Simon Cowell is "very happy" about Kelly Clarkson's success and thinks she's great on her new talk show.
The 59-year-old music mogul reunited with his former "American Idol" co-judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson to film an interview for their first-ever winner's new self-titled talk show and not only is the 'Britain's Got Talent' star thrilled with how far the 2002 champion has come, he thinks she's "incredible" in her new job.
He said: "She was brilliant, I have to say, really good. She was an absolute natural. She's incredible...
"She's very loyal, gets the whole thing about where we started from... I love her and I'm happy for her."
Simon found it both "hilarious and "surreal" getting the original 'Idol' team back together for the interview, though presenter Ryan Seacrest couldn't be there in person.
