Simon Cowell slated Britain’s Got Talent wannabe Jessica Hobson’s performance on last night’s show and branded her dress ‘silly’, leaving the teen in tears.
The music mogul slammed Jessica’s rendition – which saw her belt out Beyonce song Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), accompanied by two dancers – as ‘ridiculous’ and she had to be comforted by presenter Declan Donnelly when she started sobbing on the ITV1 show Britain’s Got Talent.
“Whoever came up with the idea of putting you with the two dancers – it was ridiculous.”
“You would have been better singing on your own and not with the silly dress.” – Simon Cowell said.
Popera singer Jai McDowall and dancer Steven Hall made it through to the final of the talent competition, with Simon opting for the 53-year-old telecoms expert’s hilarious dance medley over 35-year-old singer Edward Reid.
He said: “I’m going to go with what I think the public want – and that’s Steven.”
Scottish star Jai, who performed Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life – went straight to the final after winning the biggest proportion of the public vote.
