Although it was Kate Middleton that was getting married to Prince William, Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton seemed to be garnering heavy attention during the wedding as well. Not an easy thing to do when your sister is marrying a Prince.
‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell was one of the people that took notice of Pippa and said that if she wanted a deal to do just about anything, he’d sign her in a heartbeat. Cowell said;
“I haven’t heard her sing, but if she walked in and said, ‘I want to be a TV star,’ I would sign her on the spot. She has the ‘X Factor’. To overshadow your sister when she’s the one getting married? That was impressive.”
While we’re not exactly sure that Pippa “overshadowed” her sister during the wedding, she did receive a lot of notice.
No one from Pippa’s camp has commented on Simon’s ‘offer’, but it’s interesting that someone with Cowell’s reputation for basing his talent choices on who is the most talented, would sign someone without seeing if they can sing, dance or act.
