Simon Slams Idol’s Lil Rounds’ Rose On Movie Night

American Idol contestant Lil Rounds felt the brunt of Simon Cowell’s frustration on Tuesday’s Movie night on American Idol. Telling rounds she was not “the artist I believe we met seven or eight weeks ago,” Cowell dismissed rounds performance of Bette Midler’s “The Rose”. Defending herself by arguing that she put her own spin on it by inserting R&B, Rounds responded to Cowell’s displeasure before exiting the stage. Cowell also told Rounds she was “getting this completely wrong. You had nice moments in there but there are no excuses anymore”. Rounds will face elimination Wednesday.
