The X Factor and America’s Got Talent creator, Simon Cowell, took the world by surprise when he announced his DJ contest show back in 2012. Thankfully for us, the show never saw the light of day, but it has now been revealed that when the production was still a reality, Simon approached famous British producer and DJ Fatboy Slim to be a judge.┬áNorman Quentin Cook just revealed that and more to the Sun. Going as far as criticizing Simon:

“As dance music gets taken over by people like Cowell, it becomes about being famous and money — the nasty side which I think for years it was relatively free of. Kids grow up thinking [that]┬áto be a DJ you’ve got to be sexy and bling … it’s not about that. I’m glad that’s one bandwagon he didn’t jump on.”

Norman added that he never wanted it to happen, telling Simon: “Please don’t do it. It’ll ruin it for the rest of us.”
