Simon Cowell, known as a jury member of various talent shows, has since Wednesday a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

 

At the small ceremony that was held at the unveiling of the tile many stars were present. Colleague jury members were Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B, as were his ‘discoveries’ Kelly Clarkson, Louis Tomlinson and Adam Lambert.

Clarkson, winner of the first season of American Idol , briefly took the floor and praised Cowell’s impact on the music industry and his ability to find new talent. “He appreciates that you are yourself, which is unique in this industry,” said the singer.

The 58-year-old Cowell came into action on Tuesday in America’s Got Talent . He was deeply impressed by Glennis Grace during the show, whose performance he called “brilliant, classy and fantastic”.
