Brit Simon Cowell finds Bob Dylan boring

American Idol judge Simon Cowell has gone on record that he thinks iconic rock musician Bob Dylan is “boring” and he is personally glad that the hit Fox show has yet to produce a winner similar to Dylan’s style.

In an interview with Playboy magazine, Cowell stated that Dylan “bores him to tears,” and that he would rather listen to Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s music to any of Dylan’s vast catalog of songs.

Cowell further stated he believed that if the show produced singers of Dylan’s qualities it would fail to gain an audience. In the article, Cowell states “If I had ten Dylans in the final of American Idol, we would not be getting 30 million viewers a week.” He continued by stating that Dylan would not make American Idol a better show.
