Prime Simon? (Cowell that is)

I just saw an ad for NZ’s got talent with Simon Cowell talking about NZ talent (sheep jokes and all). Is Simon Cowell coming to New Zealand for our version of the show. If so that would be a huge coup for prime. How much would he cost to bring?

    I highly doubt it, but because it’s his format he probably agreed to do a promo for the show. Plus i believe all of the hosting and judging spots have been filled?

  • ell

    Yeah, I would imagine moclak is right. He’d be far too busy to come down here.

    Also, he has another engagement going on in the UK right at this time anyway 😉 … something called The X Factor, or something like that *giggles*

    Have just heard about NZ’s Got Talent and while Im a fan of the international show, Im terribly disappointed by the choice of judges for our version. Both Miriama and Paul… Talent? I don’t think so. Third in DWTS surely doesn’t count, Paul could hardly string together a sentence on Idol and I’ve never heard of the other guy. So why would Simon want to waste his time?! Go figure

    A good show just lost credibility, NZ’S got talent got the big ups from me until they decided to give the Paul Potts wanabe another chance. clearly the guy could not sing great Opera, however clearly the shows producers see a marketing opportunity by drawing on the audiences comparrison between Potts and this imposter. Come on Prime NZ’S GOT BRAINS

    I think that that Roy Orbeson guy was a total set up

    I know, bit of a let-down, Simon having nothing to do with the show when it’s on!! But didn’t expect him to be!

    Shame he doesn’t have something to do with the pick of our judges though!
    Who is that 3rd judge by the way – the one who doesn’t have much to say? (Guess I can find out if I want to bother to look somewhere.;) )

    Enjoyed those ads though!:)

    I have to agree with the terrible choice of judges? What is their talent? Not judging!
