Simon Cowell says he “hated” World Idol. “I didn’t see the point, if I’m being honest with you,” he said. “They’ve all won. You’re making, you know, 10 winners losers, and the point was that Kelly had paid her dues.” The show’s winner, Kurt Nilsen, is “in agony” after being in a car crash. He “was in a stationary car with girlfriend Kristine Jacobsen when another vehicle ploughed into them at 70mph,” Digital Spy reports. He was released from the hospital and is recovering.
