Simon Cowell is reportedly livid with the ''mediocre'' contestants in the 'Britain's Got Talent' semi-finals
Simon Cowell has an "issue" with the judgement of the 'Britain's Got Talent' panel.
The music mogul - who joined the semi-final stage of the competition this week - can't understand why Amanda Holden, David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre put some acts through to the second round but blocked the progression of other more talented performers.
After watching Irish dancers Up and Over It, he reportedly fumed: "I watched the show. There were other dancers you didn't put through which should have gone through instead of this kind of thing. I have an issue with it."
Simon, 51, was said to be in a "foul mood" at the end of Monday (30.05.11) night's show.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Cowell told everyone he felt the acts were very mediocre.
"Had it not been for little Ronan Parke he would have been tearing his hair out. No wonder he is going grey. He also claimed most of the acts' auditions were actually better than what they did on stage in the live shows.
"The only thing he did like was the diversity because it wasn't just a show full of singers and dancers. He was in a foul mood though."
