Simon Cowell sat down with Jennifer Hudson and talked about the days of American Idle and Hudson’s elimination. Cowell was notoriously harsh on Hudson , declaring that the Hudson was “out of her depth.”

“Why was the show so big in those days? It would be because of people like you. It’s a combination of talent, determination, and real personality, and even though we had that banter, you and I, it was always that. I always knew how determined you were. You were funny and you took it with grace because you kind of got it. I always thought that about you.”
