Simon Cowell pressed his X

Simon Cowell requested to remove his “X” after watching her perform

We all know that we can’t tell a person’s abilities by just looking and talking at them. On this video Simon Cowell requested to remove his “X” after watching the contestant’s “Exercises on a Chair” performance.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.


Keri Graham, 43 years old, a housewife auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. She called her number as “Exercises on a Chair” and the whole crowd got clueless on what will happen.

A few seconds after starting his routine, Simon suddenly pressed the “X” button, signalling that he’s not happy with Graham’s performance.

After that, the background music suddenly switched to “Freak Me” by the
R&B group, Silk. Then Graham started to remove her long sleeves and
long and her long skirts. Then the studio audience started to get wild and Simon got amused.

Graham started to perform her profession, she’s a Chair Dancer and she’s using her skills to tone up and exercise.
Cowell seems happy with the results and changed his earlier decision. He
requested to remove his “X” and said “Yes” to Keri Graham together with
the other judges.
