I think the first thing for Syco/J to be doing (or what they should already have done) is find out who Leona's audience are. If we're talking about a lot of women over the age of 35/40, then...

They compile the lists by guesswork, mainly. Because the terms of his deal with Sony prior to this year are unknown, it's impossible to know how much money he was seeing from international sales of...

Syco is a joint venture between Sony Music Entertainment and a holding company controlled by Simon Cowell. It's no longer a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony.

As you say, Roc Nation have a...

I wouldn't say it was a disaster for airplay in the UK. IIRC, I Got You peaked at #6 on airplay (then collapsed), Happy was #4. The airplay disaster was in the US. The UK audience just didn't seem to...

From what I've read, the music show that's in development isn't chart based. I think it'll be very hard to do. XF just has 2 acts a week and because of the success of the show has access to the...

By sales alone, it's Kelly Clarkson though that is partly because she won way back in 2002. But at this point in time, Susan Boyle is, by some distance, the biggest reality TV star in the world....

Simon, Louis and Sharon did work, IMO. Especially in series 2 but Sharon went from being shocking to being quite predictable and boring so by series 4 the novelty really had worn off.

The problem with Mariah is that people have this idea of her as some kind of crazy diva and I can't help but think that the reality of her on a judging panel for 2 hours will be a bit of a let down....

The single should have been great for her. But she didn't sing it well.

Anyway, that's not Cheryl's decision anyway. Simon picked the winners songs. And I'm pretty sure he picked "Sweet Dreams" as...

Pop Idol 1 averaged 7.27m and Pop Idol 2 averaged 8.24m so it was down from them. The XF1 finale was down just over 1m from PI2. Popstars was actually a bigger hit, with a 9.11m average for its first...

I think rushing out another album would be a mistake. I expect Syco will pull the plug shortly.

I think The Apprentice could do really well (at least from 9-10pm) with the SPOTY lead-in, especially as it ran past 9pm. Although You're Fired did drag a bit. I guess with the largely unknown...

On the surface, it's something to worry about. The format is almost identical to The X Factor except it has a new twist at the auditions. Of course, the big hope for XF isn't the format so much as...

I think it's a risk for her. If she fails at such a high profile level in the US, it risks damaging her UK image as well. Plus, she'll probably not even get as well paid for her first season of XF...

That is the land where Britney Spears became a star. ;)

And the good news is that they tolerate their talent show judges miming as well (Paula Abdul mimed on Idol a few years back).

I think it depends on how much she and Simon want it. If Simon really, really 100% wanted her on it and she was 100% sure about doing it, then she'd be there. As it happens, I don't think it makes a...

It would seem less contentious to award it for his TV work or "entertainment" rather than music. Though I doubt he'll get it yet.
