Simon Cowell Horrified And Insulted By Castmate’s Gift

News, Reality TV

Simon Cowell is less than impressed about an insulting statue of him that was erected inside a Las Vegas hotel.

The America’s Got Talent judge was gifted the gold bust by his co-star Sofia Vergara as a prank on TV earlier this year. That statue has now been placed inside the aforementioned hotel.

Insiders revealed the statue, which has a huge nose and enormous teeth, has now been placed inside the Luxor hotel. That happens to be where his live talent show format is now being filmed.

The music mogul has shared his views about that statue before. Clearly understanding that the bust was a job from Vergara, he’d previously called it ugly.

There might be some Simon Cowell fans from the UK who might notice there are some similarities between the reality star’s bust and another.

Another bust that was quite similar was created for Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.  His fans were all in agreement that it looked nothing like him.

Creator Emanuel Santos was ridiculed for the bronze bust. That statue was created to mark the renaming of Madeira’s airport to Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport.

Simon Cowell Not Loving The Joke

The America’s Got Talent judge might not be loving the bust, but it could also be bugging him simply because he’s got bigger things to worry about.

The show has not always taken place inside a Las Vegas hotel. In fact, the move to that location is pretty big news.

Fans flooded the area in order to get a look at the talent competition live. That meant that they also got to see the bust, which was part of an interactive display inside the area.

That meant that more than 3,000 fans recently got to lay their eyes on the bust which Simon Cowell has called both embarrassing and insulting.

Show Takes Off

That particular audience gave standing ovations over two shows to performers. That included magician Dustin Tavella, comedian Preacher Lawson, singer Kodi Lee and the acrobatic act Duo Transcend. All of those performers took the stage on the same night, giving the audience quite the show.

“I’ve always said you have to see it in real life instead of just watching on TV because to be that close up to something,” Simon Cowell said about the performances. “To hear these singers and see the acts, it’s a whole different experience.”

The music mogul went on to explain that while it was a big deal for the audience, it was also a very big deal for him personally.

“Honestly, for me it’s a dream come true,” he said. “I never ever thought I would have a show on in Vegas.”

It appears the success of the show at least, made Simon Cowell forget about his hideous bust for a short period, at least.
