Simon Cowell really knows his stuff

Further evidence that Simon Cowell's field of expertise is selling music to people who don't buy records, rather than actually knowing about music: he knocked back Mika:

"I managed to get a demo to him before he became a household name. He hadn't done any of the POP IDOL stuff.

When I walked in and played my song, he said, 'You've got a good voice but your songwriting... you may as well not bother.'"

Cowell, of course, tends to need his acts to have had six or seven hours of solid TV time before he can flog any of their records.
