Simon Cowell has admitted he almost ''gave up'' on 'Britain's Got Talent' after realising how differently he and fellow judges Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden chose their finalists
Simon Cowell nearly "gave up" during this year's 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The music mogul has admitted he thought the show was in danger of turning into a "joke" because the criteria he had for selecting finalists was so different to that of his fellow judges Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden.
He said: "The process became a joke at one point, we were so off the same page. What I thought was good compared to what the other two thought. I almost gave up and said, 'You cast the shows!' Piers is always talking about the underdog, variety, and originality, I look at it as complete and utter rubbish. It's crazy how much we differ."
The 50-year-old star was forced to miss some auditions due to illness and drafted in his fellow 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh to replace him on the panel.
However, after seeing some of the bizarre acts put through to the semi-finals by the Irishman, Simon has vowed not to invite his pal back.
He said: "Would I ever trust Louis again? No!"
