We have to give a Happy Birthday shout out to everybody’s (well……most everybody) favorite judge….Simon Cowell! Man I tell ya, to hear this guys story! Got fired from his job, moved back in with his Moms & came up with the idea for the talent show “X Factor”. It became a hit show in the UK, then he brought a slightly different version here & called it “American Idol” which was mega successful! Not to mention it produced many stars (Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, etc). Enjoy your day Mr. Cowell!
