Note to L.A. Reid: the song "Skyscraper" was written and originally performed by Demi Lovato. She's 19 years old. What would you like Drew Ryniewicz to cover, a track from Sesame Street?
Following this 15-year old's emotional performance last night, Reid contrived an argument with Simon Cowell by somehow claiming he continues to select singles for his pupil that are not age-appropriate. Why are you doing songs for old people? he asked in one of the more insane assessments of the season.
Simon responded that his fellow panelist was coming up with "stupid, pointless criticism" and he's right, but there's also little doubt he encouraged this outburst beforehand. Can the judges please stop making this show about them?
Take it away, Drew...
