Simon Cowell, the famous judge from American Idol, is a car racing enthusiast. So, when 60 Minutes profiled him for tonight’s broadcast, and for our Yahoo! News 60 Minutes feature, they took him car racing, and then had three car racing legends critique him in much the same way Simon Cowell critiques hopefulls on American Idol.
Now, you would think Cowell would have been a good sport about this, seen it for the joke that it was, and played along. But in fact, he was unable to take the criticism! I’ll let others interpret what that says about the man.
