Lady Gaga’s talent may have been missed, says Simon Cowell

HollywoodNews.com: Simon Cowell has made a fortune off of finding talent, but he thinks Lady Gaga could have been someone who was passed over just a few years ago.

Cowell, who is gearing up for ‘X Factor,’ revealed that times have changed and so has the way he will judge, states The Kansas City Star. Cowell recently commented that the judges have to be more open-minded due to stars like Lady Gaga.

“With Lady Gaga I was thinking the other day, I saw this picture where she showed up somewhere with a lobster on her head. What would we have said three or four years ago if she had walked into “American Idol” dressed like that?” Cowell questioned, adding that now the judges have to encourage the contestants to be creative.

Do you agree with Simon Cowell? Would Lady Gaga have succeeded on ‘American Idol’?

    I completely disagree with the view of Simon! I think Lady Gaga revived and transformed the pop industry, moreover, she is seen as a phenomenon is the pop industry. And how about the talent … is better than ever! She always surprises!

    Until Lady Gaga I’ve never seen a pop artist be able to write their own music, compose their own music, produce their own music, & then goes out and sings without lip-sync live while performing and dancing at the same time. And the music is just the tip of the iceberg with this woman.

    You find another person that is able to all of that today? Then bring them on the world stage, because like Lady Gaga that is where they belong.
