Wow! This is very surprising to me! After watching her on the American version, I could swear that Simon pretty much hated her guts. Doesn't he have anything to do with the British version of the show? I know he is not a judge there, so maybe that made a difference. It doesn't sound like the author of the article or the people commenting after it ever watched her or even read about her judging on the show here, although the first few comments about her at Brit auditions describe her pretty well (boring, too nice to make any real criticism). Sounds like the Brits are in for a real treat (not!). Good luck to them . . .
