amount of hard work to take a group of largely talented people, give them an all time classic song, and yet still produce a a cover version of that song which genuinely is appalling.

Still, Simon Cowell has managed to achieve this through his release of the X Factor contestants cover version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

And brother Liam put it in his own inimitable style: "I know all about annoying f****** brothers. But nobody comes close to them. How do you not smack them? What the f*** is happening to British music?" Liam, who was at South Kensington's Gore Hotel, added: "And what are those things on their heads?"
