I am not from the UK, so I am not quite certain was Simon complimenting this young lad by comparing him to Robert or not. I do know I have been blown away from performances from the UK on the X-Factor, but maybe I am biased I enjoyed Adam Lambert's version better and Randy compared him to Robert as well and that I know was a compliment.
I'm not from the UK either, but it was totally a compliment. Besides there have been rumors since the Twilight Soundtrack came out that Simon has tried to get Rob to make an album.
compliment, was refering to the angstand vunerability
Sorry. Should have read :"compliment, was refering to the angst and vunerability"
I love this song, I heard it for the first time in Donnie Darko soundtrack. I didn't like this version of it, and I agree with Iluvthemovies -- I don't quite get what Simon Cowell ment by comparing Aidan with Rob...
Hi,@Iluvthemovies,..Yes I think it is a great compliment from Simon Cowell,..he said,"this is the second time I've been blown away by a performance,once was in america"..He also said about this singer being well into Robert Pattinson /Twilight thing,I think Simon is indirectly making a parallel comparison about Robert and this x-factor singer as both unknown..remember ,Robert was not a mega star yet,but his performance as Edward Cullen in Twilight had Blown people away all over the world ..so YES I think Mr Simon Cowell likes Rob and believes Rob is talented..Well that is my explanation and my view..ok..hugs to u all other favs,+Twilola...anyway where is Yaelfica? and Mrs.Deen?missing them..Hi guys hope ur ok!
Thanks for your interpretations, ladies. I don't watch American Idol and I'm not familiar with the X Factor so your insights were quite helpful. Recognition of Rob's multiple talents is just everywhere these days; it just shows again how big he has become. He continues to serve as a role model for aspiring artists which is really the greatest compliment to him.@twilightnan, I was just commenting about missing the other favs' comments in a previous post. Hope they are okay, too.Twilola
