‘X Factor' Judge Simon Cowell Slams Lily Allen After Fleur East Song Choice Comments

|

Simon Cowell has given his verdict on Lily Allen, following the singer’s tweets about Fleur East’s performance of ‘Uptown Funk’ on Saturday night’s ‘X Factor’.

Lily took to Twitter following Fleur’s performance, criticising the fact Fleur performed a track which hadn’t been released in the UK yet.

In a tweet which has since been deleted, Lily wrote: “It is an amazing song. Fleur did it justice but it’s still a great example of music industry corruption.”

“Why not be happy for another artist and say congratulations instead of thinking of some stupid.”

“Thank God I said no. She’d be a barrel of laughs.”

Following her triumphant performance on Saturday, Fleur will compete in the final against Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini this weekend.

It has also been announced that due to the track’s popularity, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have moved their release date forward and ‘Uptown Funk’ will now be in the running for Christmas number one.
