Simon Cowell, judge on the X-Factor, has began having that "Smells something unpleasant" look about him when he's unhappy with an act, or it could be Louis Walsh who is sitting near-by.
"He does that without realizing it, I think", Walsh told this reporter. "Maybe he practices it while he thinks no one is looking so he will be prepared to condemn some poor star hopeful. He's trying to keep up his image as a shithead. In fact, I think I smell that shithead!"
When asked about it, Cowell would just look at me and start doing it again.
Meanwhile, Cheryl Cole stated that maybe it was his "Happy Face".
"You should see the one that he uses when he's disgusted. I've seen some talented people stop in mid-act and break down crying after looking at him."
Several cameramen agreed. In fact, no one would really come forth and say exactly why Cowell had that "bad egg" look on his puss and none would talk for any length of time. One even started to show me how Cowell looked the first time Susan Boyle walked out on the stage that first time before Cowell heard her sing, but the cameraman finally just quit in the middle of the interview and walked off.
"Hey Pal", someone whispered loud. "Look at your shoe. You got like an inch of dog shit on it. There was a big pile I stepped over on the lawn outside."
"More as I come back in from scraping my shoe."
