While Simon Cowell is looking forward to nurturing new acts, he didn’t have much encouragement for the last ‘Pop Idol’ winner, Michelle McManus, runners-up Sam and Mark or wannabe singer Jordan. “It just hasn’t worked out for Michelle and I don’t know if she’s going to release any more material,” he told The Mirror. “It’s the same for Sam and Mark. The public has grown weary of that formula and that’s why we’ve changed things with this show, by throwing it open to people of all ages. I’m going after the 30-plus market now. And I’m not going to be working with Jordan either. She has a good voice and if it was three years ago, I would definitely have signed her up. But now the market has changed and I wouldn’t be able to do anything with her.”
