If Simon Cowell were a contestant on The X Factor, Simon Cowell the judge would most certainly boot him off the stage.
After 56-year-old Russ Pouliot from Littleton, CO sang Perry Como's Can't Help Falling In Love in an opera-like fashion on Thursday's show, Demi Lovato joked that that Cowell sings the same way. Prompted by Lovato, 21, and fellow judge Kelly Rowland, the outspoken judge sang a little tune for the cheering audience but not without a little protest. "I am not going to sing! Ignore her," he said before belting out the song (about 2:13 minutes into video).
Rowland, 32, gushed over the judge's singing abilities, saying, "Simon I'm so proud of you. You did so good!"
Cowell jokingly responded, "Thank you darling. I'll be giving myself a record contract next."
