Prior to the start of Kristy’s performance, the judge had already reclined his chair and was rolling his eyes. Kristy’s performance on ‘AGT’ was one of the best ever seen on the show, despite Simon’s skepticism and preconceptions. Her innovative use of an animated backdrop and her inclusion of it in her performance seamlessly merged art and story-telling.

A fan commented, “Lot of us know Simon is a really good talent finder and I give him that credit for sure but I don’t understand why he still giving hard time to some clients by his body languages or his speech before they start, even though Simon got surprised many times after he underestimated some clients before they perform. Please don’t judge them before their performances start Simon.”

“Simon is always too quick to judge, he’s the type of guy that you wouldn’t want to hang out with lol. She didn’t even start performing yet and his reaction was like “eh, don’t care” whilst the other judges were looking forward to it. Simon, you need to judge after the performances, not before it 😂,” wrote another fan.

“Simon Cowell had his eye-rolling Susan Boyle moment. Don’t judge a person before his or her act. He should have known better,” added a fan. “Love this!!! Loved Simon being put in his place too and then standing to clap. So quick to judge and ended up eating humble pie real quick..,” seconded a fan.
