AGT judge Simon Cowell shaded singer Billie Eilish not once, but TWICE on Tuesday’s new live show. Two of the night’s acts chose to use her music, and Simon made it clear he was not a fan, despite fellow judge Howie Mandel’s disagreement.


Both contortionist Marina Mazepa and dance group Light Balance Kids chose to perform to Billie’s songs. The 17-year-old singer is a huge star these days, but music mogul Simon Cowell doesn’t seem very impressed.

Dancer and contortionist Marina Mazepa showed off a creepy routine set to Billie’s song “You Should See Me in a Crown.” Simon buzzed the act, and he was the only judge not to give her a standing ovation for the performance.

Simon said the routine was “boring,” and added, “I hated the music as well.” The crowd booed him throughout his critique.

This Ukrainian dance group performed a skeletal routine set to Billie’s popular track “Bad Guy,” which recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. At one point during their performance, the music transitioned into the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker.”

Julianne Hough seemed to be a fan of the music choice. “It’s amazing what a great song can do,” she said, “because it gives you inspiration to go above and beyond what you think is possible.”

Simon disagreed. “It didn’t have the wow factor, I didn’t like the music,” he said, calling the performance “tame” compared to the group’s previous routines.


Howie Mandel Is A Billie Eilish Fan

“First of all, I loved the music. I’m a Billie Eilish fan,” Howie said during his critique of Light Balance Kids.

“How can you not like the Billie Eilish song, Simon?” That earned a dismissive eye roll from Simon.

As it turns out, Howie is such a big Billie Eilish fan that he’s even been to one of her concerts. Back in June, Twitter users shared that they spotted him at one of Billie’s shows. When asked what he thought of it, he said, “Amazing.”

Maybe Howie should invite Billie to make a guest appearance on AGT one of these days.
