Simon Cowell shares future plans of son Eric: ‘It’ll be total torture!’

Simon Cowell made interesting revelation about his son Eric, revealing he is yearning to give audition for Britain’s Got Talent.

The nine-year-old has been a great help to the music mogul as he judges the current America’s Got Talent season, Simon told Entertainment Tonight.

Speaking of his little boy, he shares with fiancée Lauren Silverman, the reality TV show judge said Eric is a “great barometer” for talent when it comes to the performances on the show.

"Well, it's brilliant because he's to my left, so I always look over, and, you know the really crazy act tonight, who was like swallowing swords? [Well] he's jumping up and down in his seat literally and he's making me laugh so much," Simon said.

"And with kids you can't fake it, you know? If they like something, they like it. If they don't like it, they're bored," the famous television personality added.

Sharing his future plans, Simon revealed "Now decided he's going to audition for Britain's Got Talent. I think he wants to be in a rock band."

"He loves Green Day," Simon continued. "That's going to be total torture. I mean, of all the things I've ever done, this will probably be the hardest, because he does play drums. [He's] going to drum and sing! I went, 'Oh God, no.'"

"But he's really serious about it," shared Simon. "I don't know what it is. Maybe because all these kids are auditioning and now he wants to be up there with his friends... I think, hopefully, he'll be sitting there in ten or less years time."

However, Simon Cowell has made it clear to his son Eric that he will not be treated any differently than any other contestant on the show.

Speaking with Daily Mail, Cowell said he told Eric he would receive the same kind of tough judgement from his side just like other contestants on the famous talent show.

“I've said to him, 'If you are not good, you are not going on the show. And that means you've got to rehearse. Sorry, you have to take a lot of lessons, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,” the judge said.

“He is like, ‘Okay.’ And then I think he lost interest, but I think he just, I don't know. He's just up for it for some reason. But if he's terrible, no, you won't see him on the show,” he added.
