Pop Idol star Darius Danesh has revealed to the Sunday Mail why he didn’t sign with Simon Cowell. “I passed him a demo of ‘Colourblind’ and said: ‘I’d like you to hear this song’.” Danesh explained. “He threw it on the table. ‘Don’t worry about these things. I’ve got a bunch of songs that are proven hits. I’ve thought about it and the right song to launch your career is ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling’.’ I was stunned. I couldn’t believe it. Yeah, pull the other one, it’s got bells on, I thought. I half- expected a man with a camera to come from around the corner at that point, saying, “Got you!'” Explaining his decision to turn down Cowell, Danesh added, “I realized I had to find some way of getting out of the situation I was in. I was tied into something that prevented me fulfilling my dreams as a singer- songwriter. It was a sticky situation. I didn’t know what to do. It occurred to me it might be a big mistake to turn down a deal from such a brilliant businessman. I respected Simon because I believed he would achieve anything he set out to do. But I didn’t want to make a career out of singing covers.”
