Simon Cowell: Why I came back to Britain’s Got Talent

Simon Cowell has revealed the reason he returned to Britain's Got Talent this series.

Speaking at the London auditions the music mogul told one of the BGT auditionees: "This is why I came back to this competition. To find someone like you."

SiCo was talking about 18-year-old Chelsea, an admin office worker, who got a standing ovation (and wowed omg! who were there) for her rendition of 'Purple Rain'.

He gushed: "I had a feeling you were going to be good. It was stunning.

"We're hearing a lot of people trying to sound like Amy Winehouse and Adele. You look like a popstar."

Fellow judge Alesha Dixon agreed with the 52-year-old saying: "You've wiped the floor with most singers we've seen before."

And comedian and fellow judge David Walliams added she was a "beautiful girl" who "could be a superstar".

But Simon has revealed he wasn't always certain he wanted to be back on the famous panel - after being absent last year.

He said: "I am really happy to be back on the BGT judging panel.

"I wasn't sure first of all if I wanted to do it, but now I've got stuck in it's a big, big difference being there from the beginning compared to last year when I just had to come in and do the live shows.

"You don't feel connected. Now I feel connected and I think the talent is better now that I am back."

Britain's Got Talent is back on our screens at 8pm this Saturday night!
