July 26, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Simon Cowell has gained notoriety by his terribly sarcastic comments. He is rather well known for booting people with less talent out of shows like the ‘American Idol’ and ‘Britain’s got Talent’.

However, one of the failed contestants has now decided to sue him for 2.5 million pounds ($3.8 milion) reports the Daily Mail. The 54 year old singer Emma Amelia Pearl Czikai was miffed when Simon commented that the song she sang was indeed a beautiful song but only while she was not singing it. He further went on to add that she had a horrible singing voice.

Czikai, had been dismissed by all three of the judges after she sang the power ballad, ‘You Raise Me Up’ on the show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2009. Emma Czikai defended herself by saying that the music track, backing her was too loud and responsible for her poor performance which was significantly off key. Cowell, however chose to tell her that it was time she took a reality check. It was neither the microphone nor the track which had been a problem it was her.

She also blasted the show as well as Simon Cowell who is being sued during her pre trial hearing. She stated that she had written to Cowell requesting him to refrain from using the clip of the embarrassing incident during the broadcast. She explained that she was suffering from a condition which prevented her from singing well at times.

She also said that the contestants were treated very much like slaves and were humiliated and bullied into saying things that would prove to be embarrassing for them. They do it to increase the viewership and make ‘good television’ she added.

She went on to say that the purpose behind her filing the suit is to get back her dignity and self respect. She also plans to give away the money that she hopes to earn from the law suit, to charity.
