              I love how they talk about how great America is but then we find out at the results that Americans can’t vote correctly.

                Just by the way he presented himself when he first appeared on the scene, Simon really made me dislike his attitude towards people and their American Dream during AGT just by the push of the red button and his harsh comments. And as a baseball coach, I would always push the players to try harder but of course we devoted plenty of time. Though I pushed for greatness, I NEVER forgot to applaud and compliment them during practices and games, even when the play being made didn't quite go our way because in the end it was never about the win or was always about the effort, the determination, and hard work put forth, which in turn, made them CHAMPS year after year!!! And that's something Simon was lacking, to my opinion.....BUT then something happened!!!!

                Maybe a new life in the US or is it the US in his new life? Now I find myself stopping a channel search when I see him on the screen just to listen to what he has to say. God bless to whoever or whatever made him change his way of viewing the lives of others.

                                It was good to hear how humbling it has been for you, Simon. I believe you are quite extraordinary with your expertise in identifying great talent. I think you were hard when you needed to be but also able to illustrate genuine compassion. You are very good at pairing individual's talents while helping them, without their realizing it, build a team skillset. Have you considered pairing Cristina Ramos with Emanne Beasha?

                                THANK YOU SIMON :) we love you too. I really needed to hear this today bc these agt vid-comments of full of angry Indians accusing americans of being racists aholes after VU's 4th place. ... They feel the group was USED for views. (?) They dont seem to appreciate the exposure or the millions of new fans. Many americans loved them, but they act as if the show was jaded. So Im glad you like us, ..and very happy Kodi won! xD

                                  there were some with way much more talent than the one producer Cowell picked to win as other's in the top 5 did not have a big sob story
                                  It is no longer a talent contest, even thou it tries to masquerade as one. it does not take a MENSA member to see what happened. Most are not even from the US any more... It's a total sham.

                                  I thought Simon seemed so much nicer and happier in recent years and I thought it was the birth of his son that changed him but now I’m thinking it’s probably just all the sunshine he’s experiencing in America that’s filling his heart lol

                                                  There is no such thing as the “American Dream”. The way anyone succeeds is by who they know, connections, and having money. This video is pure propaganda! Not everyone in the USA has the same equal rights, protections and privileges!

                                                    You can have success in America but you have to work hard for it and you have to be prepared to fail multiple times before succeeding. Simon expresses that in the video. The American Dream isn’t a charity. It’s a dream for a reason. You have to “achieve” it. The point is that you CAN succeed, period, in America. Because there is opportunity in America. And that opportunity is open to anyone. Of course certain people are more privileged and will have an easier time at achieving their dreams but that does not mean that you can’t. You can change your situation in America. You are not stuck in a miserable life. Try, try, and then try again. Try until you’ve made it. That’s the American way. Look at the Halal Guys in NYC. Three guys from Eygpt who started with one halal food cart and now are franchised worldwide. That’s the type of success story you can only find in America.

                                                            Only a very few are.... those who have real talent and keep at it .
                                                            A sad fact of today is that many thing that only way to make a dream come true is to appear on a BS TV show and.. made into a star overnight .

                                                            Lovely — he’s a big Showbiz mogul with lots of connections I doubt he’ll be packing his bags permanently when he can just come up with other shows. Also, like I said he is permanently based in UK so no need to pack his bags when he’s already there most of the time.

                                                            Uhm.. he’s got shows in UK as well. He’s always traveling back and forth, and his kid is actually studying in the UK.

                                                                  I thought youd recognize the accents simply bc you have better grammar than a lot of english writers.

It's understandable that I couldn't pick up that distinction. You yourself, can you tell if a person is from Botswana or South Africa, even if u can,It's understandable that u can't. Just educate me,not deem my shine like's not really necessary.
