Video: The 10 Year-Old Girl That Cowell Signed From YouTube

Who knew that Simon Cowell had time in his busy schedule to trawl across the internet looking for more talent to ride all the way to the bank? The news has come as a big surprise to us – we can only assume that he hasn’t found our “guide to kicking your own arse” movie yet. However The Independent has reported that the X Factor boss has signed Canadian ten year-old Heather Russell after watching internet videos that originally caught the eye of Canadian Idol judge, Zeck Werner. “Simon just loved her,” a SyCo spokesperson told the paper. “He said she was amazingly talented from the first time he saw her. “Simon will put his stamp on her,” said a source. “But there is something rare about this child,” he said. “She is a natural entertainer and sings for all the right reasons.”
