Simon Cowell Says Dylan Is a Dud

According to the New York Post, Simon Cowell recently indirectly refuted the long-standing (and patently ridiculous) rumor that Bob Dylan might appear as a guest judge on a future American Idol by saying that he prefers Kelly Clarkson's music to Dylan's.

"I've never bought a Dylan record," claims the Idol maker. "A singing poet? It just bores me to tears." But he didn't stop there. He goes on to say that a Dylan-inspired season of American Idol would suck. "I've got to tell you, if I had 10 Dylans in the final of American Idol, we would not be getting 30 million viewers a week. I don't believe the Bob Dylans of this world would make American Idol a better show."
