Speaking to STV, Cowell said: “It felt empowering. Everyone went nuts and they were really emotional. They are really great kids.I like the fact that they wrote their own song based on life experiences. People are going to root for them and they’ve got this great friendship that is so obvious when you watch them together.” The 54-year-old also admitted he thought the singers could win the talent show. “When you’ve got that kind of support from the public going into the finals, it helps. So I think they’re going to do well,” he said.
