What are some singers who have or had great careers but would have gotten put down by Simon Cowell when he was a judge on "American Idol"?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) May 18th, 2015

I often hear entertainers who have good to great careers but do not have spectacular voices on the radio or from other sources. In fact, if they had to sing a cappella with no music behind them, they would sound lousy. What entertainers would you place in that category? I know some people would name Janis Joplin who had a great career but to some not a great voice?

Meat Loaf from Rocky Horror…. Also known as Marvin Lee Aday, he was the softball coach for the high school in Redding, CT in the 1990’s.

Hahaha, this is fucking hilarious, Cowell is a complete tit who only rates cheesy, crap, talentless morons.
Therefore, the vast majority of notable performers would have been ignored by the wanker, unless they sang shallow, mass produced, cliche ridden garbage, they’re his speciality.
