"If I had 10 Dylans in the final of American Idol we would not get 30 million viewers. I don't believe Bob Dylan would make American Idol better show. A singing poet? It just bores me to tears. I prefer Kelly's music to Dylan's."

What an immense buffoon this man is. It seems he left school at 16 to work in EMI's postal room and his lack of education shows. Sure, he has his finger on the pulse of those people who like the teletubbies and material of that ilk. However, Tom Clancy is more popular than Shakespeare--but does that mean the Bard is inferior?

No one would criticize Cowell if he just kept his mouth shut and did what he does best: look for pappy middle of the road talent which, unfortunately, is very popular with large masses of the population. Instead he decides criticize something that he clearly doesn't understand ("do you Mr. Jones?"). In any case, we can be sure that Dylan and his oeuvre will be remembered and appreciated long after Cowell and the bland material he "discovers" has been long since forgotten.
