Will a word from the X-Factor guru himself finally stop this year’s rumours about Madonna “snubbing” the show’s final tonight?
Simon Cowell told Digital Spy and others at The Sun’s Military Awards:
I don’t actually call her every week saying ‘Do you want to come on the show?’
I just said if she wanted to, we’d love to have her on. But there’s no snub. I just don’t think she’s promoting at the moment.
