Simon Cowell, who is considered one of the most rigorous jury members of Britain’s X Factor, burst into tears after watching a video for the show’s charity single, which will raise money for children’s hospitals in the UK.
During the video, the Cowell lowered his head, then covered his face with his fists and started crying. The other members of the jury were trying to comfort him, and he was unable to speak. At one point, his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, came and hugged him.
“We’ve seen some absolutely amazing charity singles over the years. Being part of this is something that changes us,” one of the jury members commented. X factor stars joined together to raise money for Together For Short Lives and Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.
Simon Cowell is the highest-paid jury member on the show and he is known for being sharp-tongued and having a hard-nosed attitude.
