Simon Cowell has slammed Beyonce, and her fellow collaborator Lady Gaga, calling them “boring singers.” The “American Idol” extraordinaire, new “X-Factor US” judge and English A&R music man, claims that he would have rejected Gaga had she ever auditioned for him.

“If you only ever heard Lady GaGa, she’s the most boring singer in the world. You’ve got to see her – you need TV. Same with Beyoncé. Or Katy Perry. We’re all about image. You have to have that X Factor,” he told the UK’s Mirror.

Do you agree? If you couldn’t see Bey…would she be as big?
